Viking VGSC range test w/o gas

01 April 2013 - 09:36 AM

Learning the unknown enemy:


I'm new to viking ranges, but found a 15 year old one on craigslist for 500 dollars so I decided to give it a shot for myself for once.  Anyway, gas lines are being put in at my place next month, but I have the range sitting around.  If I give it juice, is there a way to test range functions without gas?  Continuity is an obvious and easy test that I will do, and testing the range top burners for spark will be a no-brainer without gas, but manual says the bake/broil control goes into lockout if its flame sensor doesn't pick anything up for 10 seconds, so I wouldnt be able to check igniter amperage without really fast hands (and definitely not at full current within only 10 seconds).  Any tips on this?
