I have a combo induction/electric viking 36" cooktop that has had trouble for one year. Bought in 2007 for my remodel and all was well until about a year ago. Approved repair company has replaced every part imaginable but the induction no longer works on the front right burner. I managed to convince viking that I shouldn't have to pay for all the time (they only cover parts on warranty after awhile) and eventually they agreed. Now, given the expense of nearly $2K on their end, they want to replace the entire unit but I can only choose between all induction or all electric no combos anymore - wonder why. All induction will mean none of my all-clad pots will work which is why I bought the combo in the first place. I wanted the wolf but it didn't have the combo option. So now I'll have a free replacement, great, but my pots - and I really do cook a lot - will cost a great deal to replace and what to do with the old ones? Garage until I move and can have gas and induction. What a pain. Apparently all the blogs that say avoid viking cooktops were right after all. The non-working induction is something I hope you got covered by warranty.
