Effects of High Altitude on Propane Gas Operation
When you operate the refrigerator on propane gas at altitudes higher than 5500 feet above sea level:
- You may experience reduced cooling performance of the refrigerator.
- You may experience burner outages.
To avoid these possible problems, Norcold recommends that you operate the refrigerator on AC when at altitudes higher than 5500 feet
above sea level.
Effects of Freezing Temperatures on Refrigerator Operation
A gas absorption refrigerator is not designed to operate in freezing temperatures. If the refrigerator is not equipped for low temperature
operation, and if the cooling system of the refrigerator is exposed to temperatures of 32° F. or lower for an extended period of time,
the refrigerator operation may be disrupted. The refrigerator operation will resume when the cooling system of the refrigerator warms
sufficiently.
If the refrigerator is equipped for low temperature operation, the refrigerator will operate in temperatures down to 0° F.
Disrupted operation of the refrigerator, due to extended exposure to temperatures of 32° F. or lower, and any costs incurred to warm the
cooling system of the refrigerator are not covered by the Norcold limited warranty. Please contact your local RV dealer for information
about how to resume refrigerator operation or about how to equip your refrigerator for operation in freezing temperatures.
Do not change the installation or the venting of your refrigerator. Refrigerator failures, which are the result of changes to either the
refrigerator installation or to the venting, are not covered by the Norcold limited warranty.
Refrigerator Care Checklist
Your refrigerator will give you years of trouble free service if you do these simple checks every three to six months:
- Make sure the air flow in the lower intake vent, through the refrigerator coils and condenser, and out the upper exhaust vent is not
blocked or decreased.
- Make sure the area behind the refrigerator is clear. Do not use the area behind the refrigerator for storage of anything, especially
gasoline and other flammable vapors and liquids.
Defrosting
The cooling fins of the refrigerator operate at below freezing temperature and will naturally form frost from humidity, which is always
present in the air. The humidity inside the refrigerator increases:
- with higher outside temperature and humidity.
- with the storage of non-sealed fresh foods or warm foods.
- with the amount of time that the door(s) are open.
- with any air leakage into the refrigerator.
Although the refrigerator is not frost -free, it is made to limit frost on the cooling fins. At regular intervals, the temperature control system
automatically melts most of the frost from the cooling fins. The water from the cooling fins drains into a collection cup that is attached to
the back of the refrigerator. The heat of the cooling system evaporates the water from the collection cup.
Installation and Owner’s Manual 3
It is normal for frost to collect inside the freezer. Excess frost decreases the cooling performance of the refrigerator. Defrost the
refrigerator and freezer as necessary:
- Remove all food from the refrigerator.
- Turn the refrigerator OFF.
NOTICE
Defrosting the refrigerator makes excess water inside the refrigerator.
- Remove the drain hose from the drip cup at the rear of the refrigerator.
- Put the drain hose into a half-gallon or larger container to capture water.
- Put dry towels (etc.) inside the refrigerator and freezer to absorb melted frost.
! CAUTION
High temperatures can cause the inside surfaces of the refrigerator to warp or melt. Do not use pans of
HOT water, a hair dryer, or any other high temperature devices to defrost the refrigerator. Do not use any
hard or sharp objects to remove frost. Damage to the interior of the refrigerator can occur.
- To increase the speed of defrosting, put pans of WARM water in the refrigerator and freezer.
- Remove the wet towels (etc.) and dry the interior.
- Remove the drain hose from the large container and put the drain hose back into the drip cup.
- Remove the large container from the enclosure.
- Start up the refrigerator.
- Allow the refrigerator to cool down.
- Return all food to the refrigerator.

Installation and Owner’s Manual 11
Installation Manual
Safety Instructions
! WARNING
- This refrigerator is not approved for use as a free standing refrigerator. It is equipped for the use of propane gas only
and can not be changed to use any other fuels (natural gas, butane, etc.).
- Incorrect installation, adjustment, alteration, or maintenance of this refrigerator can cause personal injury, property
damage, or both.
- Obey the instructions in this manual to install intake and exhaust vents.
- Do not install the refrigerator directly on carpet. Put the refrigerator on a metal or wood panel that extends the full
width and depth of the refrigerator.
Certification and Code Requirements
The refrigerator installation must conform to the following, as applicable:
In the United States and Canada:
- Local codes, or in the absence of local codes, the National Fuel Gas Code, ANSI Z223.1/NFPA 54, the Natural Gas and Propane
installation Code, CSA B149.1, ANSI A119.2 Recreational Vehicles Code, and CSA Z240 RV Series, Recreational Vehicles.
- A manufactured home (mobile home) installation must conform with the Manufactured Home Construction and Safety Standard,
Title 24 CFR, Part 3280 [formerly the Federal Standard for Mobile Home Construction and Safety, Title 24 (part 280), and the
current CSA Z240.4, Gas-equipped Recreational Vehicles and Mobile Housing.
- If an external power source is utilized, the appliance, when installed, must be electrically grounded in accordance with local codes
or, in the absence of local codes, the National Electrical code, and ANSI/NFPA 70, or the Canadian Electrical Code, CSA C22.2.
Parts 1 and 2.
All propane gas supply piping and fittings must obey local, state, and national codes about type and size. These components must also
obey the current NFPA 1192 section 2-4, and in Canada with the current CAN 1-6.10 Standard.
Ventilation Requirements
! WARNING
The completed installation must:
- Make sure there is sufficient intake of fresh air for combustion.
- Make sure the living space is completely isolated from the combustion system of the refrigerator.
- Make sure there is complete and unrestricted ventilation of the flue exhaust which, in gas mode, can produce carbon
monoxide. The breathing of carbon monoxide fumes can cause dizziness, nausea, or in extreme cases, death.
The bottom of the opening for the lower intake vent, which is also the service access door, must be even with or immediately below the
floor level. This allows any leaking propane gas to escape to the outside and not to collect at floor level.
CSA International certification allows the refrigerator to have zero (0) inch minimum clearance at the sides, rear, top, and bottom. While
there are no maximum clearances specified for certification, the following maximum clearances are necessary for correct refrigerator
performance:
Bottom Each Side
Top
Rear
0 inch min.
0 inch min
0 inch min.
0 inch min.
0 inch max.
1/2 inch max.
1/4 inch max.
1 inch max.
These clearances plus the lower and upper vents cause the natural air draft that is necessary for good refrigeration. Cooler air comes
in through the lower vent, goes up around the refrigerator coils where it removes the excess heat from the refrigerator components, and
goes out through the upper vent. If this air flow is blocked or decreased, the refrigerator will not cool correctly.
