That switch is thermal controlled. Turned on, it allows 12v power to go to the thermal unit to the fan. When the heat build up reaches a certain temperature, the thermal unit allows the 12v power to go to the fan and turn it on. When the heat dissipates, the fan turns off. This way the fan is not constantly running. If your fan is like the one I had, you can peel back the paper label and find a rubber plug. Pull it out, put a few drops of oil in the hole, reinsert the plug. Or just replace the fan with a new quieter fan. Hope this helps.

AND, there IS a fuse for the fan. It's inline on my trailer and is in the compartment below the one the fan is in. (Near the back base of the fridge.) As I recall, it's a 1 Amp fuse. But, as Bob said, the fan may not be running because the area it's in may not be hot enough.

And if it's noisy, go to the "search" header and check out the sushi mod, and maybe change the fan! It's been fantastic in my unit.
