Oven will not maintain temprature

My 30" viking professional is new out of the box. The range burners work fine, but the oven is unable to maintain temp. It reaches the desired temp, then cools down immediatly afterwards.

This is a parts problem, I think called the burner ignitor. It is a pn oven part. We have had it in the past and are experiencing it again. We have had our stove for about 15 years, so I guess it is not too bad a problem, but not inexpensive. The oven is letting the gas be off too long between reignitions, so it does not maintain temperature. The first time we realized the probelem was with the Thanksgiving turkey (pink in the joints.)

We had to have the part replaced about 7 years ago and the part was about a $200 part plus service call. I am sure it more costly now. Hopefully you can get yours under warranty.

Viking oven knob was hit off. Now I cannot put it back on


Need to check that the connection rod is white plastic, if it's black its a piece broken from original knob. Replacement knobs from Viking are $25-34. I used a Brainerd #64686 from Lowes (under $3) that works and looks just fine

One thing that you can check is make sure that you have 220 volts at the plug. Leave the unit unplugged and check continuity on the burners. You should have continuity on the burners.

One of the oven ignitors does not work


Most likely replacing the ignitor will fix it. I usually replace Viking ignitors with Maytag ones, part number 12400035 (you'll need splice wires and use included wire nuts to connect those, though). Those have a little shorter base, which does not affect anything. Replace both bake ignitors if you can, otherwise, one of the burners will ignite slower and shut off faster, resulting in uneven bake.

Have a Viking range, gas top, electric oven, neither work.


Check connector block where electric is brought into stove for loose or burnt wires. Check Breaker in house power box. Push the breaker firmly to off and then return to On position. Read owner's manual to see if ignitor circuit has a fuse and check said fuse.

Viking 30" Range - Igniter works - but NO FLAME in oven or ranges


No pilot light need to be ignited. You may need a new ignitor. It might not be catching. If you pull the bottom oven plate off you can see the ignitor on the side of the burner and see if it is in its place or broken or just plain old. It is a simple fix. You can buy a universal ignitor or contact Viking and they will sell it to you. Its only two wires and can do it yourself if you are somewhat technical. Good luck.
