Remove the filters.
The slot that the filters sit in at the rear edge, can be removed, it is basically hooked into place.

When you remove it you will see that the sides are different, reinstall it with the smaller edge hooked thus leaving the larger edge to hold the filters in place.

I hope this is clear.

The filters on our viking hood keep falling out. Seems like when a little grease builds up on the ledge of the hood the filter comes crashing down on the stove. Anyone else having this issue? Better yet...


I'm having the same problem, and I'm fed up. One of these days the filter is going to fall into a boiling pot and potentially seriously injuring someone. I'm surprised this isn't a recall issue with these hoods. I've temporarily fixed it by applying exhaust muffler tape to the filter and hood where it rests ( on the area closest to the wall). This is a temporary fix, however. I do plan on taking this serious problem up with Viking. This is a serious design flaw that can be potentially very dangerous.

Viking hood Lights out


Part PE050033 no longer exists. It's now two parts: PE050141 for the light and PE050156 for the fan. You must first remove all of the small switches then pull off the front panel to tighten the small nuts that hold the new units in place.

Clicking sound with the unit off.


Its probaly the duct. There is a little hinged door which is in the ducking right where the fan connects to your duct's, somtimes they play in the wind. I have heard this problem before. Is the clicking perfectly sycronized?
