SOURCE: My Viking VUWC140 wine cooler

Before replacing any part, first try manual defrost procedure. Unplug the wine cooler for approx 4 hours non stop.This will defrost all ice manually and this resets the internal defrost board and its assembly parts.Then after 24 hours reconnect the units power cord and turn it on, set it to normal temperature.It will take approx 6 hours get it normal cooling cycle.Then check, if its still building up ice, then it can be faulty defrost thermostat or faulty defrost main board.By pass the thermostat terminals by connecting a jumper wire.Connect two terminals of thermostat together and then see if its still building ice inside.If yes then board needs to be replaced.The thermostat located near the coils.Its a thin, twin wire connector, connected near coils.---------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Door seal for a viking beverage center/wine cooler VUWC140

What did you need to know? If it fell out it just pushes back in. Press it in with your thumbs. If you want to replace it its very easy to change. Just pull out the old one and put the new one against the door and push it back into the tracks.

Viking Wine Cellar Temperature Near-Freezing

Viking wine coolers are made by Marvel.They all had issues with freezing the contents. If you replace the electronic cold control system it will be fine.If you don't, it will freeze the wine popping the corks and leaking in the unit.If you get the parts from Marvell they are much cheaper.

Wine cooler makes noise and runs hot

The price looks fine for my area its about a 3 hour job done properly. you should consider a new wine cooler and cut your losses because if their only replacing the compressor they should be replacing the cap tube and liquid drier if the cap tube is not replaced could be a waste of money

Change light in wine cooler

Took everything out and got on my back with flashlight to find a tiny screw holding lens in place.  Found that a little night light fit and worked fine.  Wish the manual had a simple direction to fix the problem.
