Will your Viking Range repair void the manufacturer’s warranty?
This is an important question to ponder before you randomly choose a Utah appliance repair company at random or, worse, attempt a DIY repair. If you don’t choose your Utah appliance repair service carefully, even the most basic repair can void your warranty.
The Viking Range company manufactures some of the world’s finest professional-grade appliances, made for use in the home. They also provide an exceptional level of warranty coverage. So, before you put your warranty at risk, consider how a service call could affect your coverage.
Viking Range & Appliance Warranty Coverage
The Viking brand is renowned for its exceptional performance, quality and durability. It’s also no secret that these high-end appliances – including ranges, refrigerators and ice makers – require a serious financial investment. But, when you want quality home appliances, you definitely get what you pay for, and Viking is no exception.
The company also provides a highly comprehensive warranty on all its products. For example, the company provides a full, two-year warranty on its freestanding ice machines with a full six-year and a limited 12-year warranty on the sealed refrigeration system components (condenser, evaporator, etc.).
For most Viking ranges, the company provides a full two-year warranty and a limited five-year warranty on gas burners and electric elements.
This coverage is impressive, especially as compared to many other appliance brands. But, to keep your warranty coverage intact for the full edibility period, you have to follow the rules.
The Challenge of Viking Range & Appliance Repair
If you need repair on your Viking appliance during the warranty period, you can only have the work done by a Viking- authorized service technician.
If you have your appliance repair performed by anyone who is not authorized, it may void your warranty immediately. Likewise, if you attempt to open up your appliance and change out a part or troubleshoot a problem, you may also void your warranty.
Viking has a good reason for implementing this strict policy (a policy that many premium appliance brands embrace). These appliances use complex and highly sensitive electronic components, with systems that are unlike most standard appliance configurations. Unless a service technician is specifically trained to handle a Viking appliance, they are likely to cause more problems than they cure.
For that reason, Viking only certifies appliance repair companies whose technicians are specially trained in the service and repair of their products. In addition, authorized repair companies can only use genuine Viking parts in their repairs.
