Viking 24" Griddle Accessory Advice

Ok, your solution seems to work! I had some 1/4" copper tubing and built a frame inside. At first, it seemed to work right away and then went back to the starting sequence. Tried turning the hood on first, that worked for awhile and then- the re-starting. I gave myself a little time off to cool down- that a Viking $350 griddle would have been on the design table and not work- gave it one more try- started the burners in a diagonal pattern on "low" and no problems! I've since been turning the heat, up to medium and so far so good! Your metal block sounds like a great alternative and maybe I'll go a little higher- but felt like it took James Bond trying to disarm an explosive to make this thing work! I will also revisit Viking support and see if they can figure it out on their own! Thank so much- hope you're enjoying the 4th!

Viking 24" Griddle Accessory Advice

right, well one would think a Viking product should work on a Viking range... I'm also able to pursue this on warranty. Their support number doesn't seem to recognize the griddle having this problem, so we'll see...

I will definitely pursue this with Viking- can't imagine parting with the range though...

Viking 24" Griddle Accessory Advice

It doesn't fit perfectly over the middle 4 but gave it a try- seems that would help airflow, but still struggled to stay lit- thanks!

Viking 24" Griddle Accessory Advice

We just purchased a Viking 24" Griddle that goes over the top of 4 burners of our 8 burner stove. When the burners underneath the griddle are lit, the normal clicking you hear when a burner is being lit, continues. One burner may lite, then another will appear to be burning, but start the clicking sequence as if it's being re-lit. I'm wondering if anyone has experienced this problem with a 24" or 12" griddle accessory? I spoke to Viking and they referred me to local service as a warranty issue and the service person didn't have a clue, except it may not be getting enough air flow. Otherwise, the burners work fine, can light all 8 at once without a problem. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
