SOURCE: 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.
Regards

SOURCE: i have a norcold 3163

I have the same model refrigerator in my 1999 Eurovan. Before you leave for your trip, if you haven't used the refrigerator for some time make sure it will light before you leave and run it for awhile. This will help insure it will light when you are camping. A good trick I learned is to light one of the burners on the stove for a minute before you switch the refrigerator to propane. That seems to help. Also, don't release the ignitor button on the refrigerator until 15 to 20 seconds and then do so VERY VERY SLOWLY . One other trick is set the cooling dial in a different position than the "Start" position. If that doesn't work then turn it back to the Start position. Sometimes it takes several times to get the refrigerator to light but once it is it will stay on.

What is issue with my Norcold N3150 not cooling on AC with fault code8?


The "new" refrigerator could have been damaged/defective when you bought it. After all, that door got dented somehow. This should be resolved among you, the seller, and eBay.

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

I know this is a vague question. (trying to help out hubby) I am currently at work, however, our norcold elect/gas fridge/freezer in our mallard camper stopped working properly. the lp gas light is lit,...


Don't be despirate.

You need a little more knowledge ... I'm here to give it.

Your RV refrigerator requires 12 volts to operate; on gas or on electric ... it needs 12 volts - period.

Now then, your frig will get 12 volts from your 'power converter' AND/OR your battery. You do have a battery in your unit, correct? If not - why not? Get one. (Your power converter cannot provide all the 12 volts you potentially require in all circumstances. It is there to charge the battery, which CAN supply all the 12 volts you require. The converter can probably put out 15 amps - your battery can put out 100 amps or more (@ 12 volts DC). Relying only on the converter for your 12 volts will cause over heating and will eventually destroy the converter. Batteries are about $100.00 - converters are about $300.00.

As you know, your frig will run on gas if you are plugged in or on generator ... that allows your frig to get the 12 volts required to run the controls.

What about electric operation? If you are plugged in or on generator, you can run on electric because your Norcold has 12 volts from the converter and/or battery.

Whats going on? Your absorbtion type refrigerator requires a heat source to boil the ammonia mixture to create "heat removing" (you can't really cool anything ... only remove the heat from it!) You can heat the ammonia with a flame or with a electric CALROD. However, the control panel that drives the whole operation runs of 12 volts.

You have a battery and generator and are plugged in and it still doesn't work? You will find a fuse on the control panel in the compartment accessible from the outside of your unit. Check/replace the faulty fuse and you will be back in business.

I hope this helps you and hubby with your Norcold Frig. Thanks for your interest in FixYa.com. If you found this solution to be helpful, please vote. Thanks

My norcold N841 will not cool on AC or Gas it has power and the gas will fire up


Most of the time if the unit has lost a/c gas and 12 volts which puts the unit into a defrost mode so there is a simple reset that can be preformed by unplugging the a/c cord from the back of the fridge and the 12 power going into the control box. leave them disconnected for about 15 mins and then reconnect them in the reverse order and check the inside frezzer at the back and fins on the rightside of the inside of the fridge to see if the unit gets cold
