Yes washing and getting water in the refer vent will trigger a failure . This has happened to me twice and the magnet trick is what has worked both times. I had good 12 V power with no blown fuses . Magnet is now stored in the back of the refer ..

Checking for 12V power to the Norcold 1200

On the Norcold 1200, the fuse on the circuit board is located under the black cover shown in the first picture. There are 3 or 4 screws holding the cover on and several wires need to be unhooked to remove the cover. I suggest taking several pictures of the wiring to help put the wires back correctly. My picture of the cover is not the greatest, and it takes a little work to get the cover off. The 12V fuse is located on the lower left of the circuit board. The 12V power wire is the orange wire connected to the red wire in the picture of the cover. If you have 12V on your power supply wire and the light on the 'recall update box' is not lit the problem may be the fuse on circuit board.

Talking Thank you!!!!

WOW!!! What would we ever do without all of you!!!

The magnet trick WORKED!!! I found a good, strong magnet from the front of our refrigerator and moved it around the top right corner of the little black box inside the back panel of the refrigerator. It "clicked" and the red light went off. I went inside the motorhome, and the refrigerator was running!!! ALL BETTER!!!

My husband used to laugh at me when I went to this forum FIRST when we had an issue.....but he's not laughing any more. I called and told him the refrigerator was now running.....and we're going camping for a week tomorrow!!! YIPPPEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! Thank you!!!!!!!!!!

Good grief.......

I wish my wife would even attempt what you did. When anything goes wrong she just dumps it in my lap. She doesn't know anything about 'that stuff'. Primarily because she doesn't want to.

This forum is great. Our frig had quit last week and I just took a magnet out there and it came back to life. Saved me a trip to a shop and the cost of fixing it. Thanks.
