Question about Viking VGSC306-4B Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

One stovetop burner does not initiate igniter sparking.

6-burner (gas) with all components functioning normally except: ONE of the stovetop burners won't initiate igniter. Gas comes on but igniter does not spark - on just this one burner. The malfunctioning one does spark normally when any of the other five burners is turned on. Thanks!

Its most likely the igniter. It might just be dirty, but its easy to install a new one. They are attached by two screws and a single plug. I'd suggest turning the power off to the stove before plugging in a new one.

My rangemaster professional + 90 gas is when you turn on the oven and turn up the gas all the burners igniters start working can you please help .


Hello. Normally the ignitors WILL all start sparking--only the burner you've initiated will turn on. All the ignitors are wired together with a harness underneath the cooktop. This harness is connected to a spark module and when you choose whichever burner, it simply energizes the module. Only the burner with gas flowing will ignite. I hope this helps you!

Viking model VGR48 stovetop burners will not ignite?


First shut off the gas supply & disconnect electrical power to the range.
  • Remove all the burner control knobs, grates, burner caps & trim rings.
  • Remove the 2 screws securing the manifold panel, one from each corner. The panel will drop down.
  • Remove the screws from each manifold pipe mounting bracket. Remove 1/4 inch hex head bolt from the center of the manifold pipe. Push supply tube back to release from manifold pipe. Lift the cooktop assembly at the front to clear the 1/2 inch locator pins attached to the top of the bodyside.
  • Place cardboard between each side of cooktop & bodyside to prevent damage.
  • Move the cooktop to one side, being careful not to put stress on the wiring harness on left side.
  • Remove the wire from the electrode.
  • Remove the screw from the electrode mounting bracket to release the electrode.
You can replace the electrode & reassemble following instructions in reverse order.

One front burner ignites but the igniters continue to spark. when all other burners ignite the igniters immediately stop sparking. this problem started right after spilling some water on burner.


I would make sure you have wiped up all the water you spilled, You may need to take the burners off the stovetop and make sure the tiny little pinholes for the gas to come out are fully dry, Than re-assemble everything and try again.

Ran out of propane, Stovetop has ignitors and they seem to be functioning fine. When turning on knobs there is plenty of propane smell but the burners fail to light.


This is normal when you run out of propane. Depending on the length of line you have, there will be a delay in relighting it again because of insert air in the line. My advice to you is to first air out the house til the smell is gone. Then turn on only 1 burner with the igniter sparking and also hold a handheld bbq lighter at the burner to ensure that the gas burner lights when the air is finally purged. This should only take 20-30secs. If it takes longer, air out the room and try again. Use common sense and please be careful!

Burners ignite simultaneously (clicking)


When you set a burner to light, all burners spark. This is normal. Move knob back off the spark position as soon as burner lights. All sparking will stop.

Stovetop ignitor


Not that this will fix it for sure, sometimes it does. Remove the top of the burner that is causing the problem, and take some sand paper and clean the top of the ignitor and the bottom of the burner itself. That will sometime cure the problem. If not, you could have a bad spark module, or a wiring issue.

Gas stovetop not igniting without matches


If the rest of the surface igniters are working, more than likely your spark module is working fine. (This is normal, by the way) I would suspect that you have a bad spark electrode at the burner in question, a bad burner switch, or bad wiring.

I found several part listings for the model number you posted this question under at repairclinic.com. You will need to provide a more complete model number in order to narrow your search to ensure you get the right part. You can find your model number on a nameplate around the oven door opening, or lower drawer opening (if equipped). Some manufacturers also place this information on the back of the range.

I hope this helps answer some of your questions. Please reply back to this posting if you need further troubleshooting guidance.
