I have a Viking gas range VGIC 3654 QSS  natural gas, open burner

 

I just replaced all electrodes and the spark module

 

Spark is still inconsistent..eventually the burner lights, but it takes a while

 

Any ideas?

 

What is the correct distance from the electrode tip to the burner?

 

Is it possible that this might need adjustment?

Is the spark itself coming at an irregular timing or is the burner igniting at varying times from initial sparking?

Is it just one burner or are all affected?  Make sure burner and cap are clean and properly positioned for good gas flow.

Spark is coming at irregular time

 

Sometimes the burner ignites really fast, other times it takes a while

 

If I turn on the left front, it seems like the left rear sparks continually, and the left front sparks intermittantly

 

The burners are all clean

 

It seems to be the left front that behaves the oddest, but sometimes all of them take a long time to light

Are there any cracks or small nicks in the wiring from the spark module to the electrode? What about the wiring connection? Has putting in a new module and electrodes helped?

Wiring appears to be in good condition

 

Connections appear solid and not corroded

 

It seems to work the same after swapping spark module and electrodes
