Question about Viking DDBB363 Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
Last night the alarm sounded on the freezer portion of my Viking refrigerator/freezer (fridge on top, freezer drawer on bottom). Warning light indicated it was too warm. I checked the ice cream -- soft. Some frost build-up on the back wall, and half the vent slits are also jammed with ice. The thin metal ridges behind them are also covered in frost/ice. No ice on the floor of the freezer, so I don't think it is a jammed drain (which it was last time, with huge ice build up on the freezer floor). Can I defrost this on my own, by opening the freezer up, turning it off, and melting the frost away with a hair dryer? We had a party here, and it may have gotten left open, overwhelming the defroster with hot summer air. Or something may be broken....
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.
