Has anyone else had this issue and how did you get it to stop?
Any guidance would be appreciated.
Thank you, Jimmyd
Jimmy, maybe the original owner installed a cooling fan in the rear of the unit to help it operate. Many RV's where the refrigerator is located in a slideout the factory will install cooling fans because the refer can't be vented through the roof. They do make noise...I have had them.
On your 29MV your refer is not in a slide and vented out the roof so no factory fans are installed...this isn't to say the original owner didn't install one. Usually they are small computer cooling 12volt fans with a thermal switch so they turn on and off automatically.
I would take the cover off the back of the refer (it's on the outside of the motorhome held on by 2 twist locks) and check back there for a fan somewhere.
