I recently bought a Georgetown 2012 model 378 in spring 2011.
It has a 4 doors Dometic refrigerator.
The problem is that the fridge is very noisy when it's hot.
Both fans in the back are working 23 hours on 24.
So, this sound is really unsustainable, especially when the kids are sleeping next to.
My repairer suggested me to shut the fans down because 95% of refrigerators don't even have this.
I don't agree with that because the fridge works well, except for the sound.
I think about 2 problems:
Firstly, the sensors must be defective and too much sensitive to heating, so the fans are working non-stop.
Secondly, the fans are defectives."
The reason is they are not installed correctly for their heat rejection. Fans must run, I have one also. Mine was pulled for the lock never connected at assembly, didn't know about the fans. Alot of guys increased both the efficiency and throughput of the fans to prevent running so much. This fridge is not designed for extended drycamping. Without the fans the fridge don't work. So cut back an amp or two, its still too high with existing fans, the hydraulic system draw alarm draws etc. I searched for the early posts about replacement fans about 1.5 amps each and the existing current monsters but I couldn't find it Oh yes there is no switch for climate control (door edge heating).
