Fridge has internal fans?

It sounds as though our 4 door 12 cu ft fridge has fan/s that run from time to time in the upper part of the fridge. I had planned on doing the computer fan mod to this fiver when we got it, but it sounds like that's not necessary. I think it is a Dometic 1350 (I'm at work right now).

If the fridge is in a slide-out there will already be a fan since it cannot vent through the roof. You may want to replace with something quieter but not necessary . Enjoy your new trailer and travel safely, Hank

Have the same fridge. Their are four fans mounted on the top at a right angle to the coil. If you remove the top vent you can see them. My went in for service for the fans because they were so loud. Fan kit was installed and the fans were remounted with rubber gourmets between the bracket and motor. Helped some but it still make noise. I'd like to add an additional fan and the bottom. Was going to use a Samsung fridge fan motor.

DUH! Lol. I cant believe I didn't even think about there not being a vent in the roof because of the fridge in the slide. Wow, it is Monday for some of us. haha.

I don't mind the noise of the fan/s. Just wondering if they are good, or could use some up-grading? I would like to have the best cooling I could have.
