    Hello...My cabin refrigerator is not cooling. Power seems to get to the unit but no luck. This is a 2006 sundancer 320. Does anyone know what the likely problems are and how I go about diagnosing? Many Thanks

    When I was looking at my boat the surveyor felt the freezer plate after 15min power-up, not cooling, light on, batt or shore power. He said it was most likley done, sees alot of them(norcold). Took it to my local marinia and they said the same thing. So....$700.00 for the fridge...$150.00 install.

    Check the 12 VDC fan on the back of the frig. I defrosted the refrigerator several times, to no avail. When I pulled it out to inspect the compressor, etc., I noticed the fan was not spinning. I gave a flick and it began to spin. Overnight the temperature dropped from 60 degrees to 48. I ordered a $15 fan and now it stays around 38.

    I got lucky this time. Hopefully you will too.
