SOURCE: Viking range self cleaning not working - door locked

This is a more common problem than revealed by Viking.
Heres how I an "amature" fixed it.
Top center of many viking ovens have slots. With a small flashlight look into the center slots. "Its HARD to see" Look for something
shiney thats the latch/hook everything else will be dark.
I used a shish ka bab skwer. You need something like that or maybe an ice pick. Knives screwdrivers and things like that will
damage the face of the oven and then after opeining it you will forever feel bad about marring that very expensive unit.
Take the pick and with the flashlight guide it to the shiney part.
Once touching push to the LEFT. Keep trying as the pick will slip
many times. The latch should have no resistance if you can get on it.
Once open you can try and reset the hook to its open position.
Mine would not reset and prevented the door from closing.
This is now another fix. To keep the hook held to the open position. E mail me for how I jury rigged this part.
Mexvillas@aol.com
I have the hook held open now and will never be able to use the self clean function again. But thats better for me than a open wallet fix for the repair man and then wonder when it will happen again. To repeat. This is a known problem with Viking ovens.

Cheers

SOURCE: Dacor oven light bulb

Yeah, it's a rip-off isn't it? Been there. :-( Find the bulb part number or electrical values and search eBay. I think this is what you're looking for:

G4 halogen 12v 10w, dacor part 86364.

A search right now shows multiple vendors offering 10-piece packs for $7.00 including shipping. I'm about to order a set myself.

I have a Viking 6440 (36 years old), and the original light bulb has burned out. I can't get the bulb out! Any suggestions?


Hi anon3...
Spray a little wd-40 on the socket and tap the outside of the socket...wait about a half an hour and try to unscrew it...if that does not work keep screwing the bulb out until you twist the bulb out of the socket...then take a pair of need nose pliers and grab the edge of the bulb and twist it toward the center do the a few times around the outside of the bulb
Please take time to rate me thumbs up

How do I clean a self cleaning oven that has never been through a self cleaning cycle and I have been trying to clean it as a normal non self cleaning oven?


Self cleaning ovens work by getting very hot and burning off spills from their inner coating. They are designed to be very resistant and should go through a cycle happily despite the cleaning products. If you've used anything harsh you wont want to be around (or your pets) while the fumes burn off- that'll take a cycle.

I use a product called Greasecutter Plus by ECOLAB, it makes the griddle look brand new, gets everything off. You just spray it on and let it set for a little bit then it wipes clean.

Iam using the self clean on the oven . Is there anything I need to know? Itook the racks out before starting the self clean.


Yes never use the self clean right before a holiday like thanksgiving.
99.9% of the time everything will be fine. The other time when you're going to need the oven the HSI will go bad a the oven will not relight. This happened to me. I love self clean. Do this on a cool day it will heat up the kitchen and kinda smell a little. Make sure all racks and cookie sheets are out, lock the door and hit the button.

I changed a light bulb on my Viking hood, now I can't dim the lights anymore...they just stay on bright. what can i do to get dimming feature back?


If you put a CFL in it, they are not dimmable. If it is a standard light bulb, it should not affect the dimmer.

Viking Dual Fuel 6 Burner 48" OVEN DOES NOT HEAT


I hate self clean functions - If you think about it - you should too. These ranges are equipped with electronic components and running self clean at 950 degrees will more than likely burn something out. A lot of complaints are because of the self clean. It's not worth it to self clean than to clean it yourself. And 200 dollars is a great price for something like this if it includes parts and labor. Good luck.
