Problem removing Norcold N841

Norcold N841 recently leaked out coolant in 1999 Itasca Suncruiser 34V. Have replacement refrigerator to install. Also have Norcold service manual and have followed all directions for removing refrigerator. All screws have been removed but refrigerator won't budge.

Has anyone had a similar problem or know to "trick " to getting the old refrigerator out of the enclosure?

Thanks, Dave

Not sure if it will help but here is the installation manual http://www.gasrefrigeration.net/nor_...82,n64,n84.pdf

See page 6 and the art that goes with it on page 16. There seems to be 2 steps with screws into the wall and floor (items 12 and 16).

Dave,

Thanks for the quick reply. Removed bottom trim strip and 2 screws under trim strip. Also removed 2 screws from top flange and 2 more screws located about middle of unit not shown in diagram. Can see no screws in back of unit.

May just have to get a bigger hammer.

Dave

Your fridge may be glued down. Seems that I heard Winnebago glues as well as screws their fridges down. Maybe call Winnebago to verify.

Looking in through the outside vent area you see no screws through the bottom plate of fridge?
They did use sealant back them days ,as said, use a wrecking bar to pry up rear bottom plate.

Brigadoon & 007,

Called Winnebago and found out there are 2 screws in the top of fridge accessed from the roof. There are also plates on both sides with 4 bolts (2 per side) on the back. Removed all fasteners and the dang thing still won't come out!

Think you may be right about glue. Will try BIG pry bar tomorrow.

Thanks, Dave

I have removed the Norcold from my MH. The screws at the top on mine were not a problem to remove. Just slit the wire under the reefer "dome" on the roof so you can lace it back together with some SS wire.
The reefer is "glued" down using something that appeared to be a black silicone based adhesive. I used an old hand saw and forced the blade under the reefer to cut the adhesive. Do that and then try to tilt the reefer. It's not easy! But, it is doable.
