Just pulled fridge. There should be zero clearance around fridge and no air space above it, to create the chimney effect in the back. The top plywood is not far enough back nor low enough.
The fan from factory is a 50 CFM unit. I will be adding two 118 CFM units and Turbs controller.

Used air duct mastic to seal box, used Roxul Safe N Sound above and both sides of fridge.

107 degrees behind fridge. Full sun on that side and it's 98 degrees outside.

Now just waiting for fridge to cool!

Turbs, I can see wiring in the 2 fans to increase the airflow..but why the controller? Why not just let them run constantly.

It was also nice to be able to monitor what the temp is in the chase. Mine was 107 after the new fans with 98 outside temp in full sun.

One tip, when you're programming it, exit the menu by hitting the power button or it won't save the settings.

I didn't get a picture of the sides of the box but I added Roxul to both sides front to back top to bottom. My frig is zero clearance on the sides and Roxul doesn't burn. Sides of my cabinets are cooler now.

Thanks for the tip on the controller.. What temperature are you having it turning fans on ? I imagine the controller turns fan off under the same temperature..

It's set for 70 right now but that's to play around with it. Haven't decided yet where to leave it.

The way it sets is that you set your temp, then you set how many degrees (+5, +10, etc) above (or below if using the heat relay) and then it runs until your originally set temp.

Gonna watch fridge Temps and see what the corresponding chase temp is and go from there.
