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

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: Have a Viking range, gas top, electric oven, neither work.

Check connector block where electric is brought into stove for loose or burnt wires. Check Breaker in house power box. Push the breaker firmly to off and then return to On position. Read owner's manual to see if ignitor circuit has a fuse and check said fuse.

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: How do I access a spark ignitor on a Viking gas

Forgot to say - 1st thing I did was turn off power & gas to the range. Of course you need to ensure it is the correct one for your stove. The ignitor you remove should have a manufacturer part number on it. No calibration required on mine - a sealed electronic unit. Probably about 10 wires that need to be R&R'ed - they are on with reuseable fasteners.

One of the oven ignitors does not work


Most likely replacing the ignitor will fix it. I usually replace Viking ignitors with Maytag ones, part number 12400035 (you'll need splice wires and use included wire nuts to connect those, though). Those have a little shorter base, which does not affect anything. Replace both bake ignitors if you can, otherwise, one of the burners will ignite slower and shut off faster, resulting in uneven bake.

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?

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