    Viking built in refridgerator stopped cooling. After shutting unit down and restarting condensing fan come on but compressor not starting. Bad compressor?? Board?? Since fan comes on after initial start up I'm thinking compressor

    It depends on what style compressor is in there. Here's the thing, Viking has made it impossible to get any service information for their appliances. If you need a part you have to go through them. No one sells Viking parts. Their refrigerators are no different than anybody else's machines. I just need to know what style it is. It may not be the compressor. Unless it uses an analog cold control, both style compressors receive supply voltage from a control board so the compressor and condensor fan motor may not be connected in a parallel circuit. One uses a relay/overload/start device and one uses an inverter. This diagram will show you how to check both styles. If you have any questions please post a picture so I know what I'm dealing with.
