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.

SOURCE: Convert natural gas stove to LP

Nothing is imposible but this stove was not made to be converted. It is a not a classic crank down and flip model. Your best bet would be to get your LP gas supplier to do it.

SOURCE: Converting a GE Profile Gas Range from LP to natural gas

GE ships gas ranges set for natural gas, with the LP orifices included, usually on a metal tab held with one screw right near the regulator (where the gas connects to the range). If the range was converted to LP, the person who did the conversion was suppose to put the natural gas orifices back in that holder. If they are missing, comment back on the exact model number and I can look up the part number(s) for you.

SOURCE: Gas range burner flame too high and too yellow.

Did it work OK in that location before the changes?
Sounds like you used Natural gas parts instead of LP.
Lp orifices have smaller holes than Nat.

SOURCE: Thermador PG484GGBS: How to convert from Natural Gas to LP?

I just did it with mine, I called thermador and they told me the number of the conversion kit to buy for my model.

I bought the kit from the retailer and did it myself, not very difficult.

no explosions yet :)

Converting from LP back to natural gas. Frigidaire says it is too old to get orifice part numbers. They want me to buy the burner tubes. Ideas other than drilling?


Some ranges have a storage place for the orifices. They may be still in the range. Look near where the gas line connects to the range. NEVER drill an orifice. You will destroy the fine wires that swirl the gas into the burner. You'll get an un controllable flame.

I converted my 40'' Figidaire range to LP a few years back when I did not have access to natural gas. Now I need to convert it back. I do not still have the old parts and there seems to be no ''Natural gas...


I am having almost the same problem. Frigidaire told me to replace all 5 mixing tubes, ~$385, yeah right. They don't have the orifices itemized as an individual part, so no-one carries them, just the LP conversion kit. Another repair/parts guy advised me to drill out the orifices. Some other threads/blogs give the diameter to drill. Basically, since natural gas is 0.5 psi, you need a larger hole than your current propane orifices provide. Please speak up if you find out anything, I will try to do the same. Good luck.

Flames are extremely uneven and high


okay, DO NOT USE THIS STOVE ON LP GAS.

It's not intended to be used with LP gas, because LP gas requires a smaller orifice than natural gas. Call your propane supplier IMMEDIATELY...DO NOT USE THIS STOVE UNTIL IT IS CONVERTED TO LP GAS (if it's even possible)...this is extremely dangerous and you could hurt yourself if you continue to use LP gas on a stove that was designed to run on natural gas.

Change from lp to propane on my whirlpool stove


Propane is LP...(i.e. Liquid Petroleum)

The burners are working only as a fluke. It is extremely dangerous to operate a natural gas stove on propane. STOP USING IT IMMEDIATELY. Call your local propane supplier and ask them about converting it to LP/Propane.
