PS How do you turn it off "manually" except by pulling a wire off?
On our new trailer the fan runs easily when hot outside. If your's runs when the switch is off that likely indicates the compartment is hot; refrigerator is probably working normally.
Your fan is trying to cool the compartment. You can help it by propping open the fridge vent door(s) to allow more air, and perhaps park it so the sun is not on it directly (that makes a BIG difference).
I did cut a wire to the switch and put a little inline lamp switch there so we can shut it off at night, but I do have the vent doors propped open when I do that.
There is a chance the compartment can get dangerously hot if not ventilated, a fire risk.
