Customer Question

Hello, I have a viking VGSU5366BSS. When plugged in, all the burners try to ignite when the gas is not on. I've determined that when I have the front right and front left ignited, then it will stop trying to ignite. I've replaced all the o-rings, re-seated the wire connection to the ignitor & cleaned all the burners and ignitor.Before trying to replace the ignitor box itself, I wanted to see if there is another step I should consider.Any advise is appreciated.Regards,
Roger

You actually have a bad burner switch one of the switches that are behind the burner knobs and trim. You need to check those one is stuck closed causing that issue.

Thanks... Thinking its one of two issues. 1) Shorted burner switch or 2) Bad ignitor module. Trying to see how i can narrow down.

Likely not a bad module just unplug one wire from each switch if it stops bad switch
