I thoguht I had posted the solution. repeating now ask for estimates/ inference from thre persons and deccide for only low cost of repair. If your fridge is more than 5 years old do not proceed specially if the pumping of the compressor is down. Go for a good exchange with a the modern enerrgy effficient models as you can choose from good economic/ luxury ranges and give you about 5-7 years warranty.Invest Well. Good Luck

MY viking side by side refrigerator isent working


If only a year old it will be fully covered by warranty. Meantime try disconnecting from the mains power supply for 30mins (dont worry the frozen items wont be affected for this short a period) then switching on again, as this may trigger the motherboard into normal mode
Good luck

Side byrefrigerator runs but not cold. Freezer is


take everything out of it, and let it thaw for 24 hours, using towels and whatever to clean up the water......then plug it back in, if it still does it, like 2 days later, it's broke, if it doesn't it was just the coil in the back that froze up. Happened to me.

This can happen if the fan motor in the freezer compartment is bad. Causes the freezer section to freeze up and you will not get air circulating, so no cooling. Check the fanmotor

Fridge/ Freezer not cold


My fridge started making a weird noise not too long ago. Now the fridge isn't cold and everything in the freezer is melting. The read out still says that everything is the right temp, but the melted ice tells me otherwise. Recently my daughter found out how to operate the buttons and has been pushing them a lot, but we change them quickly.

I would have the refrigerator / freezer checked out by a serv tech mainly because if it is a compressor, this would not be something that can be done by as customer, but it could be something internal like a fan or a fan motor that blows the cold air or a bad thermostat or sending unit – the weird noise is something internal that really should be check out by a serv tech before you lose everything as far as food, etc. – the refrigerator is a sealed unit and is hard for a customer to service unless they have serviced the unit before.

Bottom freezer not staying cold


One of two things. When you open the freezer drawer, do you hear a fan running? If not, that's the problem. The Evaporator fan. Its' job is to circulate cold air throughout the entire cabinet. Without it, things get toasty. If not the Evap Fan, it'll be the sealed system... meaning that it's developed a leak and freon is escaping (not harmful for you or your Family). If it's just under 5 years old, this will be a warranty repair. Over 5? Bad news... it'll cost ALOT to have it repaired.
