What you donít see... Danby Designer fridge

Had too warm of temp , so every search said it had a mechanical thermostat. I could find any literature saying where so Just decided to remove it, clean all around it too.
Removal was pretty interesting. I could see the front ďtĒ bracket under the leg.. I assumed there was a ďraise up, slip off type mount in back. After multiple attempts, it finally came off. What I found was comical and about as unprofessional design I could have imagined.
A ďLĒ bracket with a sheet metal screw into the back of the fridge.
To remove it, requires ripping the screw out the back ...
My first thought was how to put screw back .. then I realized this bracket was installed BEFORE .. the bed was built. All the panels surrounding this was permanent... so there was no way to install after.

I moved the foot bracket over a little, now I have room to install a couple of shelves to hold foil and wrap on left side of fridge.

Itís apparent , this is a case of ď let someone else deal with it

Btw ... the thermostat is top back right, set to low( hence my 48deg temp) and not accessible. Click image for larger version

On the 29M floor plans there is a removable panel in the bedroom that allows access to the rear thermostat. The Thor salesman's trainer show it to all that attended the 2018 Spring Thor rally. That was in a 2017 Hurricane so things may have changed
