Norcold Refrig died

Anyone have an idea of what may have failed and an approximate repair cost ?

What model of Norcold do you have? Also, what are your failure symptoms? Is it not cooling at all? Is it only cooling on one side or is just the freezer failing?

N611RT serial 8912551. Was working last Tuesday, came up yesterday and freezer meat was soft and milk was not very cold. I turned it up to 5, and could hear no "noise" on the inside, and only a faint compressor noise in the outside compartment. Then, after 6 hours like that, the freezer was "water all over". Took everything out and it's shut off now. The door "on" indicator and the inside light have always worked.

Anyone commenting on this will need some more detail than you have given. Age, model #, situation, etc before being able to offer any thing sensible as a solution.

Try this: http://bryantrv.com/docs2/docs/ncoldnnewnseries.pdf

It's the Service Manual for that model and the troubleshooting pages should help you.

Similar to this, a few times in previous years, it began to defrost, but always resumed working properly again for long periods. The compartment outside is clean and the roof vent is clean too.

I won't be much help, but look over the manual, I did a quick read, and it looks fairly detailed.

Personally, I would open the access panel, check the fuses on the circuit board. Also take a visual look, at the components in case some cridder got in there. Look at the roof vent to ensure it is clear of any debris.

Looked over the manual too - it's beyond my "expertise".

Tried running it on GAS ONLY (never did before) and the Freezer is working but refrig compartment not very cold at all. Could it be the heating element?
