I just started having the same problem with my 48" frig/ freezer Viking Designer series 2 years old- this has been a hot summer, we were not home much and the AC in the house was set higher 78 degrees so the frig I guess had to work a bit more - when I open the door to the frig water droplets acually run down the interior of the door and the box insde is always damp - I also have stress cracks in the interior shell of the frig - repairman is trying to get Viking to fix it- it has been a year now and it still is not fixed- the stress cracks were caused by improper insulation application to the inside of the frig according to the repair people- Also my handles have pealed - like the stainless steel is not really stainless steel - Any ways could the temp in the house changed - does not mean the frig should not work well - For what it costs, I expected better

If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air
check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

Hi. Sometimes the ice molds loose their lubrication and fail to release. To improve this, warm up the ice mold area with a hair blow dryer until the cubes release. Then dry the area and spray some PAM no stick food spray into the molds. This will lubricate the molds for several weeks. Joe

Viking built-in refrigerator/freezer:tube that fills the icemaker is freezing, so ice maker not working. Tech says because hooked up to RO, advised up pressure to 50. Of note, non-factory ice maker


The reason the fill tube freezes up is because the water valve is leaking by. 50PSI should be enough pressure. You most likely need a water valve.

Viking Frig ice maker


Depends how old the Viking is?
Older Vikings with icemakers with a arm on the side, simply lift
the arm up until locks.
Newer Vikings with Electronic Controls look for a "slide switch"
mounted on the right side of front interior trim. You will see a
red led light usually blinking on and off near the slide.

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.

Viking side by side makes very little ice


Your inlet tube that goes to the icemaker may be frozen. To Check: Shut off water supply to Fridge, disconnect the water line that goes to the icemaker at top back. Use a flexible item to insert in the water line connection. I used a zip tie. If the flexible item won't all the through to the ice maker, the line is frozen. Thaw out the tube from inside the freezer with a hair dryer. Re-connect everything, you now have ice . . . Solution #2: You may have to replace your "Water Inlet Valve" located at bottom right rear of Fridge. Easy to do, just follow the color codes, be sure and shut off the water.

do you notice alot of ice builup on the freezer back wall? if so you need to defrost it and more than likely replace the defrost terminator. make sure you remove the back panel and use boiling hot water to remove the ice( i normally use a coffee cup) part # 10442407 ONLY USE VIKING PARTS) others may tell you to use whirlpool or some other but DON'T
