Question about Viking DDBB363 Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Viking Refrigerator problem

We have a Viking refrigerator with a bottom freezer, VCBB series. Yesterday a random alarm started beeping from the fridge. Didn't know what it was, but pressed "alarm off" at the top of the fridge, inside, and the sound stopped. The only problem is, the fridge is not cooling as much as it needs to be. There is a bar with colors and different labels but we don't know how to read it/ tell if that's part of the problem and no manual since its a new house.

Thanks,
Roberta

    This Viking is not cooling. The alarm went off last night and again this AM. It
    is not cooling at all now, and with the 3 day weekend, no one is available till Tues. Is there a way to reset it with the buttons at the top inside. I tried "max", but seems to not change. Susan

    Temperature starts to increase, light bulb shuts off and alarm sounds. We try everything and eventually it ends up cooling down. I have had this problem for as long as I owned this fridge...it randomly does this making us have to transfer all the food to the garage fridge to avoid spoiling.Can some one tell me whats wrong and how i can fix it.

    I have a Viking (Model # VCBBB363L-SS) that constantly trips the freezer thermistor alarm (beeps, then the blue temperature lights constantly scroll). Temperatures in freezer and refrigerator seem fine. I replaced the freezer thermostat and still have same issue. Any suggestions woud be appreciated. Thanks.

Try this my Mother had a similar problem, make sure the vents are not covered inside the fridgerator between the bottom and top so the cold air is able to circulate between them.
