Redondo Beach Appliance Repair Tips

Viking electric or gas cooktops are versatile and convenient. As they are separate from the oven component, Hi-Tech Appliance Repair can install one in almost any countertop. This enables you to utilize them where they best fit your lifestyle. Although they are very reliable, a Viking cooktop may experience occasional problems.

Electric Burner Fails to Heat

If your electric burners fail to come on, ensure that you have sufficient power to the cooktop. Verify that the unit is plugged into a working outlet and that the circuit breaker isn’t tripped to the off position. Reset the circuit breaker and verify that your house has power. If your burners still don’t work, contact Redondo Beach Appliance Repair to identify and repair the problem.

Gas Burners Spark but Fail to Ignite

Burners need a steady supply of gas to ignite and remain on. If your burners fail to light, check your gas supply line to ensure that the valve is in the “On” position. After several attempts to light a burner, you should smell gas. If not, contact the gas company to see if there is a service interruption. As a safety precaution, if you do smell gas, Redondo Beach Appliance Repair recommends that you do not
attempt to light the burners until the odor dissipates.

The Gas Flame is Erratic

Another possible problem is that once the burner does light you will have large or erratic flames. These flames cause improper cooking. The flames should be low, steady and blue. Dirty or clogged burner gas ports cause the flames to be yellow and erratic. Turn the burner off and allow it to cool before cleaning the burner ports. Gently remove any clogs with a straight pin.

If these quick troubleshooting tips do not resolve the problem with your Viking cooktop, contact the professionals of Hi-Tech Appliance Repair. We will examine your cooktop to ensure that it is installed correctly and diagnose other possible reasons for the issues with your cooktop.
