Question about Viking 42 in Built In Professional Integrated Side by Side Refrigerator - VISB423
Model # VCSB483D
The bottom of the freezer drips and leaks condensation from the gasket. The gasket has been replaced but has not resolved this.
Condensation persists and accumulates down onto our beautiful new solid wood floors.
We have to babysit the refrigerator daily, wiping the water around the gasket.
Note: My fridge does not seem to be on the recall list as the serial # indicates a manufacture date is 08/22/05, beyond the date of 03/01/05 on their recall list.
It really sounds like the defrost timer is staying on all the time.Have the timer checked.This must be a on going problem with this brand,I am getting a lot of them.So many things could be the problem,but the defrost timer is what really stands out,the defrost timer,does just that,it defrost only a certain short period of time,or it is supposed to.That is how you get frost free.If I can help any more please ask,but have the defrost imer checked ,or replaced.

Tips for a great answer:
Hello Yellow, thank you for your post!
I understand that your Frigidaire freezer is dripping water out of the corner of the door. It is possible that with your power going out the heat may have caused the gasket to warp. Do you see any frost build-up? The water that is dripping could be coming from condensation within the freezer. I would recommend checking the gasket to see if it is allowing warm air to enter the freezer.
I recommend that you visually inspect the door gasket for defects such as gaps or tears. You can also use a dollar bill to test the door gasket. Place a dollar bill in between the door and the body of the freezer. If the dollar bill pulls out with no to little resistance, you may need to replace the door gasket. A faulty door gasket can allow warm air to enter the compartment and cause frost to condensation or a leak. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt
