If the Range Won’t Function at All…


When a range fails to do anything at all, the most likely cause is a lack of electrical power. Check to see if the circuit breaker has been tripped and take a look at the fuses – one may be blown. If neither of those is the issue, the wiring within the range could be the culprit.


If the Self-Clean Feature Isn’t Working…


When the self-clean feature isn’t functional, the solution could be as simple as pushing the range door closed. The door needs to be shut tightly, or the self-cleaning cycle won’t start.


If your problem is that the self-cleaning cycle didn’t seem to actually do any cleaning, the temperature control knob could be to blame. If it’s not rotated properly, completely past clean until it stops, the feature won’t work.


If the Range Won’t Broil…


When the broil feature on a Viking range isn’t operating as it should, the problem may also be in the temperature control knob. In this case, the knob may have been rotated beyond the broil position. Try the feature again, fixing the temperature at the broil setting – not past it – and you should be back to broiling.


If the Ignitors Have Problems…


When the range ignitor won’t even spark, a power issue, like a tripped circuit breaker or blown fuse, could be the reason. If the ignitor sparks, but the flame refuses to ignite, gas isn’t being supplied – which means either the gas supply valve is in the ‘off’ position or the home supply to the range has been interrupted.


If none of these troubleshooting tips worked to restore your range to working condition, contacting an authorized service technician is the best solution. For fast, effective Viking range appliance repair in Utah or Colorado, turn to the professionals at Kimball Appliance Parts and Service.
