Hello and thanks for using this service, if you have been waiting do not worry or get upset I am just one of the techs on here and I try to get to as many customers as I can and I just picked up your question now. Please give me time to respond sometimes I get your replies late so there may be a significant delay in responses. Please be patient and often I will ask you questions to narrow down the issue to get is diagnosed correctly.

Well I am not sure what exact details you are looking for, but you should purchase the WOLF/SUBZERO products. They are made in Wisconsin and every unit is hand inspected and tested before leaving the production facility. Further it is a sole owned company still very personal and has excellent service and reliability.

Thermador is part of BSH Home Appliances Corporation, a fully owned subsidiary of BSH Hausgeräte GmbH. Basically Thermador, Bosch, Gaggenau are all very similar. They have not been very reliable nor have a good reputation for parts or service. You will find it hard to get them serviced and repaired when they do go down. I would not recommend them.

Viking Headquartered on historic Cotton Row in downtown Greenwood, Mississippi, Viking Range employs more than 1,000 people at four manufacturing facilities in Leflore County. In 2013, the Middleby Corporation acquired Viking Range Corporation.

Viking product is generally overrated and overpriced. I work on them a lot. Dependability is an issue, they use a lot of subgrade parts in there units and parts and service are hard to come by for Viking as well.
