Question about Viking VGSC306-4B Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

One of the oven ignitors does not work

I have a 30'' Viking Professional gas range. One of the oven ignitors doesn't work and consequently only one of the burners ignites. The broil ignitor and burner work normally. Will replacing the ignitor solve the problem or could there be something else as well?

Most likely replacing the ignitor will fix it. I usually replace Viking ignitors with Maytag ones, part number 12400035 (you'll need splice wires and use included wire nuts to connect those, though). Those have a little shorter base, which does not affect anything. Replace both bake ignitors if you can, otherwise, one of the burners will ignite slower and shut off faster, resulting in uneven bake.

Viking VGIC oven burners ignite but cycle off repeatedly temperature rarely gets to 300 after 30 minutes. If igniters ignite is problem elsewhere - like bad bi-metal valve? Range and broiler work OK,


There is a sensor that detects the oven temperature, it must be defective and sending a signal that oven is at set temperature and this shuts off the gas valve.

A weak oven ignitor will cause this problem. even though it eventually lights the temp has dropped considerably so you don't get consistent temp. turn the oven on and listen for the burner to light. should light within about 2 minutes. if not replace oven ignitor(s)

Have a Viking range, gas top, electric oven, neither work.


Check connector block where electric is brought into stove for loose or burnt wires. Check Breaker in house power box. Push the breaker firmly to off and then return to On position. Read owner's manual to see if ignitor circuit has a fuse and check said fuse.

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.

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.

Oven will not maintain temprature


This is a parts problem, I think called the burner ignitor. It is a pn oven part. We have had it in the past and are experiencing it again. We have had our stove for about 15 years, so I guess it is not too bad a problem, but not inexpensive. The oven is letting the gas be off too long between reignitions, so it does not maintain temperature. The first time we realized the probelem was with the Thanksgiving turkey (pink in the joints.)

We had to have the part replaced about 7 years ago and the part was about a $200 part plus service call. I am sure it more costly now. Hopefully you can get yours under warranty.
