I have a client who said she has a viking that wont go into clean, she said a service rep came out and charged her 145.00 and said she just needed to do with out clean mode. So here I am. Had apprentice status last month and need to know how to keep it. I'm in business start up mode here so funds are weak at the moment. So first question is where can you get viking parts. Are they only availiable from them. I kind of sense some of the companies dont make prints availiable. My customer said her model was a VDSG 305 4bss. That doesnt come up is it possibly a VGSC 305 48?. If you have any advice or help let me know. I'm thinking there is a problem with the door switch, some are calling it a motor. Have not even seen the unit so I blind as to what to expect to acess the doo switch. Trying to form a plan for battle and don't like not having one. Thanks in advance

Battle plan

1. Patience.

2. More of 1

3. repeat

 

You get the point. The ones i've worked on are pretty simple really., just a real pita because of the screws, rust, placement. . . . I like hadco for parts.

 

Vikings always seem to take 3 times as long as the regular ones

It is a VDSC 305 4B SS, was able to get on phone with tech, the guy was real helpfull, put me in touch with HADCO parts and we got them on the way. Problem was thermstat switch / mico swith on the back broke, we jumpered it and found out the self clean control board was shot, also had a buzzing relay underneath . I did not take the toe kick panel off, hope it's just the two screws put in bad spot that I have to take off to access the buzing relay.
the tech sent me a repair manual, not exact for my model, but explains the clean cycle and trouble shoot techniques.
My customer is a good one and ordered all the parts. Was not as high priced as I expected, 245.00 for all shipped.

Here is some helpfull info. Hadco parts phone # 1-800-241 9152, vicking tech support 1-800-914-4799 (tim hunt was my tech great help, professional) Thanks for your efforts here. I have a saved PDF copy, can we attach to post?? Instruct How?
