How to convert thermador pg366blp to natural gas

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.

Want to convert from natural gas to lp propane


A conversion usually consist of new burner(s)/nozzle(s)/orrifice(s) and either a new regulator/gas valve..

Some gas cook stoves or ranges come with the ability to run on either fuel and the spare nozzle or orrifice will be attached somewhere on the stove.. usually under the range top.. the gas valve may have a small lever that you simply move to the preferred fuel setting.. NAT or LP.

The appliance must have a rating plate that states it can be converted.. and if so..typically a conversion kit will be available or may have been included in the appliance package.

LP Gas runs at a higher pressure.. making a broad statement here.. converting from Natural to LP is more dangerous if the proper steps are not followed then converting from LP to Natural.. which typically just results in a weak flame.. regardless. it's still dangerous.

Many modern appliances will have a warning label stating it can only be used with a certain type of fuel. Heed the warning.

If your appliance did not ship with the alternate fuel kit or has a warning label.. do not attempt to convert it.. it will be much safer and cheaper to buy the proper appliance.

Best of luck.. and be careful

What is the product # for the conversion kit from nat gas to lp? who carries this item? Does the conversion kit come with a regulator?


Some Thermador ranges are not field convertable from natural gas to LP. The PRG364EDG falls in this category. If you have one that is not convertiable; you will need a different range.

The PG364GEBS is not a listed unit at Thermador; I've found it for sale at AJ Madison. Since that vendor doesn't list the conversion kit (and they sell ones for other Thermador ranges), I do not believe this is a field convertible unit.

Thermador has manuals and installation guides for many of their appliances here: http://www.thermador.com/trade/specifications-guides . Most Thermador ranges come with the installation guide, as well as the owner's guide, if you still have your documentation. Otherwise, try the Thermador site for the documentation (check if the company uses a different part number internally). If the conversion kit is available, the part number will be provided in the section on the Gas Requirements and Hookup. If it isn't, the installation guide will clearly state that fact.

Other models are convertible. The PRD304GHU uses the conversion unit: PALPKITHC. You will need to confirm your model since the number of orifices will depend on the number of burners and the low simmer feature. (The PRD304GHU is also a 4 burner with 2 of them extra-low simmer burners model.)

For units that are convertible, you can usually order the part through the same stores that sell the appliance. Alternatively, have your gas service installer order the parts. The installation guide for the conversion kit will be included in the kit. For most ranges that are field convertable, the regulator converts from natural gas to LP by rotating a cap in the regulator by 180 degrees. (Take out the part, turn it over so that LP shows and reinstall.)

I hope this helps and I wiish that I had better news for you.
