I help many customers, sometimes my replies are delayed, I will respond once available. I try to be online at 1-5 pm and 10 pm-5 am every day. Who am I helping today?

Do you get the same results on gas and electricity?

How long has it been on, and is the freezer down to 0-20 degrees?

Norcold, Model #N302.3LWork very well on electric. Freezer worked well on propane for a while, but frig never got cold, then neither were cold. I Suspect something wrong with fuel delivery to unit.
RV Mechanic: Chris (aka-Moose), RV Mechanic replied 1 year ago

Once the fridge stops cooling on gas, does the gas flame no longer come on, or does it burn orange instead of blue?

Re-started frig, came on ok. But within 1 1/2 hours the flame went out.
RV Mechanic: Chris (aka-Moose), RV Mechanic replied 1 year ago

Once the flame goes out, if you turn it off then a minute later back on to gas. Will it re-ignite?

relit ok but emits a strong odor inside the camper
RV Mechanic: Chris (aka-Moose), RV Mechanic replied 1 year ago

If that odor smells acidic and sour then you are leaking refrigerator refrigerant, a new fridge is needed. If the odor is a propane burning smell then your burner is not making a good flame or there is something wrong with the burner tube or flue that needs to be inspected and addressed.

Thank you for seeking us for help, I hope I provided what was needed. Press reply if you need to follow up. If you liked my answer please let me know so I can mark your question complete. Moose
