Thermador PRSE 484GGS Thermostat Replacement

12 July 2013 - 01:27 AM

So the thermostat I need for the smaller oven of my 48" Thermador PRSE484GGS is:

Bosch 486945.

Okay, this is no longer available (except for the guy on eBay selling one for $550). So the replacement model is (based on all the info I find online):

Bosch 487537.

Okay, and now this one is also not available. However, when I called my local appliance parts company (Mack Stove), they told me the part that was suggested for my stove, and the part they could get is:

Bosch 487538.

Question: Does anyone have experience with this Thermador model, and specifically this thermostat (for the smaller oven)? Do you think the 538 will work in place of the 537? I've seen the 538 photo. It does look similar (not exact) and I think it would fit. Are there other issues to consider? 

The parts place quoted me $234.50, but I know I can get it cheaper elsewhere...about $150. Do you guys think I should give it a shot? 

Thanks in advance!
