Hi my name isXXXXX have been an appliance servicer since 1992.
I will be happy to assist you today on finding out the answer for you. But first the model you supplied is PRDSS30. The model number appears to be good but something is wrong with it. The PRD is correct but something happens after that. Can you recheck the model number and post back? Best Regards !

OK, finally.


 


The Model No. is RDDS30VRS


Serial No. is 81070033


LR/RF Burner 11000 BTU


LF/RR Burner 9100 BTU


P/N 14-33-606


 


FYI, just for reference, I removed the jets and found these numbers:


(2) Large Burners were marked 104


(2) Small Burners were marked 90


again these would have been installed for LP


 


Additionally, I was able to switch the regulator from LP to NG by flipping around the plastic piece under the cap.

Sorry for the delay, but per Thermador / Bosch the oven is bought special made to be NG. You can convert it to LP but Thermador is stating it would be a fire hazard if retrofitted to work. On your typical ranges conversions can be done, but on this model it can't. The previous owner had to had it retrofitted. So basically you just need to buy all original parts and hope the previous owner did not damage any mounts.

part# XXXXX pressure regulator
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

I agree I just need to put original parts back in. My original question is, what parts? Do I have to put in new jet holder assemblies or can I just put in new jets and if so what size and/or part numbers would they be? I have only been able to find the complete assemblies on-line, but I am asking if there are sources to just purchase the jets alone? Can you provide any part numbers ?


 


For what it is worth, I don't believe the information they gave you is correct because the UL label on the unit (which has the model number and serial numbers) has BTU values and manifold pressures listed for both LP and NG and the original regulator is convertible. But that is really neither here nor there, since I want to put it back to original NG service.


 


Thank you and I await your reply.


 

Expert:  Appliance Parts replied 1 year ago.
You may call Thermador for verification on the conversions and complete part numbers:

Monday - Friday: 5:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. PST

Saturday: 6:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. PST

You will have to change the complete assemblies from them.
