    Replace viking 12,000 btu valve with a 8,000 btu valve


    Safety factors first, gas comes out of the tube the burner valve is mounted on, so double check all connections first. (Use liquid soap to test) With that being said, although Viking does produce this part anymore, the body of the valve would be the same in turning and interior function. I had to rebuild a valve in the past and still works to this day. So this decision is all yours to make, as a certified service tech and if this was in my home yes I would, but I could not do this for a customer.

    I hope this helps

    Adjust flame

    Do not attempt to do this task yourself, you should call a Gas Safe engineer to solve the problem.

    One of the four burners does not work. The light comes on but no heat. Can it be repaired?

    Yes, you have a bad burner, sensor, burner switch, or wiring problem. The most likely is the burner switch. You should get this repaired asap, as this could be shorting out inside, and cause an electrical shock hazard. Unlikely but enough of a possibility that you should fix it soon.

    GE profile performance electric cook top is not producing enough heat in the front burners.

    Confirm there is 240 VAC powering the unit (make sure a breaker has not tripped or a fuse blown.).

    Did the burners ever produce enough heat?

    If yes, then we can look deeper. If no, then the burners may not be adequate for your cooking style. Burners are like light bulbs. A 60 watt bulb will put out more light than a 40 watt bulb. A 100 watt bulb will put out more light than a 60.
    Typically, a small burner will provide less cooking heat than a large burner.

    Burners on JP326 electric not heating

    Sounds like breaker tripped so no 220 to unit. Reset breaker. The burner switch you first turned on probably blew out and needs replacing, so don't turn it on again. If all else works ok, then that is it. Unless you are handy you may want to call the repair man.

    Sounds like you have cartridge fuses in your house. When only one is blown it can cause interesting results. The clock is probably feeding back through the burner. This lets enough electricity through to run the clock and othe small things but not enough for heat. Have all the cartridge in your house tested. I'll bet either one of the mains or range ones are bad.

    The problem is the pot(s) is too far from the heat. Jenn-air needs to make a burner cover that is closer to the burner for boiling water...
