Have you tried putting paper on lower vent to see if youve got enough flow to hold it?

How many cfm is the fans?

Can you feel hot air coming out of upper vent?

Did not do paper test. As far as cfm. I'll check tomorrow. I forget. Heat coming out top yes. I had bug screens on the vents. I took them off, just to see if that restricted flow some. I did not turn the fans on inside the fridge. I had 40 degrees tops. So I thought I would turn them on. Heres the disturbing part. It went up to 48. I shut them off for curiosity. Half hour later it went back to 40.

The insulation on the sides of the fridge.... doesn't cover the sides of the cabinet. Wonder if I should replace with foam board and run it all the way to the exterior wall. Not to help the fridge as much as insulate inside rig from heat.

I will be pulling my fridge this weekend. I wonder if someone left a space above the fridge. I read that traps heat. Back of fridge should be vertical all the way up.
