    Not sure if this has been posted before on Fun .. but in any case this is an update:

    Many RV owners are unaware that their RV refrigerator may be affected by recalls from 1987 through 2010. Over 2 million refrigerators may be fire hazards. [HI]The recall list has been updated with new models, so keep checking.[/HI] Even if yours is not under recall today, it may be in the future.

    Link to Norcold product recall information and how to identify the affected models.. http://www.norcoldrecall.com/

    Check yours ASAP .. This is the result of a fridge failing

    From another RV forum so I can't vouch for the accuracy of this information....

    I have been in contact with Dometic USA and they told me to contact Dometic UK at Blandford Forum.
    I contacted them and they were really helpful.
    They checked my fridge details to check it was on the Recall list,which it was, then took my postcode and said their agent would be round within 10 days to fit the new heat shields and overheat cut off sensor.
    They done a great job free of charge on the date they had given.

    Dometic UK can be contacted on 01258 414595 (speak with Catherine as she is aware of these recalls).

    Although we dont own an RV I still wish to thank you for this post because without Funsters like you others may not be aware of the problem and any information is always welcome.

    Ours has a big silver Dometic fridge freezer. When we first bought it Nov 09 it stopped working the 3rd time out.
    A fellow camper ( in the know ) looked in the cupboard at the back for us where it was all smokey and black :Eeek:and said we needed to get it back to the dealers to be checked out. Not to try using it again:Eek!:
    Fortunately it was well below freezing , over the New Year so non of the food went to waste. The upside of this was that our 2006 model got all brand new fridge workings , and so it should have.
    The downside may have been like the picture:Sad:
    So its not just RV and 5th wheelers that need to know about this.

    Even if your refrigerator was repaired as part of a previous recall it is necessary to have it repaired again to minimize
    the risk of injury or death due to fire.:Doh:
