That code indicates a problem with the oven door Lock Assembly. If nothing can be found wrong with the door lock, then the electronic oven control would need to be replaced.

How do I access a spark ignitor on a Viking gas

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 a 'tech' that it would be located at the back of my stove (ie he would have to pull out the built in unit and would 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. 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.

F1 on the read out comes up and the oven well knot work it keeps comeing up f1 on read out it is a maytag rang mer5770aab

Hi martysherrip,

The F1 fault code description is a defective touch pad or clock (ERC). Please refer to the steps below for additional information.

1. Unplug the range power cord or turn the power off to the range at the circuit breaker. It is very important that the power to the range has been disconnected, so please double check before continuing.

2. Gain access inside the control panel.

3. Disconnect the touch pad (also called keypad or membrane switch) ribbon from the ERC.

4. Make sure there are no lose wires, or anything else that may cause a short when power is turned back on. Assemble the control panel back the way it was.

5. Turn the power back on.

6. Wait for at least one hour to see if the F1 code comes back.

7. Please replace the ERC, if F1 comes back. If it does not, replace the touch pad.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Replacing smooth top

Have you purchased a new top yet? If you haven't, you can find it at for about $270.00 (item #703866). Just type in your model number in the search index and you will find a pictorial part index for your range. The part isn't cheap, but it would potentially cost you twice as much to have a repair service replace it for you. If you still wish to pursue this repair, follow these simple instructions:

1. First of all, UNPLUG the range before servicing. There are dangerous voltages still present even with burners turned off.
2. Secondly, is the glass top still intact? I know it is broken, but is the glass completely busted apart, or is the top just cracked? If it busted, you will need to get rid of a much of the glass shards as you can and thoroughly vacuum the area around the oven box. Use extreme care when handling broken glass. Wear safety glasses and gloves.
3. There are a few screws located under the front edge of the cooktop. You will need to open the oven door to see them. Remove these screws and the top should lift up. If the range is not equipped with any kind of hinge supports, the top will have to be propped up.
4. On some ranges, there is a disconnect plug for the surface element wiring harness. If you have this feature, unplug the cooktop and leave the elements in place. Place the whole assembly face down on a soft surface (like some old towels, or a blanket) and remove the surface element assembly leaving all the elements wired together. Place the new cooktop face down in the same manner and lay the surface element with wiring harness directly on to it and screw in place. Install the new cooktop back on the range and you are DONE.
5. If the wiring harness does NOT unplug, there are a series of screws holding the element assemblies in place. Leave these assemblies wired together for ease of replacing. It is recommended that a second person holds the assemblies in place to support the wires until all the screws have been removed.
5. Lay the intact element assembly, with wires still connected, on top of the oven box handling the elements with care. they are very fragile. Care also must be taken not to handle the element coils or ceramic material. Try to handle from the underside of the element only. Oil from your hands can cause damage to the element and/or premature failure. If you have to remove the elements, individually, make sure you write down how the wires were connected to ensure you reconnect them in the right order. Make sure you also take note of the numbering scheme on the element and make sure you place the mounting brackets in the same holes that they came out of.
7. Use care when screwing into the new cooktop. CAUTION: The scew holes are usually painted and a little force may be required to thread the screws. Do not apply too much pressure on the glass, or you can damage it. Prop the new cook top in place and install the surface element assembly from underneath. A helpful hint: Use some duct tape to hold the assembly until you have screwed it back into place. Don't forget to remove the duct tape when completed.

Good luck and I hope this helps.

One of my burners is out, and I do not know how to get under the cooktop

You can check the element from the switch on the control panel. Unplug the oven, remove the back and put an ohm meter on r1 and r2 terminals to check resistance. If it shows open then the element is bad. If it shows resistance then replace the switch. To remove the top there should be screws under the front part of the top which you can see when you lower the door then just lift up. You won't be removing just the glass.
