The number one reason RV refrigerators fail is because the cooling unit rusts out and starts leaking ammonia. This is usually accompanied by the freezer not cooling or making a gurgling sound.

If your Norcold is leaking ammonia, the cooling unit has failed and must be replaced. This will usually be accompanied by an odor of ammonia and the refrigerator not working properly or making a gurgling sound when the heat is turned on.

Before you install your new cooling unit it is best to lay the refrigerator down so that the evaporator is on the ground and the holding tank is above it. This will allow the fluids to run down and into the boiler instead of into the weak solution cavity. This will also give you and your helper a chance to get a feel for the positioning of the refrigeration pocket for optimum fit. Norcold replacement cooling unit
