Viking DFSB482 Side by Side Fridge/Freezer service Manual

19 April 2011 - 01:00 PM

Hi All!

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!

Miele T1576 dryer stuck on "Anti-crease" part of drying cycle

28 September 2009 - 03:24 PM

Ok got a Miele T1576 dryer stuck on "Anti-crease" part of drying cycle, which I believe is causing the door to not latch.  Got the unit to work once by unplugging it for about 5 minutes then held the door shut while plugging it back in; however after that one time fix I am unable to get unit to work.  I think the "brain ' needs to be reset but unsure how to do that.  The only indication that something is wrong is that when I power the unit on the indicator light, lights up in the anti-crease section of the cycle.  Any ideas? 

Miele Dryer Model T1576 Service Manual Request

07 September 2009 - 09:33 AM

Hi All,

After much searching could not find any info for Miele T1576 dryer.  Problem=door will not stay closed/latched.  Possible faulty lock mechanism [Miele p/n 3721391] got this # from Miele in Princeton, NJ.  Miele will send me the part but not the service manual unless I'm an authorized Miele Svc Co [which I'm not] Soooo...does anyone have one of these or could the point me in the correct direction to find one.  Also as a newly paid noobie member is there a link to browsing manuals or am I just a dork and can't find it?  Finally does anyone know if the door on this unit is reversable, I'm tired of it hitting me in the a** every time I empty the washer.
