Viking DFSB482 Side by Side Fridge/Freezer service Manual
Posted 19 April 2011 - 01:00 PM
I have a Viking DFSB482 Side by Side Fridge/Freezer [yes one of those units that got recalled by Viking b/c the doors fall off due to poor hinge design] that is running hot. I cleaned all exterior coils & fans [FUN!] and unit is still running hot. The conditioned air from the evap coils in the freezer box is blowing [slowly?] -8 to -10 degrees F; however, the the air in the fridge box never falls below 39F and there is considerable frost build up on the freezer door directly in-front of the evap coils. There is/are no obstructions in front of the upper and lower openings between the R/F boxes. Gaskets replaced about 2 years ago when Viking did hinge recall, they look in fair shape and for the most part pass the $ bill test. Unit was working fine until about a week ago, I then undertook all the above maintenance. All this leads me to believe that one or more of the interior circulation fans are staring to fail or have failed completely & thus the request for the service manual I need to find all the fans to test them & replace as/if needed. I will also need part #'s list to order if needed. Any and all help is sincerely appreciated, as are any other suggestions for a fix if I am missing anything pertainant...which I usually do! THANKS!
