    Default camping fridge cooling fan problem

    we have a snowmaster 60l double door fridge and the cooling fan gave us some trouble , it does'nt work to blow the air from the freezer side to fridge side

    i took the fan out and saw that if you bump anything to the side of the fan it jams ,then the fans gets pressed against the body so to speak ,and the cooling on the other compartment gets hotter .

    so, is there not something better than this tipe of fan that i can modify,

    i have allways tried to pack the stuff away of that fan ,but the trailor hop so baie op die grond pad ,but it is so a flimsy fan anyway ,any idees ,please

    ja, gaan snowmaster bel ,dankie vir die tel. no.

    i have made a test today just to see what is happening to when i set the temp to it's highest ,here is some foto's i took about every 30 min apart

    the compartment on the right ,that is where the fan is to get the colder air is working just fine without the fan ,but i adjusted it to a higher setting and will check what the temp is in the morning .

    I have exactly the same snomaster. That little fan was replaced by me and to find the exact same one is impossible. So i put in a thicker one,which protrudes a bit on the fridge side.

    That little fan is a chinese gimmick. The aluminium sheeting of the cooler side goes cold from the freezer side.
    The switch or controller is only to switch off the pescy little fan , which also screams like a banshee when it is lekker cold.

    So what i am saying is that you should ignore it.

    My fan on my NL 40 gave up. Looked like aneasy job so I went to our local matrix and took the sample. No problem gave me a fan looked exactly the same size and power.

    Fitted it, ...... and now my fridge looks like a disco. This fan had a built in light
    Lusted for a Landy but the Pajero was sexier and bigger in the right departments, just like my Missus.

    dis net soos jy se ,as dit begin skreeu dan raak ek gatvol ,maar daai yskas het geen einde nie hoor ,maar kan 'n mens die gat effe groter sny ,want jy kry 'n groter fan by brights ,maar kan dit die koue hanteer ,

    wil nie gat so los nie en koue wat ingeblaas word help lekker

    Toets die fridge kant met sommer n huis termometer ,jy kan so 3-5 grade aftrek.
    Voel met jou hand die binne wand van die fridge , dan sal jy voel hoe koud hy word.

    Alberto hier is nog iets vir jou snowy
    Isoleer wand binne die "cover"veral die vloer. Gemaak van oefen mat ,pattex.
    LED vir krag en die compressor. .
    Om te sien of die yskas se krag gekoppel is Krag led vanaf die + op die controller van compressor. Ek het dit gedoen nadat my lighter plug op 12v nie so lekker gekontak het nie. Toe weet ek van niks . Die geel led is die krag.
    Rooi Compressor led vanaf die cooling fan op die condenser. so as cooling fan aangaan saam met compressor brand die led.Gaan af saam met comp.

    JAN, ek lag lekker vir die naam van die yskas ,snowy, ,dit gaan van nou af hier genoem word

    die led lig is briljant hoor ,ek het altyd maar oor gegooi met die opstart slag ,as die probleem verlede jaar gebeur het dan het ek by jou 'n draai kom maak ,ons was des 25 in jou dorp oppad mata mata toe en by daan viljoen oorgeslaap.

    die oefenmat is dit vir die koue inhou of vir die stampe .
