Question about Thetford Norcold RV Cooler/Freezer

2 Answers

Describe your Thetford Norcold RV Cooler/Freezer Problem My 8662 won't get cold in the refrigerator, but the freezer gets cool-not cold either. The manual says to check the evaporator plate and make sure it is level in every direction. I would do this but the manual fails to tell me where the evaporator plate is located. Do they mean the coils and are they underneath the refrigerator?We are trying to leave for a vacation and are already a day late. Hopefully someone could answer my question ASAP. I would be eternally grateful!!

    When you say door "side" or "backside" do you mean in the door or againstg the back? If so There isn't anything like that unless I need to remove a part of the refrigerator to get to it.
    I need more complete instructions as I am not very mechanical.
    Also, could you give me the title for those numbered parts in the ilustration?
    Thanks

    We do not have a defrost problem.
    Refrigerator does not work-Freezer works partially on both electricity and propane-same thing. Refer won't get cold at all.

This site has a general troubleshooting guide on it's page:

From what that states, the coils are behind the back plate, and here are some pictures that may help you:

Clean the tube and flue 1 and see if that helps.
Good luck, and thanks for using FixYa, and hope this gets your unit working (and have a great vacation!)

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.

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.
