I don't know. I was told that the new fridge has its own fan, but I can't tell if it comes on or not. Should I be able to hear it?

Hi Mike,

What did you have the frig set at?

Thanks,
Kathie

We have yet to challenge our new fridge to higher temperatures, but I thought I could contribute some information I got from Tammy at ETI. When we picked up our trailer in May I asked if it had all the upgrades for maximum performance. She said that the fridges being installed still lacked an extra fan to increase performance, a modification that Dometic would be making available possibly in the summer. So I was planning to contact them in August and see if they could install the fan. The fridge performed fine in 70 - 80 deg weather, but we will be trying it this summer in much warmer environments.

Sounds like I need to have my own fan installed if a shop is replacing the fridge. I seriously doubt Dometic would foot the bill for an R&R for the unit just to install a fan if it came to that, or even just ADDING their missing fan if that's possible from the access panel.

When ETI installed the fridge they set it at five bars; I didn't change this.

Also, I was told at the time that the fridge has a fan.

Mike I believe you should be able to hear it . The problem with mine is the limit switch is set too high .But I believe it should be set lower in your frig now . Maybe give escape a call and ask that ?or if temp keeps getting that high call Escape . Reace told me some things to try one was keep it on 4 if that isn't good put on 5 . But you should hear your fan come on once in awhile . Pat

Does anyone know- on the two door replacement are people keeping the Texas fan (if they had one) and having it installed on the new two door model? Is it possible to do?
Thanks

When I had my fridge replaced 2 weeks ago the tech told me the new one had a fan on it, he removed the fan form the old unit and did NOT install them on the new one.
