Yes it seems they are cheap noisy fans.
On our 378TS I think you may have to pull the refrigerator out to change the fans becasue I can see that high in our outside vent.
Now has anyone pulled the refer on a 378 yet to replace fans?
Here is a picture from the rear where they are located.

I have the 320 Crusader and I am assuming the access to your refrig. is somewhat different so I will not comment on that.However I do have the RM 1350,double door unit with the two cooling fans at the rear of the unit.They seemed to be functioning ok,but were noisy.I was talking with another member here and he switched his out and went with a different brand of cooling fans.I too purchased these and before installing them found out that they DID not put out the same cfm or rpm that the original Sunon fans did. As a matter of fact they put out only 50% of the Sunon fans.These replacement fans had an additional temperature sensor that regulated the speed of the fan.The circuitry installed in the refrigerator already regulates when the fans will start based on temperature.Long story short,I bought two more of the Sunon fans and installed them. They are quieter, but listening to how they run is an indication that they do MOVE a lot of air!

I know these fans don't cost $100 plus dollars as per dealer.
Anyone have a picture of the manuf and part number so we can check and cross reference.

I know this about the fans so far but if I saw the actual label would be great.
12 Volt DC
92mmx92mmx25mm
Probably in the 65-75 cfm range

Our 2012 Silverback 29rk has had two of these fans replaced since we brought in December of 2011 and the current one (third) is making some noise now.

On our model which is installed in the rear left corner, access to the fan is though the top most vented panel. The fan lies on a shelf and is easy to remove and replace.

They are, IMO, a piece of crap. I would gladly give in and replace it with a quality fan if one is available.

I got mine at best buy .
They have all sizes.
And not EVEN close to that price.

I even installed an extra one in my wfco converter housing for piece of mind.


P.S. I bought two 120 mm
And 6 80 mm for under $50.00

4 of them were led lighted.

They are quiet and I believe have a 50,000
Hour life expectancy.
