Removing air from the propane gas supply lines: For safety reasons, the burner is made to ignite on propane gas within a specified amount of time. When starting the refrigerator for the first time, after storage, or after replacing propane gas tank, the propane gas supply lines can have air in them. Due to the air in the gas supply lines, the burner may not ignite on propane gas within the specified amount of time. To remove the air from the propane gas supply lines: - Make sure that valve of the propane gas tanks(s) is open. - Push the ON / OFF button to turn the refrigerator on. - Push and hold the MODE button until the letters “LP” show in the center display. - This means that the refrigerator is operating on propane gas. - If the air in the propane gas supply lines prevents the burner from ignition on propane gas, the fault codes “no” and then “FL” will appear in the center display and you will hear an alarm sound. - Push and hold the ON / OFF button for two seconds and then release to silence the alarm and turn the refrigerator back on. - The refrigerator will start a 30 second trial for ignition. - During the 30 second trial for ignition, the refrigera tor controls open the gas safety valve and the igniter makes sparks.

Owner’s Manual 7

- When no fault code shows and only the power indicator remains, this means that the refrigerator is operating on propane gas in the manual mode. - At this time, all of the air is removed from the propane gas supply lines and you may select AUTO mode of operation if you wish. - Depending on how much air may be in the propane gas supply lines, you may need to repeat the 30 second trial for ignition two or three times. - If the burner does not ignite on propane gas after two or three attempts, stop and consult your local dealer or an authorized Norcold Service Center. Set the controls to automatic mode operation: - Push the ON / OFF button to turn the refrigerator on. - Push and hold the MODE button until the letters “AU” show in the center display and then release. - If 120 volts AC is available to the refrigerator: - The letters “AU” and then “AC” show in the center display. - After ten seconds, the “AU” and then “AC” go off and only a green power ON light remains. - This means that the refrigerator is operating on AC electric. - If 120 volts AC is not available to the refrigerator: - The letters “AU” and then “AC” show in the center display. - After five seconds, the “AU” and then “LP” show in the center display. - After ten seconds, the “AU” and the “LP” go off and only a green power ON light remains. - This means that the refrigerator is operating on propane gas. - If neither 120 volts AC nor propane gas is available to the refrigerator: - The fault codes “no” “AC” and then “no” “FL” show in the center display and an audible alarm sounds. If an energy source is available to the refrigerator, but is not operating correctly: - A fault code shows in the center display. - The refrigerator controls try to change to a less efficient energy source. - If a less efficient energy source is not available: - An audible alarm starts. - A fault code shows in the center display. - Refer to the “Fault Codes” section of this manual. Set the controls to manual mode operation: - Push the ON / OFF button to turn the refrigerator on. - Push and hold the MODE button until the letters “ AC” show in the center display and then release. - After ten seconds, the “AC” goes off and only a green power ON light remains. - Push and hold the MODE button until the letters “LP” show in the center display and then release. - After ten seconds, the “LP” goes off and only a green power ON light remains. If the energy source is interrupted: - A fault code shows in the center display. - Refer to the “Fault Codes” section of this manual. Cooling unit sensing: The controls have the ability to sense the operation of the cooling unit. If the controls sense that the cooling unit has stopped cooling: - The heat sources to the cooling unit are turned off and are locked out by the controls. - An audible alarm starts. - A fault code “no” “co” shows in the Center display. You can reset the controls and remove this fault code one time. To reset the controls, shut off and then start the refrigerator. - To turn off the refrigerator, push the ON / OFF button for two seconds and then release. - To turn on the refrigerator, push and release the ON / OFF button.

Owner’s Manual 8

- A fault code “no” “co” shows in the Center display. - This time you can not reset the fault. Have the refrigerator serviced by your dealer or a Norcold authorized Service Center as soon as possible. Effects of High Altitude on Propane Gas Operation When you operate the refrigerator on propane gas at altitudes higher than 5500 feet above sea level: - You may experience reduced cooling performance of the refrigerator. - You may experience burner outages. To avoid these possible problems, Norcold recommends that you operate the refrigerator on AC when at altitudes higher than 5500 feet above sea level. Ice Maker (N109XIM, and N109XIMXX models) The ice maker is assembled to the refrigerators at the factory as optional equipment. If the refrigerator does not have a factory installed ice maker, one can not be added to the refrigerator at a later time. The ice maker is fully automatic and will operate in ambient temperatures as low as 0° F. To allow operation at tempera tures between 0° F. and 32° F., the ice maker has a heater on the solenoid water valve and on the water line between the solenoid water valve and the ice maker. CAUTION: The water line heater does not protect the water supply line from the vehicle shut off valve to the solenoid water valve on the back of the refrigerator. When the freezer temperature of the refrigerator is low enough, the ice maker opens the water solenoid valve and fills the mold. The ice maker ejects the frozen ice into a storage bin. As the storage bin fills, the ice raises the shut-off arm until it turns off the ice maker. As you use the ice and lower the ice level in the storage bin, the shut-off arm also lowers. This turns the ice maker on and begins the process of making ice. The ice maker operates on: - Cold potable water at a pressure of 15 psi - 125 psi. - 120 Volts AC (108 VAC min. - 132 VAC max.). Ice maker operation: 1. Make sure the separate (white) AC power cord which supplies AC to the ice maker is secure. 2. Open the water shut off valve of the vehicle. NOTE: Make sure that the ice maker arm can move freely and does not touch the frozen foods in the freezer. 3. Push the ice maker arm down to the ON position [1] (See Art01015). CAUTION: If you operate the refrigerator without connecting the water supply line and/or opening the water shut off valve of the vehicle, make sure the ice maker arm is up in the OFF position. 4. Allow the freezer to cool enough and ice production will begin to fill the storage bin [2]. NOTE: New plumbing connections and/or impurities in the water supply line after winterizing can cause the first ice to be discolored or have an odd flavor. 5. To stop the ice maker, push the ice maker arm up to the OFF position [3]. Refrigerator Care Checklist Your refrigerator will give you years of trouble free service if you do these simple checks every three to six months: - Keep the food compartment and the freezer clean. See “Cleaning”. - Defrost the refrigerator as necessary. See “Defrosting”. - Make sure the door seals correctly. See “Door Sealing“. - Be aware of any cooling changes that are not because of weather, loading, or gas control changes. If changes occur, contact your dealer or service center. - Make sure the gas supply is propane gas only and not butane or a butane mixture. - When in propane gas operation, examine the appearance of the flame. See “Gas Flame Appearance”. - Make sure the air flow in the lower intake vent, through the refrigerator coils and condenser, and out the upper exhaust vent is not blocked or decreased. - Make sure the area behind the refrigerator is clear. Do not use the area behind the refrigerator for storage of anything, especially gasoline and other flammable vapors and liquids.

Owner’s Manual 9

Defrosting The cooling fins of the refrigerator operate at below freezing temperature and will naturally form frost from humidity, which is always present in the air. The humidity inside the refrigerator increases: - with higher outside temperature and humidity. - with the storage of non-sealed fresh foods or warm foods. - with the amount of time that the door(s) are open. - with any air leakage into the refrigerator. Although the refrigerator is not frost -free, it is made to limit frost on the cooling fins. At regular intervals, the temperature control system automatically melts most of the frost from the cooling fins. The water from the cooling fins drains into a collection cup that is attached to the back of the refrigerator. The heat of the cooling system evaporates the water from the collection cup. It is normal for frost to collect inside the freezer. Excess frost decreases the cooling performance of the refrigerator. Defrost the refrigerator and freezer as necessary: - Remove all food from the refrigerator. - Turn the refrigerator OFF. NOTE: Defrosting the refrigerator makes excess water inside the refrigerator. - Remove the drain hose from the drip cup at the rear of the refrigerator. - Put the drain hose into a half-gallon or larger container to capture water. - Put dry towels (etc.) inside the refrigerator and freezer to absorb melted frost. CAUTION: High temperatures can cause the inside surfaces of the refrigerator to warp or melt. Do not use pans of HOT water, a hair dryer, or any other high temperature devices to defrost the refrigerator. Do not use any hard or sharp objects to remove frost. Damage to the interior of the refrigerator can occur. - To increase the speed of defrosting, put pans of WARM water in the refrigerator and freezer. - Remove the wet towels (etc.) and dry the interior. - Remove the drain hose from the large container and put the drain hose back into the drip cup. - Remove the large container from the enclosure. - Start up the refrigerator. - Allow the refrigerator to cool down. - Return all food to the refrigerator. Cleaning Interior: A good time to clean the refrigerator is just after you defrost it. Clean the inside of the refrigerator as often as necessary to avoid food odors: - Remove all food from the refrigerator. NOTE: Do not use abrasive cleaners, chemicals, or scouring pads because they can damage the interior of the refrigerator. - Wash the interior with a mild cleaner or a solution of liquid dish detergent and warm water. - Rinse with a solution of baking soda and clean water. - Dry with clean cloth. - Put all food in the refrigerator. Drip tray: To remove and clean the drip tray: NOTE: Do not wash the drip tray in a dishwasher. The drip tray is not dishwasher safe. - Pull the drip tray out of the drain hose. - Pull the drip tray forward to remove from the slots in the refrigerator cabinet. - Clean the drip tray. - Push the drip tray back into the slots in the refrigerator cabinet. - Push the drip tray back into the drain hose. Metal doors: To clean the metal doors: - Wash the doors with a mild cleaner or a solution of liquid dish detergent and warm water. - Rinse with clean water. - Dry with a clean cloth.
