Question about Cooktops

1 Answer

Viking ceramic cooktop numbers washed off

How to replace numbers that were "silk screened" onto stainless steel frame - and washed off. These are the numbers surrounding, but physically separate from the control knobs. They indicate the heating levels for each control knob which is used to control one or both of two concentric elements per knob. Viking's only solution is to buy a new cooktop. How ridiculous. Have you seen this problem before and/or do you have a reasonable solution for it?
Thank you,
Dan Ellis

Scott,
On each of the heating elements there is a thermostat that does two things. It is a high limit safety thermostat and then a different set of contacts turn on the hot surface light. Unfortunately, you can't just replace that part. You will need to isolate which element it is with a mutimeter and replace the entire element.When you turn one of the units on high you will see a dark line under the glass running 1/2 way across the elements. Those are the thermostats... Find the defective one and the rest is pretty simple to replace

SOURCE: Only 1 of 5 burners is working on my Viking electric cooktop

By only 1 burner working, I take you mean only 1 ignites, then it sounds as though you have an issue with the spark module being defective. There is usually an access panel on the bottom of the unit, although not on all of them. Remember to disconnect from the electric.

Sadly, your etching came off the top. Only fix would be a new laser etched top. But it's expensive. Call 888-845-4641 for parts distribution depending on your location. East is Atlanta, West is LA.

Cleaning Thermador Cooktop?


To clean the stainless around the star burners try applying Easy-Off oven cleaner around the stars with a Q-tip (spray the cleaner onto the stainless surface first because it's very hard to control the spray output). The cleaner will make your stainless sparkle and the Q-tips allow you to get close enough while controlling the application. Scrub gently with the Q-tip and the stains will disappear within minutes. Wash thoroughly with a wet cloth. I've used this on my older model Thermador stainless cooktop for 5 years.
