Refrigerator issue 3950

I just recently had to replace both fridge fans and limit switch. While removing the upper outside plastic panel I noticed a piece of flashing installed to limit the air volume and I assume director more air onto the cooling fins. Some people say they have removed it others are not sure they even have it any suggestions?

I suggest not removing it. On my past two rigs, I have installed a piece to perform this functionwith great results Iin Iincreased cooling efficiency.

Agree with Donzinger...not a good idea to remove. In the past we had a motorhome where the manufacturer forgot to put this flashing in and the frig would not cool down properly.

The intent isn't to limit the airflow, but to direct the airflow that there is across the fins.
