Norcold Refer fan runs forever

I have a four door Norcold in my 2004
winnebago adventurer. When outside temperature hits about 75 to 80 degrees the fan never wants to shut off. I was wondering if anyone else has had this problem. There was a recall on my model that required a sensor for overheating pipes. Problem seemed to start after that. Called Norcold but theye were very vauge. thought maybe it could be door seals. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks, Frank

The fan is controlled by a thermostatic switch, It may be hot enough to turn it on just from the heat of the sun.

Today, I ran my generator for a couple hours while I got my eyes checked and wife went shopping,,, Since I knew it was going to be over an hour I put the Gen-Turi on, NEVER before has it been so hot it was uncomfortable taking it off... Not the generator's heat, The SUN's heat, Same with your fan.

Has nothing at all to do with the Norcold recall. Those are demand fans when the fridge needs help shedding the heat.

It's very common when it's that warm for the fans to run often. You might want to clean or have someone clean the stack behind the fridge. Dirt, dust, webs and bee nests in the stack can impede the natural air flow and cause the fans to run more. Also if your fridge is on the sunny side of the Rv and you can put down the awning to shade that side the fans will run less.

If it is really hot, take off the upper vent cover to allow more air circulation. I had to do that last summer in Texas when it was 105-110.
