    I have the exact same problem. Everything but the oven works consistently. Starter or light does flicker and then go out.

    My viking stove that has 6 burners and a griddle model VGIS4806GDSS that has 2 ovens has a problem with the two stove top burner igniters on the left side. On this model when you turn on any of the gas burners on the stove top all of the igniters spark normally but now the two on the left do not. The ovens and griddle seem to be working normally. What can be the problem and what is the procedure to change whatever part is defective?

Igniters need to be replaced

    BAD SOLUTION: if there is any flame at all the igniter is working. (After all, the igniter is only a heating element that ignites the gas). My guess, it's a valve/carburetor issue for the oven burners.

Viking oven burner not turning on properly


Sounds like your ceramic ignitors have worn out - apparently they are to be replaced every 3-5 years - at least I had a similar situation and this is how it was solved. I have two ignitors in the larger oven & 1in the smaller one. Easy to replace (60$/each) - two wire and one screw each. Issue is when they fail to heat up properly the gas valve doesn't open fully, or won't open at all.

Also I'd clean the burners when in there ... mine corroded a bit and required brass wire brushing. There is a small **** on the burner that had filled in (width of a piece of paper) which prevented the flame from moving to the opposite side of the burner - so essentially only one side of the burner lit.

Broiler works, oven settings - no flame, no heat.


Hi, it sounds like the oven ignitor might be bad. Remove the floor panel inside the oven and you will see the ignitor attached to the burner assembly. Turn the oven on and see if it glows. You can test the connection for the ignitor and see if it gets 120V to it. The most common problem with the gas oven is the ignitor. Most of the time, the ignitor glows but is not strong enough to open the gas valve.
Please let me know if this was helpfull or if I can assist you further.

Thanks
Vic

Oven takes a long time to preheat


Before we go into diagnosis mode, call the customer service # in the owners manual and complain about the problem.  They usually will make a concession when it is this close to the warranty period.  Let me know what you find out.
