I just took delivery of a 2006 Suncruiser 38T with a Norcold model 120X-imxx fridge. A 4 door with ice maker The fridge is in the slide out right behind the driver's seat, hence no roof vent, just 2 side vents. It works great on AC however when I transfer to LG it works for awhile then shuts down due to a thermal cutoff located on the round insulated cylinder that the burner goes into. When it shuts down the unit is totally dead. The display panel is blank. When the reset button is pushed the unit returns to normal. Does anyone else have a similar problem? and if so how did you solve it

Ron, I might suggest that you start by verifying that the lp gas pressure is correct at 11" water colum under working load. If too high this could supply more BTU's than the refrigerator was designed to operate properly. The next would be proper air flow. Are the fans coming on; they probably are if it woks good in electric mode and it is hot outside. The next thing to check would be the burner itself. Be sure no rust flakes have fallen onto the burner distorting the flame; it should go straigh up the chimney flue. Good luck and keep us posted on the diagnosis.

Hi Ron, we had Norcold send us a recall for a retrofit to our older 200LRIM unit installing a thermal cutoff sensor to prevent overheating.

I would think that when it cooled down the sensor would reset the circuit automatically.

If it doesn't, then that could be a real pain.

You might want to give Norcold a call and speak to one of their technicians about the problem, perhaps there's another solution.

Their number is: Phone: 1-800-543-1219

Good Luck, Jim

Ron - Where is the reset button on your fridge? I can't find it on mine. Called Norcold and the tech said there is no reset other than grounding the pin on back of the circuit board....
