Question about Viking VGIC3074 Gas Kitchen Range
I have the exact same range and the same problem. There was also a gas smell that burned my eyes
The whooshing sound is because there is too much pressure in the burner, forcing some of the gas to come out where the orifice goes into the burner. I know this because there was a carbon build up in that location.
It turns out that the oven burner was drilled and then formed into the "u" shape while very hot. That distorted the holes in the burner. I got a small drill the same size as one of the "good" round holes and re-drilled all the holes in the burner. The only thing to be aware of is the "cross over" holes that go from one side to the other are a little smaller then the main holes that go around the perimeter. Now there is no smell, no whooshing sound and it works beautifully. Needless to say, we were very disappointed having spent the extra money for a supposedly "quality" product only to have it perform badly with no service man with any knowledge of the problem. I went through the whole range just to check it out. I found 22 problems. Mostly small, but things that should not have been allowed to get through quality control. Seems there is very little of that in Vikings Mexico plant. One thing in particular that was a safety issue (other than the oven burner) was a plastic grommet meant to protect a wire going through some sheet metal. The grommet was too small and was just sitting around the wire instead of locking into the hole in the sheet metal. Thusly, the wire was aloud to "chafe" on the metal where it went through. I suggest you look very carefully at as much of the range as you can, just to be sure. Good Luck, Wade

Could be the burner is plugged up and the gas is not coming out all the way. Try cleaning out the whole with a paperclip.

It sounds as though air/gas mixture needs to be adjusted.
Close the port on the burner so it has about 1/4" open.
If this doesn't work then the orifice may be a size or 2 too big and needs to be reduced
