Question about Viking VWH3048 Kitchen Hood

Viking 10 inch hood lights out

We have a viking range hood, similar to the VWH3048, the difference is ours has the 1200 blower. The other day, both of our lights went out. We thought it was strange that they went out at the same time, but we went ahead and changed the lights. To our dismay, the new lights didn't come on. Is this something that we can fix ourselves? Any ideas on what happened, my husband thinks that it is either a short or the sockets burned out. Any advice would be appreciated.

    Sorry my model is actually VWH3610SS no heat lamps just two lights. Both went out at the same time with a flash but only one bulb seems burnt out I did replace both now none come on.

Part PE050033 no longer exists. It's now two parts: PE050141 for the light and PE050156 for the fan. You must first remove all of the small switches then pull off the front panel to tighten the small nuts that hold the new units in place.

SOURCE: Viking 10 inch hood lights out

I'm just an average do-it-yourselfer....this was more intimidating than it really is. Go to as long as you know what model number you have the guys there will make sure you get the right part.
1) Throw the breaker to the circuit the lights are on2) Remove the grease traps and trim from the front section of the hood3) Remove the 3 sheet metal screws slowly from the hood....the hood will fold forwards about 6-8 inches...don't go too far4) Disconnect the existing dimmer...I found it was easier to work with by disconnecting the red wire first, then carefully push the on/off switch from behind to disconnect the black wire. Remove the dial and carefully unscrew the nut holding it in place....remove defective unit.5) Snake the black wire through where the on/off switch goes and connect it (they don't give you alot of play in the wiring so be careful. Attach red wire. Test it to make sure it works. Place the toggle back through the whole and carefully screw it back in. Replace the dial.6) Fold back into place and screw 3 sheet metal screws back in....7)Put grease traps and trim back together....
8)Brag to your buddies what a great handyman you are....and your wife too!

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 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.

Ignitor won't shut off

The Viking manual says that an ignitor that continues to try to light even after the burner has been lit indicates improper grounding, and that an electrician should be consulted.

Perhaps you could try to replace the ignitor, and see if that fixes the problem?

I have a similar age, 6-burner 36" rangetop.

The clicking is the electrode arcing. when the burner lights, a sensor tells the electrode to stop sparking after is heats up a little, that's why is clicks a little after the burner lights, but then stops. If the spark keeps going, the sensor is not registering the flame. The ones that do not click could be the ignite coil, the wire, or the electrode.
