Norcold mod 1200 does not cool well in Az. during the summer time

I understand if the fridge was out in the middle of the desert, but mine is in my RV at about a 75 degree interior temp. It works ok if outside ambient temp is less than a 100 degees. The freezer works well, I've done all the simple things ie, small fan to circulate air, don't pack stuff to tight, put things in that are cold to start with etc.

Help would be much appreciated

Norcold model 1200LRIM. Unable to select AC or LP mode. Auto is only option. Fridge frequently quits in Auto mode. No error codes. Display just goes blank. Battery connections are good; voltage is good....


Try to unplug it from the battery a few hours and then plug it back in and see if you are now able to select the AC or LP mode. There has been a recall on the 1200LRIM, The defect is a potential cooling unit leak caused during AC electric mode operation. Click on the link below to read more:

Norcold N1095 model stopped working during very cold weather spell. No defaults codes at all showing--just will not cool down. AC and LP both work fine. Refrig just stopped cooling. Contacted norcold...


I have the same problem with my extra fridge in the garage. It has to do with the oil used as a refrigerant in newer models. The cold temprature thickens the oil and it stops cooling. Nothing you can do about it other than opening the door to the fridge to warm the insides up. It works for me. And thank god it's only when it gets very cold outside that this happens. Ps...my garage is insulated and drywalled and it still occors during cold spells.

RV freezer cools, but fridge section doesn't


Sir, To solve this problem, you must open the compressor area at the back bottom of the refrigerator and chek the temperature of the pressure line. If the temperature is between 55celcius to 60 than its ok. Or else you need to change the refrigerant. I suggest you to contact the service authority.

Thanks for contacting Fixya.
