Exterior Refrigerator Fan Switch

Our December 2018 completion date build sheet for our 19'er shows that we purchased an "Exterior Fridge Fan". My question is... Where's the switch? Or is it automatic? I don't see any mention of the exterior fan in the Escape manual. We have the standard (not the larger) fridge. Here's a picture of the opened outside fridge hatch as I kind of guessed the switch would be outside, like the 120v water heater circuit.

Thank you, in advance, for you help.

My 2014 ran automagically via a thermistor, I added a bypass switch to it as it only went off at a too high temp, which I don't remember.

Normally the manual switch is there, located in red with on/off. Without the switch it is probably thermostatically controlled. Here is a picture of mine in my E19, just the corner is seen around 11 o'clock in the picture

Well... I guess it’s on a thermistor, as there’s no red button/switch there.

Thank you for your help.

exterior refrigeration fan

It's all magic, if we arrive home at 100+ and do not empty the food quick enough, we can hear the fan. It is very noticeable.
