So What I would do is make sure the burner tube is clean, it sits below the electrode or what sparks, if something was inside of that it could cause issues, I would also clean the flue canister out, you may have done these things but want to stress how important it is for the burner tube and flue to be clean.

Next I would pull the gas orifice and soak it in alcohol OR replace it, if it was gummed up it could cause this issue.

Make sure you also have good DC voltage going into the circuit board as well as low voltage and cause problems.

Finally I might have the SYSTEM pressure checked with a manometer, to make sure it is in range, that takes about 1/2 hour in the shop to check line pressure and do a leak down test.

IF you can get me the model number of the Norcold I may be able to get a service manual for you, IF you have other questions or concerns please feel free to follow up.
