I have a 2014 Viking that just started to over heat. Fan was stuck. (Radiator was spotless never any mud) I have put on a high output fan, jacked front up and bled the system.(according to the threads I have read) It still was pumping coolant into overflow and out the overflow. Put thermostat and fan sensor in, bled the system again. (Several times) Still over heating. Checked water pump and looks good. No water in oil, no steam out exhaust, no leaks. Waiting for tool to check compression but with the compression release I am not sure if I can get a good reading. Can anyone give me any advice ? I have read all the threads about over heating issues and the only thing I can think is the head.

Radiator seems to have a lot of pressure and is pumping water into the overflow before it even reregister hot or fan comes on. Can a blown head gasket pressure rise the coolant system?

I am in the same situation, Argghh!!. 2014 EPS SE, 244 hours, and just put on a new (to me) Denali Pro 72" Plow. After the first snow, (in Maine) it started overheating for the first time ever. It seems like the fan does not come on in the cold, or at least I have never heard it running this winter. I checked the fuse, wiring, resistance on the circuit breaker, relay, and fan runs when powered at the relay. Is there a temp sensor somewhere that may be exposed to the cold making it think it is not actually hot? I thought it may have been mice that also chewed through my light bar wiring harness, but now am thinking it is something else as everything looks good.
'cuz Covid, dealers are more than two months out at best to look at it, which is probably okay having read all the issues everyone else had in other forums. Someone has to have a fix by now.
Please someone help!! If not, I'll be frozen in the same boat with Turkey
