RE: Dometic refrigerator frost and ice

I have a Norcold 1200 4 dr and I just shut it off, put the food in the big cooler and it defrost and water runs out the tray to the outside. Only takes a couple of hours. I do have to soak water up off the freezer bottoms though. Good time to clean it. We added one of the small fans on the rt side fin area and it has helped a lot. That was the area where the ice started all the time. Guess you have an older 1200 model....no 'defrost' cycle? S/N 83170 and lower doesn't have that S/N 83171 and higher has a 'frost' management power board. Shuts down cooling cycle every 40-48 hrs When Food Compartment fin temp reaches roughly 32*F (41-42*F Air temp) the frost management restarts cooling cycle Freeze temp plate will reach rough;y 22*F...so food stays frozen/no defrosting in freezer

RE: Trouble shooting rear furnace

Fan runs but Sail Switch MUST close before anything else can occur. DC has to go thru sail switch/limit switch and back to circuit board before circuit board can send DC to as valve/spark electrode Sail switch......

RE: Dometic refrigerator frost and ice

Do the dollar bill test (bill between seals/frame door closed and pull it out---should be tight/have resistance Do it in Several places Clean seals/frame so you get good clean contact between the two IF seals are not making good contact you can 'reset' them: Place cottonball under seal in each corner Then WARM entire seal using hair-driers (do not overheat but need to get the whole seal warm) Then close door and let the warm seals cool///resetting them If seals are good...dollar bill test then it could just be the warm humid air replacing the cool air when you open fridge doors---especially if you lookie-lou Model of fridge??????????????

RE: What is the best way to deal with snail mail?

Convert on-going bills to Banking On-Line Go to paperless statements and E-Bills Set up the Domicile/Mail Forwarding ....check out Escapees (Originally in TX then they opened services in SD & FL) Select TYPE of service you want When we set up our 'address' when we hit the road back in 2007 we eliminated virtually ALL snail mail ---Except friends/family that sent letters/cards etc and one financial institute that would send quarterly info

RE: NORCOLD N7V - Red Light When On Gas

Norcold N7V Service Manual Pg 15 *If the power ON/indicator light is solid RED, there is a problem and the refrigerator is not cooling. Refer to "Fault Codes N7V and N8V Models" section. Pg 17. Fault Codes Should none of the heat source inputs be available, the poser ON/indicating light will be solid RED. Solid RED see Fault Code Pg 18. Possible Cause: 120VAC not available. Refrigerator defaulted to propane gas operation, but did not establish a flame (Gas Lockout) So are you SURE the Flame is lighting off and STAYING Lit?? *No pilot flame....main flame is ignited by spark electrode Flow Chart goes thru ALL the steps to check (AC & GAS) if solid RED Fault Light IF you do in fact have solid RED AND the Main Flame IS ON/Stays ON then try GAS MANUAL MODE Pg 15 *2nd Priority Mode IF Flame is ON/Stays ON with solid RED Fault Light on then unplug Communication wire between Upper and Lower Boards which is the Blu/BL at Pin 14 (16 pin connector n Lower Board) Unplug/replug that 16 pin connector Wiring Diagram on Pg.55 http://bryantrv.com/docs2/docs/ncold_polar_n_series.pdf Gas Flame ON & Red Light ON........communication issue between upper/lower boards Red Light ON and GAS FAILS....New Gas Valve Train (the WHOLE assembly...no individual parts) Also check the Diagnostic Mode Screen 4 (Stored Faults)----- Pg 51 And Screen 8 (Power Board Outputs) when ON Gas ---- Pg 52

RE: Social distancing

If we had a "like"button, I would click on it. Unfortunately; the Aunt Ednas in our camp ground can't read. No one here is doing social distancing. It is a very sad situation. My wife, (83) and myself (84) used to love to take a daily walk, but we now are pretty much trailer bound ! Guy Carry a switch and wave it around as you mutter. Folks will keep their distance

RE: Plumbing pressure relief

May want to check the water heater thermostat. If the low temperature thermostat (or both low and high) is stuck the water may be heating higher than it should causing excessive pressure. If 'normal' temp t-stat fails then High Temp t-stat trips shutting down DC Both failing......highly doubtful But toilet valve is STILL leaking thru overfilling toilet

RE: Anyone Installed a Bigger TV?

WHat size is OEM TV? What size are you wanting to replace it with? Many TVs use same mounting And many of the new TVs are very light weight. We had a 25" analog HEAVY TV in a cabinet. Took it out...made a cabinet door (huge storage area) I installed a 32" Vizio on the face of cabinet door That was in 2008 and still works fine.....no mounting issues etc Check out the weight on the TV you want to use....not real heavy so doubt if you would have to do anything but swap TVs Sound bars are not heavy items either....if mounting holes don't line uup with any wall 'studs' just use 'toggle bolts'

RE: Water Heater Problems

So you have a Suburban Brand??? The Dip tubes are plastic and if broken off you can see it laying inside via drain hole To replace you disconnect the fittings/lines on backside of WH Tank ...they slip in from the outside 171054 ----- Cold Diffuser Part # (points DOWN) 171509 ----- Hot Diffuser Part # (points UP)

RE: Water Heater Problems

luke warm water........ *When gas heats how long does it take.....time between gas on/gas off? *What is temp AT the water heater vs at a faucet? *T-stat should open at 130*F/140*F (Brand Dependent Suburban/Atwood) *Did you change Bypass setting...cracked open? *Showers....if hot/cold knobs left open/lever-button on handle closed the faucet will mix hot/cold *Dip tubes inside the WH Tank......if fallen/broken off will cause dilution of hot out due to loss of 'thermal zone' within the tank (Suburban can be replaced/Atwood NO)

Reminiscing

I was just sitting here Reminiscing about my life so far....wow what a ride! Strange how majority of life changing events were totally unplanned and yet all has been well. Experiences I never would have thought I would have, life episodes I never could have imagined, close calls that I came thru.

RE: Plumbing pressure relief

T&P on RV water heater will weep at 125 psi Not many RV MFGs install a check valve on INLET And not many have issues with T&P weeping but it does occur Some can experience weeping EVEN with an air pocket....that is where an accumulator tank can help ** most install accumulator tanks to help with pump cycling during low demand & being able to turn pump off at night and still be able to flush the toilet But they will also help control system pressures My WH Tank does NOT have ANY check valves..has 3 shutoff valves And even w/o check valves I have never had T&P weep except when air pocket was lost.

RE: troubleshooting a propane range oven pilot

The screw your turning converts the pilot setting from Nat gas to LP. Leave it on LP. Disassemble the pilot assembly and clean the orifice and the entire pilot assembly. The screw on the pilot line on the back side of the valve is the adjustment for the high pilot adjustment. Totally agree^^^^^^^^^^ One other point That 'spreader plate assembly' for pilot flame...it appears to be pointing pilot flame onto 'barrel' of thermocouple not the tip and in that position is short of the pilot flame ignition slot for main burner flame Has it been moved...can it be moved???
