Norcold Model #6162

New RV owner and the Norcold is not working. Getting power to unit and the eyebrow lights up. When I shut of the power the gas kicks in as it should. Either way there is no cooling at all. I've been researching this and haven't found too much on this particular model. I also can't hear any fans running either. Any ideas would be much appreciated. Thanks!

First off.......

Fridge controls in AUTO
Humidity Switch in 'Normal' position
Thermostat set to 'Coldest' setting

120V AC available then 'AC' will be displayed
No 120V AC then 'LP' will be displayed
IF 'LP' and a RED X show......gas failed to ignite

How long did you wait/cool with either Mode before deciding 'not cooling'

Initial cool down on either source will take 8 hrs PLUS
Just the way absorption fridges work.

Now IF fridge has been on for longer period and NOT cooling down then could be:
Bad electric heat element
Dirty propane burner
Dirty Flue/flue baffle
Low propane pressure

Here is installation/service manual

Another manual.....might have better content
