Question about Cooktops
The valve for my cooktop are discontinued by Viking. wouldl it be safe to replace the faulty 12,000 btu valve(pa010062) with a 8,000 btu valve(pa010061)? My first thought is that it would be safe but the output would be that of 8,000 btu making it a less powerfull burner. I normally cook on low to to medium with that burner so the lower btu should not affect my cooking negitively any thoughts or experences?
Safety factors first, gas comes out of the tube the burner valve is mounted on, so double check all connections first. (Use liquid soap to test) With that being said, although Viking does produce this part anymore, the body of the valve would be the same in turning and interior function. I had to rebuild a valve in the past and still works to this day. So this decision is all yours to make, as a certified service tech and if this was in my home yes I would, but I could not do this for a customer.
I hope this helps
