Default Viking range top trips GFI
Model Number: VGRT4826GSS   Brand: -other-   Age: 1 - 5 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


My Viking range top trips the GFI when plugged in. I have unplugged the stove top and the GFI works fine. I am not familiar with the ignition system. Is this something I can repair or does a part need to be replaced? Can a pretty handy guy like myself do the fix or do I need an appliance pro?

thanks

Most likely there is nothing with the range. It is not recommended by the manufacturer to use a GFI. You have to use a regular outlet connected to a regular circuit breaker.

Thanks Gene. It was professionally installed 3 years ago and all has been OK until this weekend. I thought it was a bad GFI so I replaced it. As soon as I plug in the range the GFI trips. I wonder if I could experiment with an extension cord to a different circuit, although most in the kitchen are GFI protected??

If you have the Installation instructions came with the range then you can check the electrical requirements there. If you do not have one, I found the instructions on line and it 's written there on page 12: "Do not use GFI circuit".

Default Viking Range now Trips GFCI after 3+ years

Does anyone have an answer to why a Viking 6 burner range would all of sudden start tripping GFCI. Yes, i know it's supposed to be on its own dedicated 20amp circuit, but it worked fine on a GFCI multi receptable circuit. The builder hooked it up that way and i had no say in the matter.

Just looking for any answers before i start tearing up my house to install a dedicated line. I could remove the GFCI and remove all other "load" receptacles in the series, but then i would lose three outlets that are useful.

Thanks.

I do not have an easy answer for you.

When does it trip?
As soon as you plug the unit in or when you do a certain operation.
This may help you narrow it down if it trips on a certain operation then look in that area.

Could be a bad GFI.
If you have another/different GFI circuit try running it on that line.

If not a bad GFI then there is probably moisture or dirt that runs from the live side of the line to ground.

I would try running the unit on a non GFI circuit perhaps heating it up for a while will clear a moisture problem.

If you can get at the controls/boards easily try heating them up a couple times using a hair dryer. Do not get them too hot.

If it is a dirt problem then finding it will be very difficult.
