Refrigerator on electric, coil is warm in back, cooling very well.

Whining sound louder outside the trailer at the louver, than inside.

Sounds exactly like a small fan with bad bearings whining.

Is there a fan at the top of the refrigerator exhaust duct?

Pulled all fuses and turned off breakers one at a time, the only noise is coming from the refrigerator.

I will get on top of the trailer and remove the exhaust vent cover next.

The rear fan is on a tstat of its own. Once the rear temp cools down the fan(Noise) goes away. Doug

Refrigerator is in cooling mode again and the whining returns.

I do not see a fan anywhere.

Sounds now like it is in the cooling circuit. When I turn off all power to the unit the noise keeps singing for maybe three minutes, then slowly coasts down to no noise.

Will call the factory in the am.

You are not going to see the fan. You have to pull the refer to get access and see the fan. THERE IS NOTHING IN THE COOLING CIRCUIT THAT WILL MAKE A NOISE LIKE YOU HAVE. Doug
