I have a 2008 Winnebego Tour with a NorCold double door

I have a 2008...

I have a 2008 Winnebego Tour with a NorCold double door Freezer an Refrigerator w/Ice maker. It runs on AC and LP, but is not getting Cold?

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you know the model of your Norcold freezer? How old is it?

Model 1211IM

Mechanic's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your Norcold freezer? What have you tried so far?

Just started this year after sitting for winter 5 months. Took the cover off the RV and plugged it in. Had to do a manual Reset.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

I did find some yellow dust near the propane burner and when I looked in? It was light but could see it easy. I vacuumed it all out and checked the burner. I removed the lower insulation to get a better look. the tubes has a little on them too.

Good morning! I have an RV repair facility and work on these systems for a living. When you find that "yellow dust" there that means that the cooling unit has failed. Sorry that isn't good news! You can get rebuilt cooling units for these and it would be great if you have an extended warranty policy as those usually cover this sort of repair. Randall

No extended warranty darnCould I blame it on a power Serge while it was plugged in all winter
RV Mechanic: Randall, RVIA Certification replied 2 years ago

Not likely. Sorry that isn't good news. Maybe check the price on rebuilt units compared to new. Not that hard to install if you are somewhat handy with tools. Cooling Unit Warehouse is where we usually go.

it's a complete replacement of the unit?Or just the coil, I found the site for coils. Any idea which one.
RV Mechanic: Randall, RVIA Certification replied 2 years ago

You have to look for one for a Norcold N1210 model.
