Question about Thetford Norcold DE0051 Refrigerator

Open Question

I have a Norcold RV refrigerator Model #N611 problem. The fins had been freezing over on the lowest setting (1). Unit was set in Auto Mode (plugged in - on electricity. The unit will not cool at all now and when turned on, the ON light flashes about every 3 seconds. I've had a RV repair person working on trying to solve the problem and has been in contact withNorcold service technicians several times. The thermister seems to be ok. Technicians recommended replacing the lower control panel which we did and it still does not work. The voltage has been checked, all wires seem to be in place. Is there something else that can be checked without spending any more money such as buying the upper control panel? I am on a fixed income and this elimination process to pinpoint the problem could get very expensive before the problem is found. I'd appreciate any advice you can give us. Thank you. L. Sutton

Go to www.bryantrv.com and go to "service documents" and download the manual for your model "Norcold N Series". It says that 5 blinks then a pause means "no cooling detected by controls" see page 21 & 37.

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.

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:

Norcold model 1200LRIM. Unable to select AC or LP mode. Auto is only option. Fridge frequently quits in Auto mode. No error codes. Display just goes blank. Battery connections are good; voltage is good....


Try to unplug it from the battery a few hours and then plug it back in and see if you are now able to select the AC or LP mode. There has been a recall on the 1200LRIM, The defect is a potential cooling unit leak caused during AC electric mode operation. Click on the link below to read more:

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
