I used to use a cooling fan over the cooling mechanisms on the outside of the fridge (in the back). I am not convinced that it did much. The main thing back there that seemed important was that the vent at the roof line was clear and free.
Lately I have used a battery powered fan in the bottom of my fridge when I first turn it on. I find that it cools the fridge down much quicker than if the fan is not on. Then when my fridge reaches 40 F I turn the fan off and the fridge remains at 40 F unless it is very hot out (~85-90F) then the fridge gets a little warmer but no more that 50 F. At night it goes back down to 40 F as it cools down some outside.
