Defect:  In certain travel trailers, motor homes, and fifth wheel campers equipped with Norcold refrigerator cooling units, model numbers N841, N821, N641, and N621, the refrigerators can experience a cooling system leak caused by operation in the AC electric mode. If a leak occurs, the cooling performance of the refrigerator will deteriorate, requiring immediate replacement of the cooling unit. Extended operation of a leaking cooling unit in the AC electric mode can result in a fire.
Remedy:  Norcold will inspect and replace the refrigerator cooling units. Owners should contact Norcold at 1-800-767-9101 or Jayco at 1-219-296-6000.
