Norcold fridge not cooling ,no error codes showing

hello , I have an issue with our Norcold 1210 . It stopped cooling last week .it has had the recall box installed and there are no error codes showing on the display.i did a search for info and I see lots of post about no cooling error codes but I have none showing. the condenser area was very hot and the fans were not running,so I jumped the fan sensor and the fans came on. It started cooling for about 12 hours,freezer was good,lower part cold. I thought all was good...it was hot again this morning. Still no errors showing . When I turn the fridge off and on I get the basic ac,auto etc. so the display is working. Do I need to reset the board?
Thanks
Wayne

What has your outside temperature been. Ammonia refrigerators Become very inefficient as the ambient temperatures rise. For sure get the fan situation resolved ASAP. Other options I have seen is placing fans behind the upper outside cover blowing outward and placing fans in the lower outside cover drawing cool air inside. Most people get to the point of removing the entire unit and replacing it with a residential unit for 1/3 the price of a trouble plagued Norcold.

If you are replacing a 1210 Norcold, the Samsung RF18 frig fits in the opening like it was designed for it. Some minor rearranging and the drawer under the frig must be removed but all in all not hard. I had mine switched in a day.

I'll be back in my office by the end of the week and put together a material list (there isn't much) and a outline of how to do it.

We have had our 2014 Redwood for a year and half,never had an issue. The weather in Tallahassee has been in the 90's .the refrigerator just got hot last week,by hot I mean 90 deg. Inside . All the searches I come up with talk about error codes, I have none. If I turn the fridge off then back on it starts cooling again. I replaced the fan control yesterday ,seemed like it was good. This morning it was at 90 deg inside the fridge. It shut down last night .

Help or suggestions

Have a Norcold dated 08/10/12 which just stopped cooling.

No error codes. I've disconnected the thermistor to enable max cooling.

Unit works on both propane and electric as I have a flame and also electric heaters are working.

Are there any other suggestions on what to check.

Seriously looking at the domestic upgrade but in looking at the reviews on the samsung unit there not looking to good with cool and drain line freezing.

Regards, Gerard

You didn't list your specific Norcold Model number but it is probably a 1210. Look at this manual as it may help. Others may chime in..
