Norcold 611 On Light “off”

Hello All

So just got back from a great trip to Yellowstone, refrigerator died half way through the trip. It is a Norcold 611 Dual.

The fault codes for on light off is
Check the switch is On...I’ve done this
Check battery charging equipment, yes fully functional..new batteries and replaced charging solenoid recently.....getting overcharge on house batteries as I should.
Check ac/dc converter is operational...it is, both 30amp fuses are good and I here it kick on every so often.

I’ve also checked the 7amp fuse in the battery compartment and it is solid as well. Also in the coach the circuit breakers are not tripped, I did trip and return every breaker just in case.

The next step is to contact Norcold according to the manual. Is there any additional troubleshooting that I can do?

Did you take the cover off outside and check that all the wires are tight in there? Did you measure the voltage at the terminals on the refer control board out there? You have to take off the cover that's over the terminal strip on the board. That's where I start.

Yes, I just opened up the access panel from outside and found I have access to the control boards. And a plug and receptacle. I’ll check on the connections and terminal strip tomorrow.

Thanks

Take off the outside cover on the fridge. You will see a black box with wires going into it. Carefully unscrew the box. You will find a 5 amp fuse inside and a regular cylindrical fuse. Check the 5 amp fuse. That’s the 12 volt fuse. The other fuse is for the 110 volts.

Replaced the 5v fuse, it’s working now.

Thanks
