RE: Fridge Defend ARP Device

I have a question on this: How do you wire up the internal fans? The blue wire provides the power(12volt) but how did you ground it? I grounded mine to the black wire on the light, but I am concerned that I may have done this incorrectly. Since I did this, ironically, the thermistor is reading erratically at times. I changed the thermistor but it still is reading odd. It may have nothing to do with the fan install, but it is odd that this behavior with the thermistor began when I connected up the internal fans. I plan to disconnect the internal fans and see if the problem persists. The problem I am experiencing is the thermistor after a few days will read very low (11 degrees) even though it is 50 in the frig, and therefore the cooling unit not being triggered to come on and cool the frig. Happens after a few days of running. Like I said, it may have nothing to do with this ARP device, but it is a strange situation. How did you wire up the internal fans on your install? I use the fan output (12 volt +)from the ARP for both my external and internal fans. It is just a 12 volt positive output. The ground is the same. This allows my internal fans to only run when the external fans are required. Not sure this is the best approach but seems to work well. yes, I agree. That is what I did too, but where did you connect up the black wires of the internal fans? The black wires have a a clip that is connected to the fins in the fridge. Any place that is grounded will work as the ground is the same anyplace.

RE: Fridge Defend ARP Device

I installed mine a few years ago on a Norcold with the Amish upgrade. Really pretty easy but as someone else said the placement of the fan sensor was the hardest part. I used velco to attach the controller to the box around the control board for the fridge and that has worked well. Yes there is alot of disjointed data in the manuals for this device but it seems to work well. Just have to filter out information that does not apply to your install.

RE: Norcold frig connection for 12v lead for fan

I ran a small wire through the condensation tube to the back of the fridge. Connect to the wire feeding the fridge with a small(1 amp) or so in the wire.
