Question about Viking VGSC366-6B Gas Kitchen Range

I have a 30" Viking range with a top burner that continues to click and spark after ignition. I understand that this is a sensor issue...........Is this something that the lay person can resolve on their own ? Thanks, Robert

If you only have one burner that clicks when in use then what you have to do is clean the sensor ( the proper name is electrode ) at the top where the little medal disk is with something abrasive. Over time the electrode gets a film on it and prevents it from sending a signal back to the spark module to tell it a flame is present. If it continues to click then replace the electrode. Hope this helps

Viking 6 burner, gas stove top. When the back leftburner is turned on, it continually clicks. How can we fix this?


Hello,

The electrode (spark plug) for that burner is not telling the spark module the burner is lit and go ahead and turn off the spark. That electrode and the wiring on it need to be replaced,from that burner back to the spark module.

I have just replaced all the ignitors and the spark control module on the cook top burners. Prior to this the back burners would cause ignition spark continually when lit. the front 2 burners could be...


first check to make sure all the burner tops are setting correctly on the burner base, if not it will make the flame uneven. the way the igniter works is once they feel the flames on them they will stop sparking. make sure the flames are not too low and they are touching the igniter. check them one at a time. if you have any questions message me back thanks

Igniter keeps clicking, intermittent


There should be a little switch that slips over the stem of each burner control. Very common.

Burner ignitor will not turn off after the burner lights Viking


replace the electrode that's the wire or pilot tip, it has a sensor built in, when it gets hot it stops automatically. if the electrode is between the front and rear burners, there are small holes on the burners going down on the side of the burner facing the ignition. they need to be clean. try a paper clip and insert the clip in side the holes.

The clicking is the electrode arcing. when the burner lights, a sensor tells the electrode to stop sparking after is heats up a little, that's why is clicks a little after the burner lights, but then stops. If the spark keeps going, the sensor is not registering the flame. The ones that do not click could be the ignite coil, the wire, or the electrode.
