Question about Viking DDBB363 Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

I have a side by side Viking refrigerator and after leaving the door open a little too long the lights went out in both the refrigerator and freezer. I figured that they would go back on automaticlly after closing the door and letting the temperature get back in the normal range but they did not. How do I reset them??? Thanks!

Remove the center grill of the top grill and shut the power off and back on, the lights should reset

When the lights are working open the Ref door then close the freezer drawer, watching to see if the light in the freezer shuts off. It should shut off when the freezer is about 1" from closing. If it stays on until the door is fully closed then there is a problem with the light switch in the freezer.

Normally when you leave the doors open until the lights shut off, it should reset when both doors are closed

    That's dumb. I fixed it. Unplug your fridge (cut power) and turn power back on. Laugh with roommate. BAM!

My interior lights in my Viking VCSB423 are out, I tried replacing 2 of the bulbs, it went out after door was open for an extended period of time,(like 10 minutes)


sandra, not being sarcastic but why keep the fridge open for ten minutes? It can cause other problems too. Try not to keep the fridge open for long after bulb change and see if it works. Good luck.

Our new 48" Viking side by side does not feed ice cubes adequately. If you need several glasses of cubes it stops feeding and when one opens the freezer door they are piled up and fall all over the floor....


I experienced the same problem several times with our VCSB483DSS also.

What I found was that the ice come down the chute side way and got stuck at the flap in the door. As you continue to press for ice, the machine pushes more ice & they all back up in side the chute and in the door, ready to dump on unsuspecting person who open the freezer door.

I think the the problems are:
1 - over application of foam insulation in the chute pathway in the door.
2 - possible bad timing on the flap opening causing the falling ice to get stuck.

My solution for the past 6 years:
1 - clean out the over application of foam insulation - this reduce the incident frequency from once a month to once or twice a year.
2 - inform my family member that if while you pressed for ice, and the ice is not dropping, but you hear the motor still cranking away, stop pressing for ice immediately. Stick you finger up the dispenser to make sure the flap is open, and push the ice to un-stuck them. And finally, be prepare to get 2 cups full of ice.

Viking may make professional quality fridge (13 years experience in restaurant business), but ice & water dispenser is not their strong point.

Freezer door stop broke off


Take your remaining pieces to a Servall store. They carry parts for all appliances or do an internet search.

If you can not reach the parts easily, try to get a serial number and model off the Fridge and check the internet for a Viking dealer near you.

Left door open on Sub zero model 650


It went into self protection mode. Just leave it closed and when the compressor cools down enough, it will start. Once the ref starts to cool, the lights and such will come back on.

All of this assumes that no failure was caused by the long run times when the door was open

Light bulb in new bottom freezer model


Maybe the little man inside that shuts it off is on vacation. Just kidding! With the door open, look for a little trigger/switch that shuts the light off when you close the door, press it and see if the light goes out. Out of curiosity, what wattage bulb do you have in there that would melt the cover. It should be no larger than 40w, 25w being the best.
