Re: Viking range creating a lot of soot?
This is a definate sign of improper gas/air mixture. The flame needs to be even and blue.
Make sure the orifice is clean. Usually the burner (oven) will have a "Door" or "Shutter" type adjustment where you can turn it and add or choke off air. This is the primary air supply. The secondary air supply is usually supplied by louvers or vents close to the burner area.

Adjust the air mixture on the oven burner. This is a metal part where the brass orifice is mounted on the burner valve. You loosten the screw on the side of it enough to be able to slide it back and forth. Get a flame going and move the barrel until the tips of the flame in the burner is completely blue...no part of the flame should be orange. Once that is done tighten the screw . automotive brake fluid is an excellent soot cleaner. It smells bad so use it with a lot of ventilation.
Inspect your flame tube to see if all the holes have a nice blue flame coming from them.
If the flame is not coming from all the holes or the flame is yellow or orange with some soot build up, then have a qualified technician service the unit immediately.
Do not use the oven until it has been inspected and certfied safe.
chanciec sounds like the unit isn't set for the proper fuel. Usually see this when natural gas unit is set for propane. See if the installation directions show converting the gas and adjusting the burners. You are running with too much fuel and not enough air. Since You haven't said what brand or type of range, if sealed burner, the venturnes in the center of the burners are what sets the air adjustment. Hope this at least tells you why this is happening.
