Customer Question
Viking range, (VDSC dual fuel)...
Viking range, (VDSC dual fuel) four years old, been repaired multiple times. The oven bake and broil won't work, no heat. The gas burners on the cooktop work fine. The selector switch appears to be working, and when bake or broil is chosen, the oven fan starts up and runs for 20 seconds and shuts off. The elements don't heat up at all.

There are two indicator lights on the oven (Oven and Clean). Clean light stays on, except when I choose the "clean" cycle, where the fans starts up, the "clean" light blinks several times and goes off. Otherwise the "oven" light never lights, and the "clean" light stays lit regardless of which function is selected.

I'm hoping that somehow the oven is stuck on a clean cycle, but I have no idea how to reset it (or get it out of the "clean" cycle). I've reset the breakers, waiting a while before turning the power back on (hoping for a reset) and I've run the clean function and waited overnight (hoping that the oven would run through a cycle and reset).

What do you think? I would like to swap out components, but they are very expensive and would like an educated guess before I order any.

First you will need to ohm out the elements if they are ok then you will have to test the bake/broil relays on the control board. You will have to get a tech to come and do this there is alot involved in doing these tests. I would say that you need a new control board and this will fix your other problem that you have going on with the cleaning cycle.
