Thank you for your response. Since you have been in the business as long as I have been in flooring, enlighten us why the recalls and published recalls and the magnet trick to bypass the recalls was done.
I have owner 15+ TVs, so, I too, know a “little’.

I just have one question here and as to why you refer to the ...magnet trick to bypass the recalls... as a bypass when it's only to reset the thing, so it will do it's job?

If the recall box is doing it’s job, how come you have to reset it with a magnet

Like all things man made, they have their quirks and especially for a fix that was made as cheap as possible for satisfying the government.
A little more money and it would reset on it's own with unwarranted nuisance tripping or at least for just having to turn the power off and back on. I think that's what I had to do with with my ARP until I moved the sensor up a bit. One must remember that the ARP is much more temp. sensitive. Then again, like Doug said, he could have been way off level and for causing the fridge to overheats. I believe that's what happens anyway.
In the case of the OP, it's pretty obvious that his fridge never even got to 350F and proven by the fact that he has both units hooked up in his fridge.
As for me, I'm just glad I have a simple low energy compressor unit now with most of the garbage gone. Thing is with a Norcold, most were inefficient and didn't earn the nickname NEVERCOLD for nothing.

Thanks for your explanation. We love our residential refrigerator and with the large volume, would never consider an absorption unit.
