IMPORTANT INSTALLATION INFORMATION
This appliance has been tested in
accordance with ANSI Z21.1b-1993
Standard for Household Cooking
Appliances (USA) and in accordance
with CAN 1.1-M81 Domestic Gas
Ranges (CANADIAN).
absence of local codes the appliance
should be installed in accordance with
the National Fuel Gas Code ANSI
Z223.1 Current Issue and National
Electrical Code ANSI/NFPA 70-Current
Issue. In Canada, installation must be
in accordance with the CAN 1-B149.1
and .2 – Installation Codes for Gas
Burning Appliances and/or local codes.
It is strongly recommended that this
appliance be installed in conjunction
with a suitable overhead vent hood.
(See Step 1 for Ventilation Requirements.) Due to the high heat capability
of this unit, particular attention should
be paid to the hood and duct work
installation to assure it meets local
building codes. To eliminate risk of
burns or fire caused by reaching
over heated surface units, cabinet
storage located above the surface
units should be avoided.
Verify the type of gas being used at the
installation site. As shipped from the
factory, all units are configured for use
on natural gas. For use with propane
gas, the unit must be converted. Field
conversion for use with propane must
only be done by qualified service
personnel. Contact the dealer when
the unit was purchased or Thermador
(800/735-4328). The field conversion
kit for all Professional Series ranges is
Thermador Model PROLPKIT, PN 35-00-549.
Check local building codes for the
proper method of appliance installation.
Local codes vary. Installation, electrical
connections and grounding must
comply with all applicable codes. In the
For installations at 6,000 feet above sea
level or higher, it is necessary to de-rate
the appliance. Contact your local gas
supplier or Thermador (800/735-4328)
for the appropriate high altitude
conversion information.
This appliance is equipped with an
intermittent/interrupted ignition device
that cycles the two far left surface
burners on and off when in the
ExtraLow® setting.
CAUTION:
(1) When connecting the unit to
propane gas, make certain the
propane gas tank is equipped with
its own high pressure regulator in
addition to the pressure regulator
supplied with this unit. The
maximum gas pressure to this
appliance is not to exceed 14.0
inches water column from the
propane gas tank regulator.
(2) This unit is designed as a
cooking appliance. Based on safety
considerations never use it for
warming or heating a room.
STEP 1: VENTILATION REQUIREMENTS
CAUTION: Ventilation hoods and
blowers are designed for use with single
wall ducting. However, some local
building codes or inspectors may
require double wall ducting. Consult
local building codes and/or local
agencies, before starting, to assure that
hood and duct installation will meet
local requirements.
It is strongly recommended that a
suitable exhaust hood be installed above
the range. Downdraft ventilation should
not be used. The table below indicates
the Thermador hoods, by model number,
that are recommended for use with the
30", 36", and 48" ranges.
1. Select Hood and Blower Models:
• For wall installations, the hood width
must, at a minimum, equal the width of
the range cooking surface. Where space
permits, a hood larger in width than the
cooking surface may be desirable for
improved ventilation performance.
• Hood blower speeds should be
variable to reduce noise and loss of
heated or air conditioned household air
when maximum ventilation is not
required. Normally, the maximum
blower speed is only required when
using the grill.
• For island installations, the hood width
should, at a minimum, overhang the
range cooking surface by 6" on both
sides.
RANGE WIDTH
Notes:
2. Hood Placement:
edge of the hood should be installed a
minimum of 30" to a maximum of 36"
above the range cooking surface. (See
Fig. 1).
• If the hood contains any combustible
materials (i.e. a wood covering), it must
be a minimum of 42" above the cooking
surface.
3. Consider Make-Up Air:
• Due to the high volume of ventilation
air, a source of outside replacement air
is recommended. This is particularly
important for tightly sealed and
insulated homes.
• A qualified heating and ventilating
contractor should be consulted.
• For best smoke elimination, the lower

STEP 2: CABINET PREPARATION
The maximum depth of over
head cabinets installed on
either side of the hood is 13".
5.
Any openings in the wall behind
the range and in the floor under
the range must be sealed.
6.
The PRSE304 and PRSE48
Ranges must be placed with
the oven door projecting out
from the cabinet face. The
cabinet face should line up
with the oven front frame,
which is the surface that the
oven door closes against. (See
Fig. 2a, 2b and 2c illustrating side views of ranges.)
The gas and electrical supply
should be within the zones
shown in Fig. 3a, 3b and 3c.
When there is less than a 12"
horizontal clearance between
combustible material ∆ and the
back edge of the range above
the cooking surface, a
Thermador Low Back or High
Shelf backguard must be
installed. (See Fig. 2a). When
clearance to combustible
material ∆ is over 12", a
Thermador Island Trim may be
used. (See Fig. 2b). Except in
the case of 30" Ranges,
backguards must be ordered
separately. Figures 2a, 2b and
2c indicate the space required
for each type of backguard.
7.
Always keep appliance area
clear and free from combustible
materials, gasoline and other
flammable vapors and liquids.
8.
Do not obstruct the flow of
combustion and ventilation air
to the unit.
CAUTION:
Do not install the Model
PRES304 and PRSE48
ranges such that the oven
door is flush with the
cabinet face. A flush installation could result in
damage to the cabinets due
to exposure to high heat.

STEP 2: CABINET PREPARATION
ELECTRICAL SUPPLY, DUAL FUEL RANGES
Installation of Dual Fuel ranges
must be planned so that the
rough-in of the junction box for
the receptacle or conduit connection will allow maximum
clearance to the rear of the unit.
When the power supply cord or
conduit is connected to the
mating receptacle or junction
box cover, the combined plug/
receptacle or junction box
cover/conduit connector should
protrude no more than 2-1/4
inches from the rear wall. See
Figure 3d.
This is especially critical if the
junction box in the wall will be
directly behind the junction box
on the unit when the unit is
installed. Refer to Figures 16
and 16a for location of junction
box on unit. Orient the receptacle or conduit connector to
minimize binding when the unit
is connected to the receptacle or
junction box and slid back in
position.

STEP 3: UNPACKING, MOVING AND PLACING THE RANGE
CAUTION:
Proper equipment and
adequate manpower must
be used in moving the range
to avoid damage to the unit
or the floor. The unit is
heavy and rests on adjustable steel legs.
• The range has an approximate
shipping weight as shown in
Chart A. It is recommended that
the door(s), grates, burner caps,
front kick panel and oven racks be
removed to facilitate handling.
This will reduce the weight as
shown in Chart A and allow the
range to pass through 30" doorways. See Chart B and Fig. 2a and
2b. Do not remove the grill or
griddle assemblies.
• Remove the outer carton and
packing material from the shipping base. Remove the front kick
panel (see Fig. 4) by removing two
screws at the top and pulling
forward. The dual-fuel ranges are
held to the skid by four bolts, the
front two are behind the kick
panel (see Fig. 4) and the rear two
are located on the bottom flange
of the range back (see Fig. 5a).
The all gas ranges are held in
place by 3 bolts, two as shown in
Fig. 4 and one at the rear as
shown in Fig. 5b. After removing
the bolts the range must be lifted
and removed from the skid.

STEP 3: UNPACKING, MOVING AND PLACING THE RANGE
• Due to the weight, a dolly with
soft wheels should be used to
move this unit. The weight must
be supported uniformly across
the bottom (See Fig. 7).
• After transporting the professional range by dolly close to its
final location, the range can be
tipped back and supported on the
rear legs while the dolly is carefully removed. THE FLOOR
UNDER THE LEGS SHOULD BE
PROTECTED (WOOD STRIPS,
CARPET, PANELING, ETC.)
BEFORE PUSHING THE UNIT
INTO POSITION. The anti-tip
device (30" and 36" ranges) must
be installed (STEP 4), gas and
electric connections should be
made (STEPS 5 and 6), and the
backguard installed (STEP 7)
before the range is placed in its
final position.
• For proper performance the
professional range must be level.
The range is leveled by adjusting
the legs with a wrench. Replace
the kick panel and oven doors by
reversing the procedure described
above. It is important that the
two screws retaining the kick
panel are secure to prevent
accidental access to live
electrical components and
wires.

WARNING
RANGE TIPPING HAZARD
•
•
•
All ranges can tip and injury could result.
To prevent accidental tipping of the
range, attach it to the wall, floor or cabinet by installing the Anti-Tip Device supplied.
A risk of tip-over may exist if the appliance is not installed in accordance with
these instructions.
If the range is pulled away from the wall
for cleaning, service, or any other reason,
ensure that the Anti-Tip Device is properly
re-engaged when the range is pushed back
against the wall. In the event of abnormal
usage (such as a person standing, sitting,
or leaning on an open door), failure to
take this precaution could result in tipping of the range. Personal injury might
result from spilled hot liquids or from the
range itself.

a neutral supply wire must be
provided from the power source
(breaker/fuse panel) because
critical range components,
including the surface burner
spark re-ignition module, require
120 VAC to operate safely and
properly. An improper 120/240
VAC power supply will cause
malfunction, damage this appliance, and possibly create a
condition of shock hazard. If the
correct power supply circuit is not
provided, it is the responsibility
and obligation of the installer or
user to have the proper power
supply installed and connected.
This must be accomplished in
accordance with all applicable
local codes and ordinances by a
qualified electrician. In the
absence of local codes and
ordinances, the power supply
connection shall be in accordance with the National

all electrical connections meet the
requirements of all applicable codes.
DO NOT GROUND TO A GAS SUPPLY PIPE.
Improper grounding will cause malfunction (such
as continuous sparking of the burner igniters),
may damage this appliance, and could create a
condition of shock hazard at the igniter of each
burner. It is the responsibility and obligation of
the installer or user to ensure that the appliance
is properly grounded.
If range is hard-wired to power supply,
follow the instructions for permanaent
connection on pages 17 and 18. The
ground wire must be brought out to the
STEP 7: BACKGUARD INSTALLATION
The backguard must be attached
before sliding the range into the
final installed position. A Low
Back or High Shelf backguard
must be installed when there is
less than a 12" clearance between combustibles and the back
of the range above
the cooking surface. (See Fig. 2a
and 2b).
FIG. 22
Front of Unit
An Island Trim is available for
covering the backguard mounting flanges for island installations, where there is a minimum
of 12" of horizontal clearance
between combustibles and the
back of the range. (See Fig. 2c).
The backguard is inserted, as
shown in Fig. 22, into the guide
channels on the back of the
range. Secure the backguard
with the (4) sheet metal screws
provided.
For installation of backguards
on PRSE304 and PRSE36 units,
refer to the following instructions on

STEP 7: BACKGUARD INSTALLATION
INSULATION AND RETAINER REMOVAL
FIG. 22a
(MODELS PRSE304, PRSE36GD, PRSE364GL, PRSE366)
Before the backguard can be assembled onto Model
PRSE304 and PRSE36 Ranges, the insulation
retainer and the insulation must be removed to
avoid interference. This insulation is not required
on the PRSE304 and PRSE36 models
The High Shelf Back Trim is shown. The procedure
is the same for Island Trim or Low Back Trim.
Screws
Step 1
Remove the four screws holding the insulation
retainer. See Fig. 22a.

STEP 8: TEST AND ADJUSTMENT
CAUTION
Thermador recommends that
burner adjustments be made by
a qualified technician at the
time of installation. Extreme
care should be used when
adjustments are made after
installation. Improper or lack of
adjustments may void your
warranty.
Install any loose components, such as burner caps and grates, that may
have been removed earlier. Be certain that burner caps seat properly into
the alignment slots in the burner bases. Before testing operation of the
appliance, verify that the unit and the gas supply have been carefully
checked for leaks and that the unit has been connected to the electric
power supply. Turn the manual gas shut-off valve to the open position.
Check operation of the sealed gas burners and grill by pushing and
turning each knob counterclockwise to “HI”. The burner igniters will click
until the flame ignites. The two far left sealed burners feature XLO®,
causing the flame to cycle on and off when the knob is set to the XLO®
range. This is normal operation.
Burner flames should be blue and stable with no yellow tips, excessive
noise, or lifting of the flame from the burner. If any of these conditions
exist, check that the air shutter (grill, griddle and gas oven only) or burner
ports are not blocked or clogged. Remove any blockages that exist.
If the flame is too yellow, indicating insufficient air, adjust the shutter
counterclockwise to increase air inlet (grill, griddle and gas oven only).
The sealed top burner flames should be approximately 1" to 1-1/4" high. The
griddle, grill, gas oven and infrared broiler burner flames should be as shown
in Fig. 23).
NOTE: No air shutter or low flame adjustment is necessary or possible with
the sealed top burners.

TO CLEAN AND PROTECT
EXTERIOR SURFACES
The stainless steel surfaces may be cleaned by wiping
with a damp soapy cloth. Any mild glass cleaner will
remove fingerprints and smears.
DO NOT allow deposits to remain for long periods of
time.
Follow all cleaning by rinsing with clear water. Wipe
dry with a clean soft cloth to avoid water marks. For
discolorations or deposits that persist, use a nonscratching household cleanser or stainless steel
polishing powder with a little water and a soft cloth.
For stubborn cases, use a plastic scouring pad or soft
bristle brush together with cleanser and water. Rub
lightly in direction of polishing lines or “grain” of the
stainless finish. Avoid using too much pressure which
may mar the surface.
DO NOT use ordinary steel wool or steel brushes. Small
bits of steel may adhere to the surface causing rust.
DO NOT allow salt solutions, disinfectants, bleaches or
cleaning compounds to remain in contact with stainless steel for extended periods. Many of these compounds contain chemicals which could prove harmful.
Rinse with water after exposure and wipe dry with a
clean cloth.
