If you have replaced the spark module with the new, blue PA020041 Tytronics 0+4 spark module, the physical positions of the leads that go to the burner igniters are reversed compared to the positions on the old, white module. Make sure that the switch wire for the burner and the position of the spark wire both go to the same burner! The positions are marked on the white label with green lettering.

You need a new wire harness that has the ignitor switches on it. I believe viking calls it the ignition switch.

Burner will not ignite but electroic spark s are working, sparks will not stop after burner is manualy lit


I have had this same issue with continuous sparking after a burner was lit.
Problem 1. Wet or dirty ignitors/burners. Solution: clean and/or dry (I assume this resolves electrical issues). This has usually solved the problem
Problem 2. Stuck or dirty control switch. Solution: remove knobs and spray electrical-cleaner into switches. AMAZING... no more clicking plus burners now burn hotter when set to HI. I assume this frees-up the movement of the switch to prevent it thinking you are pushing it ON... and thus asking for spark... plus greater range of switch and/or higher flame settings available once lit. A no-cost miracle! ( I used "PureTronics" brand Electrical Contact Cleaner spray can, 1 sec, 2X).

Viking 30" gas professional series cooktop sparking problem


And before that Most likely one of the ignition switches (they are under knobs) got shorted possibly due to spilled liquid or a cleaning stuff sprayed on. In that case it should stop sparking after a switch drys. Still no go replace the spark control unit.

Thanks

Viking Gas Cooktop - Ignition sparks continuously when in 'on' position


This is likely caused by either a dirty ignition electrode, a cracked ignition electrode, or a bad spark re-ignition module.

Clean and inspect the six electrodes for cracks, If that doesn't solve it order a new
Ignition module from an internet appliance dealer that carries Viking parts like Appliance Zone.

If you replace the Ignition module yourself, make sure to turn off the circuit breaker to the range/cooktop before you work on it. Also, make a drawing of where the different color leads are plugged into the ignition module before you unplug the wires and plug them into the new re-ignitor. If the unit is under one year, this should be covered under the warranty.
Viking had a recall a few years back on their ignitor modules.

Rv cooktop range 22 series


hi,

it sounds like the oven safety valve is bad, it will reach a point when the pilot will make enough energy to keep itself lit, but not enough to open the gas valve to light. it will need to be replaced. if you are handy you can do this, but make sure you shut off the gas to the range first. you should be able to find a replacement online, if not check with a local LP gas company that sells parts to the public.

Ignite problem


imfornu, under each burner control is a valve and a switch that controls the spark to each burner. Sometimes these switches become wet or short out. In this case it sounds like yours is shorted in the closed position and therefore the spark. These switches run on a harness across each burner control valve..I believe the part number is PG220020, you can look it up on the net to get an idea of what it looks like...Catriver..post back.
