I thought about putting some kind of 90 degree piece on it and running it out the top side vent but finally just bit the bullet and pulled it.
    My frig is running top shelf.
    Setting 3 and 4.
    Sometimes we bump it up if we put alot of warm stuff in, the turn it back down. The old aluminum baffle was actually preventing the escape of the hot air. There's a cavity above the baffle so now two fans face out factory face up. Working fantastic.

    Remove the aluminum baffle, cut two screws left and right from outside. Mount 2, 6 x 6 dc computer fans blowing out. Tie them into the Norcold fan wiring.
    Also make sure you have a vent cap on the exhaust stack. It allows the heating process to do it's magic to the absorption ammonia.
    Last year I left the fridge on 3and 4 ice cold beer.

    Re: Electrical advice refrigerator fan mod

    Very interesting topic guys, as I have replaced a couple external fans in the past. One thing that I was un aware of and did not see it mentioned in this thread. These external computer fans as some call it have a shelf life. I notice this on mine several years ago I could tell the fan was getting hot by a slight burn mark in the fan. I replaced it with identical fan and read the fine print and it was like 1 year of continuous use. When I took the old one out I could tell the blades were not spinning as freely as new. Since we full time that fan was running 24/7. I eventually has a fellow Heartlander tell me about a a/c version of that fan that the shelf life was over triple as the d/c ones. It was 5 years if I'm not mistaking. Hope this helps,
    Bobby A

    The fans that I'm using are from magnum inverters.

    I see discussion on burner vent caps not being installed. I have attached pictures of my vent system. Does this look correct?
