Customer Question
I have a norcold n611l...
I have a norcold n611l. Runs fine on 120 but on gas it's sporatic. Runs from an hour or sometimes 3 or so hours. Then it shuts down.
both light blink about once a sec. When it quits I've replaced connectors to board but didn't help. blue flame when it's on....
is it possible the selinoid gas valve is faulty, or more of a board problem? ***@******.***. it's in a 2008 tahoe. Thanks in advance for any help

The most likely culprit here is the thermocouple or the strength of the gas flame
When its on gas, does the unit get cold enough?
Thanks
