Frig latch

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,  

Still working on my laundry list of things to fix on my just bought 2003 Diplomat. It has a four door Norcold frig. The latch allows the door to loosen just enough to start the open door alarm. Even parked for the night just walking around the coach it goes off,  slight push hear a click and Alarm goes off then in a few minutes it is sounding if again. I looked for adjustment and searched this forum. 

Any ideas?

Skykingtcb. Model number of the Norcold might help the group.

Are the surfaces of the Door seal clean?

Are the refrigerator surfaces clean? 

Check the door seal gaskets for any damage to the seals where the material folds between the portion on the door and the magnetic strips that attach the seals to the metal door opening.

The listed links might be for parts that would resolve the latch issue(s)

Could you attach a picture of the offending latch and the point it latches to for the group?

I just had mine repaired in  Chandler, Az. The problem is a very common issue. There is a magnetic switch in the door, I think it was in the left lower door. What happens is the door shims at the lower hinge needs to be replaced to allow the magnet to align with the switch. I fought with mine for about a year. There are other issues that need to be addressed. I would call for a Norcold auth. repair service and have the entire frig inspected. One of the issues is over heating of the cooling unit and in some cases, it turned into a fire hazard. Not trying to scare you, but get it check out by a professional.
