Question about Viking DIPR160R Stainless Steel Kitchen Hood

1 Answer

DIPR160R My Viking down draft hood is not functioning properly and the document provided from viking doesn't provide any troubleshooting guide. Symptoms: When I press the on/off button, the filter light comes on but the fan doesn't come on. I can hear the click of the switch on/off but wonder if there is an internal fuse. I've cleaned and reset the filter to no avail. Thanks, doug

If I'm not mistaken, these are the same as the Dacor range vents. If thats the case, we have seen a LOT of bad control boards on these, but I can't say I've ever had one with quite the symptoms you are describing. You may just need to reset the filter timer, as that light comes on every 40 hours of use I belive. But I think you said you have already done that. If you have cleared the light per the instructions and it just keeps coming back on, then you probably do have a bad control board. That should be located on the lower right of the unit behind a small square acces hole, if its like the model I am familiar with. They arent too hard to change, just make a diagram of all the wires before you pull em off and make sure to turn of the power first. One more thing, if the filter light doesnt come on after you reset it, try taking the blower motor box of the front of the unit and checking the 3 prong connector between the fan and the vent and make sure it hasn't come undone or that one of the terminals hasnt backed out of the connector, causing a poor contact. Good Luck!

Viking Gas Range Burners Won't Light? Here's What To Do... We'll discuss how to properly check the power sources and igniter when your Viking gas range burners won't light. We'll also provide a step-by-step guide illustrating how to clean Viking range burners with the right methods and materials.

Check For Power And Loose Connections

Are your Viking stove burners not igniting on demand? This may be more of a power issue and not a range malfunction. Even though you have a gas range, electricity is still required to ignite the burner. Here's how to check your stove's electrical sources to make sure they're functioning properly:
  • Make sure the stove is correctly plugged into a functioning outlet.
  • Check the stove's circuit breaker or fuse in your home's circuit breaker or fuse box. Reposition a tripped breaker or replace a blown fuse.
  • Refrain from using an extension cord to power your range. Most cords can't safely transmit the electricity required to power the stove.

How To Clean Viking Range Burners

Despite our best efforts, cooking spills and accidents can leave range burners compromised. Liquids, grease, and grime that go unnoticed during a hasty post-dinner cleaning can impair range components, resulting in burners that won't light.
This step-by-step guide provides Viking range cleaning tips that clean your burners and other stove components safely and effectively:

Grates:

Remove the grates and soak them in a sink of hot, soapy water for 15-20 minutes. For stubborn stains, add ammonia to the soaking liquid or scrub with Soft Scrub cleanser. Rinse with hot, soapy water and dry completely before replacing.

Burner Caps:

  1. Remove the caps by lifting straight upward.
  2. Scrub with hot, soapy water and a non-abrasive pad, using Soft Scrub cleanser for tougher stains.
  3. For persistent staining, place burner caps outside on a sheet of newspaper. Spray with Easy-Off Fume Free Max oven cleaner and allow to sit for 1-2 hours.
  4. Rinse with hot, soapy water.
  5. Allow caps to dry completely before replacing.

Burner Heads:

  1. Remove burner heads by lifting gently upward.
  2. Combine Bar Keeper's Friend and water to make a paste.
  3. Apply the paste to the burner head and leave for 30 minutes, resting on a clean towel.
  4. Scrub the paste into the burner head with a non-abrasive pad to remove stains.
  5. Rinse with hot, soapy water.
  6. Allow to dry completely.

Hood not getting power. Authorized viking tech said I need to get an installer to remove the hood before he could see what the problem is. Is this typical of techs to not remove to troubleshoot?

It depends on the installation: larger hoods, intricate installs and liability concerns could all raise this concern by a tech. It should be simple to begin by checking for electric at the wiring connection inside the hood terminal box without removing the hood from the cabinet. If there is no power supplied to the hood then an electrician should correct the fault in the house wiring.
