Ron, on my 2010 2350, the cap started making a rattling noise.  By the time I got from AZ to the factory, it had become a VERY loud noise.  They took out the cabinets and put in additional screws in the cap/cab.  It took them about 4 hours and many more screws/test drives before the rattle stopped.  Hope that's not your problem, because it was quite a job getting it fixed.

Don't have a picture, but what I did was take the door off the hinge and epoxy the broken piece back together.  After it dried, I put the door back on the pin hinge and filled the open void in the door piece with epoxy.  After it dried, I painted it black.  Didn't have a problem with the repaired door, but I did trade it in the next year so don't know the longevity of the repair.  One thing I should point out, the door insert that PC puts in the decorative front slip of the door is VERY heavy.  That could also contribute to the breaking door part.  The replacement door was light (weight) until I put the decorative piece back in the door front.  All in all, be happy, don't worry...

Tom, as noted earlier, the plastic piece that breaks is  on the fridge door, not the hinge bracket and pin attached to the fridge frame.  The door piece broke on my prior 2007 and 2010 PCs.  Maybe they changed the design in 2013, but my current 2012 has the same plastic door part that breaks.  The epoxy fix worked on the second break on my 2010 PC, so I now travel with epoxy "just in case".

Sparky, unless you have a totally different fridge, the metal part is the pin.  The molded plastic piece on the door is the part that breaks.  That's why I'm surprised there is a repair kit.  Norcold sends you a complete door when the part breaks.

It's not only the older pc's that have the hinge problem.  The hinge broke on my 2010 twice: the first was the original door that came with the fridge, the second was the hinge on the replacement door from Norcold they sent me in 2011.  The door on my current 2012 looks identical to the one on my prior 2 pc's.

The Ford chasis is delivered with a plastic seat bolted in place for the driver and no seat in the passenger side.  PC puts the final seats in, so they're not covered under the Ford warranty.

I keep seeing references to a fix kit.  Not sure how that would work on our doors since the hinge is molded into the door.  Are you sure this fix isn't for a different fridge than PC installs?

I have had two hinge breaks at different times on our previous 2350.  The first was under warranty, and Norcold sent me a new door without any questions (they've had so many break, they expect claims).  The second happened when the warranty had expired, and they in so many words told me to bad--buy a new door.  Instead, I epoxied the hinge back on the door, and it worked fine.  They're aware of the design defect, but won't do anything to correct it.  If I had a hinge with a hairline crack, I'd call and tell them the hinge broke to get the new door--because it will break.  They don't want the old door back.

You asked what size accumulator tank I used and where I put it.  I can't remember the size, but it was the largest of the 2 that Home Depot sells.  I took out the bass speaker under the bed, built a cradle and strapped the tank in.  The speaker was too loud when one person was listening to surround sound and the other was in bed, so it wasn't missed.  Someone else asked about access to the pump--the bed board on my PC was cut in half--the head board piece was screwed down, the foot board piece was not so it was easy to gain access.  The space on my current 2552 was more limited, so I had to use the smaller tank.  Both tanks significantly reduced the pump noise and run time.  Installation was simple and inexpensive--two things I like.

On my previous 2350 and current 2552, I installed an expansion tank that took care of the water pump noise--lot cheaper than replacing the pump.  I also had the water backflow and black gunk in the 2350 water fill/overflow tubes.  I replaced both tubes taking the sag out of each correcting those conditions.

There was another string on this forum about this problem.  My detector had the same problem last year, and PC sent me a replacement.  A couple months ago, the same problem occurred on the replacement detector.  The only way to quiet the signal is to disconnect it.  I will buy a different brand this time instead of replacing a bad one with another potential bad one.

Seems to be all too true, Ron.  Maybe if everyone called Norcold during their warranty period and claimed their hinge broke and got an extra door to use when the hinge breaks after the warranty runs out-- Norcold will decide it would be cost effective for them to change the hinge design.  Yeah, right... Haven't heard anything new on the class action suit against Norcold for their other problem. Guess they have bigger problems on their agenda.

The handle can be raised when locked, but it should not turn.

The hinge on our previous 2350 broke twice.  The first was within the warranty period, and Norcold sent us a new door.  The second time was outside the warranty period, and Norcold wouldn't do anything.  I kept contacting Norcold, but they said they wouldn't do anything since it was not in warranty - even they knew the hinge design was a problem.  The last person I talked with said he "would pass on my comments".  Yeah, right...  I fixed the last break with J-B Weld.

I always fill my tank at home so I don't have to worry about finding water and the quality of the water.  It does add weight, but not enough to concern me--I've had friends ride along that weighed more than the water Grin  It's whatever you're comfortable with I guess.
