Question about Viking VGSC366-6B Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Viking Range My Viking Range has one burner that keeps trying to light even when it is turned off. It is driving us crazy with its clicking - how do we turn it off? My problem is similar. The starter continues to click long after the burner is lighted. A separate problem: two (out of six) burners won't light at all (no clicking) and require a match to light (not what I paid many $$$ for).

    I have the same problem with a sparker that does not stop. Where is the sensor located that should stop the sparker and what is the part number?

    I have the same problem with a sparker that does not stop. It stops sparking when both burners are turned on. This problem occurs regardless of which burner is turned on first.

    I have the same problem with a sparker that does not stop. If I turn on the 2nd burner both sparkers stop sparking. As soon as I turn off one burner the other starts sparking. I have replaced both sparkers and tried replacing the sparker module to no avail. Please advise.

The clicking is the electrode arcing. when the burner lights, a sensor tells the electrode to stop sparking after is heats up a little, that's why is clicks a little after the burner lights, but then stops. If the spark keeps going, the sensor is not registering the flame. The ones that do not click could be the ignite coil, the wire, or the electrode.

Viking range burners won't light


from I review I found it might be this...Simple replacement of Glow Bar igniter requires removal of entire front panel with many screws
so sounds like your igniter might be shot - it heats up to ignite the burners - easy fix - get a long torch lighter and just light the gas after turning it on -

Viking with CRAZY Ignitor


Hi there, I am attaching your manual in case it helps you.

On page 53, in the troubleshooting chart, the ninth item down seems to suggest similar 'problems' - including possible 'cause / remedy' to the right in same chart.

The manual includes the manufacturers contact info on page 1 of this pdf (the back page of the manual itself.).

Or, the manual LINK is here:

(and attached as noted above). Good luck to you!

Ignitor won't shut off


The Viking manual says that an ignitor that continues to try to light even after the burner has been lit indicates improper grounding, and that an electrician should be consulted.

Perhaps you could try to replace the ignitor, and see if that fixes the problem?

I have a similar age, 6-burner 36" rangetop.

Juliac, the burner valve switch for that burner is either shorted or grounding out. Each burner control has a valve switch that controls the power to the igniter. Sometimes they just get full of gunk and short. Part number is PA020015. Catriver...post back.
