If your fridge is in a slideout there is no roof vent.

The fan is there to keep a draft moving over the fridge coils. It is a thermally controlled motor that has a thermal switch attached to the hot pipe. Most of them do not run all the time, just when the ambient temp is high or the fridge is working hard to keep cool.

The fridge is not in a slide, I have no slide outs. I've read that the specific fan I have is pretty noisy so I am thinking of putting a new one in. Also it does not run all the time but a few times a day it will run for 0.5-3 hours.... around mid day and 7pm when the sun is directly on the outside panel....witch now thinking about it makes sense. I don't think I have anything to worry about. Thanks for the help guys you're all great!

There are many who add these after market. They are rather noisy when they come on. At least mine is.

Just install a 4" ball bearing computer fan or 2 if needed, they have a low amp draw.
