|Norcold Interior Lamp won't come on by Phil|
|I'm trying to get the inside light (lamp) to come on in my Norcold fridge.
I've replaced the lamp bulb, lamp bracket and the thermistor. It still won't come on. I have current at the bracket and if I plug the bulb into the hot side of the bracket and then run a wire from the other side of the bulb to a "ground" the bulb will light.
I checked the voltage at the bracket with the genset running and the fridge running on AC... one side is showing 14+ volts so I assume that's the hot side. The other side I would think would be the ground but it's showing about 5 volts. The wire coming in to that side of the bracket is black with a white stripe. When the genset is off and the fridge is turned off I get 12.5 volts to one side and the black wire with whites stripe shows zero volts.
I'm tempted to just cut that wire and run it to a permanent ground but I hate to jury-rig things. If that wire runs to the control board then I must be getting a current bleed into the ground somewhere.
