Norcold DE 728 (dual voltage) refrigerator Gary Hutchinson 3-13-03  
I need a Type A-1 chatter protector for this refrigerater's inverter power supply. RV Gas Refrigeration, Elkhart,IN says this is no longer available. They sent a Type B for a later model but it is entirely different. Can I adapt the Type B somehow or trade the entire inverter out for a later model? Need 60 watts @ 23 volts AC according to the manual. Does anyone have a working knowledge of these units? Many thanks for any help.
Sawafuji transformer 15035, 117v / 20v al 5-6-10  
I have a norcold de400c refrig...i need a sawafuji transformer 15035. it is 117v prim. and 20v sec....where can i find one....the sec. is runnig high...25v, and when the dc is on is have 21v ac out of the inverter but 29 comes out of transformer...any ideas thanks

I have an older Norcold Model DE 251 E 120/12volt
I need a black door & trim kit.
Can you help???
Re: Norcold DE 728 (dual voltage) refrigerator Joe 3-14-03  
I would guess that there is a way to adapt it. Your best bet is to contact the place you bought the part from to see if it is compatible and how to adapt it. I have worked on them in the past, but never attempted what you are trying without some sort of diagram.
Chatter Protectors Todd 10-8-08  
The Type "B" chatter protector, the orange rubber one is basically used to operate a 110V DC relay off of 110VAC. It basically consists of a crude rectifier and something that appears to be protection from voltage spikes.
On later models, the chatter protector was removed & AC relays were used. I have converted many DE728, DE828 & DE704 units to an AC relay & eliminated the chatter protector completely. I have never had an issue. I do have a good tested "B" in stock. I do not know what exactly the "A-1" chatter protector does, as units using it already have an AC relay. The "A-1" is an external metal box that plugs inline with your AC cord. The "A-1" design is older than the "B" design. I would assume that it is for noise supression or voltage spike protection, as removing it completely does not seem to effect fridge operation. In both systems, the chatter protector is only connected via the relay directly to the transformer & does not connect directly to the inverter/oscillator at all. The switching relay keeps them isolated. We have a Norcold boneyard.

I need a compressor for my dual voltage DE-828 refrigerator,can anyone help me7n6v8
Re: Norcold DE 728 (dual voltage) refrigerator Don Kaelber 5-17-03  
Gary,
I need a Type B chatter protector for my Norcold. From your note, it looks like you may have an extra. I'd be happy to take it off your hands if it's the right one. Mine is encased in red rubber 2.125" L x 1.25" W x.75" H and has five conductors. Please let me know if you still have it or whether it may be available from RV Gas Refridgeration. Thx
Re: Norcold DE 728 (dual voltage) refrigerator Gary H. 3-15-03  
Thanks Joe. Yes, a diagram would be a big help but I haven't found anything yet. Norcold seems more interested in a new sale than a fix. However, the cooling unit appears to be operational just isn't getting continuous power. Similar problem occured about 10 years ago and a new chatter protector fixed it. Now I am told that this part is no longer available. Anyone know of source for Norcold technical information, diagrams, and etc. There must be a Norcold grave yard somewhere. All leads appreciated.
Re: Norcold DE 728 (dual voltage) refrigerator Steve 5-19-03  
Gary, I just had to replace my DE728 with a new DE461. The compressor failed but the P/S unit is still functioning. I salvaged the P/S so perhaps I can help, either by parts or complete P/S replacement. I believe my DE728 was a 1987 year model.
My fridge died! mike sim 5-30-03  
Hi. My fridge died. Anyone know the cheapest place to buy a new one? The old one was 39 inches high, 23 wide, 24 deep. Thanks.
Re: Norcold DE 728 (dual voltage) refrigerator Irvin Bueckert 4-15-03  
Gary, did you try Dinosaur Electronics? I got a "pin-out" diagram from them. I asked Norcold for a board schematic of my DE251E and told me they'd send the same diagram as Dinosaur sent me is all they had. Also PPL Motorhomes I believe they're called has parts. My board is at a local tech- he's going to jump some printed circuits that cracked for $5. Boatered.com has some discussion on these. I hope these leads might help. Irvin

Re: Norcold DE 728 (dual voltage) refrigerator Kurt 7-18-03  
I also need an inverter for a DE 728 (out of a GMC Motorhome). If one is available, I'd like to know. I was told recently that Norcold makes a replacement DC power unit, which replaces both the inverter and transformer, but the cost is $650.

Re: Norcold DE 728 (dual voltage) refrigerator Wally Leppanen 5-3-04  
Message I sent to Norcold: I have a marine refrigerator, Norcold DE 828 and need the power supply (sub) (160106700) Class II transformer (#15035-A) part # 61555122. Actually I only need the Class II transformer (output 40VA, primary 17V, secondary 20V #15035-A) inside this power supply. It burnt up when someone pluggen in 220V to boat. Thanks, Wally

John- maybe I burnt up something else???

Re: Norcold DE 728 (dual voltage) refrigerator Carl Peters 7-25-05  
John,
In your message you stated you have a DE828. I do not want the entire refrig however, I need the double door lock. It is a simple little T shaped piece of plastic that screws on to the refrig. It keeps the doors from swinging open when underway. I also need the two metal racks as my racks are rusted and chrome is peeling. Can you help? Are you interested?

My Norcold DE 728 will now only run on batteries, not 110 volts. Where can I get a power supply? Martin
Re: Norcold DE 251E(dual voltage) refrigerator Richard Di Virgilio, Sr. 8-25-06  
Refrigerator will run at dock side on 120 volts AC, but will not run on 12 volt DC when away from the dock.
Re: Norcold DE 251E(dual voltage) refrigerator Rick 6-3-09  
I'm looking for a schematic to the DC power supply (inverter) for the Norcold DE251E.

I priced the cheapest replacement at $428.50 + ship.

I am a technician and I will repair this one (and others) if I can get the schematic
Thanks

Re: Norcold DE 251E(dual voltage) refrigerator Nick 7-29-09  
Hi Rick,

Any luck on finding the schematic for this fridge, and did you resolve your issue?

Just curious since my unit needs a thermostat assembly. The individual that owned the boat prior to me, bypassed something and put a simple toggle switch in plave for the fridge to run on the AC side. However, it simply does not turn off!!!

Appreciate any help. Thank You
Re: Norcold DE 251E(dual voltage) refrigerator Joe Werkmeister 8-10-16  
I am attempting to install a new thermostat to run my Norcold DE251E AC/DC fridge. The only way I have been able to get it to work with the new thermostat is to hook the red and yellow wires back up to the old thermostat circuit board. If I simply connect the red and yellow to each other I get some activity but the compressor won't come on. In essence I'm looking to find out exactly what the yellow and red wires are for. I have read that others have been successful with this thermostat by only hooking brown and black to the new stat, drawing DC power directly from the battery to power the stat and capping off the red and yellow.
Re: Norcold DE 251E(dual voltage) refrigerator Jim 11-16-16  
Joe,

Did you ever figure this out? I need a new thermostat also but don't know where to find one, Where did you get yours and did you resolve the wiring issue?
