We also have a Norcold refrigerator on our boat. I am not very familiar with the wiring set-up as we just bought the boat this year. However, the refrigerator unit itself seems fairly simple as far as operation goes--only an on/off switch in the upper inside corner (very hard to see without getting a kink in your neck!) which lights up green when on, and a temperature dial to adjust temperature.

However, before it will work, I need to turn on the refrigerator switch on a separate DC panel, and turn several switches on at a separate DC panel as well. So, could it be that you are missing a step in the way your boat's electronics are set up, outside of the refrigerator unit?

Just a long-shot thought....

Frank.

The Norcold has an inverter that is wired to the dc system. It kicks in automatically whenever ac power is shut off. You might want to check your unit is wired to the dc, if it is, then check there is juice where it connects to the fridge, if there is then you might suspect the inverter itself.
Good luck
