Hi my name is Robert...
What is the model of the Norcold?
Also can you go to the outside access panel and look for a small black box with a single led light on it? Need to know if you see that box and the LED is ON, it would be red..... Robert

im at work, so i dont know the model # ***** outside panel plugs into an outlet, but there is no power to that outlet. i plugged something in to test it. the front of the fridge has a sliding switch to change the temp, and a selector for auto/gas/or electric. these light up, but i dont see any lights on the panel on the inside of the access panel.
RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 7 years ago
OK
All the fridge needs to turn ON is DC power, so it should at least be working on LP...
IF you can get the model number and get back to me it will help allot, I am around daily and respond when I can, just respond back to this when you are ready...

the front of the refig. is lit. the heater/propane is not heating the refrigerant, when i pulled the blade type fuse in the back panel, it stopped making a buzzing sound, and it resumed when i plugged it back in. the slow blo glass fuse is unblown
RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 7 years ago
OK
Do you have a volt meter, need to check what the DC voltage is going into the fridge. Also if the lights are flashing inside on the fridge need to know which ones and how many times, sometimes for faults it will give a code.

the green one flashes 5 times then pauses, then 5 times again. dont have a volt meter. ive got it plugged in to ac at this time. when i unplug from ac, lights go off on fridge.
RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 7 years ago
OK
The 5 times means the controls are locked out. What you are going to have to do is reset the circuit board. It will depend on the board you have. Below are two links for you with the reset procedure, copy and paste each link into your browser and you can see the circuit board and how to clear that code. It is the only way to get that fault to go away. IF the fault does not clear and the board is buzzing I suspect it has failed. Also verify the incoming voltage to the board it should be around 12 volts.
The AC cord plug in not working should not have anything to do with this, all the fridge needs is DC power to work on LP.....
