Question about Viking Kitchen Ranges
Old Viking VGSC 305 range. Oven ignitors stopped working and I opened it up to find large holes in the burner tubes next to each ignitor. I installed new burner tubes and ignitors. Problem is that new ignitors do not heat up at all. The broiler ignitor works fine. Any ideas on what might keep the oven burner ignitors from heating up? I have replaced ignitors several times before without any issues. Thanks.
Serial number break will help if it's ooen or sealed burner. Go from there. Or distribution at 800.488.9868

Testimonial: "Thanks. I have a voltmeter and if I understand you I need to check the 2 wires on the right side of the oven that lead into the wall and up to the thermostat. So positive lead of voltmeter to one of these wires but is other lead on voltmeter to wire from left side (leading to safety valve) or to oven wall itself. Thanks for the help."

SOURCE: JGBP33 BAKE IGNITOR
You did not post a complete model number, but this should help:
Take racks out of oven. Remove two screws at the very back of the oven bottom. Lift back side of bottom up and back a bit to remove oven floor. Remove flame spreader (one nut at center). ignitor is at the back left of burner, most likely a WB2X9154 (round style) ignitor. The entire burner can be removed rather easily at this point if you remove the two screws at the front and disconnect the ignitor wire (if you wish to have easier access to ignitor mounting screws.)

SOURCE: Oven will not heat up.
eerb, most likley your ignitor failed. When you turn the oven on to bake you should hear a relay click on the electronic control (clock). You can do a couple of things here. If you have a ohmmeter the ignitor should ohm out at between 50 and 150 ohms. You can physically swap out the bake and broil ignitors to see if the ignitor comes on in bake. Or you can swap the bake and broil wires on the board. They should be marked BA and BR. This way when you turn on bake, the broil ignitor should glow and verify you have power going to it. Carefull when testing, be sure to kill power to the range before any changes. Catriver...post back

replace the electrode that's the wire or pilot tip, it has a sensor built in, when it gets hot it stops automatically. if the electrode is between the front and rear burners, there are small holes on the burners going down on the side of the burner facing the ignition. they need to be clean. try a paper clip and insert the clip in side the holes.
