Once you purchase kitchen furniture and appliances, most people focus on the minor details of these items, thinking how convenient they will be to maintain. Usually, it emanates from an unpleasant experience of having non-removable knobs and several frustrating attempts to clean them.
How To Clean The Range
As there are several different models of Viking ranges with both removable and non-removable components, we will give some tips for each situation. The recommended products and methods will help you maintain the cleanliness of your range to perfection so that it will serve you well for many years.
- Do not close the window to air the room.
- Place paper or cloth under the range to filter the dirt and throw after.
- Disconnect the appliance from the power source.
- Apply a cleaning agent like chlorine on the knobs.
- Leave for the time specified on the label.
- Spray on the surface to remove the dirt.
- Utilize a hard sponge, toothbrush, and toothpicks to reach the edges.
- Remove the cleaning agent by using a sponge and cloth many times.
- Collect the dirt below the stove and wipe the surfaces in the kitchen.
For Viking range cleaning, the four heating devices need to be replaced. Rewiring/connectors may also be necessary. The 4 door lock mechanisms that are broken and need new parts.
How To Change The Knob
For many Viking range models, the control knobs can be easily removed. Although they regulate the flow of gas to the burners in a gas range, you may not turn off the gas prior to removing the knobs. But you will need to see to it that the knobs are properly set in the off mode. They will move no further in that area so you can remove them without worrying about igniting the gas or electricity to the burner.
When the range knobs are stuck, seal a bit of soft wire on the prong at the back of it and tug in an effort to take them off. Once the knob is stuck, be very cautious when performing it. Excessive pressure up or down can kink the prong or break other components in the ignition system. When it is stuck quite strongly, contact a professional out only to see to it that no further problem is made.
If the Viking range knobs are replaced, this is a great chance to clean behind them. Much grime can accumulate at the back of the range knobs which can make it hard to adjust. When that part has been cleaned, the new range knobs will move right on to the prongs. You will have to see to it that the groove is aligned with the correct prong before it will be placed.
