Refrigerator fan

Has anyone installed one of the Fridge-Fix fans inside of their refrigerator? I have read about the benefits of installing this fan on their web site and it looks like a good idea. We are going to camp for a week this year in August and I thought that it would be a good thing to help eliminate the possibility of ice build up on the fins in the fridge and also help to keep the temperature more even in the fridge.

I got one 3 years ago on ebay for < $15 delivered, has two fans on a plate with an alligator clip to attach to fin, works AWESOME!
Such a small, cheap little thing and it works so well, it really did even out cold/warm spots in fridge and we also had to lower temp switch down to 2 or 3 from normally being on 4 or 5 during summer due to waking up one morning to find the eggs frozen!

I ran a hard wire down the fridge drain line to the power panel and pulled the 12V + from the power supply to fridge control board, fans pulls < 1/10 Amp, no worries. The alligator clip provides the ground so to shut it off you just unclip it from fins.

I have already checked the forum by searching fridge fans, what I am asking here is if anyone has bought and installed the Fridge-Fix brand fan and if so are they satisfied with it. I have read about the battery powered fans that you set in the fridge, I have read about the cheap Ebay fans with no on off switch or fusing, I have read about how some people have just used a computer fan and installed it. I am not looking for any of these.. just the Fridge-Fix one.

Sorry, I guess I did not notice the actual brand "Fridge Fix".
Seems very nice, nice housing, looks like 3 fans.? Cool blue LED's

So basically, it is a cheap ebay fan all dressed up....

Refrigerator fan

That product has been discussed here on the forums. See this thread Refrigerator Fan - Who'd have thought?

Thanks itat, that was what I was looking for. I somehow missed that post when I did a search here on the forum. Read a lot of other posts but did not catch that one for some reason. Again, thanks.

No, actually its not. I installed one of these. The quality of the fans are way better. It works really well. I got the one without the lights and two fans and a switch. Very quiet and looks better than the cheap e-bay stuff. Remember, you get what you pay for.

I'm sure the blue lights are cool and the power/amp draw is minimal but they are on as long as the fan is running.
I would run something like this.

EverCool EC-6010 60 x 10 mm Flat Fan, 3-Pin, Ball Bearing, 4000RPM. OEM- Directron.com the Best Online Computer Store - Buy with Discount Prices from Houston Texas

Just my $4 worth.
