SOURCE: Calibration

Electric ovens are calibrated behind the temp knob. Pull the knob straight off of the shaft and look at the back of the knob. There should be a metal slide with a scale and a little set screw. Loosen the screw and move the slide in the direction indicated for your needs.

SOURCE: Oven will not maintain temprature

This is a parts problem, I think called the burner ignitor. It is a pn oven part. We have had it in the past and are experiencing it again. We have had our stove for about 15 years, so I guess it is not too bad a problem, but not inexpensive. The oven is letting the gas be off too long between reignitions, so it does not maintain temperature. The first time we realized the probelem was with the Thanksgiving turkey (pink in the joints.)

We had to have the part replaced about 7 years ago and the part was about a $200 part plus service call. I am sure it more costly now. Hopefully you can get yours under warranty.

SOURCE: Viking 30" Range - Igniter works - but NO FLAME in oven or ranges

No pilot light need to be ignited. You may need a new ignitor. It might not be catching. If you pull the bottom oven plate off you can see the ignitor on the side of the burner and see if it is in its place or broken or just plain old. It is a simple fix. You can buy a universal ignitor or contact Viking and they will sell it to you. Its only two wires and can do it yourself if you are somewhat technical. Good luck.

Is there a fuse on the Viking Pro freestanding gas model? Can't find anything in the manuel. Thanks

Hm, there is a hi limit switch between the range top and oven cavity. Ck your door to see if its sealing . If heat is escaping have a servicer look at your hinge receivers so the door will seal.

Oven temperature is off by 25 degrees

Unplug the power and wait 15 minutes. Plug it in and retest to see if temp comes back to normal. + or - 5 degrees is normal. If still same problem than you will need to re[lace the controller board.

What does F2 mean

F2 means that the oven temperature has exceeded 590 degrees with the door in the unlocked position. There is high resistance or interference in the oven termperature sensor. Replace the oven temperature sensor.
