WARNING: To avoid electrical shock which can cause severe personal injury or death,
disconnect power to refrigerator using power switch before servicing. Wires removed during
disassembly must be replaced on proper terminals to insure correct earth ground and polarization.
After servicing, reconnect power using power switch.
NOTE: Do not use captured or recycled
refrigerant in Viking units.
recycled refrigerant voids any warranty.
NOTE: Charge system with exact amount
of refrigerant. See Technical Sheet or refer
to unit serial plate for correct refrigerant
Inaccurately charged system will
cause future problems.
NOTE: No Access Valve are to be left on
the system after repairs are made.
To charge system:
1. Close valves "A" to vacuum pump
and "C" to vacuum gauge and "E" to
low side manifold gauge.

3. Open valves "F" to charging cylinder

flow from cylinder into system.
Low side gauge pressure should rise
shortly after opening charging cylinder
