Question about Viking VGIC305-4B Gas Kitchen Range
Guess I should Post here... Hey Experts
We have a fairly new Viking 4 burner gas range up at the cabin.
Works fine except...
Each burner has its own ignitor and they all ignite independently.
Problem is the left front one ignites them all for some reason and then keeps trying to ignite them all even after the left front has lit.
We are very remote so to get a reapair person that knows anything about viking would cost me 7 hours travel time each way. 14 X $80... you get the drift.
Any idea what might be wrong?
Hi there, I am attaching your manual in case it helps you.
On page 53, in the troubleshooting chart, the ninth item down seems to suggest similar 'problems' - including possible 'cause / remedy' to the right in same chart.
The manual includes the manufacturers contact info on page 1 of this pdf (the back page of the manual itself.).
Or, the manual LINK is here:
(and attached as noted above). Good luck to you!
(Hope this helps - please click below if so, thanks!)

First shut off the gas supply & disconnect electrical power to the range.

replace the electrode that's the wire or pilot tip, it has a sensor built in, when it gets hot it stops automatically. if the electrode is between the front and rear burners, there are small holes on the burners going down on the side of the burner facing the ignition. they need to be clean. try a paper clip and insert the clip in side the holes.

You may have wet it somehow. There are two fixes. Leave them on for 20 minutes on high to let the ignitors dry out. If they dry and stop clicking you have solved it. If not then contact Viking 888-845-4641 and purchase a 6 point spark module. You can try to replace this yourself. With the power OFF. Remove the wires one by one placing them on the new module and then attaching it to the wall. (this is if ur spark module is located under the burners.) If it is in the rear of the unit and u can pull out your range yourself without hurting yourself then you do the same thing. Good luck. If none helps you you may need to replace all 6 burner bases or ignotrs. Also easy. Good luck.

I am assuming your referring to the stove top burner ignitor. Well - I can only say on my Viking 48 inch - it was located at top RHS of the stove on the 'back wall'. I was advised by an 'come to my home tech' that it would be located at the back of my stove (ie he would have to pull out the built in unit and cost me 500$). In fact I replaced the unit in 30 minutes ... I removed the two RHS burners (one screw each), disconnected ignitor wires, removed the bracket holding the burners (one screw), followed ignitor wires to silver box covering the ignitor unit (2 screws), opened it & replaced ignitor. Forgot to say - 1st thing I did was turn off power & gas to the range
