Viking professional Range Thermostat problem

I have a Viking Professional 36" range/oven. It is five years old. The thermostat never has been very accurate. However, lately the temp has been all over the place. First too high and then too low. Is this a thermostat problem? If so, where can I find a service manual that explains how to replace it?

Our Viking Professional 36 in. range has a plastic smell when we turn on the oven, and there is a strange sound of poofing, or bellowing (like trying to ignite, but it's already been on). Any ideas?


Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

stop using and call a service company, you have a gas ignition problem

Replacing PB010036 Bake / Broil Thermostat Viking


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.

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.

It takes too long for the oven to reach the desired temperature.


Here are two instances of when food "bakes poorly:"

  • When the item takes far too long to finish, you probably have a weak bake igniter. Often, you need to replace the igniter, but you may want to troubleshoot the oven's electrical system further to more precisely locate the defect.

  • When the temperature is consistent but too high or too low, the oven thermostat or sensor is either mis-calibrated or defective. If your oven uses an electronic temperature-regulating device, you may have an electric sensor in the oven instead of a mechanical thermostat. If the oven temperature is off by 30 to 40 degrees in this type of unit, you must replace the sensor.

    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.

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.
