Hi, what is the model number of the refrigerator? located on a data sticker in the box. thanks
thanks any chance it is 628 norcold?
thanks, go outside, and check to see if there is power at the outlet the refer is plugged into, open the door and check with a volt meter, if its there, turn the refer off, then put it on auto, let me know what happens, thanks
take your time, I will be here
thanks. go inside and put the control on gas, toggle the switch back and forth a bit to see if you can get the check light to go off. The control board is stuck in the failure mode. If when you toggle the switch the light goes off. Shut it off and change to auto, we are trying to get rid of the x it should when first turned on go on, then go off in a short amount of time
yes, lets try to get it out of the failure mode. we need to catch it between when the x comes on, and it goes out when it goes into the ignition sequence, and before it fails again with no propane lighting
toggle to the gas side, the light should go on, then off shortly, when it goes off, go to off...............Then after 30 seconds go to auto... the x failure is not used when on electric only gas, so its telling me we are not getting the control out of the gas mode. Another thing to check is this.........go to the back of the refer. take the cover off of the lower board, make sure the plug is unplugged from the outlet, and check the fuses on the control board, thanks
look at the back of the refer, you will see two plastic boxes on the left lower, the bottom on is the control take the cover off, you will see fuses behind the cover, unscrew the nut you see on the cover
fuses are outside, look to the left lower you will see the control module, remove the cover.......................
I'll be here
the glass tubes are the fuses. make sure the refer is unplugged, and check the fuses
If the filament is broken, it is bad... Normally we check the fuses with a voltmeter. checking for voltage at each clip. Or putting the voltmeter on continuity, checking the fuse itself by touching both ends of the fuse with one and then the other probe
Unfortunately, you need a meter to go any further, we need to check to see if the heater is good, this is a continuity check. If fuses are good, and 120 vac is available at the outlet, and it wont change over to electric, the control is bad.
Before I did that I would get a voltmeter, and finish testing...........I know your in a jamb, At this point there is no repair you can do remotely without parts. And yes you can hood up a portable bottle to the refer, you need the bottle, hose and a regulator.
your welcome please take this time to rate me, as this is how I receive credit for our work together, we can communicate after the rating
I'm here yes, take your time
I'll be here when your ready
