Viking Professional range service/repair in SF?

My 15+ year old Viking oven is acting up; we smell gas when the oven is on. Is this something I need to get a "certified Viking service tech" to look at or will any licensed plumber do? I've read a Viking technician's service call costs $300! Also, any plumber you would recommend in San Francisco? TIA.

        ctssfo, thanks again for the referral. John Lee came by this morning and fixed our oven and gave our stove an overall check-up. Nice guy; someone who know what he is doing and does things in the good, "old fashioned" way. :)

      2. I've used Bay Area Appliance in San Mateo. They are good and seem to be charging a market rate for repairs. They don't repair all brands, but I believe Viking is one of the ones they service.
