My Repair & Advice
I converted a natural gas Thermador range to LP. IN order to do this the jets had to be changed over to the LP size. Since the two parts were welded I had to cut the venturi tube nut off. To do so I used a step drill bit (up to 3/4" diameter) and cut through the top of the venturi tube from the inside out. Once the tube's top was cut through the venturi and jet holder assembly was easily removed by disconnecting the gas-line. With the assembly out a new jet was installed and the unit re-installed in a matter of a few moments. Thanks for the quick shipping the repairs were done and ready for installation in short order. The price for the parts was reasonable, the shipping fees were great and the quality top-notch.
