What Is the Reset Code for a Viking Refrigerator?

There is no specific code for resetting a Viking refrigerator. But if you are seeing an error code, there is a specific way to reset it:

Error Code CL: It means the condenser coils need to be cleaned. Cleaning them and powering the unit on and off will remove the error code.

Error Code Lo: It means the temperature in the refrigerator is too low or cold. Reset it by increasing the temperature from the controls.
