I did a hard reset on my norcold n811 fridge because the green light was flashing 5 times. the panel made one clicking noise and the flame came on and was a nice steady blue flame. after the fridge ran for about 2 hours the green light starts flashing 5 times again and the fridge and freezer are not cold inside. I have made sure that the burner chimney is not covered by any debris or insulation. is there any other thing that i can check myself? i need to use the trailer in a few days and cant find a shop nearby to check it out.thanks, john

Good morning,I have a Buderus SST300-80 indirect water heater and notice that during the summer months when we have higher than normal humidity, there is water that leaks out of the bottom of the unit. The heater is only 4 years old and this doesn't occur during the other months of the year. Has anyone ever experienced anything like this and what would cause this?
