Question about Viking VGSC366-6B Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Oven barly heats up. It struggles to cook a pie.

When I turn on the oven, the burners are not going on at full heat. The left one will start up strong but simmer down to a warm little glow in about 20 seconds. Then the right some times will kick up to a med force but the left will go out completely. They are never on together in a cold start or half warm. I have replaced the dual thermal gas ct-rl valve but the problem is still there. The oven takes hours to heat and can not hold a 350 temp. Is there any other controller I can get to fix this poor oven?

LEFT REAR BURNER GETS HOT WHEN OVEN IS ON


Look at this as an asset. The oven vents to that location. (gotta vent somewhere). You can use the heat to melt butter, keep something already cooked warm like the potatoes, dry pans after you've washed them... I like this feature!

How to change the lower element on a delonghi AD 699 toaster oven?


Hello,

  • Preheat ovens only when necessary. With conventional ovens, keep the preheating time to a minimum. Unless you're baking breads or pastries, you may not need to preheat the oven at all.
  • Food cooks more quickly and efficiently in ovens when air can circulate freely. Don't lay foils on racks. If possible, stagger pans on upper and lower racks to improve air flow.
  • Use glass or ceramic pans in ovens. You can turn down the temperature about 25°F and cook foods just as quickly.
  • Do not open the oven door often to preview the food. Each time you open the door the oven temperature drops by 25°F. Watch the clock or use a timer instead.
  • Full-size ovens are not very efficient for cooking small- to medium-sized meals, it generally pays to use toaster ovens or microwave ovens.
  • Check to be sure the oven door gasket is tight. Adjust or replace gaskets as required.
  • If you have a self-cleaning oven, consider using the self-cleaning feature immediately after regular baking when the oven is still hot. Less energy will be required to reach the cleaning temperature. Try not to use the self-cleaning feature too often.
  • Keep range-top burners and reflectors clean; they will reflect the heat better and save energy.
  • Match the size of the pan to the heating element; more heat will get to the pan and less will be lost to the surrounding air. A 6-inch pan on a 8-inch burner will waste over 40% of the energy.
  • On electric stove-tops, use only flat-bottomed pans that make full contact with the element. A warped or rounded pan will waste most of the heat.
  • When cooking with a gas range-top burner, use moderate flame settings to conserve gas. Also make sure the pilot light is burning efficiently, with a blue flame. A yellowish flame indicates an adjustment is needed because the gas is burning inefficiently.
  • Whenever possible, use a pressure cooker. By cooking food at a higher temperature and pressure, cooking time is reduced dramatically and energy use is cut by 50-75%.

  • Hope this work ..........

    Oven not cooking at correct temperature & loses heat


    Had a similar issue - but my unit is eight years old. Turns out my issues were my oven ignitors were failing and one of the burners had corroded causing the flame to only light on one side. To fix I replaced two ignitors (apparently they are to be replaced every 3-5 years) and cleaned the burner with a brass wire brush. If you are handy the ignitors are easy to replace - one screw and two wires each. Burner was one screw to remove.

    Ceramic ignitors if wearing out can cause delayed lighting of the oven burners and/or reduce the gas flow - hence not heating up.

    That was my experience ....

    hi my name is mark, a service tech needs to check the voltage to the cook top. you will probably find improper voltage. check data plate for proper voltage should be 208v or 230v depending onwhere you live.

    Oven Burners not lighting completely


    It's the igniters. They increase in resistance as the elements age and decreases the current required to heat the spring element in the gas valve.

    Replace both igniters.

    Remove the bottom of the oven you will see 2 screws in the back. once you do that there is a flame baffel on top of the burner held on my one screw. remove that. now turn the oven on and watch to see if the glow bar comes on. I would say it wont or if it dose it is to weak to open the gas valve. Replace the glow bar and you will be back in business. the glow bar is a ware item everytime theoven is on and is heating the glow bar is on . good luck
