If the igniter continues to glow for the griddle, but the gas won't release, then check the amp draw of the igniter. I know you just replaced the igniter, but you have a very uncommon issue so I would make sure the igniter is drawing 3.2 amps to open the oven gas safety valve. If not, then return the igniter and get another one. If you are drawing 3.2 amps, replace the safety valve because as it warms up, it's failing to open. You can order parts at AllVikingParts.com if you call them and have them look up the part.
