Question about Viking Kitchen Ranges

Open Question

I have a Viking Induction cooktop. Twice within the past week a cooktop on one side failed to heat. The indicator light binks but no heating. In both cases the EMI board had to be replaced. Unit is 2 years old. Viking did agree to pick up cost of parts. Good thing, $$$$. Is there a report design problem? Model VICU1054BSB

SOURCE: Oven will not heat past 220 degrees

Check your bake element, I had the exact same problem and found the bake element had burned in half. The broil element comes on during preheat and kicks off at around 220 degrees.

THE COOKTOP WONT HEAT UP. BUT THE LIGHT ON THE CONTROL KNOB LIGHTS.


My first guess would be to check for proper connection at the wires from the stove body to that specific heating element.
Perhaps, lift-off or open the cook-top cover, and check the hook-up to the heating element itself.
How old is your stove, and is it fitted with the common "coil type" elements? Unless it's a very late, high-tech model, capable of checking its own wiring, the indicator light will illuminate regardless of an open circuit to the heating element because older models can't "see" or "know" whether something has come loose, so the indicator light will come on, and just sit there, cold and clueless.
Bon Apetit!!

Why do oven lights keep blowing?


make sure the bulbs your using are rated for "appliance duty" if a plain normal house bulb is used the glass is too thin and heat ruins bulb in short time , also make sure heat resistant bulb cover "if there" is in place and not part ways off to one side or the other

Feature not available


I had the same problem with a new kitchenaid range which they have agreed to replace after 1 month. Oven shut off a couple times while baking and feature not available displayed when trying to turn on oven again. I tried starting clean cycle and waiting a couple minutes for element to heat then cancelled clean cycle. Oven worked fine after this but this shouldnt be a solution, obviously something not wired right.

JEC0530ADB I have a 6/2 cable with ground presently can I use this wire for my new cooktop JEC0530ADB. Do I need a neutral for this unit.


The current cooktop worked with the 6/2 and thusly the new one should. It defiently advisable to use 6/3 wire but not necessary. It in essance already has a neutral using the ground, if the old one has any indicator lights that worked it used the ground as a neutral to complete the hot&neutral circuit necessary to light the indicator light. The indicators work off of a 120 volt circuit and 240 is needed to heat only

The stove top is internally wired separately from the oven. Check that you don't have a faulty circuit breaker in your breaker panel. The oven is 240V which has two breakers ganged together. If only one side trips you can loose power to the heating elements but still have power to the control board (to light up ON).

Oven not cooking at correct temperature & loses heat


Had a similar issue - but my unit is eight years old. Turns out my issues were my oven ignitors were failing and one of the burners had corroded causing the flame to only light on one side. To fix I replaced two ignitors (apparently they are to be replaced every 3-5 years) and cleaned the burner with a brass wire brush. If you are handy the ignitors are easy to replace - one screw and two wires each. Burner was one screw to remove.

Ceramic ignitors if wearing out can cause delayed lighting of the oven burners and/or reduce the gas flow - hence not heating up.

That was my experience ....

Viking oven not heating past 150 degrees


My viking oven had same issue - I needed to replace the ceramic ignitors (if ignitors fail to heat up properly the gas valve remains partially closed). Apparently they are intended to be replaced every 3-5 years. Also inspect and clean the oven burners - mine had corroded somewhat and prevented the flame from 'moving' to the opposite side - ie only half the burner was lighting. If you are handy the ignitors are very easy to replace - one screw, two wires each.
