NorCold Fridge Problems

Our Norcold fridge quick working while going down the road. It was working this morning when we left and when we pulled into Little Rock I noticed there was no display. Checked the breaker and all good, checked fuses on circuit board all good, have 12V DC power going to circuit board, have 120V on other side of circuit board. Circuit board has a couple relays that will click, wait 5-10 seconds then click again. This is all thatís happening. Refrigerator has been working the last 4 weeks fine while plugged into the driveway and was working fine on gas during first leg of trip. Went across some crappy roads on way here so donít know if anything got jarred. Have checked all connections, voltages. Think Iím going to order a new circuit board unless anyone has other options.
Thanks

No Upper Display but have 12VDC to circuit board and DC Fuse checks good (tested not just looked at)??

Circuit board feeds DC to upper display via the harness...multi-pin connector
Loose Connector.....either at circuit board or even upper display board
OR circuit board has failed

Model of Fridge???????
Norcold has MANY different models

Does yours have the overheat safety switch if so you need a magnet to reset it by holding the magnet next to it

If tripped then there wouldn't be DC on circuit board
OP has DC on Circuit Board ...none on upper display panel



Recall Box shuts down ALL DC to fridge so fridge stops heating cycle
**if the High-High Temp sensor trips (700*F) then one should inspect/make sure fridge hasn't got a leak before trying to reset the Recall Box reed switch

Ordered a new circuit board. Having delivered to campground in Nashville that we will be staying at for a couple days. Stuck a couple bags of ice in fridge and ice box for now until I can replace the board.
Appreciate the feedback from everyone.

Those Norcolds are junk, and a fire just waiting to happen. Do a residential swap and don't look back.
