To Cool Or Not To Cool? That's The Question.

I have been using two coolers since I became a truck driver. One of them is Igloo 28qts Iceless Cooler. I was glad that I bought this baby until the major cooling fan (the one under the outer cover) just went out. It's built by XINRUILIAN, the model number is RDH1225S, but the same number can usually lead to those cooling fans for computer cases. Instead, it's more like a turbine fan, blades are on the other side of the motor.(I'll post some photos later). Anyway, I am having a hard time finding one of those. I even tried giving Igloo a call, but the C/S dept saying that they don't have any electronic parts for sale. If customer wanted to change some parts inside their cooler, they should CONSULT AN ELECTRICIAN?!! Do you have any ideas where to find them?

Another iceless cooler I got is a Coleman 40qt powerchill thermoelectric. This cooler is a workhorse, the cooling fans are easy to access also. Only flaw is that the fuse blows from time to time. And yes, I tends to keep plugging the cigarette lighter in at all time. But comparing to the hard-to-find cooling fan, changing fuse ( or changing the spring or even the whole lighter plug) can be no brainer.

Amazon has them but though its the same model number it looks different. Maybe you could just swap the new motor to your fan body? Amazon fan

You have the voltage specs - printed on the fan. Measure between opposite bolt holes, say ... 4". Get the metric size too, just in case.

Look for a fan by specifications. Also check web stores like Newegg and Grainger. You'll have better luck.

Exactly Phil! It's pretty hard to find the same looking fan. And I doubt the idea of swapping motor, coz the failed fan has a relatively large motor body than the computer cases tho.

Errol, I came from China so I know the metric sizes pretty well. The screw specs are 92mm apart, and the blade is 120mm. But I still couldn't find the same fan in either site you mentioned. Thank you anyway!

Blows out the side, as you need. They have some other side blowers.
