Double ovens on Viking stove will not light. igniters glow…

Customer Question
Double ovens on Viking...

Double ovens on Viking stove will not light. igniters glow and the burner will light if you blow into the hole on them.

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Viking is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

I'm not at home, the stove is over 20 years old. Its a white 6 burner and griddle top with double ovens. Not sure of model number

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

I called a technician they will come on Thursday, but I'm not convinced they are interested in working on it. Said he was concerned he couldnt find parts for a viking that old

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Its a great oven and I'd love to try and fix it. Not sure what else to mention. any ideas?

The igniters are weak and are not drawing ample current through the valve bimetal. The igniters will need to be replaced, be sure to replace them at the same time!

The link below is to the part you will need!
