Hi all:

Recently all 4 ingnitors started sparking continuously. It would appear that a new spark module is required (based on other searches on the internet).

Question is, while waiting for said module to show up, is there a way to disconnect the spark module so that I can still use the oven, while lighting the burners manually?

Also, how exactly does one gain access to the wiring under the cooktop? Unscrewing the 4 screws on the faceplate does not seem to amount to much.

Thanks in advance


Garth

Do not see too many Vikings, but, did you check the ignition switches at the fuel valves??? Most gas systems have the ignition switches in series,...... Generically speaking............. I.E. Turn one on and all spark, forget to turn one off, they all spark....... A failed switch in the 'off' position, ( but a closed circuit ), all ignitors spark...... Hopefully, a more informed Viking tech. will enlighten you...............
