The refrigerator seems cold enough, as does the freezer. I don't notice this at all when it's on propane only.
Anybody else hear of this? Something I should be concerned with?
Not sure at this time what model Dometic indoor fridge we have, but we had the same problem. After lubing the orginial fan motor and still having the same problem, our dealer replaced the orginial motor with a new one and no noise since.
Yes it is a very annoying noise, especially at night. I heard that this motor has caused problems in the past, but can't prove it.
If your fridge is like ours, it is a simple task - just unplug and remove the current fan motor plug and install and plug in the one.
On our model, the fan is accessable from the rear exterior top panel. If it truly is the source of the noise, you will hear it when you get into the compartment.
Hope this helps.
