RM 1350 Dometic Cooling Fans wired direct.

Up until a couple of days ago, the refrigerator was working fine. Then 49 degrees. Cooling fans not working. Wired fans to run all the time. Refrigerator now works OK.

Is it OK to allow fans to run continuously for the next couple of months until I get home and investigate further?

Thanks for your help!!

Don

From my reading, yes, it's okay. Some setups have them running all the time, others have a thermodisk that shuts them off occasionally. You can put in a switch if you'd like. Turn them off in Oct, back on in June. Those fans are often the same quality as computer fans and have the approx same life so they are a maintenance item, you need to check them occasionally.

If ambient air temps drop below 50*F I would turn the external fans off

You can overcool condenser....fans need not be running when Condenser FIN temp drops below 120*F
*needed when Condenser FIN temp reaches 140*F
