Fire Hazard Recall
I was glancing through my new Good Sam "Highways" magazine today and noticed a two page ad from Norcold - updating a recall initially done in 2002. A search through these forums indicated two postings in 2002 - so I decided to start a new thread. I know Airstream has used Dometic for a long time, but many of us may know people with SOB's - and some have replaced their Dometics with Norcolds.
The 4 door units will be found in RV's made from 1997 to 2003
and 2 door units will be found in RV's made from 1999 to 2000
number plate is found inside the door of the refrigerator in the upper right corner. Models to look for:
4 door: 1200LR 1200LRIM 1201LRIM
2 door: N621 N641 N821 N841 1082
numbers for the cooling unit are found by removing the exterior intake vent cover - the cooling unit's serial number is in plain sight on the unit's lower right side. Serial numbers affected are:

2 door: 1028000 to 1099000
Norcold is advising that you turn the controls to OFF and unplug it from the AC power source.

Your refrigerator will be repaired at no cost to you (The ad also says "IF YOUR REFRIGERATOR QUALIFIES AND WE REPAIR IT AT NO COST TO YOU, WE WILL SEND YOU A $50 GAS CARD).
Sounds like they're trying to do the right thing.
