Viking Appliance Recalls
Viking prides itself of precision engineer of its appliances, however, from time to time an appliance recall may still be needed as a momentary breakdown in the manufacturing chain or damage in transport, if you suspect your Viking appliance is not functioning properly, the master Viking technicians at AES can immediately evaluate your appliance and prepare the necessary documentation for return to the manufacturer for refund or replacement.
Here is a list of troubled Viking appliances that are currently on recall:
Viking Built-In 48-Inch wide Side-by-Side Refrigerator/Freezers | For refrigerator/freezers manufactured before March 1, 2005, and certain Built-In 36-Inch wide Bottom Mount Freezer Refrigerators manufactured before April 10, 2006, Viking advises that screws attaching the pivot plate of the top hinge on the door may shear causing the door to detach from the hinge pivot plate and creating a risk of impact injury or fall.
VT 400 4-Slot Viking Professional Toasters | Viking advises consumers to discontinue use of the product. Viking reports that wiring inside the toaster can become loose and contact the toaster body posing a shock hazard to consumers. No personal property damage has been reported, but Viking has received five reports that consumers have experienced minor electric shock when touching the outside of the toaster. If you own one of these toasters, you should stop using the toaster immediately, unplug it and contact Viking to obtain a free replacement toaster. Viking will replace any VT 400 4-Slot Toaster with a new VT 401 4-Slot Toaster at no charge.
Model 325 and Model 450 Viking 24″ Dishwashers | Certain Model 325 and 450 dishwashers manufactured between May 26, 2010 and September 15, 2010 have been recalled. The voluntary recall is being implemented as a result of the potential for fire. An electrical connector to the dishwasher heater may fail resulting in overheating and creating a risk of fire.
