Hi my name is***** is the model of the Norcold? Are you getting any codes and it is only not working on AC power? Robert

Customer reply replied 7 years ago

Norcold 1200, code "no co" did not work on AC to start with. I contacted Just answer last month and tried all that was suggested. LP worked for a while but then stopped, also. when working cooled and froze good. ice maker even worked. there are no leaks.

RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 7 years ago
OK Not sure IF I worked with you on this or not, do you have a sensor on the back of the fridge, it will have a LED light on a small box, need to know if that is ON.... Robert

I don't know. Husband not here to go check. What would it be sensoring?

RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 7 years ago
On that model they had a high temp sensor recall done, it will be a small black box under the outside access panel and will have a led on it, if the LED is ON then the fridge will not work... Need to know if that light is ON, it would not be mentioned in the manual.... Robert

Customer reply replied 7 years ago

we have had something attached after the recall; I assume it was that.

RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 7 years ago
OK... See if the light is ON... Also No Co means no cooling detected by the controls, have you tried to reset the circuit board? Robert
Ask Your Own RV Question
Customer reply replied 7 years ago

We have not reset the new board. Should that be done? Also may I recontact you in alittle while when my husband returns?

RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 7 years ago
Yes you can contact me, I am around daily and respond when I can. IF you have the NO CO code and the light for the sensor is OFF then a reset can be done to get that code to go away.... Robert

Robert, I'm back on. The LED light is not burning.

RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 7 years ago
OK So if you have the NO CO code you can try and reset the board. What you need to know is the NO CO is no cooling detected by the controls, so if the code comes back it could be a cooling unit issue. It will depend on the reset because they have two different circuit boards. Click HERE and HERE to view the reset.... Robert

Customer reply replied 7 years ago

Will try this; do you do both or just one. When the sensor was installed, they used the # ***** and 14 pin. Can another pin be used?

RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 7 years ago
IT depends on the board on which reset you do. Not sure about the sensor and why they would tie into pin 15 and 14 the reset has to be done exact as the manual indicates, I might disconnect the sensor wires if you have to.,... Robert

Will removing the fault code allow the power to come back on?

RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 7 years ago
OK IT would or should reset the NO CO code, if you do not have power at all to the fridge, unplug the cord and then remove the cover on the circuit board and make sure you do not have a fuse blown... Robert

Customer reply replied 7 years ago

We have electrical power to refrigerator and it is a brand new board and brand new heating elements. Unit was cooling and freezing before the "brain" went out. Will try reset in the morning.

If I need to contact you again do I need a work item #?

Have reset board and "no co" code gone. Have unit set manually on AC; now getting code "LI oP" which I cannot find in manual. ????

RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 7 years ago
OK.... With that code it means hi temp condition. On the back of the fridge is the LED light ON for the sensor now? The sensor will have wires going to the flue canister and circuit board.... Robert
Ask Your Own RV Question
Customer reply replied 7 years ago

Had unplugged sensor when replaced now reading no co again.

RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 7 years ago
OK You are starting to get to the point where it could be a bad component such as the circuit board, cooling unit or even that sensor. I might have a shop take a look at this, the only reason being each part is very spendy. Normally the No Co means the controls have locked the fridge out for a high temp condition, if the fridge runs and then the code comes up then could be a bad cooling unit, the remedy is to reset and get the code cleared. The sensor is also tied into the circuit and will also give a code which is what you saw when it was not hooked up. Just to be sure the led light has not failed on the sensor get a magnet and run it along the box and see if it will reset. Inside is a reed switch and the magnet might reset it, sometimes it works and sometimes it does not.... Robert

Will try this. If it resets what should we expect to happen next?

the magnet we used was not real strong but we tried anyway. We still are getting the no co code. Thanks for your help.
