Bypass Norcold recall box?
« on: June 14, 2012, 08:37:33 PM »
My house batteries died today.  At the same time our 4 door Norcold refrigerator stopped working.  There is a solid red light on the Norcold recall box behind the refrigerator.  12 volts is reaching this box, and no current is leaving. 

I understand that the box must be replaced.   Hopefully I will figure out how to do so tomorrow.  Since this may take a while I would like to bypass this box until the replacement arrives.  (Our freezer is full of goodies).  I would appreciate it if somebody would tell me how to do this.

Thanks

Take the DC wire coming into "the box" and put it directly to your control board.  If I remember they are labeled.

Thanks that worked.  I replaced the blue cable going from the box to the control board by the yellow cable providing 12 volts to the box..  I now have a mobile rv repair guy cheking to see if i have a more serious problem.

Good news.  The problem was in the recall box.  The tech had a replacement box.  The food in our freezer is saved!
