My vintage 1994 Norcold was working fine on both AC and Gas…

Hi, My vintage 1994...

Hi, My vintage 1994 Norcold was working fine on both AC and Gas but I had to replace the igniter module. It now ignites reliably but does not cool at all on gas, does fine on AC still though. I replaced the thermistor with no change in function. The heater tube is just as warm to touch on gas as it is on AC. Any other ideas would be very welcome

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

This is an RV refridgerator Model 6182

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

This is a refridgerator

Hi! My name is ***** ***** I can assist you with this. I may need some additional information from you first in order to give a complete answer.

Good evening! Sorry for the delay in someone getting to your question here! It has been crazy busy these last few days. I have an RV repair facility and work on these systems for a living. Please give me a few minutes to type up an answer here for you. And don't be alarmed if I don't get right back to you when you respond. We work on more than one question at a time here when it is busy like it is now. I may be on a phone chat with another customer and those last less than 5 minutes. Your patience is appreciated! And several of us live out west where we are dealing with fires all around us! Thanks! Randall

The two most common problems with poor performance on LP mode are a dirty burner and low LP working pressure at the tank regulator. That should be tested and adjusted as needed at least once a year and a regulator can fail at any time. Most shops have a manometer and can test this for you. If you do need a new one then I would go with one by MEC Marshall as those are the best and most reliable. I am adding a link for the Norcold Service Manual which is used for this model. Print it out so you have it. I hope this proves helpful here and points you in the right direction. Randall http://bryantrv.com/docs2/docs/600.pdf

Randall was very helpful and right on his assessment. I had already fixed the problem by the time his help came, but he was accurate about my LP burner being dirty, thus causing my problem.
