Question about Thetford Norcold DE0051 Refrigerator
I have this unit in my boat. It was working great until the other day I went to get a cold one and it wasn't cold. It sounds like it wants to work. Oh, my boat partner was getting the ice off the coils a few years ago with an ice pick. Of course he stabbed the coil so I wound up replacing the whole cooling unit about 3 years ago. So it is mostly new except for the box. Help!!
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.
