power board location? norcold n821

I have a norcold n821 refrig that is giving me the H error message which tells me to check the power board. I think there are two fuses on the power board I would check first. My question is where is the powerboard located on this refrigerator, I cannot find it anywhere on the internet. Also, if the whole board needs to be replaced, is that a difficult job or can a do it yourselfer like me handle it? Thank you for your help

When I helped a neighbor with his Norcold , the control board was, on the back of the fridge, left side looking through the bottom vent, behind a white plastic cover 4" x 7" . Follow the 110v power cord , that should lead you right to it. Multiple 110 & 12 volt wires to remove before the cover can be removed . Tag all the wires and take a picture before you start pulling wires off. Disconnect 110 power cord , tape up 12v wires.
If memory serves, and some times it does. Fuses can be pulled with needle nose pliers, with the cover in place.

I did mine, no problem. [Not sure about the 821] mine is a Norcold 1200. Marked the wires first, cover then can be removed to check fuses. I did replace the board as it was bad, fridge would not stay lit on propane, ac was fine.
