My gas option will not light on my Norcold 876EG2

My frig will not light when turned to gas. However works fine on electric. I think it's in the switch. Is there a way to manually light the frig with gas from the back.

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.

I have the same problem and I'm not going to pay 500 dollars to get it fixed. That's why i go to these forums.

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: Frig will not cool

I had a similar problem. One thing that I need to know is is it cooling at all? If everything is operating, but no cooling occurs, you may have a bad board. This controls all of the components. Getting it replaced could be pretty pricey. Good luck, and please rate.

Won't operate in gas mode. Get code with a "wrench 3."


time to get the service person back under warranty
don't try repairs yourself as that voids the warranty
because you had to replace the regulator so early after purchase , it suggests problem in the gas lines(dirt or filings) that have blocked up the gas jets . problems on the other circuits could be again installation faults
I'm sure that you will make your dissatisfaction known to the company

My Norcold N611 frig code flashes 3 time every few second and doesn't go into A/C mode and will only go into gas mode when the switch is in auto mode and the interior light stays on even when the


The N611 will flash 3 times as an AC heater fault. If your AC heaters are ohming out properly (48 ohms of resistance), then you have a bad power board. If the AC heaters are not showing around 48 ohms of resistance, replace the AC heater. It's going to be one of the two. Here is an article on it:

Noticed refrig quit working , (elc/gas) . noticed yellow stain when inspection door was opened . " ammonia " ?


If you smell or see evidence of ammonia, your refrig is finished. Check the ststus of your warranty before you do anything. Go to the manufacturers web site for particulars on the warranty.

You can rebuild your frig with a replacement coolng unit. I tried that and I got a marginal year use as the result of my effort and $. At the end of that camping year, I purchased a replacement NorCold unit with more features. The replacement cooling unit cost me about $300.00 (I did the labor) and the new frig cost over $1,200.00 (I installed it). If you exclusively camp where there is power and it is not a long distance between where you are and where you go, you can replace the unit with a electric only frig for about $125.00. I don't think I would spend a lot of $ on a used unit, but that may be an option for you. The status of a used unit is not known until you get it installed. You can make your own decision which system is best for you.

Norcold fridge does not stay cold.we turn it to lp gas or electric and it goes to an n.


Quit playing with it ... absorption refrigs work slow ... and do not recover well ... If yours has a thermostat ... set it a little lower ... check it in the morning ... use a thermometer inside. Keep track of the temps.

Putting warm food in the frig will result in a big slowdown in recovery.

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
