If your Viking stovetop burner isn’t turning on, it’s highly recommended to perform a little detective work.
Inspect the Gas
One of the best methods to check and confirm if the gas is functioning is by just switching the burner on. When you notice the clicking sound of the ignition, however, still no light, then it’s possible that the Viking stove burner is either getting no supply or a limited amount of gas. We advise you to check the burners and confirm when they will light. When it’s only the one burner is causing an issue, that likely indicates that you have a loose connection or that the stove burner is filthy to enable the smooth gas flow. Check all the connections and wipe the burner properly to give the burner a high possibility of restoration.
Observe the Ignition
If you light up a Viking gas stove, you should hear a clicking noise. The clicking sounds are the ignition lighting the gas going to the burner. When you notice the clicking sounds, however, still see no light, check if you can smell any gas. But that does not mean smelling it thoroughly. That is simply to check a gas smell in the area while trying to ignite your burner. When you don’t smell any gas, then its flow may be blocked. Clean the burner properly so that gas can pass through freely.
If you go to light the burner and there are no clicking sounds, that may be a sign that you must have a new ignition switch. The ignition switch is designed to initially ignite the gas, thus no ignition means no light.
