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: Kenmore HE4t Dryer - no heat

The usual suspect for a Kenmore HE that runs, but doesn't heat is a thermal cut-out or the thermal fuse. Although they are a bit more resilient, in some cases the heating element itself could be bad. The way to check: 1. UNPLUG THE DRYER, FIRST. 2. Remove the bottom kick plate on the front of the dryer. 3. Remove the blower fan cover directly under the lint screen. There should be a couple of 1/4" screws holding it on. 4. Directly behind the blower fan cover on top of the blower fan housing are two components. One is the operating thermostat, and the white one is a thermal fuse. The fuse is a one-shot fuse that must be replaced if it is bad. 5. To the right is the heating element housing. There are two additional components mounted on the side of the element housing. The component furthest to the back is the thermal fuse. The one one closest to you is the hi-limit thermostat. 6. Check the continuity of thermal fuse and the thermal cut-out. They both should read a short. Additionally, check the resistance of the the heating element. The element should read something low (less than 20 ohms). 7. If the thermal fuse reads open, replace it. If the thermal cut-out is bad, replace the hi-limit thermostat with it. They are usually sold as a set. If the heating element is bad, you will need to disconnect all electrical leads and remove one 1/4" screw holding the element housing to the bottom casing. Pull the entire element housing from the dryer. Depending on model, sometimes the element slide out of the housing, sometimes you will need to remove a few screws to open it up. I hope this helps you.

SOURCE: no heat!, light blinks 3 times

Make sure the inducer motor is free of condensation and that all water is able to drain out. Unfortunately your furnace is a lower-grade “builders” model and does not have the same quality of components and workmanship as a Carrier or American Standard furnace. Prior to these failures, It was about 1/2 the price of the units mentioned. And the warranty drops off quickly. You get what you pay for.

Contact Goodman to see if they will cover the cost of your parts at 1-877-254-4729 US only. Their own motto is “Quality Makes the Difference”. It sure does.

One of the electric burners on our induction cooktop is misfiring and making noise. Who can fix these things? Is it better to buy a new one?


I recommend to buy a new one, induction cooktop prices have come down a lot and there are good ones available for about $1000. FOr me, the only problem with putting a new one in was the hole in the countertop was too small for the new cooktop (Viking has a smaller hole requirement than most other cooktops). So be sure to measure the hole in the countertop before you buy a new one so you can buy one that fits.

Hotpoint induction hob wont turn on


Check power supply at socket or meter box. Make sure that the circuit breaker hasn't tripped. Also, induction cooktops wont heat without induction cookware. They must be steel. Glass cookware wont work on an induction cooktop.

GE Profile mod. PP975bM3BB all lights work Burner will not heat


You have lost half of the circuit in the breaker, the lights work on one side of it but the burners need both sides of a 220 volt circuit. I would have the breaker tested first, and if it is good, look for a fuse, relay, breaker in the back of the stove. Hope this helps.

The induction cooker when put on it shows E6 after about a minute or so and no heating takes place.


There is a error message there, it indicate a problem with your induction cooker. It cause a defective winding wire or circuit controllers your know induction cooker works similar to the principle of electro magnet induction, it give heat to metal cooking pot. I hope I give you a idea regarding what happen to your unit.

I have a Viking cooktop with a fan that rises when the side button is pushed. The fan will no longer go up. How can I fix it?


I just finished researching the same issue for my 36" downdraft. It appears that the ost common problem is the little up/down switch.

Most folks on-line were being told that they had to buy the whole top unit for $500.00 plus labor. But an electrical engineerpointed out that allvikingparts.com sold a switch for about $60.00 delivered.

It seems that if one holds the switch for an extended period of time it can heat up and burn a connector - might be a coincidence, but my unit stopped working just after my 4 year old grandson visited for two weeks - I made the mistake of showing him how pushing the button would make the vent go up and down. So the switch probably got mre use in a week than it had in the eight years since it was installed.

You can simply peel your switch off with your finger nail ( it will stick right back). On mine I noticed that the center "wire" hade a dark line through it which probably indicates that it is "burned"

My part is on the way.

Hope this helps - $57.00 is much easier to swallow than $595.00

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.
