    Default VUAR140 Viking professional beverage center

    Model Number: VUAR140
    Brand: other
    Age: More than 10 years

    Viking beverage center seems like it is not running when it should. Compressor is clean and free of debris. If I turn the dial to the off position then turn it up the compressor comes on. Unit will cool to approx 38 degrees but when it shuts off it doesn't cycle back to on. Temp raises to 58 degrees. Turn dial to off...back up to number 6..compressor comes on, cools, then temp goes back up. Thermostat? Or new temp control dial?

    Replace the cold control and that will fix it.

    Viking has made it almost impossible to get any service information on their machines calling it proprietary information. That just pisses off their customers. Only thing I can suggest is look on the part for a part number and try to cross it. The only place I know to get Viking parts is Viking.

    I assume by cold control you mean the thermostat? I was able to find an exploded view of the unit and found the part number. Thanks for your help

    Correct, thermostat was too broad a term when I first started. Every refrigerator had at least two (temperature thermostat and defrost thermostat). I've been using the term cold control for 30+ years. It's just habit. Thanks for the Viking part link. I guess you need to order the part from them also?
