SOURCE: LP conversion for Thermador 4 burner range top

I have a Thermadore 6 burner gas cooktop PCG366E purchased January 08. I purchased the LP conversion kit, they only make one kit for all models. The instructions included with the kit were written for an older model and have not been updated by Thermador. The gas regulator is located next to gas inlet pipe. You have to get at it from above. Remove the 2 star burners over that side of the cooktop. You will need a 20mm socket to remove the nut at the center of the star burner. Lift it off and disconnect the wire to the ignitor ( You need to push on the spring lock in order to seperate the the connector terminal). Remove the stainless steel pan and then remove the metal pan underneath ( you will need a Torxs bit for this screw or vise grips). You should now see the regulator. At the top of the regulator is a cap with the letters NG visible. Twist this a 1/4 turn ccw, lift up and turn over to expose the letters LP reinsert. The regulator is now ready. You will need to replace the orifice tips at each burner. Use a 7mm socket with an extension. Put a piece of tape in the socket to hold the orifice in place while you insert it. You also need to adjust the valves. You must pull off the knobs and and remove the trim bezel. If you look through the screw hole on the right you will see a screw head (bypass screw). Insert long skinny flat blade screwdriver through the hole and turn the screw CW all the way (about 1/4 to 1/2 turn in my case). My cooktop had two burners with a low simmer feature, This devise is located in front of the bypass screw. It has a hole in it but does not align well with the head of the bypass screw and makes it difficult to turn the scew. Thats it, I hope this info has been helpful. I have not yet connected the propane therefore have not tested the unit but it should work.

Yes you can convert to LP gas. go to this web site to get the parts.
http://www.vulcanhart.com/manuals/F-30536.pdf
Go to page 9 and look at parts # 57 - 60 that is the part you need to change. You need to know the sea level that you are at though so you get the right part.
Now if you go to page 8 you will find where it goes part # 53 thru 61
To order the parts go to this web site

SOURCE: Can grill be safely converted to griddle on Thermador PRG486GLUS?

http://www.instawares.com/add-griddle-top-2.133-1002.0.7.htm

try this.

If it doesnt fit your specs. then i would suggest u find a thermador parts place and begin to buy the parts for the griddle as replacement parts. find a model of the stove set up that you want and make a list of all the parts that go to the griddle attachment.

My guess is that the reason for the flat "No" on the retrofit was that griddles require a thermostat similar to the one on the oven and broilers do not. So if their is no room behind the face plate where the knob would go then you can't put in a griddle. The other issue might be that the burners for the griddle wont line up with the brackets that are holding up all the broiler burners now. The griddle burner looks exactly like the one from the over only smaller so it has to line up strait where a regular front and back burner have to line up offset. maybe since you have the broiler already that should not be an issue? Then the problem is finding the griddle top it self that is going to be spendy. I think the link i gave at the top is your best bet. good luck.

Griddle top replacement


well this is different, but sounds like fun. I would just Repair the gas griddle you have. from the sound of it you need to replace the 3 or 4 tstats that control the griddle. If you are in a Metro area you can find a dealer for Robert Shaw and get the parts you need. but you may also start at http://www.garland-group.com/. everything there will be newer but you will be able ask about where the data plate is and then get parts lists. call a small comercial kitchen repair company and ask for help there too.

Need to replace griddle thermostat


My husband and I just had to check out our griddle on our 48 inch Viking rangetop. You remove the grates and the grate holders on either side of the griddle..it just pops out. Then you raise your griddle up about 4" to remove your thermastats., noting the position they are in so when you replace you can put back correctly. After pulling the thermastats out, then you lift the griddle out. Griddle is extremely heavy so be prepared to have close surface to lay it. Hope this helps.

Thermador Gas Range - Griddle ignition will not spark


I have a Thermador Gas Range PG364GDBS - Oven, 4 burners, and center griddle. All are gas. The four burners and gas oven work fine. The griddle just stopped working, no spark. Turning on the griddle control, the gas valve opens(hear it), gas flows (smell it), but the ignitor will not spark (no loud or faint spark that I can hear). I got a replacement ignition device (mount at the burner) thinking it might be the problem, but still no spark. I checked the AC voltage at the terminal and measured 39 VAC between the terminal and ground. Not sure if that is the correct voltage. Any insights or advice would be great.

Both ovens do not heat max heat is 150 to 200


good luck.  We have the same range and have had issues with the ovens since the range was installed.  The overn does not heat evenly on convenction or bake.  Thermadore doesn't stand behind the product and neither does the distributor.  They tell us that Thermador isn't standing behind the product so there isn't anything that can be done.  We spent $8000 for an oven that burns the back corners of everything we bake.
