Try manually lighting the pilot when it is clicking. If it lights you need a new thermo couple let us know what you find out from this step

Norcold fridge berps and display says No flame


check for a gas shut off inside the fridge cabinet as well. You may have to bleed all the air out of the lines before the fridge will get gas. either keep trying or run stove burners to make sure gas is working. Also look for debris inside the burn chamber near the thermocouple/pilot light.
I had rust fall from the exhaust tube and block the burner area. Cleaned it up and it works fine now.

HitI have a Norcold N641 that is having ignition problems. It lights but the igniter keeps clicking and times out shutting off the gas. Occasionally it will stay on but usually it does not.


Check the flame, if there is a clinker (soot) in any part of the flame the signal will not be picked up, or sensed, if there is flick it off, and you should be good to go.

1996 Komfort trailer, model 9182 Norcold fridge. Works great on 110V, recently it suddenly quit on the gas mode. It tries to light and flame flame comes on, but once the ignition sequence and sparking is...


The electrode that ignites the burner,also senses flame to keep burner going. Sounds like it's defective. I'd replace it, but take old one with you to match it up.

Gas will not stay lit the lighter wil ignite for about 4 seconds then diminish


Your propane supply may be nearly exhausted, or your gas valve is having trouble staying open.

To check the gas valve, you will need a helper. Turn the fridge off. Open the lower outside vent. Put a finger on the gas valve. Ask helper to turn it on, you should feel the solenoid snap. If you don't feel it release and flame dies out, then gas valve may be defective. Measure the voltage with a multimeter instead of using finger. If voltage remains when flame dies, then defective gas valve.

If the gas valve snaps shut and then flame dies, you are looking at a corroded / damaged / misaliged flame sense. You will need a service manual, or the procedure to clean may be listed in the owner's manual. Either way, clean the electrode assembly, and reassemble. If still same problem, follow high tension wire back to circuit board, and make sure it is on good and tight with clean connections. If still not working, the replace the electrode assembly. If it remains inoperable, then circuit board may be defective. Most RV shops now have the ability to test circuit boards before purchasing a replacement.

I have a freezer that does not work it clicks on for a few sec then cuts off what could be wrong


The clicking is the electronic ignitor trying to light the gas.
Either it's not getting any gas to light , or the flame sensor is not telling the computer that there is flame , so it shuts down the gas.
Most fridges have a small shut off right at the gas valve in the back of the fridge , it might be turned off. Put your ear up to the back cover of the fridge , if you hear it sparking and then you hear flame but it goes out after a few seconds , than it is the flame sensor. If you never hear the flame blowing , than it is not getting gas. Could be several different reasons. If you have disconected your tanks , maybe the gas has just not made it to the fridge yet. Newer ignitors try 3 times and then shut down if no flame is detected. Old ones only try once.

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

Thetford Fridge N112


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 .
