Norcold DE560

Posted on Feb 4, 2014

A Norcold DE560 that was working fine until I turned it on this year. It`s in a boat and when I turne the refrig breaker on it, it pops immediately. is there a fuse or something on the fridge I can check Ok the only thing that will cause the circuit breaker to trip out on 120 volts is the transformer. It has shorted out internally and will need to be replaced. There may be a short in the wires at the strain relief point.

To determine if there is disconnect the unit at the wire nut connection between the strain relief and the VH5P connector. If the breaker still trips the short is in the strain relief. If it doesn`t trip it is in the transformer. Just a little FYI about these units. The compressors are not all that durable. They have a bad habit of going out within the first couple years of use. For all I know it may have been the cause of the transformer going bad. It is possible, albeit not likely. You might want to save a couple bucks for when this happens. Of course when it goes out depends on how much you use it. If it lasts long enough for you to save up the funds you might want to consider replaceing it with a much more dependable absorbtion unit from Norcold. They are well worth the money and have an excellant track record for longevity and durability.
