Most likely cause is food on the burner or down inside the burner holes or possibly in the gas tube that feeds gas to your burner.

If it were mine Id take off the burner and gas feed tube going to it and clean them out with soap and water and get a small drill bit about the same size or a little smaller than the holes that are around the burner and push it through the holes by hand and rotate them by hand in the little holes and verify they are clean and unobstructed.If its a light weight burner like aluminum DO NOT Put the drill bit in a drill and drill the holes out, Some burners are so thin and cheep you could easily drill an extra unwanted hole in the back of the burner.If its a heavy duty cast iron burner you could use a drill if you are very carefull .there could possibly be greese or something inside the burner itself ,try to clean it out if possible.Some times insects like a small house spider will make a web or cacoon or something in there if you dont use it very often.

So after cleaning the burner ( inside and out) , and the gas tube,with soap and water, you dry it off with a clean cloth . If you have access to an air compressor with a blow tip, you would thoroughly blow out each hole on the burner ,and front and back of every other nook and crany or hole there is very thouroughly .After all that reasemble itand try it out. If thats not the problem then I dont know what it could be unless some how your gas supply is getting contaminated with something else before it gets to your stove . If this would be the case then all your gas burners will burn black. If it is only one burner that burns black then there has to be something wrong with that specific burner or gas supply tube going to the burner. Good luck with it ,Sincerely, Keith

Viking gas oven model # VGIC3656BSS, serial #022404-2919 takes FOREVER to preheat up. Sometimes in excess of 40 minutes. Been a problem for a while. Looks like flames at bottom do not increase when oven...


When increasing the temp. on a gas range the oven's burners do not increase flame size as the cooktop burners do. It just keeps the burner lighted for a longer amount of time.

First if you can see the burners do they light within about a min. or less. If no you probably have bad igniters which are not lighting the burners as quickly as they should or they are "opening up" (stops working) when they get too hot. In this case replacement of the igniters should solve the problem.

Second if it lights quickly but still takes a while to heat; you want to look at the burners to ensure that the flames are down both sides of the burner tube and not dancing around too much. If only part of the two sides of the burner tubes are lighted then a pluged orifice or burner tube is the most likely cause. Once cleaned it should work fine.

As with anything mechanical there are numurous possiblities for something not working correctly and above are the two most popular reasons that come to my mind.

I smell gas when the dryer is running but not when it is not running. Is this normal?


No not normal. Have this checked out thouroughly for leaks. More specifically around the dryer coils and gas valve. Check the burner tube for rust holes. Any holes in the burner tube and it must be replaced.

I have a Viking Grill model VGBQ530 with cast iron burners that need replacement. I cannot find the exact model no. with these replacement burners however it appears that Viking now have a replacement made...


That is correct. Viking no longer supports the Cast Iron Burners. There is an aftermarket Burner VIKU1 that comes with mounting brackets to convert older Viking Grills that used a Cast Iron Burner to be able to switch to the stainless steel burner. The large bracket attaches to the center tube and has two screw holes and screws for mounting to the rear of the housing. The two smaller brackets mount to the two holes at the rear wall of the housing and create a ledge for the end of the two tubes to rest on.

I am uncertain as to why my barbeque smokes black and leaves a soot film on the whole inside of the barbeque and on the meat that I am cooking. It is certainly a cheap model but I replaced the burner and...


Can you see the smoke coming from the tip of the flame itself? Did you not have this problem before you replaced the burners? If yes to both, then the problem is with the venturi tube of the burner not providing enough air. The venturi tube is the part of the tube where the gas jet from the valve first enters it. There are some holes that control the air/gas mix by their configuration and size. Perhaps you have the wrong model replacement burner. The orifice (very small hole) out of which the gas shoots into the venturi, and the venturi tube itself are both designed slightly differently for use with Propane (bottled) or Natural (piped) gas. Perhaps your new burner has an adjustable venturi to allow more air. If so, remove the rocks so that you can see the flame and adjust by trial and error.

All of the sudden my front right burner will not light. I clicks like it wants to light and you can smell the gas but it will not light.All the other burners are working fine.


Take a look at the burner when it is clicking and make sure the igniter electrode is creating a spark. If the burner head is removable pull off the burner cap and head. Inspect the burner head for debris and clean. Make sure any small holes on the burner head are not plugged. There is usually a small hole where the electrode is that a gas must exit for proper ignition. If the burner has a center igniter for two burners then inspect the flash tube for that burner and make sure it is centered and there is no obstructions in the flash tube. On that burner there are little holes located in front of the flash tube call step-up ports. Check to make sure those little holes are not plugged.

Low flame on burner...


Remove the burner and check the flexible tubes for kinks or blockages. The flexible tubes usually just slip over the backs of the valves. Spiders love to get in there and block them. Also check that the holes in the burners are not clogged. Be careful when reseating the flexible tubes to be sure that they are properly seated on the back of the valves. Failure to properly seat the flexible tubes can cause leakage there, and the gas can ignite at the back of the valves and not reach the burner. Be certain that the replacement burner is designed to use with your grill and the flexible tubes mate properly with the back of the valves.

When I try to light my jenn air gas cook top it clicks but will not light. But it will light with a match


Your electronic ignitor is bad. You can buy a replacement ignitor where you bought your grill. Just about any hardware store will have a replacement ignitor. They are real easy to replace. There is 1 wire to the back of the ignitor. There is a retaining nut on the switch. Remove the switch and replace with new switch. Plug wire into ignitor, Turn gas on and test ignitor.

Happy Grilling
