Hi,I could use some help in fixing my viking vgrt 3004-bss. This is an open burner gas rangetop. 2 of the 4 burner work correctly in that after they light, the ignitor stops. The other 2 light but the ignitor won't stop. The web research on this subject suggests to clean the igniter. Do I clean the metal piece, or the ceramic piece and with what? Also how can I make sure the gap between the igntor and burn is correct, and what is the best way to adjust? Any help diagnosing and fixing this would be appreciated, and would merit beers.Thanks,Ian

It may not be the gapping or the cleaning on those .... they use a reigintion module that may not be sensing that the flame is on and heating .... also make sure that there is no wind blowing the flame away from the ignitor tip..... simple things to try first are take a piece of sandpaper and clean the tips of the ignitors lightly and make sure the the flame is actually coming close to the tips   ...... If the burners  always light every time within 3 seconds ..... I would replace the spark ( re- ignition )module.... also inspect the spark ignitors and make sure that they are not cracked or dirty for that matter.....    just make sure that the flame is making or coming in close contact with the ignitor....

Try switching the igniters with the ones that work correctly. This will allow you to determine if the igniter module is working correctly or if you need to clean/adjust or replace the igniter.
