That's what I did. Use a 3" dia brushless fan, draws .3 amps, connected with the gas valve. Works great, noticeable difference in hot weather. Inside fan runs all the time though, smaller brushless fan, draws .1 amps.

You could also use a 12v relay in the fridge circuit and get the power for the fan from the battery or the original fan power source.
