Your refrigerant may have completely separated in the system. Shut of the gas, disconnect the electrical and remove refrigerator from the coach or if you have sufficient room inside set it on a clean area. This operation is what is called burping the system.
1. From the base roll it onto the door and wait five minutes.
2. roll it onto the top and wait five minutes.
3. Roll it on the back and wait five minutes.
4. Return it to the base and wait five minutes.

Reinstall it or test it on electrical. It should show signs of cooling in about 30 minutes in the freezer compartment if the system is not plugged in the boiler.

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 .

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

Thetford n97 fridge runs ok on electic for 6 hours then flashes up diagnostic No 14 and stops working


Error code 14 usually means that the powerboard is faulty. This would require replacing, it is found in a black box at the rear of the fridge.

How do i stop the shelves in my Thetford N112 caravan fridge from jumping out of their slots, when i'm travelling? Yes! i have attached the shelf clips correctly. I'm using a washing peg to hold...


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.

Hi our thetford cassette toilet (c200)blows the fuse every time we touch the flush button.can anyone please help. WE have only had the caravan for two days and has never worked. THANKS


Probably the rotor has come to a stand still (carbonade). I suggest you will clean the rotor with an house-hold acid liquid (like the one for cleaning coffeemachines).

Hi, have a built in thetford toilet in my caravan. The pump has stopped working. How do I check and remove the pump if required? Thanks Rosco


Don't send money. Just go to thetford.com and download info.
Some tips - if seal is old and breaking up make sure you recover all the bits which have fallen into the flush water tank. If new o-ring seal not available use outdoor silicone sealant and allow to set for 48 hours before adding anything other than a small amount of water to test flush action. Electric circuit includes a fuse and microswitch which are both contained within the flush water tank but you are unlikely to have problems with these items.
