Question about Viking Professional VGRC365-4GD Stainless Steel Gas Range

1 Answer

I have a vgrc365 4burner gas range and the oven area does not lig

My oven area does not light properly so when i turn the oven on to 350 degree the flame underneath has a very low flame and it is on one side only so it takes awhile to get up to temperature,also my two burners on the top do not spark for the gas to ignite, oh and bought this stove in 2003 if that helps.

I was wondering the parts on something like this would cost and the labor to expect from a service person.

thanks for your help

    We have a Viking gas range, VGIC365-6BSS, which came inour new house we bought in Dec 2001. The oven has two glowbar ignitors, and both glow red when the oven is turned on, but only the left hand one will light the gas tube. The right one does not ignite the gas.



    Once the left side gas is lighted, a few seconds later, it turns off and makes a whining sound while it "deflates." A few seconds after shutoff, the gas relights again, and the cycle starts anew.



    My husband, an engineer, measured the resistance in the two solenoids of the oven gas valve and found one with a resistance of 1 ohm and the other open (infinite resistance).



    I use this oven almost daily, as I bake quite a bit. I have had the glowbar ignitors replaced not once, but twice. The repair man said they are like lightbulbs and burn out after a certain number of starts and hours of operation. As I said, I seem to bake a lot.



    Just be certain that you check that the glowbars are both glowing. It not, you still need to determine if it is a problem with one side of the gas valve or if the glowbar is burnt out and needs replacement.



    For our issue, we think it is a problem with the gas valve. Can anyone corroborate?

I have the same range. That model uses two flames each ignited by a hot metal ignitor. The side not lighting has a failed ignitor. The part number is PB040001, sells for $45 on eBay and any half useful guy can install it.

Whirlpool gas oven is taking three times as long to cook something,what is wrong?


have you checked with an oven type thermometer for 350 degrees against the setting of 350 degrees,if its off very far then its the oven temp sensor in the upper left middle or right rear wall of the oven thats bad it looks like a small pencil type rod 2" to*' long it merely unplugs off the oven s control panel in the rear,you can test its resistance also to get an idea if it is your culprit,otherwise the oven element could have a hot spot in it and not letting all the current thru to properly heat the element,it will be dis-colored in that area

Large oven is not heating properly.


Had same issue - replaced the ceramic ignitors and most of my problem was solved. Apparently ignitors require replacement every 3-5 years. When they start to go it takes forever for your oven to heat up ... they don't glow properly causes the gas valve stays partially closed - ie hence less flame/heat. It may also significantly increase the amount of time it takes for the burner to light at all - essentially for the same reason.

On my oven the other issue was the burner itself ... it had corroded somewhat so the flame didn't automatically 'move' around to the other side of the burner. I removed the burner & cleaned the surface with a brass brush - problem soved. So essentially I had two issues - burner requiring maintenance & replacment of the ignitors.

As an aside I'm no expert - just relaying my experience.

Whirlpool SF36 Gas Oven - F3 F2 ERROR above 350 degrees


Unplug the range.
The oven temperature sensor has failed and must be replaced.
Remove the racks. Remove the temperature sensor located up high on the back wall of the oven.
It is a short thin round piece of metal.

I have a frigidaire stove that heats to 50 degrees hotter than the know setting. Can it be adjusted to read correctly?


There is a calibration method to adjust the oven thermostat plus/minus 35 degrees if it is a digital display. The method varies depending on the model range. This calibration method is used to adjust the thermostat if it is not keeping proper tempature. For example if you are setting the oven to 350 and the actual temp it is keeping is 325 then you could use the calibration method to adjust it plus 25 degrees to correct the temp. Just so you know electric ovens will keep a pretty even temp but gas ovens will vary by 40 or more degrees to keep an "average" temp. For example the burner will come on when the oven is 330 degrees and turn off at 370. 330+370 then divide by 2=350. So a oven thermometer may not show you the temp you set it at in a gas oven but does not mean the oven temp is off.

Oven shuts down before reaching correct temperature


You will need to check the oven calibration using a thermocouple based thermometer(the one you stick in the oven is not reliable). Electric ovens should keep a near constant tempature so if you have it set to 350 the oven should stay around 350 once temp is reached. Now gas ovens are a little different. Most use a on/off thermostat and that means the temp can vary from 320 degrees to 370 degrees to keep an average tempature of 350. So if it is a gas oven you will need to let it warm-up for 10 minutes then start taking the lowest and highest 5 consectutive readings. Then add the 5 reads together and then divide the number by 5 and it should be within 10 degrees of the set tempature. If it is off by more than 50 degrees then you might not be able to get it back to proper calibration. The calibration methods are different for each range and depend on the type of thermostat you have digital(push button controls) or manual(knob). The owner's manual for your range might contain the instructions or consult the manufacture's website for the instructions.

Kenmore gas oven does not reach operating temperature


If your oven is 20 years old the temperature sensor system might no longer be accurate, if you have access to a temperature measuring device that can confirm that the oven is not reaching 350 then run it up and check that its not just your indicator light system. Some oven burners have air control and yours may have accumulated oven soil over the years. If your burner. Is behind a short wall like mine is, use a mirror and torch to check. A clean can bring things back to standard. Flame heat is from a good mix of. Gas and Air...

Oven temperature does not get hot enough.


Hi, It sounds like the ignitor might be getting weak and opening the gas valve conditantly. Try setting a temperature and watch to see the ignitor glow. The flame should ignite within 30-45 seconds. If the flame ignites to heat rith away, it should get up to temp before shutting down.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further with this issue.

Thanks
