    it is a 48 inch viking downdraft fitted behind a 6 burner gas desktop

  • pbousum Mar 08, 2008

    the vent is independent from the range. when you turn it one it raises out of the counter and drafts at the selected strength. It now does nothing when you press the on button.

    Most likely it is a problem with the fan motor. It suppose to come to have a shorted lines to your range and looks like one of them is missing. The best option is service it to a repairman to check both the oven and the powerto the ventillations...post back

    an electrical shortage on the unit, check it with an electrician to check and repair any cut or burn wires that cause for not starting the unit due to not having electrical supply on it.

Hey there

kindly check the chimney assembly if there are anything stuck there. if not, check also the connection of the wiring if it is correctly plugged to the assigned voltage.

if i may ask, what exact type of ventilator are you using? because there are already designer types on the market today...

    could it possibly the switch itself is faulty? have tried opening the switch housing to determine if there is something wrong with the switch itself.

How do you access the ignitor wires for the


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