Viking Dual Fuel 6 Burner 48" OVEN DOES NOT HEAT

The oven is not heating, which is strange and more than coincidental in that it occured the day after Thanksgiving when all worked well. So, I'm wondering if it needs reset, or something happened after my wife cleaned it. Power is fine, temp control light comes on, fan works for convection, but the light adjacent to the oven function (broil, bake, etc) knob does not light. Oven does not work in broil or bake mode. Sure don't want to spend $200. if it is a small problem I can cure myself.

Re: Viking Dual Fuel 6 Burner 48" OVEN DOES NOT HEAT

I hate self clean functions - If you think about it - you should too. These ranges are equipped with electronic components and running self clean at 950 degrees will more than likely burn something out. A lot of complaints are because of the self clean. It's not worth it to self clean than to clean it yourself. And 200 dollars is a great price for something like this if it includes parts and labor. Good luck.

If there is power to the unit (lights turn on) I would check the fuses and switches especially the one for door lock mechanism if you noticed a glitch. But a lot of times if you experiences problems after running a self-cleaning function, including locked door issue, the solution could be as simple as resetting a switch and no actual replacement parts needed. It all depends. If you are in Los Angeles, we could send a Viking repairman the same day you call us. : Viking Appliance Repair

the glass in the ovens should not crack when self clean is used. it could be that there was a minut crack in the glass or a build up of moisture in between to door windows that expanded at the extra heat but this should be brought up with the manufacturer for replacement.

I hope this was useful.

Viking model vdsc4874gss small oven works fine large oven element on bottom only gets hot in cleaniong mode, fan comes on when dial is turned to convection but no heat power is on light works

One thing that you can check is make sure that you have 220 volts at the plug. Leave the unit unplugged and check continuity on the burners. You should have continuity on the burners.

Viking oven not heating past 150 degrees

My viking oven had same issue - I needed to replace the ceramic ignitors (if ignitors fail to heat up properly the gas valve remains partially closed). Apparently they are intended to be replaced every 3-5 years. Also inspect and clean the oven burners - mine had corroded somewhat and prevented the flame from 'moving' to the opposite side - ie only half the burner was lighting. If you are handy the ignitors are very easy to replace - one screw, two wires each.

Oven will not work

It sounds like the Thermostat is defective.

Element can be removed from the front of the unit, it does not need to be pulled
