Check to ensure the gas supply is on. Next, check to ensure there are no gas valves in line with the unit that have been turned off.

After this has been completed, turn off the gas supply and loosen the gas line coming into the grill, turn the gas back on, and check to see if you have gas coming out the spot you have loosened up. There is a chance the regulator has gone bad and has closed off allowing no gas to flow.

If you still have no gas, you will need a new regulator. In most cases, the regulator is part of the supply gas hose and will require replacement of the entire assembly vs. just a replacement regulator.

    It's a built in grill. How do I loosen the gas pipe and is there any danger if the gas escapes.

  • Bill Jul 13, 2010

    Make sure you shut off the gas supply. The end of the gas line should spin freely to allow it to be threaded.

    If not, there may be a gas union installed. Simply loosen the gas union and the gas line should separate.

Side burner lights but not main burner on gas grill


If you smell gas, don't attempt to light the burner. Instead, turn the gas off and inspect the fuel tank, lines and burners once the smell of has has cleared. Always grill where you have adequate ventilation and perform all repairs only after the grill has fully cooled from use.

What you have described sounds like a clogged burner as well as the venturi valve on the burner. Your will need to remove the burner to clean it and the venturi valve on the open end of the burner, that goes over the burner orifice. Spiders like to build nest in them and clog them up. The venturi valve will look like two slots, cut in to each side of the burner, at the open end. It's function is to mix air with the gas, for proper combustion.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know and Happy Grilling!!

That is correct. Viking no longer supports the Cast Iron Burners. There is an aftermarket Burner VIKU1 that comes with mounting brackets to convert older Viking Grills that used a Cast Iron Burner to be able to switch to the stainless steel burner. The large bracket attaches to the center tube and has two screw holes and screws for mounting to the rear of the housing. The two smaller brackets mount to the two holes at the rear wall of the housing and create a ledge for the end of the two tubes to rest on.

Hello,
You may have turned the gas tank valve on too fast. Turn it back off, disconnect it and reconnect it. Then very slowly turn the valve back on. Light one burner at a time and turn to low before lighting the next. If you are hearing and smelling gas with the tank on but all grill knobs off, don't use the grill. You may have a leaking grill valve, regulator or hose. If you are only smelling gas with the knobs on, it's possible you have a clogged burner or orifice from bug nests, spiderwebs, etc and need to clean it out first. Hope this helps. Douglas

Viking grill burner is clogged and fire is shooting out of knob. How do I clean my grill from excessive grease.


Is it still under warranty? I'd call Viking or a qualified repairman to fix it. If your burners are clogged, the flames should be coming out the venturi tube and flaming towards the gas valve knob. If the flames are coming out of the gas valve itself, then it will need to be regreased. If the burners can be removed without too much trouble, soak them in the sink with hot water and dishwashing detergent. Be sure to remove the knobs, so no one turns the gas on without the burners connected. If it's difficult, call a repairman.

Look for spider webs in the venturi tubes, check the orfices or it could be faulty controls. Verify the tank working properly by trying on another grill.

Occasional gas smell


If you have a burner lit and gas build up, strong smell etc., my advice would be to stop using the oven immediately! You no way gas should come out, build up, to the point you smell it, Especially while a burner is lit. Dangerous condition.

Viking range burners won't light


All of these ranges have a spark module at each burner sight and they all click when ever you attempt to light one burner. Therefore, it can not be assummed that the spark module for those nonworking burners are actually clicking. Remove the burner covers and actually look for the sparks. If there is no spark make sure the connections are nice and tight. IF they are, you most likely need to replace the spark module.
