Question about Viking Professional Series VCBB36 Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
After twice hitting the max button on both freezer and fridge in the span of 15 hours, the fridge is at 45F, and the in the freezer ice is not solid -slushhy.
Genesis: the heat alarm came on . It has done this before, and I have just silenced it. Sometimes, good for an hour, some times for months.
This time, it came on twice in 30 minutes, so I kept my finger on the alarm off button longer. I got three beeps. It really warmed up, and I checked the manual and realized I had put it in demo mode. Fridge temp 63F
I could not undo the demo mode, so I unplugged, waited 2 minutes, and plugged back in.
Next: hit max buttons for both fridge and freezer. After 12 hours, fridge temp is 45F, still a few degrees warmer than it should be at the lowest setting. Freezer still slushy a bit.
Background: we moved the fridge once in the last 6 months. It was tilted about 20 degrees at the top for about 2-3 minutes. Then reinstalled professionally. It just has never been as cold as it was before the move. It used to freeze the food in the fridge if the setting was set at maximum.
Any help will be appreciated as in my neck of the woods, a visit is $1o0, and minimum charges north of $250
Over the past several years my heat alarm would come on, first time I called a PROFESSIONALLY, he told me to unplug for 24HOURS, than start it. The solution worked for two years, just happened again, unplugged it for 24 hours, and it seems fine. My guess it must need to defrost. Good luck!
