Step 9: Take out the jumper wire.

Step 10: Unplug the wires at the back of the power board again. In the same order as you initially did. That is:

iv. Spark/Sense electrode assembly wire

Step 11: Screw the cover of the power board back on.

Step 12: Reconnect the wires back to the power board in reverse order. That is:

i. 12vdc negative and positive wires

ii. AC power supply cord

iii. Gas valve solenoid wire

iv. Spark/Sense electrode assembly wire

Step 13: Connect the refrigerator back to the power socket then turn it on. If the refrigerator still displays the error code, carry out the procedure again. Do this until the error code stops displaying.

When to Reset the Circuit Board On A Norcold Refrigerator

The need to reset the circuit board of a Norcold refrigerator often arises when it displays “No co”. The “no co” error often occurs when your fridge has not produced refrigerant for at least 2 hours. And often happens because your fridge’s boiler is overheating.

It can cause serious damage to your fridge and as such should be handled immediately. However, if the “no co” message is being displayed for the first time, simply reset the refrigerator.

If, it is the second time the “no co” message is displayed, resetting your circuit board is one major way to solve the problem. The above procedure will reset most Norcold refrigerator models, including N611, N811, 1200, and 1210.
