Norcold Door Alarm

We just started having a strange issue with the fridge. Doors are closed and in the middle of the night the door open alarm beeps. Get up, push on the door and it stops. Has anyone had this issue and found an adjustment? The door was closed in each instance, but needed more force on the sensor.

On ours the sensors are little buttons on the wall and door. I'd check to make sure the contacts are clean.

Yes, we are having the same problem. Going back 165 miles one way for the second time. We have a 2021 Montana 3762 BP, 4 door Norcold. Last time at the dealer, tech said he could not get the thing to beep. Don't think the tech tried. We will see!

We still have not taken the first trip. I have owned dozens of RV's, never had this issue.

Any suggestions?

Update. On the Norcold four door refrigerator, it is a common occurrence for the flapper door not to close. It hangs up on the bottom and prevents the flapper from closing. On this unit and the last, a 5/16” washer was added to the left door. Our alarm was coming from the right door. Lifting up on the door with my foot caused the alarm to stop. So, adding a 5/16” washer to the right door as well seemed like the solution. However, there was already a thick washer with a notch cut out. So, I ended up putting (3) washers under the right door. If you want the repair procedure, keep reading.

First (same on left or right side - left to free the flapper, right to stop alarm) you need to remove the plastic cover covering the hinge. This is located on the upper left and right corner above the door. This is a five minute job if you get your tools around first. I used a cordless drill, socket to fit the three screws, and a package of 5/16” washers. Easy enough to do for one person. Take the three screws out, open the door while holding the door with both hands and lift. Lean the door against the fridge while you put the washer on the pin at the bottom. Pick up the door, place it back on the pin and close the door. Line up the holes and replace the three screws. Replace the plastic cap. Enjoy the silence (or easy closing of the flapper).

Yep, we had the same issue, the tech added a shim and it fixed the issue.

Happy trails.
