Tip & How-To about Viking VCBB363L Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
Mine fridge Viking VCBB363L Bottom Freezer Refrigerator.
Took a cell phone camera in video mode and put it in the fridge to see if the light was going out when the door was closed.
Turns out. it wasn't.
This causes the lghts on the left to go out. However, the light on the right stays on and warms up the fridge.
Top section air grill. 5 1/4 hex screws.. remove the grill you'll notice door's light switch on right side. a steel spring attached to the switch. When fridge's hinge arm closes the arm pushes on this guy and pushing in the switch button and shuts off the lights.
you can move this with your finger.
In my case switch has a little purple button.
take two pair of 3 in needle nose pliers and CAREFULLY hold center of spring and bend the end nearest you to the left.
You don't have to go crazy Just a bit.
then get you camera ready and check out your work.
Results after you've succeded, replace your parts, and notice after 10 minutes the lights all come on, the alrms stop and the fridge cools normally.
and you saved 200.00
