Replacing the oven burner, igniter, and thermostat on the Viking Range model VGIS360-6BDSS involves several detailed steps. It’s important to approach this task with care and make sure you have the necessary tools and safety precautions. If you are not comfortable performing the repair yourself, it is highly recommended that you contact a professional technician. However, if you decide to proceed, here is a general guide on how to replace these components. Please note that this is a simplified guide and the specific steps may vary depending on the configuration of your appliance and the parts you are replacing.

Repairing procedure

Safety First

  • Turn off the gas supply to your range to prevent gas leaks.
  • Disconnect the range from the electrical supply to avoid electric shock.
  • Have a fire extinguisher nearby as a precaution.

Tools You May Need

  • Screwdrivers (Phillips and flat-head)
  • Adjustable wrench or set of wrenches
  • Nut driver
  • Multimeter (for testing the igniter)
  • Replacement parts (oven burner, igniter, thermostat)

Replacing the Oven Burner

  • Access the Burner:
    • Remove the oven racks.
    • Take out the oven bottom by removing the screws that hold it in place. This will expose the burner.
  • Remove the Old Burner:
    • Disconnect the gas supply tube from the burner. Use an adjustable wrench.
    • Remove any screws or brackets holding the burner in place.
    • Carefully lift out the old burner.
  • Install the New Burner:
    • Position the new burner in the oven.
    • Reattach it using the screws or brackets you previously removed.
    • Reconnect the gas supply tube to the burner.

Replacing the Igniter

  • Remove the Old Igniter:
    • Locate the igniter, which is usually attached near the burner.
    • Disconnect the electrical connectors leading to the igniter.
    • Unscrew the igniter from its mount.
  • Install the New Igniter:
    • Attach the new igniter to the mount with the screws you removed.
    • Reconnect the electrical connectors.
    • Make sure the igniter is not touching the burner but is close enough to ignite the gas.

Replacing the Thermostat

  • Access the Thermostat:
    • The thermostat is typically located behind the control panel. You may need to remove the back panel or the front panel of the range to access it.
  • Remove the Old Thermostat:
    • Take a photo or make a note of the wire connections for reference.
    • Disconnect the wires from the thermostat.
    • Unscrew or unclip the old thermostat from its position.
  • Install the New Thermostat:
    • Mount the new thermostat in the same position as the old one.
    • Reconnect the wires as they were originally connected (refer to your photo or notes).
    • Reassemble any panels you had to remove to access the thermostat.

Final Steps

  • Reinstall the oven bottom and racks.
  • Reconnect the electrical supply and turn on the gas supply.
  • Test the oven to ensure it lights properly and reaches the desired temperature.

Important Note

  • Always refer to the manufacturer’s manual for specific instructions related to your model. If any steps in the process are unclear or if you encounter unexpected issues, stop and seek professional assistance.
Remember, safety is paramount. If at any point you feel unsure about the process, it’s best to consult with or hire a professional technician.
