Viking oven gets warm but not real hot. The coil does not get red and appears to be not working


Typically the problem is with the oven controller. IF your RTD (resistive temperature device) is ok then your oven controller board is faulty. When the oven is turned on (bake mode) the oven controller closes the relay that controls the bottom element and the oven begins to heat. The RTD or thermostat provides a feedback loop to the oven controller. RTDs don't partially fail, they either work or they don't. Since your oven is getting warm I would imagine the RTD is okay. You can verify the RTD by measuring its resistance at room temperature. Remove power from the oven and either remove the RTD completely and measure with an OHM meter or remove leads and measure while still attached to the oven chassis. You may have to remove it if your ohm meter leads won't reach. I don't know your model oven but most RTDs at room temp are about 1.1 kohms or 1100 ohms. If this is the case your RTD is fine and your controller board is bad. Please let me know if you need anything else. Good luck!

Oven needs to be calibrated....it heats approximately 100 degrees below where it should


Not familiar with the brand of course but if your model has an Eaton oven control like this one for Viking Page 23 their is an adjustment screw for calibrating the oven temps. Other controls use an adjustment inside the shaft of the oven control itself.

Viking model vdsc4874gss small oven works fine large oven element on bottom only gets hot in cleaniong mode, fan comes on when dial is turned to convection but no heat power is on light works


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.

It takes too long for the oven to reach the desired temperature.


Here are two instances of when food "bakes poorly:"

  • When the item takes far too long to finish, you probably have a weak bake igniter. Often, you need to replace the igniter, but you may want to troubleshoot the oven's electrical system further to more precisely locate the defect.

  • When the temperature is consistent but too high or too low, the oven thermostat or sensor is either mis-calibrated or defective. If your oven uses an electronic temperature-regulating device, you may have an electric sensor in the oven instead of a mechanical thermostat. If the oven temperature is off by 30 to 40 degrees in this type of unit, you must replace the sensor.

    On many units with a mechanical thermostat, you can remove the thermostat knob and adjust the knob itself to more accurately represent the actual setting of the thermostat. If, when you remove the knob, there's a screw on the back of it with a small calibration plate, you can loosen the screw, adjust the plate, then tighten the screw again. If the knob isn't adjustable, and the oven temperature is off by more than 30 to 40 degrees, you need to replace the thermostat to solve the problem.

I cant get my viking 30inch electric range to self clean. it has a self clean spot on the knob and on the temperature knob but when both in place nothing happens.


You might need to lock the oven door to get the self clean to go on. My stove had a lever which locked the oven door when you pushed it sideways. It was in the middle above the oven door, in the gap... Hope this helps!

Calibration


Electric ovens are calibrated behind the temp knob. Pull the knob straight off of the shaft and look at the back of the knob. There should be a metal slide with a scale and a little set screw. Loosen the screw and move the slide in the direction indicated for your needs.

Oven temperature is +100F warmer than setpoint


Sounds like the wrong module got installed or is defective. Dangerous situation. Call or take it back to whoever installed it. If you did yourself, pull the control module and return it to the shop you bought it from for a new one or make sure you have the correct module by checking the part number on the module itself. Better yet call Viking directly. Here's customer support info: Customer Support If you own a Viking product and have questions or require assistance with product repairs if you wish to speak to a customer service representative please call us at 1-888-VIKING1 (1-888-845-4641), then press 1.
