The thermocouple was attached to the fan leads (they came that way), so as it got hotter in there the fans turned faster. I will see if I can find the company that I purchased the fans from and post the link, its been a few years since I did that upgrade

I believe this fan is similar to what I used a few years ago. Its a good web site I am going to look around for a new fan for my fridge if my RV dealer tells me its going to be weeks before he can fix my "new 2011 camper" http://www.coolerguys.com/840556091172.html

Is this one 12v? I don't see where the voltage is stated.

I think the fans listed are all 12 volts unless specified, but I would give them a call or e-mail before I made a purchase.

I have a 2011 SV291. I have the same cycling fan noise. I believe the fan is actually in the vent hood and draws current from the 12v terminal at the refrig. control wiring.. It cycles on and off and makes the back bunks non-sleepable, very annoying. this our first trip so I will be complaining to the dealer on our return.

My dealer told me that if the fan works then they wont replace it. I spent about $10.00 for a new fan and less than 2 hours to replace it. It would cost me a lot more to drive back to the dealer (fuel and time) and have them replace it.

Angry Dometic fridge fan

I have a 2010 Rockwood 2604 with the Dometic DM2652 fridge, and have the same noisy fan issue - keeps me awake at night and is irritating when sitting outside with its constant cycling (15 sec on; 30 sec off) - does this even when the temp is low (50 deg). The dealer is saying Dometic says the noise is "normal". I bought the trailer for quite relaxation - not with an irritating noise. Guess I'll continue the fight...

yvesm: How did you replace the fan? The dealer said it would be an all day issue, since they had to pull the fridge out to get to the fans...

It was easy. My son helped me take out and put the fridg back in. It took me from start to finish about 2 hours. The fan that they use is a low end 12 volt fan that is real noisy. The fan is an option to the fridge so if you want you can pull the fuse in cooler weather, its located outside behind the vent. If you look here Dometic 1350 fridge at the end of the post you will see images of my work. I used a variable speed silent fan that speeds up as it gets hot.
