Question about Viking Professional VCBB363SS Stainless Steel Refrigerator

1 Answer

Light bulb burned out

Left the door ajar and it blew out light bulbs. Everyone says to unplug but the fridge is built in. Do you think if I shut the main breaker it would work? Also it blew out the freezer lights as well even though the fridge door was the only one left open. Thanks

    Hi -- The door's screw at the bottom to make it a 90 or 120 degree angle fell out. My husband screwed it back in and when he did that, the door was beeping that it was open and then the lights burned out. I have a VCSB423SS, by the way. Not what is indicated on this problem. How can the one light bulb I replaced be working and the other 3 brand new bulbs not be working? And how can the freezer lights not work if that door wasn't opened? The ice tray light is still working. Thank you so much!

Hi,

Did you have a hinge kit recently replaced? If so call them back they missed something. If not, look into the light circuit a if it goes to ground this light issue would happen. Most of these issues I found in the upper section behind the upper grills. I hope this helps

Door warning says hi temp, door adjar,light out


Good Afternoon Floyd,

I see that you are having trouble with your Frigidaire freezer, model# FFU17K1CW, stating "HI TEMP" and that the door ajar light is out. The model number that has been provided does not show that it has a "door ajar" light. What I recommend would be giving your appliance a hard reset, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at the circuit breaker for 2-3 minutes. If you are still having trouble with the HI TEMP light showing, please respond back with your model number which is shown inside your refrigerator on either the right or left hand wall so I may better assist you. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Door ajar warning light/interior light won't come on


Good Afternoon bibliophilel, based on the symptoms you are describing, may I suggest resetting the refrigerator. This can be done by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait roughly ten minutes and then turn the unit back on. If the issue persists, then more than likely the light socket and/or the door switch that triggers the bulb and alarm are faulty. In this regard, I would suggest contacting an Authorized Service Technician that will be able to assist you in the exact diagnosis of the appliance and repair.

Do you recall if the door opened easier than normal that morning? its possible, but not likely, that the door was open, but its kind of hard to make those frech doors stay open even partially. you may have a bad light switch not shutting light off. is any of the plastic around the light bulb melted?
I have to think its something with the light bulb, since you say it was hot inside. thats a far cry from the not really cold i normally hear from my customers.

some french door fridges use a sort of finger mechanism located at the top outer corner of doors, if this breaks, the doors might not close easily by themselves, or worse, not stay open. without personal inspection, i cant give definitive answer

Light bulb blew out. Put in replacement bulb, which will not turn on in frig, but will work in a lamp. Is there a fuse top replace or a circuit breaker to reset?


No there is not a fuse I am sorry to say, you are probably dealing with a broken wire or shorted socket. If you are brave you can unplug the fridge and remove the screws holding the control box(plastic casing the light is set into) and check the 2 wires going to the light for breaks or burns. Also make sure your door switch is opening and closing to allow the light to come on.

Power and no lites in refrig/freezer; beeping


depending on age of unit, the problem may lie in the light bulb,well the door closing anyway, the newer unit s actuall will shut down all interior lights, in the evnet that teh door is left open for more then 2-3 min, so its possible that a light switch is not being activated so the uit thinks the door is open and has shut down the rest of lights, cooling however does continue normally.
