Hello. I need some help with my Viking Gas Range. I have 4 burners and the ignitor for the front left burner won't stop clicking even after the burner is lit. All other ignitors/burners work fine. It's just this one burner/ignitor. Trying to solve this issue, I took out the ignitor and cleaned it well, and then dried it with the hairdryer. I then put it back but the problem didn't go away. To see if the ignitor was bad, I switched the ignitors in front and back burner. To my surprise, the front burner continued to click while the back burner had no issue. This confirmed that perhaps the problem was not the ignitor itself. To see if the problem was with the wire that connects to the ignitor, I also switched the wires to front and back burners. However, this time, both burners wont' stop clicking. I tried this with different ignitors and both burners continued to click even after the burner is lit. I then switched the wires back to their original position and just switched the ignitors. With this, back burner worked fine while the front burner continued to click like it did before. Based on these, I am extremely puzzled to figure out what the issue may be. Calling Viking customer support was a waste of time as they just stated that I need to hire a technician for this. If anyone has any idea on what the issue may be, please let me know. Thanks for your help in advance.
