Dometic fridge fan

Just picked up our 2011 2902SS on April 30. The Dometic Fridge fan is extremely noisy. Anyone else having this problem. I am think about replacing it with an after market quieter fan(s).

No fridge fan noise at all on mine. On a 2011 model sounds like a factory defect to me.

Let the dealer replace it under warranty.

Now I can also add water pump failure to the list!

In the back outside where the tubes are. It comes on when it gets hot in there to help with the cooling efficiency of the fridge, except mine is so noisy it wakes you up at night. It actually makes more noise than the furnace blower!

Is that something new? I don't have a fan on my fridge and I have a 2008 motor home.

I was told its a new thing they put in to help with the cooling when it gets hot, and it was hot this weekend. I actually put a fan in my 2001 Shamrock to help during the hot weather, I used 2 muffin fans with thermocouples that would control them. I also had an on/off switch on the fans. Sort of like those solar covers for your fridge to vent out the heat. http://www.campingworld.com/shopping...t-system/47888

Where did you get the thermocouple and are there different temperatures that are available?
