Viking model VGR48 stovetop burners will not ignite?

I have the Viking model VGR48. It has 6 burners and a griddle.
The problem I'm having is the stovetop burners will not ignite.
I have had this issue in the past and have solved it by replacing the both oven ignitors.
I believe the problem is the spark ignitor.
If this is the case, is there a procedure to replace it?

When it is the spark ignitor you have no spark at all, sometimes the ignitor keep clicking but no spark comes.
To replace the ignitors you usually remove stovetop panel, then ignitors should result easily accessible.
You can get Viking replacement parts here.
Just insert your model number.

Hi,

The part that is bad is the spark module. It should be located on the back of the stove.

    When you're having trouble getting your stove burners to ignite,
    usually it takes the form of one of the three types of problems:



    • You hear clicking but there's no ignition.

    • You hear clicking but it's erratic.

    • You don't have ignition and you don't even hear clicking.

First shut off the gas supply & disconnect electrical power to the range.

  • Remove all the burner control knobs, grates, burner caps & trim rings.
  • Remove the 2 screws securing the manifold panel, one from each corner. The panel will drop down.
  • Remove the screws from each manifold pipe mounting bracket. Remove 1/4 inch hex head bolt from the center of the manifold pipe. Push supply tube back to release from manifold pipe. Lift the cooktop assembly at the front to clear the 1/2 inch locator pins attached to the top of the bodyside.
  • Place cardboard between each side of cooktop & bodyside to prevent damage.
  • Move the cooktop to one side, being careful not to put stress on the wiring harness on left side.
  • Remove the wire from the electrode.
  • Remove the screw from the electrode mounting bracket to release the electrode.
You can replace the electrode & reassemble following instructions in reverse order.

Viking model vdsc4874gss small oven works fine large oven element on bottom only gets hot in cleaniong mode, fan comes on when dial is turned to convection but no heat power is on light works


One thing that you can check is make sure that you have 220 volts at the plug. Leave the unit unplugged and check continuity on the burners. You should have continuity on the burners.

Is there a cleaning manual for my 6 burner/griddle viking range?


I have a product that I use to clean my burners and griddle with, it is made by ECOLAB and is called Greasecutter Plus. It doesn't hurt the range but it makes it look brand new, even my griddle comes completely clean. You just spray it on then let it sit for a bit then it wipes clean.

Where can I locate the model number on my viking range? (48")


Mine was located to the left of the top burners. Remove the grates covering the burners, remove the 'spill' pans, lift up the surface that held the spill pans and then on the LHS you should see a plate with your units details.

Need to replace griddle thermostat


My husband and I just had to check out our griddle on our 48 inch Viking rangetop. You remove the grates and the grate holders on either side of the griddle..it just pops out. Then you raise your griddle up about 4" to remove your thermastats., noting the position they are in so when you replace you can put back correctly. After pulling the thermastats out, then you lift the griddle out. Griddle is extremely heavy so be prepared to have close surface to lay it. Hope this helps.

One stovetop burner does not initiate igniter sparking.


Its most likely the igniter. It might just be dirty, but its easy to install a new one. They are attached by two screws and a single plug. I'd suggest turning the power off to the stove before plugging in a new one.

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.
