Eaton Viking mini fridge not getting cold

I have a Eaton Viking mini fridge, the model number is RM0511-C. When I plug it in you can hear it come on and you can hear it running continuously but it never gets cold. I tried playing with the dial but that doesn't seem to do anything.
There is a small freezer and it's basically this metal plate that has a bunch grooves it in it. It looks like these are supposed to get cold and that is what cools the fridge but they aren't getting very cold but they do seem to be colder then the rest of the fridge.
Any ideas?

Yes. you certainly need to get a technitian out there. it seems that you are having a shortage of gas. if you have a gas shortage, then there must deffinitly be a gas leak somewhere.did you recently try to clean the plate that you mentioned with something shap? if so then you might have punctured it and that is where your gas leak might be. you do get special epoxies that you can do a quick fix, but you will still have to send it to a repair shop to regas and evacuate the unit. good luck

Eaton viking imperial electric,stove oven door will not close completelty; circa 1996. are replacement hinges still availible?


To the owner of the Eaton Viking stove RS3028W-1, yes you CAN get replacement hinges!
I too, have this stove model (circa 1996) with exactly the same problem and I have spent the past 18 months looking for replacement oven hinges. I was very frustrated at the thought of having to throw out a stove that cooks and bakes wonderfully and has not needed any repairs till now and having to buy one of the new subpar ones that constantly need repairs. Plus you can't do canning on the new stoves and the few remaining coil models are extremely poorly made.
I have found 2 places that carry the hinges.
1. Reliable Parts, 1-800-663-6060. This company is located in Montrea (St. Leonard), Quebec.
2. Appliance Shark, 1-800-663-1176. This company is located in Barrie, Ontario.
The part number for the hinge is: 318-024-741

I hope this is helpful, and may you have many more years of happy cooking on this great stove.

Mini fridge


Check where the thermostat probe is situated, it has to sit up against the evaporator to tell the thermo it's cold enough & to shut off.

Eaton Viking Fridge, Model RF1816RWO: Water collecting at bottom of fridge and kleaking out onto floor. Is there something I can do to stop this?


Clear the bottom of the refrigerator so you can get at the drain. then get a turkey baster and fill it with hot water. Insert it in the drain in the bottom and squeeze it cleaning the drain. Several applications will solve the problem, and do not forget the refrigerator side as well.

Good Luck,

Eaton viking fridge model RF1717


hi The limit switch is found only on frost-free refrigerators and freezers. Its function is to keep the defrost heating element from exceeding certain set temperatures. If a refrigerator has lots of frost in the freezer compartment, the problem may be the limit switch. However, other components -- the evaporator fan, the defrost timer, and the defrost heater -- can cause the same problem. Check these for malfunctions, as detailed below. If these parts are in working condition, the problem is most likely in the limit switch. Don't try to fix the limit switch yourself; call a professional service person for replacement.
