Question about Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

My 48-inch Viking gas range is making a high-pitched, continuous, whining noise (not a beeping). It has never done this before.

    Just bought a new Frigidaire range. It also whines when the stove top is used, and depends on how high we turn up the burners. I don't know what to do to fix this!

One thing that you can check is make sure that you have 220 volts at the plug. Leave the unit unplugged and check continuity on the burners. You should have continuity on the burners.

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.

Where can I locate the model number on my viking range? (48")


Mine was located to the left of the top burners. Remove the grates covering the burners, remove the 'spill' pans, lift up the surface that held the spill pans and then on the LHS you should see a plate with your units details.

Igniter keeps clicking, intermittent


There should be a little switch that slips over the stem of each burner control. Very common.

Need to replace griddle thermostat


My husband and I just had to check out our griddle on our 48 inch Viking rangetop. You remove the grates and the grate holders on either side of the griddle..it just pops out. Then you raise your griddle up about 4" to remove your thermastats., noting the position they are in so when you replace you can put back correctly. After pulling the thermastats out, then you lift the griddle out. Griddle is extremely heavy so be prepared to have close surface to lay it. Hope this helps.

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.
