We had a blockage in our 8 month old Norcold Fridge. We had to cancel our month vacation. We had Norcold tech come out on vacation and nothing was accomplished. So we headed home and took the RV to our local our RV shop. It took 6 weeks for Norcold to do anything. After testing,etc. Norcold decided to install a new cooling system. We ended buying a 4 year warranty on the unit.

NO!!!!!

That plywood is a BAFFLE to help direct the airflow up thru absorber tubes then up and acroos condenser fins then out the upper vent

Baffle is a good thing.

Fans NOT running is major problem of NO Cooling

As suggested JUMPER the 2 wires togther on t-stat and see if fans come on.
If they do REPLACE the t-stat

Did you open the link and look at the pgs ????
Look at pg 34


Better yet...read the whole Service Manual


Is it time for your medication or mine?

The blocking may be there intentionally. Take a picture and post it here.

You should NOT cut plywood without reading the installation manual. Certain baffles are required.
