Question about Viking 31 in. Pro Series VECU106-4BS (Electric) Cooktop

I have a viking professional 30in cooktop that needs HELP!!

I have a 30" electric viking professional series cooktop, that literally takes about 10-12 minutes just to heat up the pan (not even enough for eggs, that can take up to 20 minutes, it seems) and i do not believe it even gets hot enough to boil water. why any help? i have had it in storage now for a year or more and warranty is void already.

    everything gets hot. meaning every burner gets warm, i can cook on it, but it takes about 15-20 minutes for boiling water. like i said every burner turns on, the unit appears to be in mint condition, and i read another person had this same problem. is there a solution?

Only 1 of 5 burners is working on my Viking electric cooktop

By only 1 burner working, I take you mean only 1 ignites, then it sounds as though you have an issue with the spark module being defective. There is usually an access panel on the bottom of the unit, although not on all of them. Remember to disconnect from the electric.
