Experienced & Undefeated Norcold RV Refrigerator Fire Lawyers


In 1997, Norcold, Inc. began manufacturing gas absorption refrigerators for use on Recreational Vehicles ( “RVs”).

Unfortunately, many of the refrigerators are dangerously and defectively designed, leading to over 2,500 fires that have caused serious—and sometimes fatal—burns and millions of dollars in property damage.

As a result, Norcold began recalling the defective RV refrigerators in 2000.  The recall, however, failed to correct the dangerous defect, making continued use of the Norcold RV Refrigerators a serious and potentially deadly hazard.

In fact, based on Norcold’s own documents, it appears that between 5 and 10 Norcold Refrigerator catch fire each week, many of which have caused serious personal injuries and substantial property damage.

Norcold’s Recall Fails to Prevent Spontaneous Fires

Initially, Norcold claimed that installation of a “High Temperature Sensor” would prevent any chance of fires by keeping the units cool.

But, even after the installation of the “high temperature sensor,” many refrigerators continued to catch fire and cause serious personal injuries and property damage.  As a result, the company later announced that even refrigerators with the “high temperature sensors” could still be dangerous because of the significant risk of overheating.

Do I have a recalled Norcold Refrigerator?

Here is a list of models subject to the recall and how to identify them:

Model #’s 1200, 1201, 1210 and 1211

These are 4-door, gas-absorption units with serial numbers ranging from 315525 to 13088811. The cooling unit serial numbers on the recalled models range from 700000 to 13085759.

These recalled refrigerators were installed as original equipment in recreational vehicles manufactured from 1997 through 2010.

Other refrigerators subject to the recall may have been purchased as replacement equipment during the same period, 1997 through 2010.

According to Norcold, if your model’s serial number falls within the range listed above, the refrigerator’s gas valve must be replaced immediately.  Without the replacement part, continued use of the refrigerator could cause it to catch on fire, resulting in serious injury or even death.
