This can be cause dby one of 2 problems.

When you turn the control to turn the Griddle on, does it come immediately or do you have to turn it a long way before it comes on?
.
If it turns on immediatly then it is more than likely the Ignitor

If you have to turn it a long way you have a defective Thermostat

How do I clean a Viking griddle that hasbeen


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.

I was given a 36" magic chef gas cooktop with griddle. It was very greasy and dirty, all the burners were sticky and slow to get turned on, but 2 of them refuse to turn on, parts lists say the griddle...


If it's two burners on the same side that won't light, it is probably the igniter for that side. If so, remove the grates, griddle, and griddle sub pan, and then lift up the main "pan (if it's like mine, it's hinged at the back and lifts up). Now, if each burner on that side has a tube going to the middle between the burners, the igniter is in that middle section. Mine is a small plug-in ceramic and metal part (see photo). If yours looks like this, contact me at jazzskier@verizon.net, I have a spare.

Viking 30" gas professional series cooktop sparking problem


And before that Most likely one of the ignition switches (they are under knobs) got shorted possibly due to spilled liquid or a cleaning stuff sprayed on. In that case it should stop sparking after a switch drys. Still no go replace the spark control unit.

Thanks

Thermador Gas Range - Griddle ignition will not spark


I have a Thermador Gas Range PG364GDBS - Oven, 4 burners, and center griddle. All are gas. The four burners and gas oven work fine. The griddle just stopped working, no spark. Turning on the griddle control, the gas valve opens(hear it), gas flows (smell it), but the ignitor will not spark (no loud or faint spark that I can hear). I got a replacement ignition device (mount at the burner) thinking it might be the problem, but still no spark. I checked the AC voltage at the terminal and measured 39 VAC between the terminal and ground. Not sure if that is the correct voltage. Any insights or advice would be great.

Clicking noise on cooktop even when all burners ignite


I have a viking gas cooktop. The ignitor on one of my front burners wouldn't stop clicking even after the flame ignited. I swapped that ignitor with the ignitor from a back burner, expecting that the problem was with the ignitor and that the back burner would start to click incessantly, but at least I'd have my favorite front burner for use. Instead, the front burner was then only clicking 50% of the time and the back burner was fine, suggesting the problem was related to the burner not the ignitor. I pulled the front ignitor a bit away from the burner and now it is working normally. Hope this helps.
