Question about Viking VCSB423 Side by Side Refrigerator
Actually VCSB420. Repaired a bad evaporator fan on the freezer side. Now fridge will run and cool for a while and then trip the GFI outlet. I have found that if I manually turn the defrost timer fridge starts and runs again for hours until it pops the GFI again. Didn't do this until after repairing fan. Local parts house thinks defrost circuit has been accidentally grounded. Have not checked yet. Can timers go bad?
Unlikely to be the defrost timer. more likely to be the defrost element. try disconnecting the element and see if it trips then. could be of course a wiring fault - frayed wires etc
