The 4.3 and 6.7 have the same crisper. They are pretty much the same fridge with the same shelfs except the 6.7 is taller. Tractors1 made and sized this tray in the bottom of the fridge in his 6.7 after we compared measurements to make sure they were the same.

We removed the crisper months ago and like it a lot better. By removing the crisper in our 4.3 and ordering and installing an extra lower shelf for a 6.7 which is a little longer in the back it gives us a lot more room for storage. The crisper has the rear corners cut at 45 degree angles so you loose a lot of room in the back.

The bottom tray keeps things from rolling into the door and will also catch any spills.

We removed the freezer too and it works for US.

I started with the crisper lid under the bottom shelf, on the top of the crisper , and it worked horribly.

Then I realized it snaps on top of the bottom shelf and now it works smoothly.

Oh, also, The rear of the crisper should be the tapered end. Somehow I had that backward too which forced the bottom of my door slightly open.... Until I did the light test and saw it too.

This is the part number for the lower shelf that fits either the 4.3 or 6.7 that you use when you remove the crisper if you want a shelf. They run around $60. We got ours through camping world because they were cheaper then Dometic at the time.

This is the part number for the upper shelf that you use if you want to remove the freezer section on a 4.3.

The crisper lid should snap in the side slots and act as your lower shelf. Then the crisper drawer slides in under it with the tapered end toward the back.

This is the best picture I can find.

Hi Kountry Kamper excellent pic of crisper . We want to remove it and put shelf in . Maybe the metal open shelf will help circulating the cold . Have you found that ? Also want the little tray on bottom . Can I order that from tractor 1 ? The freezer we want to keep for now but still may get top shelf . Thankyou for the info . Also noticed it looks like a wired black fan . How did you do that if that is what it is ? You came up with excellent ideas here .

Yes the wire shelf allows a lot better airflow. Message tractors1 about the tray. I had ours made 1" high and you will need to decide if that's Ok for you or if you want it a little taller, say 1.5".

The fan is a small 13 CFM axiel fan blowing down that I have wired to a switch installed inside in a cabinet (part number 6RRJ0 and guard part number 3RP19 from Grainger that you can find on Amazon or the internet). It has helped a lot with the fridge cooling issues by keeping just a little air moving around the fridge and is very quiet and I don't have to use the small battery fans any longer. We tried the Fridge Fix fan but found it actually drove our temps up which is the same thing Reace and others have found.
