Question about Viking Kitchen Ranges
Probably not. As the ignitors (Viking part no. PB040001) age, their resistance increases to the point where they don't pull enough current to hold the valve open. This is true even though the ignitors are still glowing brightly. According to someone who probably knows, they are considered a "maintenance item" that needs to be replaced "every few years."
About $45 each at The Gene Schick Co. (510)429-8200. Replace both of them (assuming a 30" oven, 3 if wider) at the same time, or you'll be doing this job again in a few days/weeks/months.
