Open Question

My norcold model 6162 rv fridge will not fire up on propane. It worked twoays ago today not. I have power and propane both are full 120 ac works. Seems like gas valve and ignighter might be at fault. The electronic module makes a clicking sound when switched on/off.

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.

SOURCE: 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.

Norcold 682 is 0 in freezer and 50 in fridge cranked all the way up over 48 hrs now where do i look now


How about checking the R12 charge? Or you can run the fridge on propane and see if it gets colder. Which might mean your compressor is going bad.
