Question about Viking VGIC305-4B Gas Kitchen Range

Viking with CRAZY Ignitor

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?
Thanks
TR

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!

SOURCE: Viking model VGR48 stovetop burners will not ignite?

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

  • Remove all the burner control knobs, grates, burner caps & trim rings.
  • Remove the 2 screws securing the manifold panel, one from each corner. The panel will drop down.
  • Remove the screws from each manifold pipe mounting bracket. Remove 1/4 inch hex head bolt from the center of the manifold pipe. Push supply tube back to release from manifold pipe. Lift the cooktop assembly at the front to clear the 1/2 inch locator pins attached to the top of the bodyside.
  • Place cardboard between each side of cooktop & bodyside to prevent damage.
  • Move the cooktop to one side, being careful not to put stress on the wiring harness on left side.
  • Remove the wire from the electrode.
  • Remove the screw from the electrode mounting bracket to release the electrode.
You can replace the electrode & reassemble following instructions in reverse order.

SOURCE: burner ignitor will not turn off after the burner lights Viking

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.

SOURCE: Viking dual-fuel range ignition problem

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.

SOURCE: How to install ignitors on Viking Range

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

Viking 30" Range - Igniter works - but NO FLAME in oven or ranges


No pilot light need to be ignited. You may need a new ignitor. It might not be catching. If you pull the bottom oven plate off you can see the ignitor on the side of the burner and see if it is in its place or broken or just plain old. It is a simple fix. You can buy a universal ignitor or contact Viking and they will sell it to you. Its only two wires and can do it yourself if you are somewhat technical. Good luck.

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?

Clicking noise on cooktop even when all burners ignite


I have a viking gas cooktop. The ignitor on one of my front burners wouldn't stop clicking even after the flame ignited. I swapped that ignitor with the ignitor from a back burner, expecting that the problem was with the ignitor and that the back burner would start to click incessantly, but at least I'd have my favorite front burner for use. Instead, the front burner was then only clicking 50% of the time and the back burner was fine, suggesting the problem was related to the burner not the ignitor. I pulled the front ignitor a bit away from the burner and now it is working normally. Hope this helps.

Juliac, the burner valve switch for that burner is either shorted or grounding out. Each burner control has a valve switch that controls the power to the igniter. Sometimes they just get full of gunk and short. Part number is PA020015. Catriver...post back.
