Question about Thetford Norcold RV Cooler/Freezer

1 Answer

My norcold frig(RV) freezes food in lower level

I have an RV norcold refrigerator model#12101M that freezes food below with the temp set as low as it will go, I moved the thermostat as low as it would go on the cooling fin it's mounted on. It does this on both gas and electric. Please help.
Thanks,
herbert phillips

Won't operate in gas mode. Get code with a "wrench 3."


time to get the service person back under warranty
don't try repairs yourself as that voids the warranty
because you had to replace the regulator so early after purchase , it suggests problem in the gas lines(dirt or filings) that have blocked up the gas jets . problems on the other circuits could be again installation faults
I'm sure that you will make your dissatisfaction known to the company

I cannot understand the dual thermostat manual (" rolling " knob type) controls . They are printed in Japanese . There are 2 temp. control knobs side by side located inside the ref. compartment / lowe


Don't think it's the temp control problem, I suspect one on the defrost elements at the top is faulty, if food starting to defrost in the cycle indicates the lower element is working overtime.

Norcold fridge does not stay cold.we turn it to lp gas or electric and it goes to an n.


Quit playing with it ... absorption refrigs work slow ... and do not recover well ... If yours has a thermostat ... set it a little lower ... check it in the morning ... use a thermometer inside. Keep track of the temps.

Putting warm food in the frig will result in a big slowdown in recovery.

Fruits & Veggies are freezing in both lower frig compartments


Good day,
This problem appears in spades this time of year, every year.
The problem becomes more severe when the temperatures in the house cools down and is made even worse if the usage of the machine becomes lighter.

It occurs when the machine is off, not on.
There is an open vent, near the bottom, between the freezer compartment and the fresh food compartment. This opening or vent is necessary when the machine is running, so that the air pumped into the top of the fresh food section, can return to the freezer compartment. This is by design.
Now,
When the machine is off, the zero degree air from the freezer compartment. can drift into the fresh food compartmnet and drop the temps near the bottom to below freezing.
Off time increases substantialy at this time of year.
Some have even recommended turning the controls colder to offset the problem, but I've no proof it works well, or even a little.
SXS and top freezer models experience it more than bottom freezer models.

Freezer works ok but the fridge doesn't


are you running gas to oper the frig in the rv or electricty if only using the heating element for the frig RV STYLE ONLY maybe starting to make and break causing intermittent cooling or not enough cooling in frig but at all thing concerned try to increase you temp setting higher if you have that option

Food freezing in refrigerator section of frig.


look under your refridgerator and see if there is alot of dust on the coils. Whenever food starts freezing in my fridge I vacuum the coils and the problem goes away.
