Simmer plate rusted over

Hi! Just purchased a house with a viking gas range (6 burner with simmer plate) 48 '' width. The simmer plate/griddle is rusted over......is there a special way that is preferred for cleaning this? (My gut response is elbow grease, steel wool and then re season the plate.) Thanks Lyla

Try using a white vinegar/water solution to wipe it off, then wash the vinegar solution off and seal with oil.

You may have to do it a few times to get the worst of the rust off.

If you get to the point of using it, to prevent it happening again,after use you need to clean it off any always finish by wipingit down with an oil soaked paper towel to seal it.

It will get discolored with use, so if you don't have one already
I would advise buying a cover, Viking make a stainless or a chopping block cover.

Is there a cleaning manual for my 6 burner/griddle viking range?


I have a product that I use to clean my burners and griddle with, it is made by ECOLAB and is called Greasecutter Plus. It doesn't hurt the range but it makes it look brand new, even my griddle comes completely clean. You just spray it on then let it sit for a bit then it wipes clean.

Where can I locate the model number on my viking range? (48")


Mine was located to the left of the top burners. Remove the grates covering the burners, remove the 'spill' pans, lift up the surface that held the spill pans and then on the LHS you should see a plate with your units details.

Need to replace griddle thermostat


My husband and I just had to check out our griddle on our 48 inch Viking rangetop. You remove the grates and the grate holders on either side of the griddle..it just pops out. Then you raise your griddle up about 4" to remove your thermastats., noting the position they are in so when you replace you can put back correctly. After pulling the thermastats out, then you lift the griddle out. Griddle is extremely heavy so be prepared to have close surface to lay it. Hope this helps.

Viking range top 2 burners won't light


Either the igniters are at fault (which is usually the case when one or two are not working) or the entire oven ignition system needs to be replaced and can be done through Viking themselves whether you want them to replace it or you yourself replace it, you can get the part through them.
