SOURCE: Only 1 of 5 burners is working on my Viking electric cooktop

By only 1 burner working, I take you mean only 1 ignites, then it sounds as though you have an issue with the spark module being defective. There is usually an access panel on the bottom of the unit, although not on all of them. Remember to disconnect from the electric.

If it turns on immediatly then it is more than likely the Ignitor

SOURCE: viking cooktop gas unit ignition clicks on all burners when I use

Electric gas igniters sometimes get stuck in one position causing a clicking sound. The clicking sound that you hear is the electric arc that is pulsing from the igniter conductor (wire) to ground (the gas burner). It receives power from the electrical outlet that the stove is plugged into.
Residue from food and sometimes cleaning products may be preventing the igniter from producing a spark (Arc) to the base of the burner. This is a common problem that occurs when the stove has been cleaned or food is allowed to build up. Make sure that the igniter and the burner base are clean and dry. This will help with proper operation. Oven cleaner and a small tooth brush may be used to accomplish this. Another problem with ignition may occur if you have too little (touching) or too much space between the igniter and the base of the burner; it will prevent the burner from igniting. You should only have a little more space than the thickness of a nickel between the burner base and the igniter. A good “blue” arc from the igniter to the burner base is optimal. If this doesn’t work, you may need to replace the electric igniter module. Good luck.

The Viking gas stove - 6 burner - clicks constantly -- it won't stop. it has done this for years and usually goes off after a while but now it wont stop clicking. The burner that is not even on click.


Hello,
The problem is one(or more) of the 6 switches that turn on the spark when that burner is turned on is shorted and stays closed (on) all the time.To determine which one it is the front face has to be removed,with THE POWER OFF a meter set to low ohms rating is used to check each switch by removing the wires to it and see which one has continunity (ZERO OHMS) when its off and that switch that slips on the burner valve shaft is the bad switch(s) and needs to be replaced to keep it from sparking all the time.
Please note though, in a perfectly working cooktop all burners spaks at the same time and only the only one that has the gas flowing to it will ignite,that part is normal.

I hope this helps you to repair your cooktop,
Gene

Our stove is clicking when we are not trying to ignite it. The clicking comes from the starters of the front three burners. What should we do to fix it?


this cook top uses sw's n eachburner control shaft. one or more than one is bad . i would replace all . all the same . they slide on burner shages and connect to each other . some units are pre wired and you will have to pur the harness with the sitches . not a hard job . the spark moduel could be bad but i don't think so .. mm
