As mentioned by Old-Biscuit in the post, the recall is a band-aid
, and it covers an infected wound. Read on to understand the deep origins of this statement.
See this video, we tested the HTS recall, we were shocked at the results -- How Norcold High Temperature 634677 Recall Works (1200 & 2118 Recall):
We spoke to a former Dometic engineer, that works for another company that sells a high quality product on this site, he stated this to me:
"The Dometic engineering department called the Dometic RV Fridge recall a band-aid.
With this said, there was not a real attempt to get at the root cause, just put something over it, a band-aid
Our official policy is to not advise on the recalls. This is due to the fact that the recalls are not reliable. They tend to fail at a very high rate, and we cannot advise based our governments recommendations, namely the NHTSA. One of the most common complaints is this:
I got a new recall, and it does not work. It cost me a lot of time and money, and all I want is a functioning fridge. Wait, that is the quote above!
The Norcold 1200 is not a bad fridge, this is why Norcold still has the N1210 brand. It is the method of controlling the boiler temperature that is bad, that is the boiler temperature is not controlled from the factory.
When there is a solution to a problem, and it is not implemented, then one needs to understand the motivation
