Viking Refrigerator Error Codes

Viking Refrigerator Error Code E4

When you spot Error Code E4 on your Viking refrigerator’s control panel, it indicates a fault in the display thermistor. The display thermistor plays a crucial role in regulating and maintaining the internal temperature of the refrigerator. A fault in this component can disrupt the normal functioning of the appliance.

Possible Causes of Error Code E4:

  1. Faulty Thermistor: The thermistor itself may be defective, causing it to relay inaccurate temperature readings to the control panel.
  2. Disconnected Wires: The wiring connecting the thermistor to the control panel may be loose or disconnected.
  3. Short Circuits: A short circuit in the thermistor or its wiring can trigger Error Code E4.

Troubleshooting and Solutions: To address Error Code E4, follow these detailed steps:

  1. Inspect Thermistor:

    • Locate the display thermistor in your refrigerator.
    • Check for any visible damage or signs of wear.
    • If the thermistor appears damaged, it may need replacement.
  2. Examine Wires:

    • Carefully inspect the wires connecting the thermistor to the control panel.
    • Ensure all connections are secure and not corroded.
    • Reconnect any loose or disconnected wires.
  3. Check for Short Circuits:

    • Examine the entire length of the thermistor’s wiring for signs of a short circuit.
    • If you identify a short circuit, replace the affected section of the wiring.
  4. Reset the Refrigerator:

    • Turn off the refrigerator and unplug it from the power source.
    • Wait for a few minutes before plugging it back in.
    • Power on the refrigerator to see if the error persists.
