What is the model of the Norcold? Should be a sticker inside the box to the right when you open the door, most start with the letter N and then a number.

Also the light is probably flashing a code, if it is the ON light flashing how many times is it flashing in 3 second intervals, this is key.

This code means no cooling is being detected by the controls and the fridge will lock out. Sometimes you see this issue when a cooling unit fails.

There is a way to reset this but it would require jumping a wire to ground at the circuit board under the outside access panel. I understand that this may not be an option but would be more then happy to send you the info on the reset. I also might suggest seeing if a mobile RV tech is in the area. Many times if you search google for RV mobile repair and the zip you will get a listing of techs in the area.

Again if you would like the reset procedure let me know and I can send you some links on this reset.

Ok send me the reset procedure

So it will depend on the style board. Norcold has two styles.

One board has a single 16 pin connector.

The newer board which I suspect you have will have a 10 and 6 pin connector, the reset is done at the 6 pin, follow the steps.

Below are two links for you. Also if you have the new board slip procedure 1, procedure two would be what you want for this model.
