I had a buddy call me today with a problem he is having so I thought I would throw it up and see what yall think.
He has a Norcold fridge and says his fridge keeps freezing everything inside it. I asked if he had lowered the setting to the warmest one, and he did and said it is still freezing everything inside the frige compartment. From top to bottom everything freezed after a few days.
Any suggestions? He didn't like mine which was just open the door and help cool the trailer!!

Have him check to see if the thermistor sensor is clipped to the fins inside. If it isn't in position the temps can be thrown off. Also, some refers go into a "full on" mode if the control circuit goes bad. It would be good to look at the manual for it and see if there is a troubleshooting section. Manuals are usually available online if he doesn't have one.

He probably has a bad thermistor (the little thing attached to the fins in the refrigerator compartment.) If the thermistor is bad the system is automatically put into a "continuous cool" mode and what your friend reports will occur. The thermistor is cheap <$30 and he can easily replace it.

I'd suggest contacting (either by phone or on-line) Nocold, and ask them too. A friend had a similar problem, and they had him test the Thermister with an Ohm-meter....and he found that his was working, but not 100%, so he had them ship a new one in a couple of days, and all is perfect now.
I think the other advice above is right on too....but the Norcold Techs may be able to help a bit deeper in the Troubleshooting process.
