Question about Viking Refrigerators

1 Answer

1. Not making ice 2. Freezer temperature not cold enough

Seems like I'm having 2 problems with my fridge. 1) Ice maker has stopped making ice for about a month now. It is a mechanical model. There are some ice sits on top of the maker, but doesn't unload to the bucket. 2) Temperature in the freezer seems not as cold as it should. Still under freezing point, measures around 25-28F.

    And I forgot to mention. The temperature in the fridge compartment is fine. It's very cold. The only problem I have is with the freezer compartment.

SOURCE: frost in top freezer - water leaking in refrigerator - ice maker not working

Hi,

If your frig is freezing the food in the chilling compartment as well as the freezer, it means one thing--its thermostat isn't shutting down the compressor when the set temperature has been met. You stated that you had it checked by, I assume, a professional service technician. Being a retired tech myself, I'm surprised that he didn't check this out and discuss it with you. Check the temperature IN THE FREEZER! If it is less than 10 degrees F., turn the thermostat to "warmer". If the temp in the freezer is 10 degrees F., leave it alone and go to the temp control in the frig, which is a damper that controls cold air flow from the freezer compartment. Close this damper until your temperature in the upper part of the refrigerator is 38 to 40 degrees F. If these efforts don't shut down the compressor and correct your problem, then the answer is simple. Your thermostat is bad and needs to be replaced. It isn't expensive, and should cost you less than the labor for a tech to install it. Good luck!

SOURCE: I have a bottom drawer freezer Samsung

The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze, blocking or diverting the water.. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

SOURCE: Ice maker filling with water but not freezing into cubes.

Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

SOURCE: Whirpool "gold" model GSF26C5EXW00 is

Our Whirlpool Gold model number GSF26C5EXW00 had the same problem. The ice maker seemed to randomly work sometimes, and not other times. Sometimes if I moved my food around in the fridge, it would make the ice maker work. Anyway, two service calls later, the Whirlpool tech told us that it is a VERY common problem with this model (which is exclusive to Lowe's apparently) and that the water line just freezes on it's own. Beware! We now have water dripping down the back of our freezer (inside the freezer) and it's sizzling on something at the bottom of the freezer. I've contacted Whirlpool and told them it's a lemon. Literally 11 months old and so many problems? We're demanding that they replace our fridge with another model. I don't trust his one at all...

KITCHEN AID REFRIGERATOR PROBLEM We bought a used Kitchen Aid fridge YKSRS22Q (1993), the ice maker is not working but water does work. What should we check to see why the ice maker doesn't work?


Ice makers work off of temperature. If it's not cold enough in the freezer it won't work. Check the temperature with a thermometer, it should be 0 to +10F

Kenmore elite ice maker stopped making ice,


There are many things that can go wrong with a Kenmore refrigerator ice maker. Your ice maker may be leaking. It may not make any ice at all, or the ice that comes out smells or has an odd appearance. The problem may have an easy solution, or it may require a technician's expertise. The troubleshooting tips in this article will minimally make you aware of what is likely the source of the problem. You may be able to fix the problem yourself and save a bundle.

When it Won't Make Ice
1 Get a thermometer and see how cold it is in there. If your freezer is fewer than 17 degrees F, it won't make ice. The freezer temperature setting may be too high or the thermometer is broken and not calibrated correctly. If adjusting the temperature fails to work, call a Kenmore technician.
2 Determine if your water fill spout in the freezer is plugged with ice. If so, no new ice can be made. Try clearing it out or melting the ice by running a hair dryer on it for a few minutes.
3 Turn your refrigerator around to look at the back side to see if water is getting to the water inlet valve behind the fridge. If the water is not properly connected, there's no water to make ice.
4 Use an ohm meter to test for coil continuity. If the ohm meter shows there is no continuity, then you will need to replace the water inlet valve.

Hope thiswould help you

Have a good day : )

Ice maker stopped working, plus fridge not cold, but freezer o.k.


I would check that fan motor in the freezer section is running. it distributes cold air from freezer into refrig section also if this motor is running the top portion of freezer will not get cold enough to allow ice production. the motor is easy to repl and is mod# specific you should be able to buy one online.
