Such a sad and scary topic/post! We too are very lucky our coach didn't burn down when our Norcold 1200LR failed (Ammonia leak). We sure feel better after replacing our cooling unit with a new Amish built and auto fire extinguisher. Here is our video of the change-out and the charring/damage we found behind it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EyCh7aXveow&hd=1
I have recently been told that my refrigerator has a "saturated cabinet" making the refrigerator worthless. Dealer has put in two new cooling units and neither one cooled the refrigerator, so they contacted Norcold about the " saturated cabinet" Any one have any knowledge about this?
Not sure if this is the same but our Norcold cabinet had condensation damage from a poorly fitted/sealed cooling unit? We were able to repair it when we replaced the cooling unit with an Amish build unit. Here is our YouTube video with pics: Our Norcold to Amish Built Cooling Unit Change-out
Hope this helps!
