Why does my freezer located on the top of the gallery refrigerator have frost in it?


Check the freezer door gasket! Frost build up along the front edge of the freezer indicates a poor or broken seal. It could also be packaging or plastic bags on top of the freezer getting into the door opening and allowing moist room air into the freezer--make sure nothing on top of the refrigerator is getting into the door or jamming it open.

Viking freezing evaporator coil


im not sure if still is the case.but there used to be a timer that shuts off the refridge so it self defrost. it is set to do this 1ce a day so the ice or frost does not build up.it is called a defrost timer. if it fails it will not shut down the fridge.most of them are near the front behind the grate.

hi The limit switch is found only on frost-free refrigerators and freezers. Its function is to keep the defrost heating element from exceeding certain set temperatures. If a refrigerator has lots of frost in the freezer compartment, the problem may be the limit switch. However, other components -- the evaporator fan, the defrost timer, and the defrost heater -- can cause the same problem. Check these for malfunctions, as detailed below. If these parts are in working condition, the problem is most likely in the limit switch. Don't try to fix the limit switch yourself; call a professional service person for replacement.

Viking freezer frost build-up


Sounds like a defrost problem. Check to see if there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.
  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer/control board
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items.
  • if you already checked this and think it is a different problem then let me know, i will help you figure it out.
