Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

I have an Eaton-Viking fridge at my cottage in Canada. It freezes some things in the refrigerator and needs a new temperature control. I understand these fridges were made by some other company such as Amana, GE etc. This appliance is quite old but is in good working order except for the temperature comtrol. Is there any possibility that a part to fit this appliance is still available. The model# is R213F, serial #2091241

The temperature issue will not change as you do not have a frost free fridge. With the type you currently have the older it gets the less it works. Think frost free!

Viking Wine Cellar Temperature Near-Freezing


Viking wine coolers are made by Marvel.They all had issues with freezing the contents. If you replace the electronic cold control system it will be fine.If you don't, it will freeze the wine popping the corks and leaking in the unit.If you get the parts from Marvell they are much cheaper.

Freezer not cold enough


Hi yes you do need to keep the room the freezer is in at ahigher temperature probably not below 55 although you will need to experiment to find the minimum you can get away with. This is because modern refrigeration is designed for heated environments and some types are more susceptible than others to this situation.
Hope this will Fixya.

Eaton viking fridge model RF1717


hi The limit switch is found only on frost-free refrigerators and freezers. Its function is to keep the defrost heating element from exceeding certain set temperatures. If a refrigerator has lots of frost in the freezer compartment, the problem may be the limit switch. However, other components -- the evaporator fan, the defrost timer, and the defrost heater -- can cause the same problem. Check these for malfunctions, as detailed below. If these parts are in working condition, the problem is most likely in the limit switch. Don't try to fix the limit switch yourself; call a professional service person for replacement.

Adjust the temperature control for the freezer to a normal setting. Fast freeze is only for when new products are put in that need to be frozen. This locks the system into a continuous run mode and could be responsible for the freezing condition in the refrigerator section. Check the temperatures with a thermometer as the sensor for the freezer temperature could be bad causing the light to come on.
