Vicking - Nothing but trouble

PeterM123May 21, 2013

I strongly urge anyone thinking about purchasing Viking appliances not to do so. Just over six years ago, I purchased every appliance, including a microwave and barbecue, and I have had nothing but trouble with every one of them. Right now my refrigerator has to be rebuilt ($1,200 in labor). The freezer has gone multiple times. DO NOT BUY VIKING.

Geeze Peter! You sound angry, and thanks for the warning. I could say the same for Frigidaire!

Sometimes you just get a lemon!

I'd be mad too. Viking isn't exactly cheap. You'd hope to get more than a few years of trouble-free operation. Although I don't know the expected life of modern appliances. Maybe we're both expecting too much.

Was Viking unresponsive to your complaints?
