this may be a tricky one but i will give it a shot , you may not have a problem with the module or the ignitors , from your post i`m guessing what you have is a flame sensing ignitor and your burner is overfiring most of these units will do this (continue to spark even after the burner is lite) reason: the ignitor is also the flame sensor , cause: the flame from the burner and/or burners is not making contact with the ignitor therefore sensing a need to relight (this is also common with amana units ) test precedure: take a 2inch piece of copper strand wire (thread size) and somehow connect it to the end of the ignitor or if it has some space in the ceramic push it in there now position the remaning wire so that it will be in the flame , does this correct the problem? if yes then you have one of two problems the orfice is dirty or damaged or the pressure regulator is not operating correctly , please report your results so we can determine if we need to look a bit further. p.s . oversized pots and pans can cause this problem as well , if you reply please be as detailed as possible.
I followed the advice of someone here, and swapped a good ignitor to the burner that the has the problem of continuing to spark after the burner is lit. I guess the reigniton module is bad. Can someone advise me how to replace it, and where to get the part from at a good price?Thanks,Ian

The ignition module went out on my Viking range, fortunately for me it was covered under warranty. The repair tech mentioned that this was the first ignition module he saw go bad.
There is a link on this website "Buy Appliance Parts". You can check if they offer parts for your Viking range.
