SOURCE: whirlpool a class freezer

Red Light : Alarm high temperature.
Amber Light : Fast freeze function (ie ignores thermostat and keeps unit freezing all the time).
Green light: mains power.

If you have lost temperature on a freezer it is usually a major fault either the compressor has failed or you have lost charge (possibly the start relay). If you are able to get to the rear of the unit and check the compressor, if it is hot then it is more likely a major fault. A good fridge guy can normally tell the problem within a short time of inspecting the unit. Sorry to not sound hopeful. Good luck.

i assume this is a frost-free type.
remove the back panel inside the freezer and check if the pipework is frozen up. if so, melt the ice off with a hairdryer and get back to me for further details

SOURCE: thetford caravan fridge freezes all food in fridge

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
Thank you for using Fixya

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 You do not quote the model so not sure if a 3 way (gas/mains/12v) or AC/DC.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 have a thetford N80 fridge fitted in my motorhome that pops the rcd until I cool it down using gas


it is drawing too much current and is a fire risk
there is a live wire touching the metal frame or the motor has locked up.
the rcd is saving you from having a fire or being electrocuted
can you find a local dealer who can diagnose/repair?

Also keep in mind that these units are very sensitive to being leveled; even a minor tilt will cause them to quit cooling. These units are not equipped with compressors as are home refrigerators which are not quite as fussy as the evaporative type.

No power to refrigerator unless it is hooked up direct. Think it is 12 volt dc supply connection. Could this be the problem only able to get partial # on part c1c 5122 is all we can read.


there is an inverter built in to the power supply that converts dc to ac to run the compressor if the fuse is ok. you will have to replace the supply . or for traveling you could hook up a small inverter to opperate the fridge while traveling this could be connected to the 12 vlt line for fridge power as it will not take much more power than the the fridge needs.

Carbon monoxide into motorhome when using fridge


Check vent panels, on outside, as well as any roof vent for fridge to make sure no obstructions, that would stop the flow of fumes from flame, as well as check the flame on burner is nice and blue, and not orange, indicating rich mixture, which causes excessive fumes.

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

Red light is just a reed switch that turns on the LED when a floating magnet inside the cassette floats up (when the cassette is full) and switches on the reed switch thereby switching on the LED. It just tells you the cassette is full and you need to empty it.
I'd say either your button or electric valve is broken. All the button does is allow the electric valve to break the seal that allows water to flow from your onboard water system.
I'll assume that the water in the rest of your motorhome is working?
So check the switch first.
You can lever off the switch/LED panel and remove the square connector from the back of the button. Get a multimeter and set it to either Continuity or Resistance (Ohms). Place the connectors on 2 of the switch pins and press the switch (the switch is actually 2 switches with 4 pins, but each pair of pins is connected together) - if you get a beep (if multimeter on continuity) or low resistance reading (if on resistance) then the switch is working - if this is the case then it's probably the electric valve. If the switch is not working, then that's your culprit.
When you replace the connecter you can replace it either way round.

Thetford fridge type C11[fitted to caravan]model N80 PL R


This Caravan is a recreational vehicle? If you have an ammonia absorption refrigerator in the unit, and you smell ammonia, your fridge is leaking. This can be a health hazard. Park the unit and get the fridge serviced, they are repairable by independant service personnel. There are only 2 in Ontario Canada. If you go to an RV shop, the will only want to sell you a new fridge.

Good luck, try a search in your area for ammonia absorption refrigerator repair in your area.
