No clicking noise when I try to light any burner


Hi,

Check power to cooktop first to assure it is not the issue. If not the issue, the spark module is the cause of all the burners not working. If only one burners its a burner switch, if more than one burner its the module that needed replaced.

I hope this helps.

Two of the 6 knobs on my gas cooktop are stuck and will not depress or turn.


Pull the knobs off
Spray some WD40 or release oil on the shafts , wrap a piece of tissue around them first to alow the stuff to soak in

Give it a couple of houts then get a pair of pliers and gently lift them up and down until the come free

If need be apply some more WD40 as you do that

Viking gas cooktop vgsu161-6b sparks continuously. There is no gas leaking. I spilled water on the controls and it is only when I turn on the 3rd knob from the top that this happens.


The water that you spilled onto the cooktop has shorted out the ignition switch in the gas control knob. Don't worry though no permanent damage has been done. Leave it unplugged from the electrical outlet for a day or two until the liquid dries out. You can manually light the burners with matches or a BBQ lighter in the meantime. If you want to try and speed up the drying process you can use a hair dryer.

Same thing, can't figure out how to get it apart.


Viking has a "special" (ha,ha) tool that you put across those 2 notches in the center brass ring. You can find this wrench with pics at: allvikingparts.com/BT_SBW_Sealed_Burner_Wrench_s/138.htm
You probably have thrown out many similar looking 'free' wrenches(because we have better ones in our toolbox) that are packaged with kids toys etc. that should do the job.
A hand held steamer has done a pretty good job for me in cleaning the burned on gunk. I have also used my dremel with various different polishing tips when I have been really frustrated with gunk and discoloration.

Viking range - no way to simmer


There is a conversion kit to convert the range from natural gas to propane, it is possible that it was not installed or not installed at the time of purchase. There is a part in the regulator that has to be switched from one gas type to another as well as individual burner orafices that have to be changed. You should have the point of purchase service verify that this has been done correctly. The complete information should be in your owners and installation manual or available directly from the viking website.
