I was looking up info for my refrigerator and came across a recall notice for units manufactured between 1997 and 2002. You can check if yours is affected by going to the following website.

I just witnessed the remains of an American Eagle motorhome fire that resulted from a Norcold refrigerator catching on fire at 2:30AM while everyone slept in their adjoining house. Fortunately, no one was hurt, but the motorhome is totaled, the garage was severely damage, and smoke damage to the residence is severe. It was parked in their motorhome garage that is attached to their house, so the danger to their lives was very real.

As noted in the initial posting above, certain model Dometic refrigerators also have caught on fire, and there is a RECALL for those models.

The NHTSA Recall web site states for the recalled Dometic models:
"THE RELEASE OF COOLANT UNDER CERTAIN CONDITIONS COULD IGNITE AND RESULT IN A FIRE."

The NHTSA Recall web site states for the recalled Norcold models:
"EXTENDED OPERATION OF A LEAKING COOLING UNIT IN THE AC ELECTRIC MODE CAN RESULT IN A FIRE."

As a result of what I witnessed, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND that everyone check their refrigerator model and serial number against the recall list.

Dometic Recall link:
Official Dometic Recall - DometicUSA
The Dometic models are:
NDR1062
RM2652
RM2662
RM2663
RM2852
RM2862
RM3662
RM3663
RM3862
RM3863

Norcold Recall link:
Recall Info

The list for Norcold is so extensive, I can't list it here. See the Norcold link above.

The owner of the American Eagle Coach that caught fire gave me permission to post a photo of the aftermath of the fire. Perhaps, the photo will create some urgency for people to check the Dometic and Norcold refrigerator RECALLs:

My Dometic is a side by side, the picture on their site for recall, the link that Dale777 gave above shows a top-bottom. Are any side by side being recalled. I'll see if I can find the numbers tomorrow.
