Question about Viking VGIC305-4B Gas Kitchen Range
I have a gas Viking range with 4 burners. All of the burners are working and the indicator light for the oven works, but the oven is not heating at all - cold after 5-10 minutes. Could this be an electric problem? The oven worked fine until an electrician was at my house working on an unrelated problem.
It could be the Igniter that is not working.
It's the most common part for ovens not working on gas ranges.
The glow bar can glow, but if it does not reach and stay between 3.2-3.7 amps it needs replacing. You can put an ampprobe on one of the wires from the glow bar to measure this, or you could take a resistance reading of the glowbar. Resistance should be between 50-150ohms. If it is not within this the glowbar is bad and needs replacing.

It sounds like the ignitors are suspect. This may be a weak component for Vikings. This link recommends a Maytag replacement part.

Replace both of the ignitors...They have gotten weak.
Thanks for contacting Fixya.
