Question about Thermador PGR366 Gas Kitchen Range
When I bought this stove my original intent was to buy a gas stove and an lp conversion kit. For some reason the thermador sales rep felt it neccessary to talk me out of it. He suggested that the only difference between buying a ng model and converting it to lp and buying an lp model and converting it to ng when ng became available was when I would have to do the work to convert. This wasn't a hard case to make because I had just buil the house and was sick to death of working on it. So I ordered the factory propane model and a ng conversion kit. The kit got dropped off of the invoice and when I tried to reorder it they would just drop it again and tell me I never ordered it when I inquired. I finally gave up until the time came when ng became available to me. Now they say such a kit doesn't exist and that the model of stove I bought cannot be converted. This leaves me in a real pickle because I can't afford to replace the stove, since it is a 36" stove and I have 36" space in my cabinets there are no cheap stoves I can run out and replace it with just to get by. Also as you can well imagine a $6000, 100,000 btu stove that can only run on propane is going to be hard o get rid of, especially with propane costs at an all time high. My real question is is it just a matter of oriface size? Because I'm more than capable of drilling out an oriface I just can't get anyone to tell me if anything else need be done. Is my stove really built completely different than the ng model? Because it really doesn't make sense from a manufacturers standpoint to do that. If so can I just buy the components to make it a natual gas range? Anything would be cheaper than buying a whole new stove.
