Tool was worth it, no scratches very efficient. you could make one based on the picture. they added some rubber coating in a few places, like liquid electrical tape

The all viking parts rep said some individuals use a strap wrench which probably would work pretty well too.


A tip: the burner base was was stuck down, I used a plastic ID card (medical or library card) to slip between the pieces, worked easy and no scratches.

I have the same problem for the same model Viking.  I can see the module located inside the range top but I do not have a service manual to show how to access it.  Since it is located between counters on the wall, I was hoping someone could share a manual or explain if it is accessed from the top by removing the burners etc or can I pull it out and access from a rear panel.   Based one what I could see through the small opening, I don't wee where there is clear access from the rear.   Any help would be greatly appreciated.

See if you can use this manual.Page 21 https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B-i5KqMA2RZwNUJEM3VjRWNhVHM/view?usp=sharing

I could thank you.   Mine is a bit different and probably older.   I have a six burner and the module is not attached to the back but just sitting in the area under the burners.   Based on these pictures, I might be able to get to it from the back if the wires are long enough to pull it to that back hole.

Thanks again dab147315.  I decided to do the job myself based on the instructions you supplied.   Hardest part was taking off the oven door to lighten the unit before moving on sliders.   We have wood floors, so I took the six cast iron burner racks and the door off.  Good God the door is a combination lock to get off and on.   Saved 300.  and some attitude from the only guy in my area that works on the Viking.   I understand Viking not puts some of the repair items in the front, which would be a much better place for access.  Anyway thanks again.  We are all happy to not hear the clicking.  Module did show on one post where it seem to have overheated and that was the side the burners quite working.  Three out of six would light but keep clicking and the other three would not spark at all.  Put the new module in and all six work like they should now.
