Fan stays on long after oven is shut off in brand new viking daul fuel range. It's been on now for 45 minutes. All controls are on OFF.

loads of ovens do this. It's a pain, especially if you eat in the kitchen. If you switch the appliance off and on at the wall it usually stops it. Why the fan stays on, god knows. pointless.

I have a Viking VGSC366 6B all gas range. The oven keeps shutting off when I'm baking somethimes for a long time. Sometimes i can turn it off and back on again but sometimes it won't come right back on....

When the oven igniter(s) get too old, they don't pass enough current to the gas valve to either open it or keep it open. If that's the case, they need replacement. They may still glow but they're no longer operating properly

Viking oven not heating past 150 degrees

My viking oven had same issue - I needed to replace the ceramic ignitors (if ignitors fail to heat up properly the gas valve remains partially closed). Apparently they are intended to be replaced every 3-5 years. Also inspect and clean the oven burners - mine had corroded somewhat and prevented the flame from 'moving' to the opposite side - ie only half the burner was lighting. If you are handy the ignitors are very easy to replace - one screw, two wires each.

I have a viking VGIC365-6bss I pre-heated oven to 500 degrees and now the oven door will not open.

One of the door hinges was loose. You have to lift the door by the handle to open it.

Viking range self cleaning not working - door locked

This is a more common problem than revealed by Viking.
Heres how I an "amature" fixed it.
Top center of many viking ovens have slots. With a small flashlight look into the center slots. "Its HARD to see" Look for something
shiney thats the latch/hook everything else will be dark.
I used a shish ka bab skwer. You need something like that or maybe an ice pick. Knives screwdrivers and things like that will
damage the face of the oven and then after opeining it you will forever feel bad about marring that very expensive unit.
Take the pick and with the flashlight guide it to the shiney part.
Once touching push to the LEFT. Keep trying as the pick will slip
many times. The latch should have no resistance if you can get on it.
Once open you can try and reset the hook to its open position.
Mine would not reset and prevented the door from closing.
This is now another fix. To keep the hook held to the open position. E mail me for how I jury rigged this part.
I have the hook held open now and will never be able to use the self clean function again. But thats better for me than a open wallet fix for the repair man and then wonder when it will happen again. To repeat. This is a known problem with Viking ovens.

VGSC3054 oven door won't open

After frantically calling Viking hdqtrs and several repair shops for their advice and experience, it turned out that after my husband fiddled further with it, something got unstuck and it miraculously opened all the way again. Don't think we'll ever know what caused it in the first place , but it works now.

The door can be removed from the hinge assembly by lifting upwards and outwards while the door is only slightly open - no hardware needs to be removed to get the door off. My door VGIC366 hinges did the same thing a few years ago, and simply cleaning them fixed the problem entirely.

Oven door hinge adjustment...?

Regarding the oven door not closing all the way and dropping suddernly to the floor, I called a local authorized service company and asked if there was a door spring (no). So the recommended solution is to have the hinges replaced. However, since the oven door didn't really hold its open position from the beginning, when it was brand new back in 01, I'm going to see if a new Viking oven has the same defect as ours. Then, it would seem like a good idea to take a chance on having it repaired.

Is replacing a set of oven door hinges something a person with reasonable mechanical aptitude can do?
