Dometic Refrigerator

I have the double door Domectic refrigerator and it makes a lot of noise when operating. The refrigerator has been operating for a week after I took delivery of the Toyhauler which is a new 2013. It cools to the set temperature but is noisy. Anybody experience any noise coming from their Domectic refrigerator?

The only noisy should be coming from cooling fans in the back of the unit. The fans are the same type used in computers.

Replace there junk cheap fans with high quality ball bearing fans of equal size and you'll be fine.

I understand that it may be under warranty but there just going to stick the same fan in.

I heard that Dometic would provide quieter fans if asked.

Dometic Fridge problems

We have had a couple of failures above the noisy fan which I am told is normal? Our service location had to run a separate electrical supply with an inline fuse as Forest River had the fridge on a line with other electrical components. This was done after a lower circuit board shorted out before the fuse on the circuit board blew. There was a black burnt spot on the board just in front of the fuse. (hopefully that was not a potential fire). Second failure was my own fault but a word to the wise here - If your trailer battery goes completely dead, the propane side of the fridge will not work and the system will need to be reset.
2013 365RL Columbus. 93 days on the road and counting this year.

Referring to the battery going completely dead requiring the propane side of the fridge having to be reset... Would this also occur if you remove the battery for winter storage and or maintenance?

I am currently dealing with the Dometic fan noise problem. Mine is on a slide out. I spoke to Dometic on Friday about it. They will sell me one for $99.00 but will not send me one on warranty. They will only send it to a dealer to be installed which they are going to do. I will try this once and if I get another noisy fan then I will do the computer fan install myself as suggested by other posters. This one is made in ......guess where.....China. Ah, the joys of warranty claims.

That's what they told me. They would sell me a fan for $99.00 if I wanted to buy it and install it myself.
