Noisy Dometic fridge fan

It was our second trip out with the new trailer. The fridge just started making a loud buzzing sound. I believe it's the cooling fan. Anyone else have this happen and is the fan easy to replace

I disconnected the loud stock fan and put in a bigger quieter one.

I only have 1 fan just below top vent. It looks very dirty. New trailer to. Think I will replace with new one maybe 2. TURBS it looks like yours was replaced with 115V fan.

Doug, I replaced it with two actually.
1 120v and 1 12v
The top is 120v but I also added a temp controller as you can see above the fridge.
I also have the same size fan in the lower compartment that is 12v and also runs on a fan controller.
Both 120mm

Ok that makes sense. Did you remove fridge or work through the 2 outside vents.

On my 29RE CC 5er they show 2 fans on fridge schematic.....They must be between lower and higher vents......I cannot hear them...I am thinking that they may not be there without taking the unit out from inside......any ideas???? J
