Try putting the sensor in the coldest area the sensor tether will allow.

406 units sold on this ad. He has sold 3,200 units with 100% feedback ( Read towards bottom of the ad). DOMETIC NORCOLD REFRIGERATOR FAN FOR RV 12 VOLT: eBay Motors (item 250677760674 end time Dec-02-10 14:37:30 PST)I bought mine 3 years ago when I had my Mh. Great customer support, he will answer any questions you have. My friend bought one and his model did not have hot 12v at light. The seller offered him full refund with shipping included. However the seller sent him pics how others had done it where there was no hot 12v at light, they simply run a 18 gauge 2 foot piece wire down the drain tube to the back of the refrigerator, this worked great.
Mine always stays where I clip it, always keeps ice off of the fins. Humidity is what ices up fins causing refrigerator fins not to extract heat from box, and and ice on the fins makes thermistor that's mounted on fin to think its cold and keeps refrigerator from running. This fan prevents the ice build up.
Great item every camper should have, I bought a spare so when mine quits I will have it. Mine is 3 years old and going strong.

For those that aren't afraid of a little modification, here's a link to the "original" product. (MassCool 4B02S4 Hard Disk Cooler). Cheaper @ $4.99 & $1.99 shipping, but you will have to cut off the Molex plug & install the ground clip...

Newegg.com - MASSCOOL 4B02S4 Hard Disk Cooler

You get points for finding this on NewEgg. This is exactly what this guy is selling on Ebay for a lot more.

Could someone enlighten me with either pictures or description on how the fan is secured? If I get the fan from New Egg or another computer supply place, it will no doubt need to be modified right?

Thanks...

Chris

I've looked at the picture closely and it may not be much other than a paperclip device or just a hole in one fin and a plastic wire tie.
The objective to to just have air movement over the fins.
The fans seem not to be that reliable so I will wait and watch.

Let us know if you find out more.

The one from Ebay stays in place with the alligator clip that is attached to a fin to create the ground to power the fan.

Please excuse my ignorance on this as I want to make sure I have it right.

Did you mean that the alligator clip is perminently attached to the fan and this then clips on the fin in the back of the fridge? Does the fan weight not make it fall off when traveling?

I just want to make sure that if I get one that I know how to modify it properly.

Thanks....

Chris

Chris,
Yes- the alligator clip is permanently attached and it is the clip that holds the fan in place. The one on ebay has one of the clips jaws covered in soft vinyl that more or less keeps it from slipping. You need to rest the fan on the shelf to support it and make sure that it doesn't slip off.

Thanks Tom.

That helps. And I just have to run the one wire to the fridge light.
