How To Clean The Condenser Coils On A Viking Refrigerator

If you own a Viking refrigerator, then you know that these appliances come with some unique features. If you have a Viking fridge, then you also know that the condenser coils need to be cleaned periodically for them to keep working at peak performance.

If you’ve never cleaned your Viking refrgerator’s condenser coils before, don’t worry – it’s not as difficult as it might seem. In this blog post, we will walk you through exactly what the condenser coils are, how they work and how to clean them on your Viking refrigerator.

What Are Condenser Coils?

The condenser coil is a part of the refrigerator that is responsible for cooling the air inside the unit. That’s why it’s sometimes also referred to as an evaporator coil. It is located on the back of the refrigerator’s inside wall near the floor. The condenser coil has a high temperature, as it is responsible for cooling the inside of a refrigerator. It does this by pulling heat out of the refrigerator’s internal air, and then transferring this heat outside into the environment.

How Do Condenser Coils Work?

The inside of a refrigerator is kept cold by a process called condensation. Inside the refrigerator, the compressor pumps refrigerant through a series of pipes. The pipes are then cooled by the condenser coil. This causes the refrigerant to turn into a liquid, and thus, lowering its boiling point. The refrigerant then travels through the rest of the appliance to keep the inside of the refrigerator cold. At the end of the cycle, the refrigerant will be released back into the environment as a warm, pressurized liquid. This warm liquid is then sent back to the condenser coil to be cooled again before it’s released back into the refrigerator to start the cycle over again.

How To Clean Condenser Coils On A Viking Refrigerator

First of all, you should make sure that your Viking is turned off and unplugged. Once you have done that, the first step is to remove the back of the refrigerator. You can do this by removing the screws or the clips holding it in place. Once you have removed the back wall of the Viking, you can use a vacuum cleaner to remove any dirt or debris from the back wall of the refrigerator where the condenser coils are located. It’s also a good idea to vacuum the condenser coils themselves to remove any debris stuck to them. Next, you can use a paint brush or a long cleaning toothbrush to remove any dirt or dust that is stuck to the condenser coils. You can also use a mixture of soap and water to clean the condenser coils if you feel that they are really dirty.

Why Should You Clean The Condenser Coils?

As mentioned earlier, the condenser coils are responsible for pulling heat out of the refrigerator’s internal air and then transferring that heat outside through the back of the refrigerator. If the condenser coils get clogged with dirt or dust, it will greatly reduce their ability to transfer heat to the outside environment. If the coils get too dirty, they will even start to transfer heat back into the refrigerator and disrupt the inside temperatures. To avoid these problems, you should clean the condenser coils on your Viking refrigerator once every year. If you notice that the temperature inside the refrigerator feels warmer than usual, or if the compressor keeps running longer than it used to, you should clean the condenser coils as soon as possible.

Concluding Words

If you have a Viking refrigerator, then you know that the condenser coils need to be cleaned periodically for them to keep working at peak performance. The good news is that cleaning the condenser coils on a Viking refrigerator is not very difficult, and it’s something that you can do yourself. The best way to clean the coils is to first remove the back wall of the refrigerator and then use a vacuum cleaner and/or a cleaning brush to remove any dirt or dust from the coils themselves and from the back wall of the refrigerator.
