Dometic Fridge

Why do the fins in my fridge get so built up with ice? I slide my temp way down even.

From opening the door alot, or the seals aren't sealing properly. Try the dollar bill test on the fridge seals. Put the bill by the seals (top, bottom, both sides) and close the door. Pull on the bill and you should feel resistance. Lots of people use either a fan like this FridgeCool Fan with On/Off Switch - Valterra A10-2606 - Refrigerator Accessories - Camping World or install a computerlike fan that blows on the fins. Do a search of fridge fan and you'll find lots of info like this, Internal Fridge Fan

Yes i did the bill test and had resistance all around. I do have the small blue cube fan and like others it just dont move air that good. I will check ebay.
