Question about Viking VCSB423 Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Ice frozen together

On our Viking 42" side-by-side fridge the ice in the bin turns into one big lump of frozen together cubes.  It's impossible to ever use the ice without hacking it out with a knife (which I am loathe to do) because it's always frozen together this way.
It looks to me like the ice tray is possibly being over filled with water and spilling into the bin with each freezing cycle of the ice cubes.
Is there a way to adjust the amount of water going into the trays?

You can adjust the amount of water by popping the front white cover off the icemaker and adjusting a screw . depending on the model the screw will be a flat head on the side of the icemaker or a phillips screw on the front of the icemaker.

Could be several problems (I'm a homeowner, not an expert). GE had a problem with the water line in the freezer door: not enuf insulation so the line freezes, hence no water flow. I would look at this first, especially if you press the water dispenser handle and you hear the pump, but no water comes out. Ditto if the ice bin is empty or the ice maker isn't making any more ice. If the icemaker is making ice but not dispensing it, then the auger (thing that agitates the ice cubes in the bin) may be broken or frozen. (if frozen be sure ice cubes in bin are loose and not frozen into one big ice cube).

The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent between the freezer and fridge. the fan in the freezer blows air through it. there is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control.

Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp. try to chec in the user guide.

Hope helps.

The water runs into the ice cube tray, splashing over at the end , freezing the cubes below in the bin in a big lump. The tray seems to not want to reset straight after it dumps the cubes.


Locate the fill tube by the ice maker and toke a razor knife and cut an 1/8 in. biece off angling down toward the tray the s will fix your problem

Ice maker problems


If the ice bucket is over filling there may be a problem with the ice maker as this should stop making ice when the bucket is full. The ice in the bucket can freeze together just due to the weight of ice cubes . I suggest you check the ice within the bucket is all broken up and not frozen into big lumps

My ice freezes together!


Do you mean the ice cubes are too large to be individual cubes and come out as a lump? The water is filled by a timed fill so if the fill solenoid stays open a little and drips water into the cube tray it will have more water than normal. I guess I'm not sure if you mean the ice cubes are stuck together in the tray or are they sticking together in the holding bin area?
