    One burner on my Viking 4 burner range continues clicking after the burner is lit. The only way to stop the clicking is to turn the burner off. I replaced the sparking module and now all four burners click. I tried cleaning the spark electrodes but that did not work. Help

    Clicking will not stop on Viking range

    Our viking oven has the same clicking problem, however not all the time. so it can't be a short. Can it be cleaned? or does it have to be replaced? If it has to be replaced, how do you do that?

    I've got the same problem (on a viking stovetop). However, it seems to me that this is related to the 'auto relight' feature: If I turn the gas off, I get continuous sparks on all burners; turn it on, the front two stop sparking when lit. 


    My problem is that I cannot tell how the 'auto-relight' circuit detects a lit burner - there are no temperature detectors that I can see. Does anybody know how this works? My only guess (a wild one) it that it is based on a electrical measurement which is changed by combustion products and that the shut-off circuit is not working on my two back-burners.  That said, it's odd that the same problem occurs on both sides, with, apparently, separate spark circuits.

    My new Viking range ignitors keep clicking when burners are turned to low or simmer. Is this typical?

    If this is the case, I am returning this range to dealer.

Juliac, the burner valve switch for that burner is either shorted or grounding out. Each burner control has a valve switch that controls the power to the igniter. Sometimes they just get full of gunk and short. Part number is PA020015. Catriver...post back.

SOURCE: Viking Range

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.

Viking range burners won't light


from I review I found it might be this...Simple replacement of Glow Bar igniter requires removal of entire front panel with many screws
so sounds like your igniter might be shot - it heats up to ignite the burners - easy fix - get a long torch lighter and just light the gas after turning it on -

Viking with CRAZY Ignitor


Hi there, I am attaching your manual in case it helps you.

On page 53, in the troubleshooting chart, the ninth item down seems to suggest similar 'problems' - including possible 'cause / remedy' to the right in same chart.

The manual includes the manufacturers contact info on page 1 of this pdf (the back page of the manual itself.).

Or, the manual LINK is here:

Ignitor won't shut off


The Viking manual says that an ignitor that continues to try to light even after the burner has been lit indicates improper grounding, and that an electrician should be consulted.

Perhaps you could try to replace the ignitor, and see if that fixes the problem?

I have a similar age, 6-burner 36" rangetop.
