Viking range knobs turn continuously - won't light or turn off (VGCIC48566SS)

8 posts in this topic

A babysitter at my home attempted to make my son dinner last night and somehow managed to take two of my range knobs (Viking 6-burner w/griddle - VGCIC48566SS) and render them unusable. When I got home, she showed me that the knobs now turn around continuously in both direction without much resistance at all, and without having to push them in. It's as if they are stripped. The other knobs stop firmly at off and high. These two, now, do not. I tried turning them many, many, times in both directions to see if I could get anything to "catch." Occasionally I will hear the ignition spark, but can't keep the knob in a position to keep it going long enough to light. One of the burners, attached to one of the two broken knobs, was lit at a very low flame and I could not get it to turn off. I ended up cutting the gas to the range. Any ideas of what happened and how I might fix this?

True dat! And for the life of me, I have yet to figure out how the crackheads at Viking arrived at the conclusion that their shoddy, overpriced, sorry excuses for appliances are deserving of such elitism and exclusivity.

I typed in the wrong model, BTW, it's actually the VGIC4856GSS

Knobs aren't broken...so it's something else. I guess the gas valves???
