Hi,

This can be two faults;

1) If you light the oven and it takes ages to go to high flame or doesn't go to high flame it is a component called an FSD ( flame safeguard device)

2) If the oven does go to high flame after you have lit it but goes low and stays low then it is the thermostat

I hope this helps

Steve :o)

you do not need to take apart any switches, all you need - unplug it from power, open front panel (2 screw on each side) remove all knobs, there is 3 more screws behind them). unscrew thermostat 2 screws behind knob. open top part of stove, remove grates and cover. you will see wires to thermostat unplug them and plug one by one to new thermostat. remove old thermostat from inside the oven (it has bracket inside). put the new one. close everything back.

After turning on either of the ovens in my Viking gas range, they will intermittently make a hissing sound followed by a series of popping sounds with a gas odor and they are very slow to heat.


call a gas fitter as you have a problem with the jets/ supply that is creating a dangerous situation leaving unburnt gas ( you can smell ti) that could cause an explosion

Fan stays on long after oven is shut off in brand new viking daul fuel range. It's been on now for 45 minutes. All controls are on OFF.


loads of ovens do this. It's a pain, especially if you eat in the kitchen. If you switch the appliance off and on at the wall it usually stops it. Why the fan stays on, god knows. pointless.
