Thermador PRDS48GDUS Range... HELP!.... needed

06 March 2014 - 07:45 PM

I got a NEW Animal... His name is "Thermador". (Actually #PRDS48GDUS is his 'clinical' birth name). He's about 48 inches long, comes with 6 STAR burners and a griddle, has a gas and electric oven and likes to 'Click" a lot even when no one is around.


Do You know this Animal??? Have you SEEN this Animal??? Well, if so... then maybe you can help me understand This One.


I noticed that the burners, when turned all the way off (along with everything else), will start clicking on its own. (Board???), Buuttt... when I turn the L/F burner knob (second from the left) about 3/8 inch towards the 'on' position, the clicking Stops. And STAYS stopped... (Switch???) .


all the ignitors seem to be in relatively good position. I lightly sanded them and checked for any blockages at the burners. They ALL light by themselves (except 1- (M/F)( ignitor not sparking Anytime...). Thats the 2nd issue... but... if given a flame, it lights fine. And what tool do I need to remove the Nuts on the venturi(s) / spill trays???


Sooo... does this make any sense to anyone??? Is it 'clear' and 'understandable'??? cuz... i'm cunfewzzed!!!!!!


Please Help!!!

Okay... here we go again...

In late Nov. of last year (2013), I posted on this unit requesting a manual. THIS units srvc manual was not received, but even if it had been, I'm not sure what I need would be in there. But here goes...


The unit stopped cooling and found that the evap had a leak. The owners wanted it repaired (given Their options...), so, replaced the evap and (after much discussion), replaced the compressor w/filter drier too. Did my vacuum. got what I needed...Checked the pressure(s), after 5.75 oz of 134r refrigerant... everything was... True. and stayed that way till 3 days ago. So thats... 80 sumthin days with no issues. then I Got the call we never want to get: "my freezer is warming up again". So I go back out, check the compressor first,  and its not running. Replace the overload, it kicks right on... so i think: I better check the pressures... it's in a vacuum. ARRRGGGHHH!!! right??? I then RE-check my joints. No problem there. So now i'm thinking that maybe Its got a leak in the condenser or the heat exchange. but I didn t have the time to spend checking that then, so I gas it back up (5.75 oz 134a), check pressure(s). its holding... and then ask owners to give me 6 hour updates till I get back.


So... O.K. Forum... Give me wut U Got!!!!!!


Wut Wood Uuuu Do?????? and Pleeeaaassseee... help me find that Manual!!!!!! THX.

Viking RangeHood # VCWH3648SS Lights stopped working

27 January 2014 - 12:18 PM

The owner stated that he was replacing a burned out light bulb, when in doing so... both lights went out and the lights have'nt worked since even after he bought New light bulbs. In looking at the unit I checked continuity on the light switch and the sockets themselves by screwing in a lightbulb to close the circuit, then unscrewing it to open the circuit. All of these proved good. I THINK the problem lies in the dimmer switch since the other related componants checked out O.K., but since I am not very familiar with the Viking Rangehoods then I would like the Expertise of the Forum before I go buying parts that may not be needed,


I didnt think about it at the time, but I realized later that I could have tested the dimmers ohm range. I could really use the Forums help on This. Guide me...... Please. Did I overlook anything???
