Norcold Frig on Propane

Our older 4 door Norcold runs great until we were traveling and using it on propane. Then a bump or wind seems to blow it out. Anyone else have this problem? What was or is the fix? Does anyone have a retrofit or figured it out?

there should be a little flame cover that blocks it from the wind.

Can you open the door outside behind the fridge to inspect? You might even find a dirt dobber nest in there or something.

Regretfully we are on the road and forgot a ladder. Will check for both ASAP. I also considered the flapper thing. Thank you very much for your reply. Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

You shouldn't need a ladder �� to access the panel behind the fridge .. It's at eye level. The items to look at are there not on the roof or top panel if it's in a slide out. There are a few YouTube videos on checking the flame and the proper level or any obstructions and adjusting if needed.

Thank you for your reply about checking the flame. It is in our slide out.

We are short but I guess not that short. My partner apparently figured it out and checked it this AM. All is clear and flame looks good. We are able to get it to cool well with the generator on last night. Runs great on AC.

Just a learning curve I guess. Thanks to those who have taken the time for guidance.

There is also a fan switch - where we are traveling is hot and humid so we are leaving the fan on. I believe that is the right thing to do.

Anyone else with ideas or advice - feel free to chime in.

My Norcold 1200 cooled poorly on propane until I replaced the propane regulator (it developed a leak). Now it cools to 0 / 35 degrees on level 5 in 90 degree heat. Regulators are cheap (Amazon) and not hard to replace. Alternatively, have a tech check the pressure.
