Hi my name is Robert....
I would try to reset that sensor with a magnet, if it does not reset it could be faulty, make sure you also have good DC voltage going into the sensor, low voltage can cause these to trip.

LED FLASH FAST (On/Off ~2 or 3 times per second): could mean that the sensor is not connected to the recall kit. Or, the sensor that can be identified by red and yellow wires has an open circuit. Remove the plug found between the +12VIN and +12VOUT wires put a jumper between these wires. If the light quits flashing you found your problem.
LED FLASH SLOW (On/Off ~once per second): could mean that the voltage supplied to your fridge is too low. In some documents the low voltage for a typical RV fridge is 10.5VDC, but this is just a rule of thumb. Customers have stated that the low voltage threshold is 9.5VDC on the Norcold recall. Use your volt meter to find the connection that has high resistance or charge your batteries. Also, failed inverter charging systems can cause problems. In this case, disconnect your rig from shore power and make sure your batteries are fully charged to continue searching for a high resistance connection that can lead to a voltage drop in your system. Please start at the RV source of power, which should be a fuse block.

You should NOT leave the sensor bypassed at ALL... Just for testing....
I see you requested a phone service but it did not go through, the company has an added fee for that.
IF you need more help please let me know, IF you are satisfied with my efforts please feel free to select a rating at the top of the page. IF you would still like a phone call I can send you the request... Robert
I am not sure what else you need. IF you bypassed the sensor and it worked then a new sensor should take care if the issue..... The sensor should come with detailed instructions for the wiring.

Can you tell me if the flame is going, is it trying to spark etc......
When you try and run it on LP do you hear it trying to spark??? IF you unplug the RV and it is running on AC power it should switch over to LP and you should hear it spark when it does that.... Robert
You should have voltage to the gas valve when it is sparking, the circuit board will send a signal to the electrode and gas valve at the same time, you should hear it click 1 time, if you are not hearing the solenoid click and you have voltage going to it and not smelling gas it is bad, IF you like I can send you a service manual with detailed troubleshooting??
