A Norcold Cooling Unit is a dependable camper refrigerator unit that will keep your refrigerator cold. They are also inexpensive to replace compared to replacing the entire fridge, and they will work well for many years.

Choosing the Right Norcold Cooling Unit

If you are replacing an RV fridge cooling unit, it is important to choose a replacement that will fit your refrigerator model and provide proper service. This will help you avoid costly and time-consuming repairs down the road.

You should look for a replacement that has the following features: * High-efficiency compressors that deliver high temperatures to the cooling coils to reduce power consumption and heat loss. * Heavy-wall seamless tubing that prevents thermal stress and tube fractures, so the cooling unit lasts much longer than original equipment.

This is important because it means the refrigerator will cool properly for a longer time.

Norcold remanufactured cooling units feature heavier wall seamless tubing and a boiler design that will not rupture or leak, so the cooling unit will work for a long time.

Thermo-Mastic and Sealing Tape are also included with the Norcold remanufactured units. Thermo-Mastic is a plastic compound that bonds to metal to form an airtight, waterproof seal around the outside of the evaporator foam pack and tubes. The sealing tape is a foil-like material that will adhere to the evaporator foam pack and prevent air from leaking in and out of the cooling unit.

When installing the Norcold remanufactured refrigeration unit into your refrigerator, it is important to make sure that the evaporator foam pack fits into the evaporator pocket. If the foam pack is not seated all the way into the pocket, trim it so that it will fit perfectly.

With the evaporator foam pack inserted into the refrigerator, start inserting the rear mounting screws that hold the cooling unit to the freezer and refrigerated sections of the refrigerator. Be careful to set the screws in evenly and carefully, avoiding the area where the LP gas igniter is located.

Once all the screws are inserted, lay the refrigerator back down and finish taping the evaporator joint and reinstalling all of the accessories onto the new unit. When all of the parts are in place, you can reinstall the refrigerator and run it.

If the unit isn’t able to turn on or stay cool, it may be a sign that the boiler has become overheated and is allowing water in the cooling solution to boil. If this happens, you should have the ARP Control installed to prevent further damage.

After installing the ARP Control, run the new Norcold remanufactured refrigerator for about a week to allow the fluids to mix in properly and to avoid an unneeded ARP Control switch off. After the break-in period, you should be able to turn on your Norcold remanufactured rv refrigerator and get it back to work.
