RE: Problems with Igniters on Viking Range (Follow-Up #10)

posted by: chiefneil on 07.14.2006 at 11:14 am in Kitchens Forum

Apart from what brickeeye said with cleaning, you do need to make sure you have the updated parts I mentioned. There are a couple components. There's a new wiring and ignitor module, and there are updated electrodes (the little white ceramic doohickeys that shoot out the sparks). Older electrodes were matte finish, which apparently would build up crud faster than the new polished ones. They're also tougher, as the older ones could easily crack during installation or repair. The electrodes were updated early this year, so make sure your repair guy isn't using old stock. The ignitor kit was updated last year, so there may be old stock floating around for them too.

My local repair service wasn't up to speed on all this. I called Viking and they hooked me up directly with the regional distributor who has their own repair service, and they were very familiar with the problem and fixes.
