Viking Refrigerator Repair – It’s Making Strange Noises
There are three main reasons your Viking Refrigerator is making noise and unfortunately all three require a certified Viking Refrigerator Repair technician. Two are not that serious but one can be!
First you need to determine where the noise is coming from. Is the noise coming from the back or from the bottom the Viking Refrigerator unit, or is it coming from inside the freezer.
If it’s coming from the bottom, the problem is like that your drain pan is loose. Use fastening tool such as duct tape of zip ties to fasten it and see if the problem is fixed. If that doesn’t work, give us a call and our certified Viking Refrigerator Repair Technician is standing by.

Either way, it’s not something you should attempt repairing yourself as you will need special knowledge and tools to get the job done right. So give us a call and we will complete the repair and get your Viking Refrigerator working properly again.
Viking Refrigerator Repair – It Doesn’t cool like it used to
If your Viking Refrigerator isn’t cooling like it used to, the problem is likely frost build-up. And yes, even a High End Viking Refrigerator can have frost build-up. Frost build-up can be caused by a defrost system malfunction. Here’s an easy way to check if this in fact is the problem.
Remove all the perishable foods from your Viking Refrigerator and set the thermostat to “Off.” Leave it alone for 24-48 hours with the doors open, letting your Viking Refrigerator to defrost and warm up to room temperature. And don’t forget to place a couple of towels at the base to catch the water from the melting frost. When the defrost is complete, turn the thermostat to the normal setting and see if the cooling goes back to normal. If it starts to cool normally, then the problem is likely with the defrost thermostat, timer or heater. All simple fixes, but still require a certified Viking Refrigerator Repair technician to fix. If Viking Refrigerator still refuses to cool properly, then the issue is likely with the compressor, which is not something you want because this will be an expensive fix.
