If you are referring to the fan installed behind the refrigerator, there is a thermal switch mounted on the upper rear fins that will cycle the fan on and off as needed. There is also a fuse for the fan and thermal switch circuit that may have blown.

I had to replace a failed fan behind my Dometic refrigerator. Dometic used a cheap sleeve bearing fan. Fortunately, it is a commonly available 120mm 12 volt power supply fan. The replacement fan I used was a Delta AFB1212L dual ball bearing server fan that is designed to operate 24/7. The fan draws so little power, I simply wired it to operate whenever the refrigerator is on, bypassing the thermal switch (one less thing to fail).

The new replacement Delta fan was about $9 on Ebay, and fit the existing bracket behind the refrigerator perfectly.

Cornelius, how noisy is the replacement fan? The current OEM fan in our fridge drives me nuts! It would be well worth 9 bucks and a bit of time to get a little peace and quiet.
