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.

SOURCE: LP conversion
If you can turn a wrench you will be able to do the conversion yourself, just about all gas ranges come with the LP conversion kit attached to the back of the range usually around the gas regulator but sometimes it can be anywhere on the back, and the your owners manual has step by step instructions on how to do the conversion. Good luck !

Your conversion jets are usually located beneath the hinge area or the back panel on that stove and are mounted on a plate which holds all of the LP jets in a row. there is no need to buy a conversion kit, since it is already supplied. The jets mount on the burner control itself as it enters the gas flow tube, and the oven jet mounts just before the large burner under the plate in your oven area. Just remove that large oven floor plate and you will see it.
