Question about Thetford Norcold RV Cooler/Freezer

We have a Norcold model N811FLT, it is connected to power, but is continuously running on gas. We've tried resetting it with no change. Could it be the power board or the control board?

A board reset will not fix this. It's either not sensing AC current because the AC heater isn't connected properly, isn't ohming out properly, or because the board isn't able to sense it. Connection, a bad heater, or a bad board. All parts are available through a company that gives full technical support for you. I highly recommend using The Norcold Guy:

You can reset the control board . to do this you must ground the # 15 terminal with a jumper wire to ground. this is usually the terminal next to the white & violet wire. check diagram.

SOURCE: How do you reset circuit board on norcold refrigerator

No way to do that other than to unplug refrigerator for at least ten minutes and then plug back in. Don't use surge protector, power strip, or extension cord.

Sounds like the unit may not have enough DC power. See the manual.

I have a Winni Minni with Norcold refrigerator 682. I have change board and element,but its not working on electric only on gas, prpblems ?? I live in Norway.


Sounds like your selector knob may net be making proper contact with electricity. You have changed everything else. You could check power available with a multimeter to your element. If power not available to your element, back trace to source and check for burned wires or breaks in wiring.
Hope this helps!

Norcold fridge in my motorhome


Norcold fridges are now part ofThetford one of the largest suppliers of mobile and marine products. You do not quote the model so not sure if a 3 way (gas/mains/12v) or AC/DC. The most common problem with all mobile fridges is the heater unit is faulty. Thetford have discontinued spares for a large range of norcold models. Information can be obtained on the Thetfold.com website.
Good Luck

There is a 3 amp.fuse in the wiring behind the control panel or somewhere between the control panel and the terminal block. If the fuse is blown do not replace with any higher amperage rating more than 3 amps. Here is a Norcold 3163 Service Manual On page 10 of the service manual shows all of the components that the ac power goes through. Let me know what you find and I will be here to answer any questions you may have, Thanks Sea Breeze

I have a Norcold 323 Refrigerator in a camper that will not cool when operating on AC but does work on gas, ( I cant test the DC as I dont have a 12 volt power sorce). After running in on gas for a while...


the unit runs on gas(LPG) so the unit is operational
by ac I take it you mean mains power and by dc you mean 12 volts it being a 3 way cooler
you cannot "jump start" a gas system so I am a bit lost with that statement
check the heating element in the unit for continuity as both the mains and 12 volt power only heat and element that boils of the coolant liquid in the system the same as the lpg flame does
it could be a relay problem for the electrical part

Fridge wont get cold with gas


This is worth a try. Disconect the gas and power make sure the pilot light is out. Turn the fidge unside down overnight then unright again. Try it on gas agian. This worth a couple of goes before giving up.

Norcold Fridge will not work on LP gas while traveling.


One of two problems. The auto switch is bad or the lower circuit board is not doing its job. You can call norcold technical or take the board to a service center and have it checked with the tester they should have. The lower board retails for 176.00. I looked at my tech file and it is a little vague on your particular situation. If I were repairing your fridge I would take the smart route and call technical. Hope you get your problem solved. If you need more help please feel free.

Make sure the thermister is attached firmly to the fins in the back. The boards on a Norcold can be reset a service center familiar with this process is your best bet. It takes disconecting the board and then shorting it out best to leave it to some one who is familiar.
