Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

My viking drawer refrigerator quit working yesterday. Power is on, but no cooling. The manual says how to get into service diagnostics, which I did, and evidently the "mullion heater" was off. I reset it and the cooling turned on. I doubt if this fixed it.

There are one of two things,either the mullion heater is open and needs replace,the defrost thermostat located near the heater,the defrost control is not supplying power to the heater/secondly it could be the ptc overload on the compressor that is bad and not powering the compressor and needs replacing

Doesn't cool


Hi, Yes, If the evaporator was not frozen over then I agree with you. The unit has lost its refrigerant charge. The only thing you can do is to have a licensed refrigeration man find the leak, repair it and recharge it or replace the refrigerator. If the evaporator is frozen over the defrost timer would be the problem. In this case, manually defrost it and it will be good for a few days until you get it replaced. kstfas

Cool Select Pantry, to relocate per manual instructions, doesn't slide all the way in.


Cool select Pantry
To remove the pantry - Pull the pantry out to full extension. Tilt up the front side of pantry and pull straight out.
To relocate the pantry - Push the rails to the back of the Refrigerator. Place the drawer onto the rails and slide the pantry back until it is in place.

before install they ask to push the rails to the back of the refrigerator
should be no problem

The refrigerator is 2 yrs old and has completely quit cooling in both the refrigerator and freezer.


I looked at your wiring diagram. This ice box has automatic defrost controls. That means the temp is regulated by a computer board. Their are some diagnostics you can perform on some of these models.
Your ice box appears to be a midrange control model. Click HERE for a diagnostics video

Broken drawer


Parts and accessories are quite expensive for appliances. Some factories may be able to sell you the part cheaper than online distributors. Check the contact information of the manufacturer from the user manual and try to contact them. If you got the appliance with the broken part or cracker, they may send another one for free (They may ask you to pay for the S&H) - If the manufacturer doesn't sell the part, they should provide you contact information where to get the part.

Viking Refrigerator problem


Try this my Mother had a similar problem, make sure the vents are not covered inside the fridgerator between the bottom and top so the cold air is able to circulate between them.
