Jumping the cooling fans

I have the 1200 LRIM Fridge and it works OK just OK not great just OK. I have replaced the thermistor and adding fans INSIDE. My outside fans do come on and I can hear them running. The passage is clear all the way to the top. My question is Is there a way to install a switch so I control when the outside fans come on?

My MH has been at the dealer for a month. Them doing extended warranty work before the extended warranty runs out and they can not find anything wrong with the fridge.... I was hoping they would so I could pay the difference and have the Amish Cooling Unit installed. Which they were willing to do if my Fridge was bad and I was willing to pay the difference. Just my luck the the darn thing worked just fine while there....


Thanks Lee

Just like Bill said. Remove your roof cover to locate your dual fan assembly. There will be a thermostat snap-disk switch mounted to your condenser coil near the fans. Cut those 2 wires (With the +12VDC removed from the frig. first). Splice in 2 wires, run them down to a convienient location and mount the switch. Now you are controlling when the +12VDC operates the fans.

Just so I understand .......The outside fans are optional? You have to install them if you would like them right? deSanford

The OP was refering to INSIDE fans which are an aftermarket add-on.

Suggestions:

1. If you just use a switch, use a pilot light in the circuit as a reminder that the fans are on.

2. You can also use a timer switch that will turn off after a preset time. Available at home centers.
