Default viking range burner clicks even when lit
Model Number: Viking Professional 30"   Brand: -other-   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


I have a Viking 30" stove. All the burners light correctly with the electricity (no matches needed). However, the front right burner continues to click even after it is lit. I have read that it could be dirty or wet, but I have sprayed it out with canned air, I have removed the top plate part, and I have ran the burner for over 30 minutes and still it clicks. I would like to repair this myself if possible (can't really afford appliance repair). Can you help me with where to start?

Default range burner ignitor clicking

The fix to stop the ignition module clicking is probably related to a poor ground wire found poorly connected to the range top ignition module. Access the ignition module easily from the top of the range . The ground wire feeding the ignition module is probably not making good contact with the stove chassis.

The ignition module ground wire is found inside the protective case which houses the ignition module and all the common connections for each burner . It is located in the center portion of the range top.

Since the ignition module itself is totally plastic, the only way it can get a ground is from that single ground wire. (Green).
The range must have excellent bonding and grounding of the ignition module for it to function properly.

I locate the (green) ground wire to the sheet metal fastener that holds the common terminal strip(also found inside the ignition cover) to the chassis .
When I relocated the ground wire in this manner, the chronic problem ceased.
It is not too difficult to relocate that ground wire to make a better metal to metal bond. 4 Phillips screws on the ignition support panel and 4 Phillips screws to remove the ignition module cover.
Good luck. Unplug the range before you work on it.

VikingQAswami, thank you so much for your reply. I was able to locate the single green ground wire and I see what you mean about it's factory location and how it can provide a poor ground. However, the other three burners work fine (stop clicking when lit) so I didn't think this was the issue. When I grounded the green wire to make sure it was firmly touching the chassis, I was able to confirm that this was not the issue because again, the other three burners work correctly, but the front right burner still clicks continuously after being lit.

I wanted to test out a couple things so I switched around the little white ignitor poles from back burner to front, and still the front burner clicks. Does that mean it's a problem with that blue plastic ignitor box? I looked online a replacement (Tytronics RI 120E-4) but can't find it anywhere. Is it something else?

Thank you!

switching the wires did nothing but confuse the module...

Remove the front and rear ignitor and swap them, leaving the wiring on the same burner. if the problem follows the ignitor then voila, you need a new ignitor. If the problem remains on the same burner, it is a faulty wire or module. Usually the module, but confirm that the wire is in good shape before buying a $100 module.
