Hi,

This is a sticking ignition button, or one of the microswitches linked to the control knob is stuck, this can be due to not being used for a while.

I hope this helps

Steve :o)

Viking range burners won't light


from I review I found it might be this...Simple replacement of Glow Bar igniter requires removal of entire front panel with many screws
so sounds like your igniter might be shot - it heats up to ignite the burners - easy fix - get a long torch lighter and just light the gas after turning it on -

Viking range burners not getting gas


Each burner has to have verification of ignition from the spark ignitor. If all burners will not light I would say it must be the control. Here is your Viking stove manual

Oven in my viking range takes over 1 hour to heat to 350 degrees after another hour it is up to 385. degrees This is an ongoing problem the range is about 10 years old


Sounds like your ceramic ignitors have worn out - apparently they are to be replaced every 3-5 years - so if you've gone 10 this could be your issue (it was mine). I have two in the larger oven & 1in the smaller one. Easy to replace (60$/each) - two wire and one screw each. 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 **** on the burner that had filled in (width 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.

Viking 6 burner range that keeps clicking after ignition


Spark ignition sparks until the flame starts. The flame ionizes the air between the igniter plug and the burner causing the small current to flow between the igniter and the burner. This shuts off sparking. But if there is a gap such as in the spark igniter under the porcelain, technically there still is a gap that the current has to jump and thus the stove keeps sparking. In my case changing the offending igniter plug fixed the problem.

Viking range burners won't light


All of these ranges have a spark module at each burner sight and they all click when ever you attempt to light one burner. Therefore, it can not be assummed that the spark module for those nonworking burners are actually clicking. Remove the burner covers and actually look for the sparks. If there is no spark make sure the connections are nice and tight. IF they are, you most likely need to replace the spark module.

Ignitor won't shut off


The Viking manual says that an ignitor that continues to try to light even after the burner has been lit indicates improper grounding, and that an electrician should be consulted.

Perhaps you could try to replace the ignitor, and see if that fixes the problem?

I have a similar age, 6-burner 36" rangetop.

The clicking is the electrode arcing. when the burner lights, a sensor tells the electrode to stop sparking after is heats up a little, that's why is clicks a little after the burner lights, but then stops. If the spark keeps going, the sensor is not registering the flame. The ones that do not click could be the ignite coil, the wire, or the electrode.
