Question about Viking VGSC306-4B Gas Kitchen Range
I need to use a match to ignite the burners when I turn the knob - it will not ignite on its own. It sparks when the knob is turned but will not ignite without the help of a match. What could possibly be the problem? Thank you
If you are getting a spark, but no gas ignition, I am guessing that the gas is not reaching the ignitor. Burners have many holes that allow that create the flame pattern. There are usually one or two holes right next to the ignitor. If the holes are clogged or mis-alligned, there will not be any ignition. On sealed burner ranges, lift out the burner cap, clean it, and make sure it is alligned properly. On open burner ranges, inspect the holes near the ingnitor and use a small wire to clean them. Sometimes you have to remove the burner to get a good cleaning.
