Question about Viking DTBB363 Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
First the unit had ice build up in back on coils. I called for repair no return call. Turn off remove back panel allow to defrost good for 3 months. Hot humid days in VA condensation around freezer door water pool on floor. Most resently the unit stopped cooling, top and bottom. I have called 3 repair people in my area no return calls. Where can I get a repair manual or is there somebody out there who would like this unit. It is a great paper weight.

SOURCE: Defrost condensate not draining
Make sure the water goes down the drain quickly. If the drain is a little clogged it may not be draining fast enough, letting it freeze before it drains. I use compressed air at a low psi to clear the drain from the freezer compartment. Does the refrig have an ice maker?? If the water is spilling over the fill tube behind the freezer panel it will also ice over the drain. Also sometimes drains just ice up for no apparent reason. I deice them and then they work fine. You can also take a piece of romex wire (the solid copper strand type) use the ground wire (bare copper) or strip the insulation off the black or white wires and loop the wire over the defrost heater and down into the drain hole. This will help any ice that builds up around the drain to melt in the defrost cycles. Let me know how it turns out.

Sounds like a defrost problem. Check to see if
there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not
defrosting as it should.

you have a clogged drain, it is either clogged with ice or some kind of debris, thaw the freezer out and push a length of weed trimmer line down the drain. The drain is accessible by removing the back wall of the inside of the freezer. If there is no clog then the drain may be freezing up, if that is the case, take a piece of 14 gauge romex wire and loop it several times around the heating element at the bottom of the evaporator and push a few inches of it into the drain, this will get hot and transfer heat when it goes into a defrost cycle which is where the water is coming from in the first place

If freezer is icing up, you might have a defrost problem. Frost free models have a heating element that is controlled by a timer to automatically defrost ice, defrost timer turns on defrost heating element every 12 hours to melt ice in freezer and allow good air flow.
You can test defrost element with an ohm meter(located inside freezer coils-will have two wires going to a plug connection), if OK replace defrost timer (located in various places depending on make and model
