Viking Designer Series gas cooktop not cleaning well

I have the "pretty" gas cooktop with sealed burners and am not able to clean the aluminum sealed part at the base of the burner.  Does anyone know how to get this part clean without damaging the glass surface?

I'm sorry to say that there is not a wonder solution for this. You try laying a damp cloth on the aluminum part to try and allow the moisture to soak in the clean it off.
Don't use anything abrasive as the aluminum will scratch.

How to remove the top panel of the cooktop?


To remove the top so that you can replace the electrodes, you just need to pull all the burner grates off and knobs. Then remove all the burner caps and rings off so that all you're left with is the cooktop and the burner bases. There are screws going into each burner base. Remove all the screws and the burner bases will pull up and off and then you can pull the top of the cooktop up and off.

It is aluminum and it is a pain to clean. Use a Magic Eraser sponge by Mr. clean and order so Star Clean (only available on the web from TJT products) and it will clean it right up. I tried everything too and couldn't get anything to work. I was seriously considering getting rid of the cooktop but this combo did the trick.

All 4 electrodes spark when only one is turned on


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.
