Viking Warming Drawer Repair
Compared to other popular brands of kitchen appliances, the Viking brand is merely a babe. The company was founded by Fred Carl in the mid 1980’s. When the first Viking kitchen appliances hit the market, people instantly fell in love with the brand. The high-quality construction, user-friendly designs, and stunning use of the most recent technology have made Viking brand appliances one of the most popular brands on the current market. Viking warming drawers maintain the tradition of being an attractive, well-designed, user-friendly appliance.
If you don’t already have a Viking warming drawer in your home and have decided that it’s something you want to add, Viking is a great brand to start out with. The company currently produces and sells 12 different types of warming drawers. You’ll love how each one has a different design and a different style, allowing you to find something that perfectly suits your needs and desires.
If you have a Viking warming drawer, it’s likely you don’t spend much time thinking about it. It’s simply something you use whenever you need to keep a plate of food warm until the food is ready to be eaten.

All of that changes the day you put something in the drawer and discover that the formally reliable appliance is no longer working properly.

Viking Warming Drawer Maintenance

The first aspect of good Viking warming drawer maintenance is using a warm, damp cloth to clean the interior and exterior of the appliance after it’s done being used for the day. Once you’ve removed crumbs and grease droplets, use a soft, dry cloth, like a shammy, to dry the interior.
At least once a year, and more if you use the warming drawer heavily, you’ll need to set aside some time to replace the drawer’s silicon. Some people find this an easy task while other’s struggle with it. Don’t worry if replacing the silicon isn’t your favorite job. We’re more than willing to do it for you.

Avoiding Viking Warming Drawer Repair Crises
Believe it or not, it’s really not all that difficult to keep your Viking warming drawer running smoothly. Really, the only thing you need to do is use some common sense.
When you first purchase your Viking warming drawer, don’t even think about installing it yourself. If you try to handle the installation on your own, you will come to hate the decision. It’s far better to let the professionals handle the installation. By having the pros install the appliance, you not only know that it’s installed properly, but it also means that if it’s damaged during the installation process, you haven’t done anything to violate Viking’s warranty.
Take the time to read your owner’s manual before you start to use your warming drawer. Reading the manual might not be the most exciting thing you’ve ever done, but it will prevent you from making a silly, and potentially expensive, mistake that will require Viking warming drawer repairs.
Let your kids know that your new kitchen appliance is for adult use only, and not something for them to play with. A shocking number of the Orange County Viking warming drawer calls we receive are about an appliance that was damaged after the owner’s kids played too rough with. Not only does not letting them play with the appliance extend its life, it also reduces the odds of your kids getting burned. If you must let your kids use the warming drawer, make sure you watch them closely the entire time.
Never hang anything heavier than a pot holder on any of the knobs or handles.
If your floor gets wet, the first thing you need to do is unplug the warming drawer. You don’t want the power source to get wet which can trigger electrical problems that could result in your entire warming drawer needing to be rewired. Don’t plug the drawer back in until the floor, the outlet, and the plug are completely dry. It’s not a bad idea to unplug the warming drawer whenever you’re not using it. Not only does this prevent the plug from getting soaked in an accident, but also reduces the odds of the appliance being subjected to a random electrical surge.
Before cleaning the appliance’s interior, unplug the warming drawer.
Never put any type of closed container in you Viking warming drawer. The steam build up will eventually create an explosion that could do a great deal of damage to the warming drawer. Don’t attempt to put a container wrapped in plastic wrap in the warming oven either. As the interior grows warmer, the wrap will melt and damage the appliance.
When you choose the spot in your kitchen where your warming drawer will go, keep it well away from the sink. The last thing you need or want is for the appliance to get a good soaking because someone got a little wild while washing dishes.
Your warming drawer isn’t intended to be used for storage so avoid doing this. We’ve lost count of the number of warming drawers we’ve repaired that were damaged by an item someone tried to store inside of it.
Business owner need to make sure that their employees have been instructed on the proper and safe way to use the warming cabinet.
Check the ducts once or twice a day and make sure they’re free of obstructions.
When you open the drawer, don’t jerk the door open all the way with a single smooth pull. You want to open it a small space to let the steam escape. Make sure you keep your face, hands, and hair away from the billowing steam. Once there’s no more steam, you can open the drawer and withdraw your food. It won’t take long for the steam to dissipate.
