I just bought this on the first of the month so it’s been happening ever since I got it at first it worked on LP but didn’t get cold and then it just stopped working altogether

No problem sir I'm not good at typing either
RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 1 year ago

So when you are in Auto the RV is plugged into power the fridge should want to work on electric, if you loose the AC power OR the circuit board under the outside access panel does not sense the AC power the fridge will default to propane, if it fails to light off on propane then you get the no FL code.

First step is to verify the outlet the fridge is plugged into has voltage, this is under the outside access panel. The fridge uses DC power to turn on and work, so this means if the outlet did not have voltage the fridge would turn on and default to propane.

If the outlet has voltage leave the fridge unplugged and locate the circuit board under the outside access panel, the cover comes off the board and will expose some fuses, one is for the DC side which allows the fridge to power on and the other is for the AC side, if the AC fuse was blown then the fridge will default to propane.

IF the outlet has voltage, the fuses are good then the board is suspect, part of the board is a relay that senses the AC power.

IF the fridge is NOT turning on at all meaning NO display and NO interior light please let me know.

Also you could have more issues if the box did not cool on propane.

I can also send you a service manual to trouble shoot the propane side as if you are getting the fault code it should be firing off.

With the input on a CAU the light on the refrigerator comes on but still it goes to no flow or no CO maybe?
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
There is a clicking noise from this black box also there is a green wire I will take a picture and send it to you that is not connected to anything it runs from somewhere inside
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I checked this in-line fuse and it seems to be OK no breaks
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Like I said this is a 1999 model
RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 1 year ago

Maybe you did not understand what I typed.

IF the fridge is in AUTO and is going to NO FLOW you need to check the outlet the fridge is plugged into, and the fuse on the circuit board.

I will repost my response, once you check that out let me know.

The green wire should be ground, it should go to a screw on back of the fridge with other wires wit an eye lit.

The fuse in the holder does NOT matter if the fridge is turning on.

Need to figure out why the fridge is NOT working on electric with the RV plugged in.

Also you need to double check the codes, NO FL and NO CO are totally different.

OK I checked the fuses both of them are fine with a round glass fuse nothing broken and there's a five amp fuse and that's also OK what next? I'm sorry it took so long to get back to you but it was pouring down rain want to wait before I messed with anything electric

Sorry about that sir I can wait till tomorrow I wish your son's team luck
RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 1 year ago

Have you verified the outlet has voltage to it? Again if you are plugged into power and the fridge is in auto it should want to work on electric AC power, if the AC power is not present the fridge will default to propane and then the it will go to the no flow.

If needed plug the fridge into an outside source with an extension cord this will tell you if there is an issue with the incoming AC power from the RV if the fridge works on electric.

IF plugging into another outlet and the fuse on the board is good I would replace the board.

Good morning I found this in a box underneath the camper I think this might be the problem since this is brand newI thought it first the coach said no flow but now reading the directions I realize it said no CO
RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 1 year ago

NO CO means the fridge is locked out. No cooling is being detected.

Normally you can reset the circuit board for this code, the board you sent in the picture is an aftermarket board.

Look at the board that is on the fridge, the standard board will have a single 16 pin connector or a 10 and 6 pin connector, below are the links on how to reset the board.

The dinosaur board in the box I am not sure on the reset as it is aftermarket.

Is this one newer than the one that's in the box? This whole thing is driving me crazy I retired from the military last August under medical Honorable but under medical may the doctors tell me I need to go into a hospice and I can't take my dog well my dogs been with me In Afghanistan saved my life a few times so I decided to buy this motorhome I bought it on June 1 my plan is to travel for my last few months really got to get this running
RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 1 year ago

The one is the box is a Dinosaur electronics board, hard for me to say what you have now, I sent you the instructions for trying to clear the code with the boards that come with the fridge when new, I am not sure the reset on the Dinosaur board.

Make sure the fridge is level and you might want to tap the cooling unit coils on the back of the fridge with a rubber mallet.

The NO code sometimes comes up when a cooling unit is blocked, this is when the ammonia solution inside the cooling unit stops circulating, it causes the fridge to heat up and then the code comes up.

I appreciate your military service, I was in the USN for 6 years.

Also question there looks like there is a water supply that is turned off do I turn that on? Could that be one of the problems that it is off?
RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 1 year ago

We answer per issue. Not related to the code you are getting on the fridge.'

Robert

IF it is under the outside access panel for the fridge it may be a cutoff valve if your fridge has an ice maker.

Robert
