Question about Viking 37 in. DGCU165 Gas Cooktop

1 Answer

Viking range dgcu165 long wait for gas to flow after knob turn

This range after sitting for 20 mins or maybe 30, has no gas flow when you first turn any knob. The ignitors spark fine until ignition, it's just that the 1st time you turn the range on after sitting a while, no gas flows for 5-6 seconds. Then you hear the gas come on and then it lights. After that, it releases gas no problem immediately, until you leave it alone for 20-30 mins.

    Could you detail that procedure for me, in general, and a description of the assembly? Thank you!

  • newcrossroad Jan 19, 2009

    Oh wait, how does the ignitor assembly control the gas valve? I cannot hear gas flow until 5-6 seconds after the knob is turned, then it ignites. This does not occur on the second or multiple later tries unless the range is left to sit unused for 20-30 mins.

The ignitor assembly/s need to be cleaned.

    A dirty/clogged ignitor assembly will cause the initial low volume gas flow for ignition to fail to ignite. It then ignites when the gas builds up enough to get past the restriction to the ignitor.

Viking cooktop gas unit ignition clicks on all burners when I use


Electric gas igniters sometimes get stuck in one position causing a clicking sound. The clicking sound that you hear is the electric arc that is pulsing from the igniter conductor (wire) to ground (the gas burner). It receives power from the electrical outlet that the stove is plugged into.
Residue from food and sometimes cleaning products may be preventing the igniter from producing a spark (Arc) to the base of the burner. This is a common problem that occurs when the stove has been cleaned or food is allowed to build up. Make sure that the igniter and the burner base are clean and dry. This will help with proper operation. Oven cleaner and a small tooth brush may be used to accomplish this. Another problem with ignition may occur if you have too little (touching) or too much space between the igniter and the base of the burner; it will prevent the burner from igniting. You should only have a little more space than the thickness of a nickel between the burner base and the igniter. A good “blue” arc from the igniter to the burner base is optimal. If this doesn’t work, you may need to replace the electric igniter module. Good luck.

Viking Burners keep on clicking! Anoying!


The causes to the clicking is that the ignitors could be wet, dirty (with grease caked on them or cleaning products or a bad spark module). The ignitors are the little white things on the side of each burner with a metal piece on top. If they are wet (let them dry out for 20 - 30 min on a high flame, if dirty sand the metal piece on top with sand paper or nail file. And if it is the spark module and u are technical, order one from the parts department for Viking. You will need ur model and serial # then find out if it is located under the burners or the rear of the range. There are several wires going to the spark module. Best way is to disconnect one by one and connecting it to the new box until all wires are switched from old to new module. Remember to unplug the unit before doing this because you may get shocked. Also if it is a sealed burner system that means that the burner bowls cannot be lifted from the range and water cannot seap under the burners then you could just change all 4 or six burner bases. Viking has adapted them throughout the many complaints and they are better now. Typical cost is: $350 - $400 if spark module is under burners, in rear = $500 - $600. Burner bases = 400 - 600 depending on number of burners and if it is with a venturi or screws. Good luck.

VGSU 36" gas cook-top control panel paint coming off


I just bought a bank repo home in So. Cal. that has the same Viking range as you have. Yes, the black lettering has almost entirely rubbed off. on this one too. Not good for such an expensive product.

I bit the bullet and ordered a new panel from appliancezone.com

http://store.appliancezone.com

Part # PE40057

The price is about $75, $80 with shipping, which is a ripoff I know.

I plan to put a clear coat of sealer on it and let my wife know to treat it gently.

I was surprised how many people think Viking products suck. Lots of negative reviews abound on the internet. If I was to buy a whole new range I think I'd avoid this brand.

Cheers,

Andy Dale

Gas is flowing to all, but the front left burner will not ignite.


hello, it sounds like your Spark switch went out its located just under you knob to check it you'll have to open the top of your range and look at the one for your bad burner and see if thairs any burn or black marks on it that'll be a dead give away to it being bad or going out, what probably happened is that the water caused a ground and burnt it out. if that's the case and you need to order a new one here's a web sight were you can order the part from all you have to do is put in your ranges part # and click on the things on the left side of the page to find the exact part for your appliance.

Viking Gas Burner issue?


is this a sealed burner unit? if so the burner base (the heavy brass part under the burner cap) has to be sitting just right. you will notice that it has holes around the the sides make sure that where your ignitor sparks to it that it aligns with the lowest hole on the burner base. if you have a great flame all around the burner after checking what i mentioned i would replace the spark module. if it continues to drive you crazy with the noise - just unplug it. the burners will continue working fine without power.

Gas Flow


suspect problem is with the regulator on the gas bottle as it would be unusual for all burners to be faulty at the same time. try substituting a new regulator
