Open Question

VCBB363RSS installed in 9/7/07. Left the bottom freezer door open accidently for a couple of hours. Closed it and light does not come on. Freezer works lights do not come on. I removed drawers and checked bulbs, the lights came on after I removed and reinstalled, took about 5-10 minutes. Closed the freezer 15 minutes later bulbs do not come on. Repeated the bulb check seems like after it warms up a bit lights come on. Closed its and gets cold lights do not come on. Help John.

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: Viking Pro VCBB36 -warming up + alarm

Over the past several years my heat alarm would come on, first time I called a PROFESSIONALLY, he told me to unplug for 24HOURS, than start it. The solution worked for two years, just happened again, unplugged it for 24 hours, and it seems fine. My guess it must need to defrost. Good luck!

SOURCE: Viking freezer and fridge won't get cold enough.

I had the same problem with my side by side. Make sure the vents are not covered inside both the fridge and freezer between the bottom and top so the cold air is able to circulate between them. My freezer had ice covering the bottom vent.

Bottom freezer will not open


If you freezer door was left open for an extended period of time the rails that your bottom freezer slide on are most likely frozen. Repair #1 once you get the door open about every hour go in to you kitchen and open and close the freezer door a couple of times. Repair#2 Take your freezer door off remove the rails take a blow dryer and dry the rails untill you do not see any more water then add a sylcone based greast to the ball bearins on the rails and resinstall. Repair#3 Order a whole new set of rails.

My LG refrigerator (LRTN 19320WW) top freezer door ajar when the bottom cooler door closes. I think there is a connecting air tunnel between the freezer and cooler section that when the cooler is shut,...


The doors have tabs that push on the switches that turn the light off when the doors are closed. These doors have not been installed properly. I fixed the problem by shimming the bottom door up using washer at the lower hinge rod. Or yo can tape a bit of plastic to the tab on your door so that it makes good contact with the light swutch.

Left door open, closed next day, but only blowing cool air now


You will need to turn the unit off and let it completely unthaw. There is frost that builds up in the ducts and behind the panels when the door is left open that will cause the unit to not cool or circulate where needed.

Left door open on Sub zero model 650


It went into self protection mode. Just leave it closed and when the compressor cools down enough, it will start. Once the ref starts to cool, the lights and such will come back on.

All of this assumes that no failure was caused by the long run times when the door was open

Can't get alarm to turn off while temperature stabilizes


My wife solved it for me :-) You turn the alarm off with a switch at the bottom. The alarm turns off, but the light stays red for another 4 hours. After that the red light goes off too, and you can turn the switch back on without the alarm going off, if the freezer is back to operating temp.

Zanussi Electrolux frost free fridge/freezer - freezer defrosting


My husband left the freezer door open a couple of months ago, causing ice to form. The loud rattling noise was the fan hitting the ice. The reason why the temperature started to rise but the noise stopped was because the fan had got stuck in a block of ice and was no longer working. Simple solution - defrost the freezer for 24 hours. Touch wood, it is all working fine now!

Bosch classixx refridgerator


the evaporator is probably iced up and hence poor air flow. (i am assuming it is a frost-free type). switch off and leave for 24 hours with door open is the easy cure. otherwise, remove the back inside panel of the freezer and melt off the excess ice with a hairdryer used carefully
