Question about Viking VGSC306-4B Gas Kitchen Range
We have a Viking Professional Termal Bake range. It was converted from natural gas to propane and had no problems until this year.
Sounds like your ceramic ignitors have worn out - apparently they are to be replaced every 3-5 years. I had the same issue - oven took forever to het up.
I have two ingnitors in the larger oven & 1in the smaller one. Easy to replace (60$/each) - two wire and one screw each. The theory is when they fail to heat up properly the gas valve doesn't open fully, or won't open at all.
Also I'd clean the burners when in there ... mine corroded a bit and required brass wire brushing. There is a small horizontal cut ont the burner that goes one half the way around the burner that had 'filled in' (the cut is about the thickness of a piece of paper) which prevented the flame from moving to the opposite side of the burner - so essentially only one side of the burner lit.

Here are two instances of when food "bakes poorly:"
On many units with a mechanical thermostat, you can remove the thermostat knob and adjust the knob itself to more accurately represent the actual setting of the thermostat. If, when you remove the knob, there's a screw on the back of it with a small calibration plate, you can loosen the screw, adjust the plate, then tighten the screw again. If the knob isn't adjustable, and the oven temperature is off by more than 30 to 40 degrees, you need to replace the thermostat to solve the problem.
