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.

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 You do not quote the model so not sure if a 3 way (gas/mains/12v) or AC/DC.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 website.
Good Luck

Norcold 3163 Fridge

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 2 way fridge. The propane will

It is possible that the switch is giving you fits. Easiest way to check is to find where the DC voltage goes to the circuit board. Put a meter across the connections and read the DC voltage.

A poor ground can also cause this as well, and is quite common. Remove the DC connections, and make sure that they are bright and shiny. Also make sure that the connections are tight, both in the wire, as well as any crimp connectors. Check for corrosion on crimp connectors in the sleeves, if possible.

Your 10second problem can also be attributed to another cause as well. The thermocouple electrode assembly is very sensitive to placement in the flame, as well as spacing of each "prong".

If you have a multimeter, also check the "AC" voltage as found on the DC supply. You should not have more than a few hundred millivolts of ripple (noise?) present. Very much more can cause erratic operation as well.
