Default Refrigerator fan

The fan on the back of my refrigerator wonít turn on. Does anyone know what that fan is called or a part number so I can get a new one? Iíve been googling it but must not be googling the correct thing as I am not finding anything.

If you're talking about the fan that moves air up the inside of the bottom half of the trailer behind the refrigerator, it is thermostatically controlled, and won't turn on until the temperature in that area is 110 degrees (as I recall). It's possible that the fan is ok but that the temperature in that area has not gotten high enough to turn it on. Also, there is a 1 Amp inline fuse to that fan that might be blown, which would prevent it from operating. The fuse is near the floor of the fan compartment in my trailer.

I replaced my fan with two, computer chassis fans that move more air, are quieter, and use less electricity than the "Mattel toy fan" that was installed in the trailer. My installation is part of this thread, started by sushidog: https://www.hilotrailerforum.com/f35...rator-fan-261/ I also saw a thread recently where a member replaced his fan with three computer fans. Basically, any 12V DC fan that will fit in the space will work.

Ok great I’ll look into both those. It used to run all the time now not at all and the ref will get cold but when I put food in will not stay cold. Hoping it’s the fans.

It may be the fuse, which is an easy fix once you find it.

The fan is a pretty crappy one. If you replace it, DO look at the "sushidog" mod!
