i think she bought this one off of ebay but not saying other designs are or are not better. I have looked at a bunch and they are all pretty similar. i jst like this one as it was fused and has a switch. Dometic Refrigerator Deluxe Fan to Increase Cooling Inside with Metal Grill | eBay

I purchased this fan and did NOT notice any difference I temperature!

I replaced the fridge bulb with a FFF LED replacement. Nicer light and compensates for the additional current the fan draws.

Fridge fan

Purchased and installed (2) Corsair 140mm quiet fans and a hand/off/auto (HOA) switch. I removed the existing fan and installed the switch on the 12volt supply. Also I wired in the existing thermal switch to the "auto" side of the switch and a direct wire for the "hand" side of the switch.

The fans are much quieter than the existing and move more air. I haven't had time to check the cool down timeframe but the freezer was noticeably cold in less than 30 minutes. I will post a more thorough follow up when I get a chance to test it.

Fans work great if positioned just above the burner and blow across the entire back of the refrigerator.

Ok good to know. I left enough slack in the wiring to play with the position. I've installed the replacement fans in the general vicinity of the existing fan location but I'm not sure it was installed in the best location.
