SOURCE: Viking refrigerator with bottom freezer always running

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 In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board.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.

SOURCE: 48 " viking ice maker tray frozen no ice

Try replacing
the icemaker unit. I used Supco model RIM943 and its working great. Found it online for $55 on line.

My Viking 48" ice maker has given me a little trouble too. The first ice maker assmble was replaced under warranty. It only came with a one year warranty so when it just went out again I thought I would take a look. Just like you I had no ice. It only take two screws to remove the ice making unit and a quick discount plug. I read up on the unit to trouble shoot it. My Ice maker had the ejection forks stuck in the down (in the ice cubes) postion indicating the unit was out of sync and needed to be completly replaced.

On another note:

I also had a proble with the flapper ice cube door on the outside ice dispenser. Ice cubes would get stuck in the door and would not drop into the cups. This was a lot tougher to fix, but I like figuring things out. Turns out I had some ice that got stuck in the flapper and some how it melted and froze back up to lock the flapper. When the motor came on it sheard a shear pin in a coupling just off the drive motor. I made a home made shear pin and put it back together and all work great now. It was a bit of work to take it all apart and to tell that the motor was good and the relay was working right.

SOURCE: how do i turn my ice maker off?

To switch off the ice maker simply pull out the ice bucket and remove and you will see a thin bar under the maker that you can simply push up until it clicks, hey presto its off!
If the leak continues look underneath the right hand door at the bottom and you will see where the waterline is attached, either turn the shut off tap (if one was fitted) or unscrew the pipe after disconnecting the mains water.
Good luck!

SOURCE: 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.

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.

No ice


put your finger into the mold of the icemaker or get a mirror and see if there is any water in it, if not, pour 5 oz. of water into the mold and wait approx. 2 hours, if ice dumps out then you have a water supply problem. the fill tube line entering the the mold could be iced up, if it is then your water valve maybe leaking and freezing up. also the water valve may not be opening up and may need to be replaced if it still doesn't dump out the water you poured in the you will have a problem with the icemaker itself
