Question about Viking VGSC306-4B Gas Kitchen Range
All burners ignite properly but no oven or broiler
It's most likely the igniters in the oven. They cost about 40$ apiece and our oven has two. They are fairly easy to replace.
1) Turn off the electricity to the stove, either with a switch or your circuit breaker.
2) Remove grills, side support grills and oven base. They all just slide out.
3) Remove door to avoid breaking it. It slides off.
4) Remove old igniters, they are attached with two screws. Remove 2 wires from plugs. It might be necessary to lower the front base panel to get to the plugs - the panel is attached by two screws on the side of the panel.
5) Install new igniters, put the door and grills on and you're good to go.
The first time, it might take an hour to get used to your stove, but its really about 15 minutes of work.

SOURCE: Replacing Oven Igniter
PULL OUT THE DRAWER AND THAT WILL ALLOW YOU ACCESS TO THE 1/4" SCREWS IN THE LOWER REAR THAT HOLDS THE BURNER IN PLACE ALONG WITH THE FRONT SINGLE 1/4" SCREW. NEED A FLASHLIGHT FOR THIS. THIS FREES UP THE BURNER SO YOU CAN ACCESS THE IGNITER MOUNT SCREWS.

tommi, this model has a cooktop lock-out solenoid feature. Try pressing and holding the top light keypad for 5 seconds and see if the top comes back to life. If not, check your owners manual, it may be a different key. The lock-out solenoid is in the back behind the outer panel. The cooktop lockout valve has been redesigned from a AC to DC voltage because of complaints of chattering. The new part number is 8184768. Lets hope you don't need it and just have the top locked out.

SOURCE: Oven burner doesn't light
If memory serves me,there are a couple of screws on oven floor.Remove panel.Sounds like ignitor is the culprit.It feeds back to control.It may glow and light but unless it is sending full signal,gas valve will not open fully and oven will take forever to heat.

The most common cause of this symptom is a defective ignitor. Oven
ignitors can glow and allow enough current through to open the oven gas
valve but just not produce enough heat to ignite the gas immediately
(see the link below).
In that case, replacing the oven ignitor is the usual solution.

it seems the burner in the oven is clogged, by grease, carbon or corrosion, it may need replacing, specialy if this is an older unit

SOURCE: oven won`t come on
If the bake manifold is the only feature that does not work, your problem may be as simple as replacing the igniter. The following link explains:
Both manifolds in the oven are fed from the same gas source and regulator, and they each have their own igniter. If the broiler is working, its not a gas issue. The only other problem that can cause one manifold to fail and the other to light is a bad relay on the Electronic Oven Control (EOC) board. This is the clock assembly on the operator console. The igniter is a cheaper option and the more common fail item. I would recommend checking the igniter first.
Replacement igniters (if needed) can be purchased at any of the following websites:
Prices vary between sites, so shop all of them for the best deal.
NOTE: If the connector plug on the replacement igniter you receive does not match the existing igniter, you should be instructed to cut the wires and splice them using ceramic wire lugs that should be included with the kit. Do not use standard wire lugs as they will melt. The ceramic lugs and the wiring to the igniter are heat resistant.
If you have any questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
