Hi on your model the 5 blinks has shown the refer has shut down and is in the 'no co' mode. This is a feature of the electronics that shuts down the refer if its not cooling properly. Now this feature can malfunction and give you a false error code. First of all was the refer cooling properly prior to the code? And go to the back of the refer open the door and look down where the burner assy is do you see any yellowish discharge? Please get back to me, and I will give you information on how to reset the control module. thanks

I may save you some trouble. I have already grounded pin 15 and heard no click and the symptoms are still there. The refer is still not cooling. I know the ground was good as I went to the outside recepticle ground with 12 ga. wire. THe next thing was to check the thermistor but don't know how to do that.

thanks for responding, sometimes it takes a couple of tries to do the reset, make sure your wire is small enough to get to the pin in the plug. I will forward to you the service manual for your refer, and it has the instructions on how to test the thermister

the 12 ga fit in there good. Also , I tried it 3 or 4 times--all to no avail. Heard no click and the refer is still not working.

set on electric, unplugged?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Set to auto and the RV is plugged to a 30 amp supply. Thermistor suspected?
Expert:  Michael Reush replied 1 year ago.

the thermister is unlikely, never seen it be the issue as far as the reset, unfortunately if the board will now reset, your going to have to replace the board
