how do you pull the fridge? What's holding it in there?

I pulled the outside panel off this past weekend and it's the fan, but there' no way to reach up in there.
I'll gladly pull the fridge and move the sensor!

the frig pulls from the inside. u undo the gas line and unplug the electrical. the mounting screws are located on flange that fits against the cabinet on the inside of the trailer. take them out and pull into the trailer.
depending on where that sensor is, it may be easier to take the vent off and reach down in there. in other words, i don't know where it is but assume it would be near the ceiling.
oh i didn't account for the vent fan wire...that will most likely have to be disconnected also.
i would probably locate that sensor (switch) before i pulled the frig.

dalemel 5924: I have found the perfect cure for this fridg that cycle on and off. Get a evaporator fridg home motor and install it inside the fridg. I have done that on all my 13 trailers that I had over the years. I had to find a cure for this anoying on and off affair specially at night when you try to sleep. These motors usually comes with the fan and bracket. In this case I mounted a l bracket and this fits perfectly without any drilling on the fridg side. I installed a switch ( rocker ) to turn it on and off as needed. These motors are almost silent when they runs. Your fridg cools perfectly and gess what: the 12 voltbuilt in motor in the fridg dont even start at all. See my pictures. I know that with your knowledge in electrical it will be a piece of cake to install. Try it. See my pictures included

I beg to differ. If you go to the website for the fridge you will see that there are 2 fans mounted at the top of the fridge at the back to cool the condensor.

Well our T21FBS has been in Lazy Days for warranty work, and when I put it in, I printed some of this thread and brought the subject with the dealer. They took it up with Dometic and the result, problem fixed without any effort.
Thanks to all who contributed to this thread -- it solved my problem very easily.
