The spark mod. needs to be replaced again. Check and make sure that the wires are connected to it good though and that they have a good connection. If all looks well though you will most likely need to replace that spark mod. again. Let me know if you have any other questions and if this was helpful. Good luck.

Rotisserie burner has to be lit with a match and will not stay on by itself. I have to push control knob in, even after it is hot. Also looking to replace igniter for left burner. Thanks.


From what you are describing, it sounds like your rotisserie burner may have a bad thermocouple. You can order the parts from Viking, the igniter for the left main burner will require you to remove the front panel to replace, but is fairly straight forward after that. To replace the thermocouple, you will have to fish it down from the burner and under the grill to behind the front panel, not hard, just time consuming.

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

Viking gas stove top ignitors sparking incorrectly


all ignitors spark at the same time no matter which burner is turned on. If you are having trouble with one burner not lighting try cleaning around the ignitor with a small screw driver so the spark has a good path to ground.

Our stove is clicking when we are not trying to ignite it. The clicking comes from the starters of the front three burners. What should we do to fix it?


this cook top uses sw's n eachburner control shaft. one or more than one is bad . i would replace all . all the same . they slide on burner shages and connect to each other . some units are pre wired and you will have to pur the harness with the sitches . not a hard job . the spark moduel could be bad but i don't think so .. mm

Only 1 of 5 burners is working on my Viking electric cooktop


By only 1 burner working, I take you mean only 1 ignites, then it sounds as though you have an issue with the spark module being defective. There is usually an access panel on the bottom of the unit, although not on all of them. Remember to disconnect from the electric.

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.

Ignitor won't shut off


The Viking manual says that an ignitor that continues to try to light even after the burner has been lit indicates improper grounding, and that an electrician should be consulted.

Perhaps you could try to replace the ignitor, and see if that fixes the problem?

I have a similar age, 6-burner 36" rangetop.
