Question about Viking Ovens

Open Question

Oven symbols worn off

The descriptive text on the front of the oven is partially worn off, is there any way to replace it? Not the knobs, but the metal plate surrounding the knobs. Words like 'temperature' are partially worn away.

SOURCE: Because I haven't got a manual, and the oven is

There are two controls for the top oven and grill.

The far left one is purely for the oven and oven lights. The middle control of the three on the panel is for the grill. The grill will only work when the front is down, there is a micro switch that controls this.

The grill control is a dual action control. Turn it one way and it is the full grill, turn it the other and it is only the inner element. Left is the small grill, right is the larger, full grill. Oven lights do not come on with the grill control, you have to turn the lights on with the oven control.

The oven has a small element so takes a long time to heat up.

If you need a copy of the handbook, supply an email address and you can have access to my BT digital vault where a copy is stored.

If you go any hardware store (Lowe's, Home Depot) they have universal knob replacement kits. Take your old knob with you and ask for help from someone who looks like they know something (the old guy). Its so much cheaper this way, exact replacement knobs can run $20 or more each. Good luck!!

Hello -

There are really only 3 options:

1. Replace the fascia panel
2. Print a diagram of the fascia panel and keep it near the oven for reference.
3. Re-mark the numbers and symbols on the control panel manually!

Option 3 would look awful and I think it's a non-starter. Replacing the fascia panel wont be cheap but I should be able to find the part number and suppliers for you if required. I will need to know your location for this. I can also provide instructions for replacing it.

Personally, if it was my oven, I would take the simplest and cheapest option, which is to keep a diagram of the oven controls near the oven for reference. I've uploaded the diagrams of the controls to Flickr as images posted on these pages tend to be a little on the small side.

Clock/timer Controls

I'm 99% certain these are from the 251B, but if they don't relate to your model, please let me know.

You can't download these images from Flickr. I have simply put them there for you to determine whether this option will be of any use to you. If you decide on this option, I can email the files to you or upload them somewhere else where you can download from. You will then be able to print them.

Hope this helps. If you decide you would like to replace the control panel, please let me know your location. You can reply to me by clicking on "Add a Comment" below your question.

Try printing and laminating this. Then stick it on the side of a cupboard maybe?

Looking for a manual for Whirlpool BS0801/WH oven


I have a paper copy of the manual - if you need to know anything more than the information below post a more specific question.

The function symbols on Knob F, clockwise from the top, are as follows:
  • 0 = Off
  • Lamp symbol = Lamp Only, no fan, no heating.
  • Fan + Drip Symbol = Lamp + Fan, but no Heating - this is for defrosting.
  • Fan inside a Circle symbol = Lamp + Fan + Oven Heating - this is the normal cooking position. The temperature of the oven is set on the Temperature Knob.
  • Final position = Grill. The temperature of the Grill is set on the Grill knob.
The red indicator light only comes on when the Oven is heating (not the Grill), and goes off when the oven has reached it's set temperature.

The bulb is 25W 230V Type E-14 300 Degree C.

The oven draws a maximum of 2300W so requires a 10A supply.

We are about to move into a house with a Ariston wall oven, model no: FB 86 C. All the symbols around the 2 knobs have been rubbed off, is there a transfer or someway of finding what the symbols should...


This is a normal feature for this brand. The decal comes off when cleaning with anything other than pure water. They will sell you a whole new oven front for about $100 so you can do it again next time you wipe down the front panel when cleaning your work top. Please complain to Ariston head office and tell them what you think of their product. The manual doesn't show the detail so I guess you will have to buy either a proper oven or get ripped off by Ariston for a new panel ( you could always send the new panel back after copying the letters). I'll never buy an Ariston product again.

I can only speak for the 720. If you want a circuit/wiring diagram for this one, then I need an email address. I will then register this on my BT Digital Vault and you can the download the whole manual.
Looking at the diagrams, the neon for the main oven has white and black wires.
The white wire from the main oven neon goes onto the same connector on the thermostat block as the white wire to the oven element. The black wire from the neon goes to a common terminal on the top oven neon, which then goes onto P6 of the top oven switch (still black wire).
If you need any more info, then let me know.
