Refrig runs on gas for hours then shows Failure light.
« on: May 24, 2023, 06:17:33 am »
I am trying to get ready for a trip and now my refrigerator won't stay lit on gas.  It will run for several hours and then the  fail light comes on.  I checked the burner and the flame is clean bright blue.   Any ideas as to the cause?

You may have a thermocouple that is going bad.  On our previous motorhome we had a problem with the flame going out, but that was caused by a small buildup of rust on the burner which caused the flame to not hit the thermocouple properly.

You can check the Norcold service manual for the fault code.


I have all of my Manuals scanned here: [size=78%]https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1MgYR7L0OgWyMdnFdayno2hSIg-TqxyV7[/size]


Some contributed here in the forum, many from the manufacturer, many I scanned myself.


Look in the folder "major appliances".

Thanks for the replies.  I finally reset a few times and it has been on gas running fine for about eight hours now.   I'll just watch it carefully and see what happens.  This is the first trip this year and maybe it just is mad because it has not been having any fun.

I suspect the problem might have been "organic".  An insect (and its nest or web?) probably burned out and resolved the issue.
