Need to replace griddle thermostat
My husband and I just had to check out our griddle on our 48 inch Viking rangetop. You remove the grates and the grate holders on either side of the griddle..it just pops out. Then you raise your griddle up about 4" to remove your thermastats., noting the position they are in so when you replace you can put back correctly. After pulling the thermastats out, then you lift the griddle out. Griddle is extremely heavy so be prepared to have close surface to lay it. Hope this helps.

Hotplate ignitor for VGCC5486G
Yes moisture stops the igniters working, use a hairdryer on the area around the igniter button, if you can get hot air in behind it. When it dries out it should continue to work.

My Viking range top grates are dirty
viking advises using nothing but warm soapy water. grate polish works very good to bring that deep black shine to the grates again

Vgsc3664qbu is converted to propane,
If the smell is there even when oven is not on, then you have a leak. Check gas hose and pressure regulator (if installed).
If smell is there only when oven is on, then the problem is either the igniter or the orifice.
Ensure that the orifice has been changed with the one for propane.
Check the flame from orifice. The flame must be blue with an orange tip. If the flame is mostly orange, then the lp is not burning correctly. That usually happens when the orifice is defective or wrong. Ensure that the kit is installed correctly.
If the orifice is OK, the problem can be the igniter. If the igniter is not working well there will be some gas release when the igniter try to start.
Check if problem is with both broiler and baker. Ensure that both assemblies had been replaced correctly. Check first the kit assembly and the orifice for both. If you do not find anything, replace igniters and burners. Do not use the oven until the problem is fixed. If the oven have been converted recently there is a problem with conversion kit. The conversion must be rectified before you can safely use the oven.

I have a Viking VGCC
Welcome to FixYa.
The way to replace those ignitors is through the oven itself and not the lower panel below the door. Of course the first step is to unplug the stove or turn off the breaker.
Remove the oven racks which will then allow you to remove the oven panel on the bottom of the oven, once removed you'll see the burners and gain access to the ignitor attached to the burner tube...this will provide plenty of room.
Let me know if any of this is not clear and I'll try and guide you through it.
