I have a Norcold model 963 RV fridge. Out of the blue, it started

I have a Norcold model 963 RV fridge. Out of the blue, it started blowing 3amp fuses. The fuse is accessible from the outside, under a black cover. I replace the fuse, and it blows immediately. Any suggestions?

Thanks for counting on us to help with your appliance problem. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I look forward to helping you! You have a short to ground in the wiring somewhere or some electronic component is shorted. Have you inspected the wiring for issues, especially where they go through holes into the cabinet?

No, I haven't checked the wiring for issues, but I will now.

Okay, play close attention to any areas where the wires are fit into a grommet or small opening. They tend to rub and short there.

Kelly, I found that the electrical outlet dedicated to the refrigerator had a short in it. I disconnected it and bypassed it with an extension cord. So, it is working now! I'm going to install a new outlet so I don't have to run it off the extension cord. Thank you, Kelly!


Case closed, good job.



That is great news, thanks for the update. Very well done, nice find!
