When I was in Florida last winter a sinkhole opened up at 2am under a guys bedroom. It happened so quickly he wasn't able to get out. After 3 days of trying to find him they had to give up, it was just too risky for rescuers. That was about 5 miles from where I was parked.

It made me want to tie a rope around my waist when I went to bed at night, but I couldn't think of where to tie the loose end. I was afraid a sinkhole would open up under what I was tied to and I'd get yanked out of bed and down a hole that I would have otherwise escaped. I decided that I would have to accept that if it wasn't my time to go, I'd be OK.

Hey Jeff, have you tried just shutting it off completely for a few hours? Maybe Norcold panels will re-boot like a computer?

Hey Barb,

I remember watching the news on that, it would be a terrible thing to have happen to anyone.

Cheers !!!

No I haven't tried that. Nothing in the trouble shooting guide has anything about that.

It can't hurt anything to try, and who knows it might work. How long has it been running non-stop?

Jeff - And while power is off you could remove the old board and put it back in.

I don't have your patience for not knowing what it is. If my Amish goes on me - it will be out the window and in with a Residential. But I'm hoping that doesn't happen. I really like having the gas option.

Well, if the temperature sensor fails it has a backup operating system that allows the refrigerator to continue to cool.

If it is the sensor, the ref. automatically changes to the backup.
When you push the SET TEMP button, the temperature setting should flash for ten seconds and the the mode of operation appears.

Use the temp settings to increase or decrease the temperature.

If this fails - buy a new MH - it's only money.

Anything else you require to know just ask Steve. He's the other know-it......never mind.

Hey Wayne,

From what I understand, the backup system is activated by unplugging the thermister. My thermister is working properly, so by unplugging it I don't see how it would help
