The ignition module has a feature where if there is no flame it will continue try it re-ignite by sparking. If there is flame then it will shut off. Try using a mild abrasive cloth or sand paper to gently clean the contact points between the igniters and burners, A green scratch pad (scotch-brite)works great for this.

If the metal is clean and the problem still persists please have a tech verify the problem as you may need a new ignition module.

I have just replaced all the ignitors and the spark control module on the cook top burners. Prior to this the back burners would cause ignition spark continually when lit. the front 2 burners could be...


first check to make sure all the burner tops are setting correctly on the burner base, if not it will make the flame uneven. the way the igniter works is once they feel the flames on them they will stop sparking. make sure the flames are not too low and they are touching the igniter. check them one at a time. if you have any questions message me back thanks

OVEN ignition starts ok then after severl seconds the gas is turned off.\r\n Also range burners tend to continue sparking. Using Propane -- poor quality.


ignition level is low (it should be not less than 3.1 A) if it's below gas will turn on and off. you need to replace ignitors.
sparking is automatic reignition control (spark module), try to clean burners first and make sure they installed properly back after cleaning., if not than replace spark module.

Igniter keeps clicking, intermittent


There should be a little switch that slips over the stem of each burner control. Very common.

Wolf Sealed Rangetop Stopped Igniting


Do any of the burners click? If not, you may need a new spark module. If only one isn't clicking you may need a new ignition switch that is just behind the knob. I have also seen wires get pinched,stopping the flow of electricity. It may also be a computer board issue which is rare. Sooo you really need to call for service.

Ignitor won't shut off


The Viking manual says that an ignitor that continues to try to light even after the burner has been lit indicates improper grounding, and that an electrician should be consulted.

Perhaps you could try to replace the ignitor, and see if that fixes the problem?

I have a similar age, 6-burner 36" rangetop.

I have a viking rangetop and the griddle's gas is not turning on the glow plug works fine but no gas seems to be coming out.


Check the amperage draw to the igniter, if it is over 3amps and no gas, first off check the valve on the manifold behind then control panel if the valve is open then check the wiring to the thermal valve if it is connected then it would appear that the thermal valve is defective.

Viking range top 2 burners won't light


Either the igniters are at fault (which is usually the case when one or two are not working) or the entire oven ignition system needs to be replaced and can be done through Viking themselves whether you want them to replace it or you yourself replace it, you can get the part through them.
