Question about Kitchen Ranges
When you turn gas on, ignitor works intermittantly. sometimes its normal and it lights, sometimes its a fainter click and does not light. maybe something is dirty? maybe the ignitor needs to be replaced? Does the 6 burner model viking have a central igniter that feeds the others at the burner. it seem if it works it will light for any of the 6 and when it doesn't it wont work for any of them. Also, i've noticed there is some failsafe that once lit, the clicking will stop automatically. As though it has a sensor. maybe the sensor is dirty? I have a viking six burner range, the ignitor doesn't work at all on all burners and the oven, is this a easy fix or do I need a Viking service repair person.

The clicking is the electrode arcing. when the burner lights, a sensor tells the electrode to stop sparking after is heats up a little, that's why is clicks a little after the burner lights, but then stops. If the spark keeps going, the sensor is not registering the flame. The ones that do not click could be the ignite coil, the wire, or the electrode.

First shut off the gas supply & disconnect electrical power to the range.

replace the electrode that's the wire or pilot tip, it has a sensor built in, when it gets hot it stops automatically. if the electrode is between the front and rear burners, there are small holes on the burners going down on the side of the burner facing the ignition. they need to be clean. try a paper clip and insert the clip in side the holes.

All of these ranges have a spark module at each burner sight and they all click when ever you attempt to light one burner. Therefore, it can not be assummed that the spark module for those nonworking burners are actually clicking. Remove the burner covers and actually look for the sparks. If there is no spark make sure the connections are nice and tight. IF they are, you most likely need to replace the spark module.
