The refrigerator is a key piece of every RV, and Norcold rv refrigerators are tough, durable and built to last. They offer an array of options, including absorption fridges that run on LP gas and AC power or 12V compressor fridges that can be powered by an inverter. They’re a great choice for vanlifers because they’re relatively efficient and easy to use on the road. And, if something does go wrong, it’s usually fairly straightforward to resolve.
Whether you have an absorption fridge or a compressor model, the way they operate is similar. A process known as evaporative cooling uses ammonia-based refrigerant to cool the fridge by converting it from liquid into gas and then circulating it through metal coils to absorb heat from the fridge. It then turns back into a liquid and the cycle repeats to keep the fridge cold.
To turn on your Norcold fridge, find the “on/off” button, located on the control panel between the fresh food and freezer compartments. Press and release the button to turn it on. To shut off your fridge, just press and hold the button again.
If your Norcold fridge is running continuously, there are a few possible reasons for this problem. It could be that the fridge is set too low, there’s a blockage preventing airflow or the fuses are blown. Try resetting the fridge by following the steps in the previous article and check that the fridge is properly plugged into the power source. norcold parts online
