Question about Viking Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

Hood not getting power. Authorized viking tech said I need to get an installer to remove the hood before he could see what the problem is. Is this typical of techs to not remove to troubleshoot?

Electrician said there is power to unit... Viking Tech said no power to fan nothing he can do until its removed.

It depends on the installation: larger hoods, intricate installs and liability concerns could all raise this concern by a tech. It should be simple to begin by checking for electric at the wiring connection inside the hood terminal box without removing the hood from the cabinet. If there is no power supplied to the hood then an electrician should correct the fault in the house wiring.

SOURCE: fan switch not work - Viking 3048SS brand new range hood

I did some more troubleshooting and figured out how to get the plate off that houses the switches. I disconnected the fan switch and created a safe electrical by-pass. I re-connected the main power supply and sure enough, the fan worked. Issue = defective switch. Currently looking to order replacement. Problem solved.

Will not sew straight stitches


If the needle moves side to side easily with power turned on, the sewing head has been damaged. An experienced Viking Service Tech can probably repair the sewing head. A replacement is about $600. You can find your nearest local Authorized Viking Dealer at the Viking website - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/us and click on the 'Locate a Dealer' icon.

Need new belt for 1993 Viking Husqvarna sewing machine. Where can I get the belt and how do I install it?


An authorized husqvarna viking dealer can order you a replacement belt and install it for you. To install the belt, the covers have to be removed and there are lots of hidden screws. 3rd party parts are available from various resellers online. Just Goggle Search or try ebay but you still have the problem of installing it. Suggest you take it to a local authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer for them to order the original part (if they don't have one on hand). You can find your nearest authorized dealer by clicking on the "Dealer's" link at their website - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com

Vents in the Viking hood fall out on their own


Remove the filters.
The slot that the filters sit in at the rear edge, can be removed, it is basically hooked into place.

When you remove it you will see that the sides are different, reinstall it with the smaller edge hooked thus leaving the larger edge to hold the filters in place.

I hope this is clear.

Fan switch not work - Viking 3048SS brand new range hood


There is the on off switch and the blower control that controls the speed of the fan. It is more than likley the blower control that would need replaced.

There could also be a wire disconnected in the hood.

Viking hood damper


Remove the blower and reach up into the duct through the back flow damper and put weather stripping on the 2 edges that are chattering, it will greatly reduce the noise
