After frantically calling Viking hdqtrs and several repair shops for their advice and experience, it turned out that after my husband fiddled further with it, something got unstuck and it miraculously opened all the way again. Don't think we'll ever know what caused it in the first place , but it works now.

Oven lite won't go off and when turn on self cleaning it says door


The door switch has gone bad. This will keep the oven light on and the self clean won't work because it thinks the door is open.

Viking range self cleaning not working - door locked


This is a more common problem than revealed by Viking.
Heres how I an "amature" fixed it.
Top center of many viking ovens have slots. With a small flashlight look into the center slots. "Its HARD to see" Look for something
shiney thats the latch/hook everything else will be dark.
I used a shish ka bab skwer. You need something like that or maybe an ice pick. Knives screwdrivers and things like that will
damage the face of the oven and then after opeining it you will forever feel bad about marring that very expensive unit.
Take the pick and with the flashlight guide it to the shiney part.
Once touching push to the LEFT. Keep trying as the pick will slip
many times. The latch should have no resistance if you can get on it.
Once open you can try and reset the hook to its open position.
Mine would not reset and prevented the door from closing.
This is now another fix. To keep the hook held to the open position. E mail me for how I jury rigged this part.
Mexvillas@aol.com
I have the hook held open now and will never be able to use the self clean function again. But thats better for me than a open wallet fix for the repair man and then wonder when it will happen again. To repeat. This is a known problem with Viking ovens.

Cheers

Self cleaning oven


It may have sliders inside the oven door .Open the door and look at each side for metal slide plates that when pulled upward they seal off the glass for self cleaning. If you dont have those ,I just wasted alot of typing.
