We have a Viking...

We have a Viking VCBB 2R-SS fridge freezer. Fridge is t cooling down properly even at max. Freezer is fine

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Viking is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

We bought it used so not 100% sure but maybe 5-10?

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

My husband would like to try unless it’s too complicated then we will have someone do it

Hello, welcome to JustAnswer. My name is ***** ***** I will be the one to assist you. Do you happen to have a multimeter? We are going to need to test the thermistor on this unit?

It looks like the thermister is exposed. Looks like a button by the vent. Can I just touch the multimeter to it? Which setting does the multimeter need to be on?

youw ill put it to its lowest setting and test for continuity. Unplug the thermistor first though. do not test it while still hooked up.

Should the power to the fridge be off?

yes that would be best

I was able to test in the refrigerator unit, not freezer. The multimeter read 0. It think I tested correctly.

ok so yes that tested correctly. Let me ask you this is the fan in the freezer running? You should hear it running when the door is shut and stop when the door is open.

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
No the fan runs when the door is open or closed

ok now does the light come on or off in the freezer when you hit the door switch.

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
No it stays on the whole time

ok ​so this could be just a simple door switch problem then. If the freezer door switch is not working then its not telling the unit to stop and start cooling. In order to get the freezer door switch ordered though you will have to contact Viking directly. One more thing I want you to check though is the compressor which on your unit is up top. Its a black pot. I need you to see if its running hot or warm?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Ok. The compressor is enclosed up top and it seems like it’s warm

ok ​warm is good it means its not a compressor leak. So you will need to contact a Viking part rep to get the correct part for your freezer door switch. Here is a phone number you can call to get that part ordered.

hop​efully this is all that is the problem you are having. The only other thing that makes sense would be a control board shortage. That can get a bit trickier with switching out but not impossible.
