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

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?

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.

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.

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 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.
