Built into the burner is a small passage to allow the gas to reach the spark gap.
Take off the cast ring and inspect it for blockage.

Viking gas oven model # VGIC3656BSS, serial #022404-2919 takes FOREVER to preheat up. Sometimes in excess of 40 minutes. Been a problem for a while. Looks like flames at bottom do not increase when oven...


When increasing the temp. on a gas range the oven's burners do not increase flame size as the cooktop burners do. It just keeps the burner lighted for a longer amount of time.

First if you can see the burners do they light within about a min. or less. If no you probably have bad igniters which are not lighting the burners as quickly as they should or they are "opening up" (stops working) when they get too hot. In this case replacement of the igniters should solve the problem.

Second if it lights quickly but still takes a while to heat; you want to look at the burners to ensure that the flames are down both sides of the burner tube and not dancing around too much. If only part of the two sides of the burner tubes are lighted then a pluged orifice or burner tube is the most likely cause. Once cleaned it should work fine.

As with anything mechanical there are numurous possiblities for something not working correctly and above are the two most popular reasons that come to my mind.

Your second ignitor needs replacement. If you can measure the current to the ignitor, it should be at least 3A. I usually replace this kind of ignitors with a Maytag ignitor, which is slightly shorter. The original one, part number is PB040001 has been discontinued.
Maytag ignitor part number is 12400035

Had no gas coming into the oven of my Viking 305. bought a new dual thermal valve and replaced it. now i have small flame on left burner and none on right. right after installation, flame was strong for...


Are the burners on top getting enough gas? Is there enough gas coming out of the wall? Did you purchase the correct dual valve? Is the orifice sizing correct? Make sure the holes are not plugged on the burners. And u should also check to see if your line has debris in it. Either unplug the holes or check the pressure out of the line in the wall. What makes you think the right one isn't getting enough gas? Could it be an ignitor? Anyways, the burners have a 5 yr warranty. Try replacing those. Good luck.

Viking 30" Range - Igniter works - but NO FLAME in oven or ranges


No pilot light need to be ignited. You may need a new ignitor. It might not be catching. If you pull the bottom oven plate off you can see the ignitor on the side of the burner and see if it is in its place or broken or just plain old. It is a simple fix. You can buy a universal ignitor or contact Viking and they will sell it to you. Its only two wires and can do it yourself if you are somewhat technical. Good luck.

Oven Burners not lighting completely


It's the igniters. They increase in resistance as the elements age and decreases the current required to heat the spring element in the gas valve.

Replace both igniters.

Burner ignitor will not turn off after the burner lights Viking


replace the electrode that's the wire or pilot tip, it has a sensor built in, when it gets hot it stops automatically. if the electrode is between the front and rear burners, there are small holes on the burners going down on the side of the burner facing the ignition. they need to be clean. try a paper clip and insert the clip in side the holes.

Viking range top 2 burners won't light


Either the igniters are at fault (which is usually the case when one or two are not working) or the entire oven ignition system needs to be replaced and can be done through Viking themselves whether you want them to replace it or you yourself replace it, you can get the part through them.
