Norcold Recall

Norcold, Inc. Product Recalls – Call 1-800-767-9101

The Norcold, Inc. refrigerators listed below have been recalled.

It is important to implement this safety enhancement to prevent an unsafe elevation in the temperature of the cooling unit should the unit fail in operation. This enhancement seeks to minimize the risk of injury or death due to fire.

If you suspect you own one of these recalled refrigerators:
  1. Immediately, turn the refrigerator off at its inside controls AND unplug it from its 110 volt source through the service vent door.
  2. Disconnect from shore power.
  3. Call 1-800-767-9101 for assistance to verify if your refrigerator is on recall and/or report and get information as to where you can take the vehicle to get your Norcold refrigerator professionally repaired.
These refrigerators will be repaired at no cost to you.
Norcold, Inc. cannot accept responsibility if you do not immediately arrange to take your refrigerator into a Dealer/Service Center for repair. Moreover, you could be personally liable to third parties for property damage or bodily injuries resulting from your failure to have your refrigerator immediately repaired.

If you have any questions, please contact us at 1-800-767-9101,
Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Eastern Standard Time.

How to Tell if Your Refrigerator Has Been Recalled

Smaller Gas Absorption Models

Due to a potential safety defect, Norcold has recalled the following smaller gas/electric refrigerator models, built from January, 1987 through May 1995, listed below.
If the serial number for your refrigerator model is within the specified range as listed below, the refrigerator’s gas valve needs to be remedied immediately. Refrigerator model and serial numbers can be viewed by looking on the inside right of your refrigerator cabinet.
Continued propane gas mode operation of a refrigerator under this recall could result in a fire causing injury or death.

If you own an affected model:
  1. Immediately switch your refrigerator's controls to AC power (or DC power, if available, while in transit). No LP gas power operation should occur because it could create an unsafe condition.
  2. Contact a servicing Dealer/Service Center to arrange a service date soon. The gas valve in your refrigerator will be replaced at no charge.

Persons owning one of these models should:
  1. Turn the manual shut-off valve to OFF and operate it only on AC or DC power until the defect is repaired. (No gas leak can occur during AC or DC operation.)
  2. Contact a Dealer/Service Center to arrange a service date as soon as possible. A remedy kit, and the labor to install it, is free to the consumer.
  3. Call Norcold at 1-800-767-9101 with any questions; and to obtain the location of the nearest Norcold Service Center.
