Question about Viking VGIC365-6B Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Turned on oven to 400. When opened door no heat. Checked that I had turned the right knob and saw the oven light doesn't come on either. Ugh!! I need my oven. All six burners work but need to be lit with a match. The self ignite works sporadically.

Hi,

Just because it glows that does not mean it is not bad...
The ignitor is not working right and is going bad....
have the repair man replace the ignitor, or DIY....

    I think he is wrong. The ignitor going bad shouldn't affect the ignitors on the stovetop and definitely shouldn't put the light out

    I googled this because I have exactly the same problem. Oven electrical shuts down when I use the stove and then a day later it's fine again.

    I also noticed that my oven door gasket is damaged and there is a lot of heat and moisture escaping from the oven when it gets up to temperature. So my guess is that the moisture escaping is wetting the circuit board and shutting all the electrics down. Then when it's dried out the next day, it works fine again.

Jenn-Air stove locked


After the lock indicator light goes out, move the door lock lever to the left. The oven door can now be opened. Turn the selector and temperature knobs from clean to off AFTER THE DOOR IS UNLOCKED. If the temperature knob is turned to off BEFORE the door is unlocked, the door will not open. Forcing the lock will damage the lock mechanism. If this should happen, return the temperature knob back to CLEAN, unlock the door, THEN turn the temperature knob off.

Jenn Air oven door won't open after clean cycle


Had this EXACT same problem the day before a party where I needed the oven for lots of baking.... Tried all sorts of things, was about to call a repair man- I FINALLY got it to open by following the first two directions for putting it into self clean mode (turned both knobs to CLEAN), then when it said to lock door I tried to move the lock lever and bam it worked! Give it a shot! Good luck! (:

Older model - belling 356 double oven - unable to get grill to work


The microswitch on the right of the top oven is stuck in. Open the top oven door and you can see the switch on the right. It has a small black rubber cap on it. To solve this, loosen the right top and bottom screws of the brown panel and lever the white panel slightly to the right. Tighen the screws and the switch should go in and out as you push and release it. The grill will now come on when the door is open.

Oven door won't unlock


I fixed the automatic oven door lock on my oven. While the door was open, I pushed the button on the upper left hand side a couple of times (the one that senses when the door is closed.) Then I was going to call the repairman when the door closed! I had to run the self clean cycle again to get the lock light to go off, but it worked!

Self clean light blinks, oven does not work


You were right. The locking mechanism switch somehow became jammed and the oven thought the door was locked, even though I could open the door. I didn't know if I was supposed to take the top off and moving the lever back and forth did not help. Finally I turned the oven on and just kind of jiggled the latch in the unlocked position. I kind of moved it back and forth furiously and the cleaning light stopped blinking and the oven light came on. I'm glad it is working now, but I will be manually cleaning my oven from now on! Thanks for your help.
