My Viking oven will not lite, the igniter glows, but it will not lite. I have to turn on the 4 stove top burners and then it will lite. Also, when the oven reaches temperature and the therastat shuts it...


Hi,
That sounds like you have too high of gas pressure which keeps the oven gas valve from opening...turning on the burners lowers the gas pressure enough to allow the gas valve to open. this is a saftey feature on many gas valves.
To stop that you will need to install a gas pressure regulator which will hold back the gas pressure so the valve can open.

Here is a tip that I wrote about regulators and them failing on the low side, but it will give you and idea what I am talking about and what you need to install in the line to your range.

Have a viking professional oven and it takes too


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)

Slow and uneven ignition on the oven burners that causes the oven to take hours to preheat


MOST OF THE TIME THIS IS CAUSED BY A WEAK IGNITOR.WHEN THE IGNITOR IS WEAK IT WONT PULL ENOUGH CURRENT THROUGH THE GAS VALVE TO OPEN IT UP.SOMETIMES IT WILL OPEN ONLY PARTWAY .GOOD LUCK!

Hi, There is a good chance the ignitor is bad. Even if it glows, it could be weak enough that it will not open the gas valve. It is very a common problem with the gas stoves.
I would change the ignitor.
