Customer Question

we just bought a used prod--2015. I turned on the refrigerator. All the lights work but it's not making any noise. Is this normal?

JA: Are you fixing your RV yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: what do you mean fixing?
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: I just turned the refrigerator on. The only question is whether or not it should make a noise. I don't hear a fan or motor or anything.

Hi my name is Robert....

YES it is totally normal, a RV fridge does not have any moving parts like a fridge you will find in a house, if it is working the flue canister will heat up via a heating element or the flame, it is very quiet. It should take about 4 hours for the box to cool off....

Hope this helps, IF you have more questions or concerns please feel free to contact me....
