Our 2007 Jayco Eagle 5th wheel refrigerator stopped cooling…

Our 2007 Jayco Eagle 5th...
Our 2007 Jayco Eagle 5th wheel refrigerator stopped cooling on elec. or propane. We have tried resetting it several times and it still will not cool. The light inside of the unit comes on, but it does not cool. We get the warning signal "5" blinks. Can this be repaired? Ballpark figure of cost to repair? If not repairable, what is the cost in having a new unit? Thanks. Joe

The refrigerator is a Norcold 291 RLTS, 8 cu. ft. Two-door, freezer on the top. Thanks.
RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 7 years ago
OK
Not sure on that model number however on the Norcolds the 5 blinks means no cooling detect by the controls and the board will shut down. This could be a circuit board or cooling unit issue. What you can try to do is a reset at the circuit board... Below are two links for you, it will depend on the type of board you have. IF the code comes back after the fridge has been running it could be a cooling unit issue. A cooling unit can rupture or become blocked, for a rupture you might see a yellowish powder on the back of the fridge, smell ammonia or hear a gurgle when you turn it on... I would try the reset as sometimes low voltage can also trigger that code.

OK. Thank you. We would like to try the reset at the circuit board when we travel to where our 5th wheel is stored. Therefore, we would like to be able to keep in contact with you regarding this situation, which may not be until April or May. There is a lot of snow here right now and the 5th wheel has been winterized. Thanks again.

The model number is ***** FRT and the serial number is(###) ###-####which was located on the door of the refrigerator. We've read the info sent to us through the bryantrv.com link and that did not resolve the issue. We checked the circuits, outside for debris, etc.
RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 7 years ago
OK
So did you try the reset and the code will not go away? Or will it go away and come back?

Hi Robert, I sent you a series of questions but not sure it went to you so I will repeat now.
Could please tell me where the power board is located. Thanks, Joe
RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 7 years ago
OK
No I did not get any questions. The control board will be located under the outside access for the fridge should sit lower left corner and have a plastic cover that you can remove... Robert
