When you say plug I'm assuming you mean the outlet in the wall. And you checked it for 220 volts with a meter? If all this is good then maybe you need a new ignition coil. I need more info.

If your top burners are not lighting or will not work, it is possible that the burners have become dirty or wet. Please follow the troubleshooting directions below before calling service:

  1. Turn you burner to the Lite position:

    If you hear clicking or sparking, go to Step 2.

    If you do not, check your circuit breakers. If the circuit breaker is ok, we recommend that you schedule service by calling 1-800-432-2737 or schedule service online.

  2. Clean the burner and electrode:

    First remove the burner grate, cap, and head. Use a needle or paper clip to poke through the holes on the burner head. Re-assemble and try the burner.

    Remove the burner grate, cap, and head. Even if it looks clean, wipe the tip of the electrode with a clean, dry paper towel and PRESS IT DOWN. Re-assemble and try the burner, again.

    Check to see if the burner works, If not, then go to Step 3.

  3. Re-assemble - Make sure that each burner top matches its burner bottom. The burner top will lay flat if put on correctly.

    Check to see if the burner works, If not, then go to Step 4.

  4. The spark igniter is operating properly, but the burner is still not lighting. At this point, we would recommend that you schedule service by calling 1-800-432-2737 or schedule service online.

Sounds like you might have a grounding or polarity issue with the power supply.

Viking gas stove top ignitors sparking incorrectly


all ignitors spark at the same time no matter which burner is turned on. If you are having trouble with one burner not lighting try cleaning around the ignitor with a small screw driver so the spark has a good path to ground.

Viking cooktop gas unit ignition clicks on all burners when I use


Electric gas igniters sometimes get stuck in one position causing a clicking sound. The clicking sound that you hear is the electric arc that is pulsing from the igniter conductor (wire) to ground (the gas burner). It receives power from the electrical outlet that the stove is plugged into.
Residue from food and sometimes cleaning products may be preventing the igniter from producing a spark (Arc) to the base of the burner. This is a common problem that occurs when the stove has been cleaned or food is allowed to build up. Make sure that the igniter and the burner base are clean and dry. This will help with proper operation. Oven cleaner and a small tooth brush may be used to accomplish this. Another problem with ignition may occur if you have too little (touching) or too much space between the igniter and the base of the burner; it will prevent the burner from igniting. You should only have a little more space than the thickness of a nickel between the burner base and the igniter. A good “blue” arc from the igniter to the burner base is optimal. If this doesn’t work, you may need to replace the electric igniter module. Good luck.

Top burners on our Viking work fine, however the


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.

Viking stove top gas burners


I have a VGR36 6 burner. All the spark ignitors stopped clicking after a major boilover spill. Liquid got into the spark module compartment and caused a short. The paper wiring diagram under the spark module protective cover was burned from the short. I had a Harper 6542 non-reignition spark module but the replacement part is now a Tytronics PA020041 Spark Module. I bought kit #000511-000 from allvikingparts.com which includes the module, a black jumper wire, a green ground wire and an instruction sheet.

It's not difficult to replace the spark module but the 2 screws holding down the module toward the back of the stove are not visable and accessible. I used a thumbwheel rachet with a long philips screw driver bit (for cordless drills) to remove and replace the screws. The wiring was simple. The 2 power wires need to be wired to the correct polarity on the module, but the remaining 4 ignition wires can be wired to any of the 4 terminals on the new module. All the wires have plug in connectors and no cutting and splicing is necessary, but I had to cut and splice because one wire shorted and the insulation was burned from the major spill on my stove.
