I've got an older Viking refridgerator (about 17 years old). It has always
worked perfect. I noticed three days ago that the milk, orange juice and
fresh veggies are freezing! The temp setting is on its lowest in the fridge
and about half way in the freezer.
Other than a pooched fridge, what could be causing this? Is there a vent or
something I can clean? Anything else thats simple? I'd hate to spend $1K
on a new fridge if I can squeeze another few years outta this girl.
Canadian Viking...model# may not help us as most/many Canadian model#s'
are not online :(
What is the temp inside the freezer?
Bad cold control, inefficient refrigeration system ( why we test the FZ
temp ), wrong control settings, light bulb staying on inside confusing
Check the temps inside and let us know :)

Well, I completely emptied the freezer and fridge, disassembled all the
shelves and THOROUGHLY CLEANED the bugger. :)
I vacuumed a lot of spilled frozen peas (an exploded bag) from inside some
inner vents in the freezer. Let it thaw for a day, re-plugged in and let it
re-cool and now life is good. in fact, its not cold enough on the current
setting anymore :)
