Refrigerator may Leak Propane

A propane leak in the presence of an ignition source can increase the risk of a fire.

 

Summary

Norcold Inc. (Norcold) is recalling certain Norcold refrigerators, models N305, N305.3, N306 and N306.3, part number 635690. These refrigerators have gas valve port screws that may be missing or loose allowing propane to leak inside the passenger compartment when the refrigerator is used in gas mode.

 

Remedy

Norcold will notify the recreational vehicle manufacturers that purchased the affected refrigerators, and dealers for those manufacturers will inspect the gas valves, tightening them if necessary, free of charge. The recall began on March 29, 2018. Owners may contact Norcold customer service at 1-800-767-9101.
