There is a very likely possibility that the resistance heater for the 12 Volt side of the operation is open. This heater can be checked for continuity using an OHM meter from the terminals for the 12 volt .

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 You do not quote the model so not sure if a 3 way (gas/mains/12v) or AC/DC.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

I don't have a Thetford but my Dometic used to do that also. I went to the hardward store and bought velcro stick ons and that has worked great from me, even on some of the rough roads.

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:

Thetford N90 EL.L built-in has stopped cooling/freezing. It has power (the light is on) Any repair suggestions?


If it won't cool on all 3 power sources the cooling unit is probably faulty. Contact Thetford asap if the unit is uner 3 years old as it should be under warranty. Thetford won't sell a replacement cooling unit, their only answer is that you need to buy a new fridge at over £600. I have this problem too and am looking for another solution but to luck so far

Thetford caravan fridge freezes all food in fridge does anyone else have this problem / what can be done? Not sure of actual model but on manual says N80 - N150


Thats a Norcold compact fridge. The most likley problem would be the thermister. Need to do an ohms reading. From inside of the fridge remone the thermister from the fins and unplug the wires. With a VOM set it on Ohms, touch the wires with the probes/ does not matter which probe to wire/ hold the bulb end of the thermister between your fingers, your reading should stat at about 7000 Ohms. Stick the bulb end of the thermister in a glass of ice water, reading should start climbing and go to about 22000 Ohms. If this happens the thermister is good and you need to look elsewhere. If it does not test out you need to replace the thermister. The thermister is a thermostat that controls the heat source that makes the fridge cool. If the thermister reads good you may want to get the circuit board tested.
Hope this helps
