Dometic Fridge Fan

I've searched around, but could couldn't find a answer...

I just picked up a new Sunseeker 2450 with a Dometic refrigerator. All weekend the fridge fan ran continuously. I figured since we were using the fridge....?? Ambient temps were mostly 60 to 70. We got home 4 hours ago. I turned off the fridge at the switch. The fan is still running??

Is this normal?

Could it be running on gas?

I'll check again, but we turned the switch on the fridge to off , emptied it and blocked the doors open. All the indicator lights are off...?

It certainly sounds like they wired it wrong.

Just checked the wiring diagram and the wiring. It's wired correctly. The fan is not switched and runs continuously. Wish they had installed a main 12 volt disconnect...

Looks like a mod in my future....

On the diagram it shows a thermo-fuse inline with the fan... Do you think that's really a thermo-disc switch and not a fuse?
