Question about Viking Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

We purchased a house with a 60-inch Wolf range. Our problem is that the igniters function, but it takes several seconds before gas flows to the burner. Once one of the burners is on, the others come on quickly. All six burners and both ovens can be operated simultaneously, so gas supply is not the issue. It's initial gas supply that is the problem. I should mention that the stove is rated for 6000 feet elevation and above, but we are at 5050 feet. Could the modification be causing the gas flow delay?

Yall might have to install a special kit for higher elevations. The stove might be rated for higher elevations but is it tweaked for that ? Not hardly. Most stoves come for set for normal conditions. I bet yall need to add a high elevation kit.

No gas to oven


Hello, even though the igniter is glowing it does not mean it is drawing the correct amps to open the safety valve. If your igniter is glowing orange replace it. Igniters should glow brillient yellow to the point where you cant look at it. replace the igniter and you will be good to go. Good Luck!! Mike

My Whirlpool accubake is taking a very long time to heat up


It is possible that the igniter that lights the gas is getting weak... as they weaken it takes longer for them to heat up hot enough to ignite the gas. When you light the oven, you should be able to see the orange glow of the igniter within a few seconds (it's similar to a cigarette lighter from a car) within 20-30 seconds you should hear the gas light.

Wolf Range r366 - How do I replace the igniter


I have a Wolf Gas Range and initially my igniter incessantly sparked. I noticed that the igniter is cracked. Do I need to replace it and if so how do I replace it? The electrical wire to the igniter became disconnected; should sticking it back into the igniter cause it to work?

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.

For caloric gas range, the bake function did not kick in after setting the temperature dail. Display window shows on but no gas burning. Temperature stays at 100 degrees.


Usually when an oven won't bake, it's because the bake igniter is weak or burned out. The igniter is a small, round or rectangular device, that's about 1 inch by 4 to 8 inches. It's near the burner itself.

The burner is the tube-type device the gas flows through before it's ignited. It has many small holes on the sides to let the gas, when ignited, form a long, low flame. If the igniter is weak, if it glows red but doesn't get hot enough, or if it's burned out, the gas doesn't flow to the burner and the burner won't ignite. If this is the problem, you may need to replace either the igniter or the gas safety valve. Usually the igniter is to blame.

Other causes Other reasons that your oven may not bake are:

  • The clock settings are incorrect (if you have timed baking or a self-cleaning oven).

  • The thermostat is defective.

  • The safety valve that prevents accidental gas flow is defective.

  • The selector switch is defective.
