Norcold Thermistor Repair Kit

It makes no sense to me why they would sell a trailer with a fridge that has no ability to adjust the coldness.
My Norcold does not have an adjustable thermistor. Read the instruction manual. It might have the adjustment behind the center panel between the doors.

The original Dometic in our '02 Georgetown had no temperature adjustability. Fortunately it ran at just about what we wanted. It died last season and was replaced. The new one has adjustable temperature.

Keep us posted. Always good to know how someone solves a problem.
It seems to be about 30 degrees with food in it. Nothing is freezing, so we've been fine with it on this trip. We did move it lower on the fin, but I'm not sure that did anything.

If the freezer is 30 deg. then that is not cold enough. 30 in the fridge seems to be a little cold. The Norcold I had came with an adjustment on the front and would cool down to about 35. The Dometic cools to 40 on hot days and as low as 38 on cooler days. It has the adjustable thermistor. If your fridge is 30 and nothing freezes, I suspect a bad thermometer, Purchase another one and try it.
