Question about Viking 42 in. Professional Series VGRT421-4G Gas Cooktop
The one burner in particular (left front) continues to spark and thus all burners continue to spark. It ignites and gas is flowing but it never stops sparking. Very annoying....I am thus down to using 3 burners. The others seem to work o.k., but are slow to ignite....sometimes I have to turn the knob on and off 2-3 times to get it to work? Any suggestions....the burners are all clean and it is not that old.....kept as new!
Is this a sealed burner unit? if so the burner base (the heavy brass part under the burner cap) has to be sitting just right. you will notice that it has holes around the the sides make sure that where your ignitor sparks to it that it aligns with the lowest hole on the burner base. if you have a great flame all around the burner after checking what i mentioned i would replace the spark module. if it continues to drive you crazy with the noise - just unplug it. the burners will continue working fine without power.
