Norcold n821 problems

About once a day the fridge would be off. Sometimes twice. Then maybe it would run for 2 days and go off again. Completely. No signs of anything. I put the on button and it would go on again for another day or half a day. It does this whether it is on power or propane. Can you help me please? I can't figure out what could be wrong. Betty

Two possible causes, thermostat or low on coolant, of the two the thermostat is the likely suspect, you may be able to get one on-line from e-spares, you could ask a local service agent to check it out first, then you can compare options.

SOURCE: freezer fine /After power went out twice fridge not cold enough

In back of the refrigerator is a removable panel behind which is the compressor. Listen for a hum and a click. If you hear those sounds the compressor may have failed. Behind that same panel is a condenser where heat is removed from the refrigerating system. Make sure it is clean and check that the fan operates when the compressor runs.

SOURCE: reset Norcold 'N61 Series' Fridge after lockout

Hi Lynn1965,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Yor problem is: Please help! Your brother phoned you on his cell from up north. He's supposed to go hunting tomorrow, and is having problems with his fridge. The nearest dealer is 5 hours away, and he's very upset.
The fridge went into lockout mode after accidentally resetting twice. Now, the lights flash, and fridge doesn't work.
Please advise how he can fix this problem himself. You both would greatly appreciate it!!

First, unplug the unit for 10 minutes. That should reset it. If not, ask if he can here the compressor motor. If not, then he has a compressor or electrical failure inside. If yes then look to a bad thermostat.

Feel free contact me again!

SOURCE: Fridge keeps tripping electricity

I assume by "earth leakage" you mean it is on a GFI circuit? Some older GFI outlets are sensitive to and do not work well with motors or other inductive loads like your refridgerator compressor. As for the compressor feeling hot, this is usually normal.

If this is a GFI outlet, try replacing it with new unit. If it is a GFI breaker, try replacing that.

Norcold model N302 3R fridge wouldn't light on propane.I cleaned burner and ofice and now it lights easily but keeps going out.


Igniter could be bad. You have to remember the flame will go off and on many times a day as the thermostat kicks the temperature on and off. Igniters do not last forever.

Where can I get a repair manual for a Hotpoint Fridge


Hi,

First of all, the model number you gave is not complete. But check you defrost system in the freezer, when the refer section stops cooling, your evaporator in the freezer is possibly full of ice and the fan won't move air through ice. When the refer sections fails to cool, check for a fan in the freezer. If it works, you have a defrost problem and is occurs every 3 - 5 days. The unit should defrost once or twice a day. Good Luck

Refer Norcold DE 0051 not getting cold


Your cooling unit is shot, I suggest. Most likely, you've lost the R341 refrigerant. Norcold, so they can sell you another cooling unit at $500+, does not make these little fridges with a service port so you can recharge the system. Same with Dometic. Solution is to spend, again, $500+ for a new sealed unit that will fail in relatively short order (I'm on my second in five years) or buy a better refrigerator. I'm opting for a new fridge this go around (Vitrifrigo). Vitrifrigo has the needed service port.
