So, I have here a VGIC3666BSS, date of manuf. 031308. The problem is that the oven igniter works but the oven will not stay lit. I have a short video if I can post I will. I have already replaced the single igniter (U shaped burner tube), and it will light for about 3 seconds then I hear a clicking sound and the gas stops flowing completely and the oven flame stops. I read about an oven safety valve in another thread. Sounds like that may be it though I don’t know the PN for that. Help.

Hi,

Yes, you can upload the video to Youtube and post the Youtube link here. Or share your video per Google Drive, Dropbox, or Microsoft OneDrive and post the share link here.

What's the part number of the single igniter you already replaced?

Jake,
The bake ignition electrode PN is VKPB040170. Bad news: I also found a wire harness with several wires that had some of their insulation chewed away from a rodent-like source. Ugh. So, now it looks like I’ll be needing one of those. Trying to find how to us load the pics I have. I’ll see what I can do so hopefully you can see.

Yes, I see.

I can't locate any parts for Viking online.

You will need to call them and ask where you can get that wire harness at.

That maybe the problem your having with it not staying lite.
