I have a viking VGIS480-6GDSS range the oven door will only open 1/3 of the way. I need to get the door opened. I need either the schematics or other information to get the door operational.

    I will go to the house and try that solution. However, does this mean every time I have to do this or just this once. Why did the stove door stop in this position

    Most microwave door switches can be tested for continuity to see if the switch has failed. This can "fool" you sometimes. This switch looks fine, tested fine with an ohm meter and even made the "click" noise ok when we pressed on the actuator button.

  • tech expert12 Aug 27, 2008

    BUT,

    Once we opened up the switch, it became clear this switch's contacts where being overheated and failing = new switch time.



    This switch "looked" ok, "checked" ok with an ohm meter...but as you can see...it is not ok.

My viking oven door has literally fallen off the left hand side hinge - is this a diy FIX?


The door slides onto the two hinges and is held in place with two gravity operated latches. I'm not sure of the condition of your range but it sounds like the door was forced or lifted rapidly allowing the one side to release. The only solution I know of is to remove the other side and reinstall. The hinges have multiple locking positions so the next time you are cleaning your oven, open the door about 8 inches, find the small latches in the door hinge groove, and hold them upwards as you lift the door towards yourself.
The hinges should remain slightly opened. For installation, lower the door onto the hinge posts and pull it outwards slightly.

I have a viking VGIC365-6bss I pre-heated oven to 500 degrees and now the oven door will not open.


One of the door hinges was loose. You have to lift the door by the handle to open it.

Viking range self cleaning not working - door locked


This is a more common problem than revealed by Viking.
Heres how I an "amature" fixed it.
Top center of many viking ovens have slots. With a small flashlight look into the center slots. "Its HARD to see" Look for something
shiney thats the latch/hook everything else will be dark.
I used a shish ka bab skwer. You need something like that or maybe an ice pick. Knives screwdrivers and things like that will
damage the face of the oven and then after opeining it you will forever feel bad about marring that very expensive unit.
Take the pick and with the flashlight guide it to the shiney part.
Once touching push to the LEFT. Keep trying as the pick will slip
many times. The latch should have no resistance if you can get on it.
Once open you can try and reset the hook to its open position.
Mine would not reset and prevented the door from closing.
This is now another fix. To keep the hook held to the open position. E mail me for how I jury rigged this part.
Mexvillas@aol.com
I have the hook held open now and will never be able to use the self clean function again. But thats better for me than a open wallet fix for the repair man and then wonder when it will happen again. To repeat. This is a known problem with Viking ovens.

Cheers

VGSC3054 oven door won't open


After frantically calling Viking hdqtrs and several repair shops for their advice and experience, it turned out that after my husband fiddled further with it, something got unstuck and it miraculously opened all the way again. Don't think we'll ever know what caused it in the first place , but it works now.

The door can be removed from the hinge assembly by lifting upwards and outwards while the door is only slightly open - no hardware needs to be removed to get the door off. My door VGIC366 hinges did the same thing a few years ago, and simply cleaning them fixed the problem entirely.

Oven door hinge adjustment...?


Regarding the oven door not closing all the way and dropping suddernly to the floor, I called a local authorized service company and asked if there was a door spring (no). So the recommended solution is to have the hinges replaced. However, since the oven door didn't really hold its open position from the beginning, when it was brand new back in 01, I'm going to see if a new Viking oven has the same defect as ours. Then, it would seem like a good idea to take a chance on having it repaired.

Is replacing a set of oven door hinges something a person with reasonable mechanical aptitude can do?
