Do you hear gas? If so, take a needle and put it through each one of the small holes where the gas comes out.... Also look for a little "white-dust" where the sparker makes the spark. (located probaly at back of burner). If there is a white dust build-up scrape it off with something (needle) and give her another go...

Is the little center post of the removable frame over your burners in the little notch where it is supposed to rest?

This is likely caused by either a dirty ignition electrode, a cracked ignition electrode, or a bad spark re-ignition module.
Clean and inspect the six electrodes for cracks, If that doesn't solve it order a new
Ignition module from an internet appliance dealer that carries Viking parts like Appliance Zone.
If you replace the Ignition module yourself, make sure to turn off the circuit breaker to the range/cooktop before you work on it. Also, make a drawing of where the different color leads are plugged into the ignition module before you unplug the wires and plug them into the new re-ignitor. If the unit is under one year, this should be covered under the warranty.
Viking had a recall a few years back on their ignitor modules.

I have the exact same problem, same model. Read the instructions on this website for replacing the ignitors...looks complicated, also generic to all Viking cooktops. Let's see what we response we get.
