    NOT SURE WHAT YOU MEAN. THERE IS A CAST IRON GRID, OR POT STAND, OVER THE BURNER. THE BURNER HAS A REMOVABLE METAL ROUND BURNER, WITH HOLES ALONG THE BOTTOM, WHERE THE FLAMES COME OUT. NOT SURE WHAT YOU MEANT BY REMOVABLE FRAME UNLESS YOU MEANT GRID. BURNER WILL LIGHT NORMALLY WITHOUT THE GRID.

    THE METAL BURNER CAP HAS A METAL NOTCH TO MAKE SURE THE FIT IS CORRECT. THAT IS MOUNTED CORRECTLY. YES. NO FLAME, NO SPARK, NO NOISE FROM 1 OF THE 6 BURNERS.

    geemarie



    i appreciated your interest.



    beleive it or not, i seemed to have fixed it by

    removing the cap, using comp;ressed air like you use for blowing your computer keyboard and mouse clean, and blew air into the open tube.



    also, i turned on and off the gas line a couple of times.



    suddenly i heard click click when i turned on the know of the

    nonworking burner, turned the knob on and off a few times, and yes, it started to work. not sure if the comp;ressed air blew away something inside the line, thanks for caring.

Is the little center post of the removable frame over your burners in the little notch where it is supposed to rest?

    Okay, My stove will not lite without the grid in the correct position, I thought perhaps yours was the same. When you turn the burner on, does gas come out? Can you lite it manually? ( Quickly and carefully) If it willnot deliver gas , then it is has to be plugged somehow. Does the burner look normal and clean?You might ask if anyone has spilled something on the burner. It would have to be a big spill though, and just to affect that burner seems odd. I believe that you are going to need a repairman.

    Wow You and I both learned something. I was about to suggest that you use some sort of blowing device on a low setting to see if you could blow it out.



    Thanks for using Fix Ya

The Viking gas stove - 6 burner - clicks constantly -- it won't stop. it has done this for years and usually goes off after a while but now it wont stop clicking. The burner that is not even on click.


Hello,
The problem is one(or more) of the 6 switches that turn on the spark when that burner is turned on is shorted and stays closed (on) all the time.To determine which one it is the front face has to be removed,with THE POWER OFF a meter set to low ohms rating is used to check each switch by removing the wires to it and see which one has continunity (ZERO OHMS) when its off and that switch that slips on the burner valve shaft is the bad switch(s) and needs to be replaced to keep it from sparking all the time.
Please note though, in a perfectly working cooktop all burners spaks at the same time and only the only one that has the gas flowing to it will ignite,that part is normal.

I hope this helps you to repair your cooktop,
Gene

Viking pro 6 burner cooktop igniter won't stop clicking after lighting on two of the burners


Do not attempt if your stovetop is hot, you will get burned!!

This is an easy fix, the problem is your burners aren't lined up properly. Remove the iron grates (what your pots rest on) and the burner cap (the round black top on the burner) and finally the burner base (the round golden colored piece resting on the stainless stovetop). If you flip the base over you will see that it is keyed, meaning there is a grove that fits the indentation on the stove top. When you replace the base make sure to line the grove up with the indentation. If it's not flush with the stove top, slowly twist the round burner base until it falls into place. That's it!

Viking 30" gas professional series cooktop sparking problem


And before that Most likely one of the ignition switches (they are under knobs) got shorted possibly due to spilled liquid or a cleaning stuff sprayed on. In that case it should stop sparking after a switch drys. Still no go replace the spark control unit.

VGSU 36" gas cook-top control panel paint coming off


I just bought a bank repo home in So. Cal. that has the same Viking range as you have. Yes, the black lettering has almost entirely rubbed off. on this one too. Not good for such an expensive product.

I bit the bullet and ordered a new panel from appliancezone.com

http://store.appliancezone.com

Part # PE40057

The price is about $75, $80 with shipping, which is a ripoff I know.

I plan to put a clear coat of sealer on it and let my wife know to treat it gently.

I was surprised how many people think Viking products suck. Lots of negative reviews abound on the internet. If I was to buy a whole new range I think I'd avoid this brand.

Cheers,

Clicking noise on cooktop even when all burners ignite


I have a viking gas cooktop. The ignitor on one of my front burners wouldn't stop clicking even after the flame ignited. I swapped that ignitor with the ignitor from a back burner, expecting that the problem was with the ignitor and that the back burner would start to click incessantly, but at least I'd have my favorite front burner for use. Instead, the front burner was then only clicking 50% of the time and the back burner was fine, suggesting the problem was related to the burner not the ignitor. I pulled the front ignitor a bit away from the burner and now it is working normally. Hope this helps.
