Question about Viking 37 in. VGSU161 Gas Cooktop
Some burners not sparking
Usually any control knob will activate all four igniters it's usually a faulty pressure switch rather than the igniter pack module.

SOURCE: Viking Gas Burner issue?
is this a sealed burner unit? if so the burner base (the heavy brass part under the burner cap) has to be sitting just right. you will notice that it has holes around the the sides make sure that where your ignitor sparks to it that it aligns with the lowest hole on the burner base. if you have a great flame all around the burner after checking what i mentioned i would replace the spark module. if it continues to drive you crazy with the noise - just unplug it. the burners will continue working fine without power.

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.

I'm sorry to say that there is not a wonder solution for this. You try laying a damp cloth on the aluminum part to try and allow the moisture to soak in the clean it off.
Don't use anything abrasive as the aluminum will scratch.

The water that you spilled onto the cooktop has shorted out the ignition switch in the gas control knob. Don't worry though no permanent damage has been done. Leave it unplugged from the electrical outlet for a day or two until the liquid dries out. You can manually light the burners with matches or a BBQ lighter in the meantime. If you want to try and speed up the drying process you can use a hair dryer.

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.

Under the burners where you have the gas pipes and valves
you have only one electrical part the ignite spark module. This plastic box has
one input the power wire and for outputs one for each burner. Now you can check
if the wire going to the problematic burner is loose or cut out and fix it. If
all wires look ok then the Spark device is bad and need a new one.
