SOURCE: Viking freezer frost build-up

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.

  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer/control board
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items.
  • if you already checked this and think it is a different problem then let me know, i will help you figure it out.

SOURCE: Water dispenser freezing on viking refrig

One thing that can cause this s the removal of the styrofoam block that surrounds the water reservoir. A lot of people think this is just for shipping but it is necessary to prevent the water freezing.

If it is missing it ill need to be replaced.

First off, I ran into this blog about some Viking models:

Here is more recall info:

Here is a manual for your frige:
http://www.retrevo.com/support/Viking-Range-DFSB423-Refrigerators-manual/id/6727bh729/t/2/
Couldn't find a fix on the net reported, but it's going to be the control for the dispenser door, and that's not going to be fun to work on. You might call a local repair shop to see how much.
Otherwise, bug Viking, since they've had a lot of problems with this type of thing- maybe they can assist you.
Good luck, hope this helps, and thanks for using FixYa.

Our new 48" Viking side by side does not feed ice cubes adequately. If you need several glasses of cubes it stops feeding and when one opens the freezer door they are piled up and fall all over the floor....


I experienced the same problem several times with our VCSB483DSS also.

What I found was that the ice come down the chute side way and got stuck at the flap in the door. As you continue to press for ice, the machine pushes more ice & they all back up in side the chute and in the door, ready to dump on unsuspecting person who open the freezer door.

I think the the problems are:
1 - over application of foam insulation in the chute pathway in the door.
2 - possible bad timing on the flap opening causing the falling ice to get stuck.

My solution for the past 6 years:
1 - clean out the over application of foam insulation - this reduce the incident frequency from once a month to once or twice a year.
2 - inform my family member that if while you pressed for ice, and the ice is not dropping, but you hear the motor still cranking away, stop pressing for ice immediately. Stick you finger up the dispenser to make sure the flap is open, and push the ice to un-stuck them. And finally, be prepare to get 2 cups full of ice.

Viking may make professional quality fridge (13 years experience in restaurant business), but ice & water dispenser is not their strong point.

Water underneath the freezer section


Please check for the water passage beneath the freezer. There will be a small pipe and there is a possibility that that pipe path is blocked with ice or dirt.

Ice not being dispensed


I have the same make and model. I had to replace the Motherboard. I bought it online $100 and it is really easy to replace. I heard from my neighbors who had the same fridge that they got the $100 refund from GE because it was a manufacturing defect.

There is a water leak inside the freezer


You need to remove the bottom two baskets, or more to make space. Using a hairdryer, defrost the back area. You should be able to locate a drain hole in the center below the freezer coils. This drain hole is connected on the outside to a drainpipe which has a p trap and often gets blocked up. You need to force water down the drain hole. You can use a turkey baster or similar type of plunger filled with water. Once you have cleared the blockage pour hot water till it runs freely. Hope this sorts your problem, don't forget to rate me.

Ice and Water not dispensing. Light button not working


INSIDE THE DISPENSER ASSEMBLY IS A SEPARATE ELECTRONIC BOARD THAT CONTROLS THE DISPENSER.
OCCASIONALLY, THE DOOR SOLENOID OR THE CUBE ICE SOLENOID WILL SHORT OUT CAUSING A BURNOUT OF THE DISPENSER CONTROL BOARD. CHECK FOR A BURNT SMELL COMING FROM THE DISPENSER HOUSING. IF YOU SMELL IT, THE BOARD AND/OR SOLENOID NEED TO BE REPLACED.
