Only difference to mine, which I've yet to hear the fans run on, is it is backed up to the left to the little stop that sticks up.

Yes, Thank you, I have moved mine toward the burner, it gets hotter there but still not turn on. Mine is now stretched as far as the wires will permit it. I removed my plastic tub and ran the drain down the hole. I'll post a picture tomorrow.

I checked mine yesterday with my new laser infrared meter, it was reading 110 F on electric, set on #4, 38/8 readouts inside the unit. The closer to the "stack" the hotter that tube reads, up to 140 degrees. I sent an email to the Dometic rep asking what the on set point was supposed to be for the cooling fans. As you can see, I'm about 3" away from the stack and a lot closer than you are.This is as far as I can slide it due to the wires. I'll check again today to see if it comes on.

Look at the Dometic thermostat switch mounted on the line not the switch you installed. It should have some numbers on it telling you the cut in and cut out.

Okay, been on phone most of today, my switch has the letters "03E NGT" and I googled NGT and found the company in California with headquarters in Japan that sells to Dometic the thermostat for the fans control. I spoke to a very nice man in engineering who asked for the info printed on the thermostat. I went back and copied "03EN2007 B70C06C10T150" I called him back and he says this is a 150 degree F switch and no way it will operate a cooling fan. He asked me how old was the unit and I said "brand new" well the switch is an old one, made in 2010 Anyway he understands I need one to come on around 100 and off at 90 the standard for cooling fans. He is going to call Japan and then Dometic to find out how the wrong one is being used and get me the right one, really nice guy at NGT Manufacturing.

Hi: cpaharley2008... Thanks for your concern. I sure hope these double door fridges weren't designed by the same committee!!! Alf
