Our Norcold refrigerator displays a message of Src after we switch from electric to propane...if we shut it off for five minutes then restart it seems to work okay, but is this something we need to be concerned about?

Hi. I'm Smitty. I am a professional appliance repair consultant here to help you diagnose, and repair, your appliance.

The error code indicates a failure in the flame sensing circuit.

Unfortunately the solution is to replace the main control board, but it isnt hard to do that.

For now the unit is working after a resetting of the power. Soon it will fail to restart after unplugging it.

Please see the page below for the replacement instructions. The board can be purchased at most all RV centers, major brand big rig repair facilities, and major marinas.

If it is the flame sensing circuit, will it be okay if we are running totally on electric?

Sorry for the delay replying, Kathleen. Yes that will be fine. The electric and gas use two diffrent sections of the control board.

Thank you.

Do you still need help with your unit, Kathleen?
