Question about Viking VGBQ410-3RT Grill

Open Question

Interior lights and igniter not working

Power outlet has 120 volts per my electrician but none of the electronics on the grill work. Is there a bus fuse or something else I should look at? It has tripped the GFI a few times over the years, but that was easily remedied by resetting it.

SOURCE: Refrigerator trips GFI outlet

unlikely to be the defrost timer. more likely to be the defrost element. try disconnecting the element and see if it trips then. could be of course a wiring fault - frayed wires etc

SOURCE: My 48" Viking Range top trips the GFI

One leg of the power is "dead shorted" to ground. Use a Multimeter and start looking/testing to determine which component is bad.

SOURCE: No power to viking microwave unit.tripped fuse in

Check to see if you have a "reset" button on your microwave, or even just by pressing the "clear" button first. Check to see if you have a "master" or "red" reset or "test" button nearest to your microwave on a light switch and reset that if applicable. You could also check to see if your unit has a fuse and replace that. It's possible when you tripped the fuse in the house you might have blown the fuse in the microwave.

My george foreman grill will not power on


Check for power at the outlet where you plugged it in. Plug in a small lamp, if it doesn't light could be tripped breaker or blown fuse. I am assuming there is no switch for the outlet. With the lamp still plugged in and on plug in the grill and try to turn on. If the lamp goes off or dims noticeably, you have an electrical problem, contact your electrician. If the light does not dim and it does not get hot take to repair shop.

Coleman Powermate 6250/500 PM0545005 has power to just one side of the 120/240 outlet. the 120 volt outlets have none. Ran just fine onr week ago


The capacitor has no bearing as you have output on one leg. Take or have an electrician check the power from L1 to N and L2 to N right as it comes off the generator stator, before any breakers and receptacles. If you have no power still on one leg, the stator is bad. The rotor is fine as you indicate you have power on one leg, you may have lost one set of windings in sthe stator. Good Luck

We had a thunderstorm with lightening in the area. The LG was plugged in at the time, but NOT turned on. after the storm, the tv will not turn on. the little green button turns from red to green...


As an electrician, when someone loses more than 1 item of electronics in a day, its almost
always traceable to a nearby lightning strike, accompanied by inadequate surge protection for
the VCR/TV/Computer/Stereo/uninsured valuable electronic item/XBOX 360. Surge protection can
be provided by the consumer at the power strip (a good one with builtin protection and a
warranty costs $20, whereas a zero-protection 4-outlet or 6-outlet power strip will cost $4-$5).
Your electrician can provide whole-house protection, or per-circuit protection at
the breaker box, where a GFCI breaker (or better, an AFCI breaker) can be installed.
GFCI = ground fault circuit interruptor
AFCI = Arc fault circuit interruptor
Lightning protection is especially important in Florida, which is the "lightning capital of the world."
I've never found a good solution to lightning-fried electronics (random power supply components are destroyed), other than renters insurance or homeowners insurance.
The converter box may be replaced by DirecTV, you'd have to contact their customer
service at http://www.directv.com/DTVAPP/content/customerservice
If desperate, you could try replacing the entire TV power supply as a module, but even this provides
no guarantee of a fix - lightning damage can extend beyond the power supply.
When traveling, I will always unplug everything before I leave (except the security system),
and also turn off the breakers to unneeded house circuits (which kills the wall switches that
control interior lighting - forcing a burglar to use their flashlight instead of interior lighting)
which is the least convenient lightning protection, but highly effective, and cheap (free).

Hi there- I have three year old KGRC707 gas range. I am shipping it to east Africa (overseas) that has 220V electric standard. wil it work as it did in the US with or without a transformer? also can you...


I see a few problems with the coversion to 220VAC I will send a set of manuals and a phone number. Here is what the instalation manual says about wiring. If codes permit and a separate ground wire is
used, it is recommended that a qualified electrician
determine that the ground path is adequate.
Check with a qualified electrician if you are not
sure whether the range is properly grounded.
Do not ground to a gas pipe
A 120-volt, 60-Hz, AC-only, 15-ampere, fused
electrical circuit is required. A time-delay fuse or
circuit breaker is recommended. It is recommended
that a separate circuit serving only this range be
provided.
Electronic ignition systems operate within wide
voltage limits, but proper ground and polarity are
necessary. In addition to checking that the outlet
provides 120-volt power and is correctly grounded,
the outlet must be checked by a qualified
electrician to see if it is wired with correct polarity.
The wiring diagram is included in the literature
package. The wiring diagram can also be found on
the back of the range.
NOTE: The metal chassis of the range must be
grounded in order for the control panel to work. If
the metal chassis of the range is not grounded, no
keypads will operate. Check with a qualified
electrician if you are in doubt as to whether the
metal chassis of range is grounded.
I was thinking it would help you to know and not have your question unanswered. Good news or bad. Personally I see no problem stepping down the voltage and making a typical receptical. My views do not change requirements so best I follow those that made the eletrical requirements. Another problem is the cycles or hz. HZ is defined like this 1 Hertz = one time per second ad 60 is 60 per second. In europe and most countries outside the USA operate on 220 V @50 hz. A typical 120 V clock would run slower and a record player also. I think it would be better if you use something designed for the local area you are moving to.

For questions about features, operation/performance, parts accessories or service, call: 1-800-422-1230
Please rate my solution after I have helped you resolve the problem and communicate with me. I am offering my help to you free.

ShockSentry GFCI duplex receptacle child safety


Those GFCI's will stop functioning (as they are supposed too) if the electronics is bad. Nearby lightning strikes and power surges can knock out the electronics. Some GFCI's come from the factory bad out of the box. Also if wired incorrectly (make sure the incoming 120 volt wires are connected to the LINE side of the receptacle) The only other thing to check is if there is power to the GFCI. Test for 120 volts at the receptacle box. (testing from hot to neutral will rule out a bad neutral connection). Should read 120 volts. Otherwise, you'll have to replace the outlet :-(

GE Monogram ZGU48N6D- None of the Ignitors "click"


We just had that problem - the igniter is electric - if none of the burners are "clicking" it could be a power problem. unplug the stove and check whether the outlet is working. In our case, the outlet the stove is plugged into has a "GFI outlet with a reset button. So we reset the outlet and that fixed the problem.

Refrigerator no power


Plug some other device into these same outlets or use a volt meter to verify power at the outlet.
You definitely have a house wire problem if the interior light does not come on and the bulb is good.
Also check 120 volts power at the fridge cord where it attaches to the terminal box.

Kenmore electric range 7909083461 not reaching temp


The technician is right.  The electrician should know that amperage X voltage = wattage.  So if you lower the voltage then you lower the wattage.  The element is like a light bulb, the higher the wattage the brighter or hotter it will be.  208 volts is at the minimum so the element won't be as hot as it should be.  208 volts is just enough to make it work.  Would appreciate a solved rating for expert advice.
