    Let me be more clear on my problem #2 mentioned above. I only smell gas on #1 burner(#1 is not in use) when I turned on #3 burner. This makes no sense to me. I thought they all burners are common headed and they have seperate valve to each burner. Please advise

Burner 1 is the tap assembley reqs., greasing with graphite grease.
ignition depending on model this is correct.

    each burner is fed from a main rail hence seperate tap handles, i presume that burner 1 is the one that you have used the most,it is only a small job to repair .

Viking Designer Series gas cooktop not cleaning well

I'm sorry to say that there is not a wonder solution for this. You try laying a damp cloth on the aluminum part to try and allow the moisture to soak in the clean it off.
Don't use anything abrasive as the aluminum will scratch.

Only 1 of 5 burners is working on my Viking electric cooktop

By only 1 burner working, I take you mean only 1 ignites, then it sounds as though you have an issue with the spark module being defective. There is usually an access panel on the bottom of the unit, although not on all of them. Remember to disconnect from the electric.

Viking professional 30 inch, sparking problem

If you have replaced the spark module with the new, blue PA020041 Tytronics 0+4 spark module, the physical positions of the leads that go to the burner igniters are reversed compared to the positions on the old, white module. Make sure that the switch wire for the burner and the position of the spark wire both go to the same burner! The positions are marked on the white label with green lettering.
