Viking Built-In Refrigerator Repair
If you were to take a survey asking Americans what they considered to be the most important appliance in their kitchens, it would likely turn out to be the refrigerator. Built-in refrigerators play a vital role in our homes and businesses, which is why a built-in refrigerator breakdown can be such a source of trouble. A fridge that doesn’t work for as little as 48 hours can lead to spoiled food and potential food poisoning; huge losses for businesses stocking expensive perishables; and all-round inconvenience and stress. We at Appliance Cowboys are well aware of this, which is why our staff of built-in refrigerator repair experts are always on hand to save the day as quickly as possible.
Making sure you never have to go through such trials is a matter of vigilance, as we always tell our clients. Your built-in refrigerator will rarely break down in a single moment – fridge troubles usually start small and grow to become general systems or mechanical failures with time.
To help you know when it’s time to call in the experts, here is a quick list of the danger signs to look out for.
This is the larger fridge compartment where we typically store your vegetables, dairy products, meats, drinks, fruits, and everything else we don’t want completely frozen.
- You start to notice quite a bit of moisture or condensation forming on the walls, shelves, and contents of your fridge. In severe cases, a puddle might form below your built-in refrigerator.
- Food and drinks stop getting to the usual degree of coldness that they used to. Warmer temperatures in this compartment without any temperature setting changes on your part indicate a definite problem that should be looked at as soon as possible, especially as this poses a big food poisoning risk.
- Instead of chilling them to an appropriate temperature, fridge contents are frozen entirely without any temperature setting changes on your part.
- Sudden changes in the way your built-in refrigerator operates normally. Watch out for such signs as changes in the noise, strange sounds, difficulties in opening and closing the compartment, etc.
- Vegetables, dairy products, and other perishables begin wilting or going bad way earlier than usual in your fridge or before their expiry dates are reached.
This is where everything we want completely frozen goes.
- What you put in does not freeze completely anymore or when previously frozen items begin to thaw while still in the freezer.
- Water or frost starts to accumulate in the freezer compartment or on the surfaces of the items inside it.
- Heat begins to radiate from the top of the freezer compartment.
- A stop in ice production for units that come with icemakers
Viking Cooktop Repair
In any kitchen, the cooktop is among the most important appliances to be found, being the source of heat required for most cooking operations. Viking electric cooktops are a popular choice for homes and businesses across America, being easily installed appliances that give us consistent and precise temperature control capabilities that are ideal for everyday cooking activities. As with all other appliances, cooktops are prone to operational issues that might need the intervention of experts. If you’re looking for top notch Viking cooktop repair, Appliance Cowboys is the place to call.
These are some of the more commonly reported cooktop issues that the Viking appliance repair technicians over at Appliance Cowboys Houston will be able to get sorted out for you so you can get on with your kitchen magic.
Common Viking cooktop problems
- Cooktop will not turn on
In most instances, simply checking to see whether or not the cooktop is actually plugged in solves the problem, so this should be your first reaction when you encounter this problem. Ensure it is properly plugged in, and if it still doesn’t come on, check whether your outlet is functioning well by trying out other small electronics there like a kettle or even your phone charger. If you’re confident that you don’t have any problems with your power supply or electric outlets, then it’s time to call in the pros.
- Coils won’t heat up
Some cooktop models use electric coils as burners, and sometimes they will fail to heat up even with the cooktop turned on and everything seemingly ok. This might be the result of a loosened connection between the cooktop and the coils, which usually comes about as a result of incorrect replacement when coils are detached for deep cleaning purposes. Before calling in the experts, you can perform a simple check to ensure that there is no obstruction interfering with the connection and that the coil is in its proper position.
- Difficulty adjusting burner temperatures
Electric cooktops are highly regarded because they offer the ability to control temperatures with a high degree of accuracy, so a problem with this function can be very frustrating. The problem here might lie in the appliance’s infinite switch system. This is connected to the temperature regulating dial and so a problem here might cause the burners to keep at a certain temperature level regardless of what setting you select.
- Sparks are emitted whenever the cooktop is turned on
These types of cooktops are not meant to spark in the same way that gas burners do when turned on, so this will definitely indicate the need for specialized attention as there is a risk of electrocution involved here. The cause might be loose wire connections near the coil burners.
- Indicator lights will not turn on
Indicator lights are what let you know what temperature setting you’ve selected and any other useful information you might need. A failure here will probably indicate a defective control switch or burned–out light bulbs in the cooktop that will need to be replaced.
- Damaged coils
Over time, the coils on your cooktop will be worn out and begin to deteriorate, with common indicators of this being bubbles, cracks, or blisters on the coils. These cannot really be fixed, and so replacement is the only option, making sure that the proper type and size of coils are used.
Viking Range Repair
Cooking with a gas range makes kitchen life a whole lot easier for the modern home and business. A faulty range can put a halt to almost all cooking operations, which is why our Viking gas range repair experts are always standing by to rectify any range problems you might be experiencing. The following are a couple of common gas range problems. While some of them can be fixed with a bit of know-how and elbow grease, be sure to leave any complicated operations, especially those involving gas lines, to the pros.
Common range problems
- Burner flame is noisy
This is caused by either too much or too little air getting through to the burners. The solution here will be making adjustments to the air shutter mechanism but will involve measuring gas output levels, which is a task best left to those with the necessary tools.
- Burner will not light
This is a very common problem with gas ranges and is usually the result of clogged burner portholes or extinguished pilot lights. For clogging you can simply clean out the portholes and if the problem lies with the pilot light, clean its opening or try adjusting its flame. In ranges with electric igniters, check to see that the unit is plugged in securely to a working outlet.
- You smell gas
The moment you detect the odor of gas while the pilot flame isn’t burning, you should immediately ventilate the space by opening up doors and windows, waiting at least 5 minutes or until the odor has completely dissipated, then relighting the pilot light. Should you detect a gas odor while the pilot light is currently on or the electric igniter is properly plugged in, check to see that all the burners are shut off completely. If this doesn’t fix the problem, you will need to turn off the gas supply to the unit and make sure the room is kept well ventilated. Call in the experts for assistance.
Viking Range top repair
Your range top is an important member of your kitchen appliance family, and one which shouldn’t be left malfunctioning for too long at a time. Contact us for expert range top repair services in case you have any trouble with your Viking range top.
Common viking range top problems
- Defective controls
You need properly working controls to regulate the flames of your unit, but these might break or wear out over time. The solution here will be to replace them, and this should only be done using authorized parts to ensure quality performance.
- No flames from the burners
The burner openings of your unit might see an accumulation of grease, dirt, and grime obstruct the proper flow of air and gas, making it impossible for them to light up as they should. Warm soapy water and a soft-bristled brush should be enough to take care of this kind of obstruction.
Viking Dishwasher Repair
Vikings luxury dishwashers clean dishes in style. These innovative machines leave dishes sparkling clean at just the touch of a button. With innovative technology, quiet operation, and powerful wash cycles, Viking dishwashers are a popular appliance in Houston. With a wide range of features, they are essential in the kitchen. Viking dishwashers are known for their simplicity when operating, however, repairs on these machines can be complicated. It’s always best to call the experts if you are experiencing problems. Here at Appliance Cowboys, we take pride in our knowledge of Viking Dishwasher repair.
Common Problems With Viking Dishwashers
Here are the most common problems people run into with Viking dishwashers. If you are experiencing these or any other problems give us a call!
- Your dishwasher won’t drain between cycles
If your dishwasher isn’t draining it may need repairs fast. Sometimes it’s a simple fix of just finishing the cycle properly. If that’s not the case, a dishwasher filled with water unable to drain can mean a bigger problem that can’t be fixed on your own.
- Confusing error codes
Error codes can be tough to understand! If your dishwasher is giving you error codes it can mean a number of things. At Appliance Cowboys, we know what these confusing codes mean.
Viking Oven Repair
All cooks and bakers out there, whether professionals or those at home, understand the importance of having a fully functional oven. Even though most of us might not use it every day, we can hardly do without it for too long. There are plenty of things that can go wrong with even the best-constructed oven, but we have all the tools and skills needed for professional Viking oven repair.
Common Viking oven problems
- Failure to heat up
In electric ovens, a failure to heat can usually be attributed to a fault in the heating element while in gas ovens, the problem is usually with the igniter. If you notice that your gas burners as well as the oven compartment are not functioning, then the culprit will likely be the gas line itself. While some DIY enthusiasts might be able to replace an igniter on their own, gas line problems are best left to the experts that know how to handle potentially dangerous gas line systems.
- Oven door will not shut
A door that refuses to shut completely is hazardous to use, and so should be taken care of immediately. The problem will usually be a mechanical one involving such parts as the hinges, rubber door gasket, broken springs, or the door sensor. Replacement parts will be required here, so there will be little you can do on your own to sort out the issue.
- Interior light goes out
Just like ordinary household bulbs, oven lights will go out eventually. You might be able to sort this issue out on your own if you know where the appropriate bulb can be purchased.
- Failure to self-clean
Self-cleaning oven won’t self-clean? Nobody’s got time for that. If you’re confident that you’re starting the cycle properly, with all the knobs and timers positioned and set appropriately without any success, then you’ll need expert assistance. The problem will likely lie with one or more of the vital internal components such as the control board, door lock motor, door lock switch, thermostat, or any other part that might require fixing or replacement.
Viking Wine Cooler Repair
Viking wine coolers are great appliances to have in your home or business, as they are able to keep wine temperatures very finely regulated. Wines can get to be quite pricey, and your regular refrigerator might not cut it when it comes to keeping various wine types at different temperatures.
Due to the sensitive nature of the objects they contain, wine coolers need to be constantly functioning at optimal levels. Today’s wine coolers are complex appliances, and with such complexity comes the inevitable opportunities for parts to fail and disrupt the cooler’s operations, meaning the units are unable to keep stored wines at the desired temperatures. Our Viking wine cooler repair technicians are standing by to remedy whatever wine cooler problems that may threaten the safety of your stock.
Common Viking wine cooler problems
- Failing condenser fan
The condenser is a vital component of your wine cooler, and a condenser fan is there to ensure that the condenser and coil do not overheat as the cooler runs. The fan is supposed to turn on automatically as soon as the cooler is switched on but when it doesn’t, your condenser and condenser coil will overheat, subsequently transferring heat to the interior of the cooler cabinet. A warm cooler cabinet means warmed up wine, and that spells trouble.
- Failing evaporator fan
When you open up a wine cooler and feel the cold air flowing out of it, you have your evaporator to thank. This is the component responsible for drawing cold air from the coils into the cabinet’s interior. Even with a fully-functional compressor and coil running at full capacity, your wine cooler will not be able to do its job if the evaporator has failed.
- Broken thermostat
A wine cooler’s thermostat is what regulates the supply of power to the compressor, condenser, and evaporator fan. It is also what allows us to adjust and control the temperature settings of the wine cooler.
Viking Wine Cellar Repair
This wine cellar is a sublime piece of home and commercial appliance luxury, capable of storing a lot more wine bottles due to its large size and multiple storage racks. Even though the Viking wine cellar is superbly engineered, there might be the occasional trouble down the road that will need expert attention. Our wine cellar repair professionals will be there to sort out any problems you might experience with your unit. All you have to do is make the call.
Common wine cellar problems
- Temperature fluctuations
Proper wine storage requires that a certain set temperature be maintained at all times, otherwise the risk of wine spoilage appears. If the thermostat settings are as they should be, then your problem will lie with the unit itself. Expert attention will be able to determine whether your thermostat, door gasket, condenser coil, or any other component is to blame for the malfunction and correct the problem.
- Startup failure
The first thing you should do here is simply check whether the unit is plugged in securely to a working power outlet. If this is not the problem and you cannot spot any visible damage to the cord, then deeper analysis will have to be done on the unit’s internal components. Call in the experts should it come to this.
Viking Ice Maker Repair
Whatever you use them for, having an ice maker handy is a great convenience. That’s why Appliance Cowboys is ever at the ready to handle any and all of your Viking ice maker repair or maintenance requirements.
Common Viking ice maker problems
- Foul-smelling or dirty ice
The last thing you would ever want to see clinking in your glass is a cube of dirty ice. Seriously. Nobody wants that. The causes of such a horrifying occurrence may simply be a dirty or moldy ice bin or tray, which a thorough cleaning would be able to solve. In some cases, the problem may lie with the filter itself, which may be worn out and expired. Professional help to replace this will be required.
- Diminished or halted ice production
A drop in ice production might be the result of numerous issues, as various factors and components contribute towards the eventual production of ice in these units. A technician will be able to investigate and determine where the problem lies, going through from the water supply systems and condenser elements to the shutoff mechanisms and beyond. They’ll know exactly what needs to be done.
Vikgin Microwave Repair
There are few homes in the nation that do not have a microwave in them. The usefulness of these appliances cannot be gainsaid, which is why our microwave repair technicians are always standing by to respond to any and all of your Viking microwave troubles.
Common Viking microwave issues
- Carousel failure
The carousel is the component that sets the turntable where you place your food I motion. When the carousel is not properly aligned with the turntable, no motion will take place.
- Heating failure
The magnetron, capacitors, and diodes within your microwave are just some of the sensitive parts that may either short, burn out, or malfunction. Either replacing them or fixing them up will be a job requiring specialized knowledge.
Viking Warming Drawer Repair
The span of time between the moment food is taken off the flames and the moment it is set upon the table can be a long one in some cases, and the warming drawer is the appliance that ensures that it loses none of its warmth and flavor. Our Viking warming drawer repair technicians will gladly help you sort out any possible operational issues your unit may develop.
Common viking warming drawer issues
- Unit suddenly turns itself off
A common cause for this particular malfunction is a faulty thermostat. This is the component that tells the appliance the temperature within its cabinets, and trouble here will affect the entire unit’s operation. Expert care will be required to remedy the defect.
- Unit will not turn on
What you should first do here is check whether the appliance is properly plugged in to a working power outlet. If that looks good, then you might have trouble with your appliance’s internal wiring to reckon with. Professional attention should see the matter put right effectively.
Viking under-the-counter-refrigerator repair
These compact appliances deliver the functionality of their full-size counterparts while fitting in seamlessly with your kitchen. To keep them in good working condition, you need to have qualified under-the-counter refrigerator repair technicians handle any issues that may come up with your unit.
Common viking under-the-counter refrigerator problems
A faulty compressor will result in excessive cycling by the unit, which will translate to higher power bills for you. Have the problem properly investigated before additional components are affected by the problem.
Internal light failure
Your unit’s internal lights should come on automatically once you open the appliance’s doors. A faulty door switch/light switch will result in the failure of these lights even if they are in good working condition. Call in the pros for a proper look at the problem.
