|Norcold 662 electrical problem||brady fehr||11-13-13|
|About a week ago I noticed my fridge had switched to LP. Of course when the LP ran out the red "X" appeared. I reset the breakers and also tested the output side, all good. The only part that is strange is that when I reset the breaker I hear a distinct "click", similar to the sound a breaker makes when it trips (but the breaker itself is not tripped, there is 120v output). So, it appears the fridge is not getting 120v. Seems to me that there must be some component between the breaker and the fridge that is tripping. Judging from where the sounds is coming from it is located in the control panel, not in the fridge itself. Anyone have any idea what this could be?|

|Making some guesses here:|
You actually unplugged the fridge and pluged something else in? If you have confirmed 120 volt supply this way good.
On the control board there is a fuse and relay for the 120 Volt element. It is common for the breaker to trip when the element fails. Reseting the breaker blows the fuse. Or the control board fails and protects the fuse.
So you need to test the element 40 ohms resistance + or - 10 ohms.
