Potential serious fridge issue?


Recommended Posts

Just turned off my Dometic fridge with the on/off button. According to the manual, that button cuts power, both a/c and d/c, to the fridge.

 

Yet the 12v fan is still running. Is there some safety feature that won't allow the fridge to shut down until the boiler has cooled? Nothing in the manual about that....

It may be wired to leave the fan under thermostat control. I would give it a bit of time and see if the fan stops. The on/off does not remove the 12V power it only powers down the circuits from operation but power is available so it could leave the fan to run until things cool. I'd need to look at the schematic to be sure.

I believe some of the fans are added by the RV manufacturer and those may be completely independence of the refrigerator power switch. Many units installed in slideouts probably did not come from Norcold or Dometic with fans and, therefore, had fans installed by the RV builder. I am not an expert but I stayed in a RV last night.....
