Viking professional induction cooktop large burners defective

Large Induction burners not firing up, lights blink as if they can't find pot that is placed on the burner. The smaller units of this 6 burner cooktop function. Any ideas? Available parts diagrams or authorized sources for parts?

    Does the unit have plenty of air circulation below it. Should not be installed over drawers.

Throw your circuit breaker that leads to this unit for a few seconds, then reset the breaker This unit is very sensitive to power fluctuations.

    We had a similar problem with the large induction burner on a 30" induction/radiant Viking VCCU cooktop. The failure seemed to have been triggered by a severe electrical storm and power outage. At first the problem persisted with 6-8 repeated resets of the main circuit breaker (we switched off the cooktop when not using it because we could hear the fan and induction mechanism running even though all cooktop switches were OFF and there was no induction heating.) After about five days of these on-off cycles, the unit seems to have reset and it is working normally again. Persistence may pay off.

ADDED; Problem reoccurred a third time. Close lightning strike + brief power outage knocked out the large induction burner only. Same symptoms as before and as descried in other posts. Repeated resets over several days (switching the circuit breaker ON to use the other burners to cook, then switching the unit OFF) again reset the unit and resolved the problem after several days. Patience rewarded. ADDED: Problem reoccurred. Same solution: Power outage again knocked out the large induction burner on our Viking electric cooktop. You could hear it repeatedly spin up, then turn off, even with the burner knob set to OFF. Repeatedly switching the circuit breaker off and on several times a day over two or three days finally reset the burner and it's working again.

One of the electric burners on our induction cooktop is misfiring and making noise. Who can fix these things? Is it better to buy a new one?


I recommend to buy a new one, induction cooktop prices have come down a lot and there are good ones available for about $1000. FOr me, the only problem with putting a new one in was the hole in the countertop was too small for the new cooktop (Viking has a smaller hole requirement than most other cooktops). So be sure to measure the hole in the countertop before you buy a new one so you can buy one that fits.

I have a prima induction single hob and haven't got a clue how to use it , haven't got the manual , help please


You need to have pots and pans that are verified for induction cook tops. Ordinary pans will not work. Once you do that it works like any other burner only you can control the temperature precisely. You can melt chocolate without burning it as well as deep frying foods without ruining the oil from excessive temperature. Try looking for the manual from the manufacturer's web site.

I am having error codes 35 and 75 come up on my induction cooktop


Thank you for your post, friend!
I located that on Electrolux Cooktop error codes "35" and "75" stand for input voltage too low. It could be an issue with your filter board or an issue within the voltages. I would recommend having a professional come out to your cooktop to properly diagnose to avoid any unnecessary part purchases. -Matt

You really can't. Ceramic can be repaired but it can be short term. There may be a sealer they can put in the opening.

One plate in Bellini induction cooktop continues to flash with a pot on it, yet the pot works on the other 3 plates. How do I fix?


Had the same problem after overusing one of the bigger elements on my bellini induction stove / cooktop to boil copious amounts water. Element eventually stopped working and would just flash power level similar to when it cant recognise an induction pot, but also made a clicking noise over and over. My solution was to turn mains power off at meter box, and back on to reset the stove. When power came back on stove was working again! might have reset some sort of cutout sensor inside stove but cant be certain. Anyway, worked for me so give it a go and see if it helps. good luck.
