I bought one off ebay and it really made a difference. I just cliped it to fin and let it hang in front of fins and have not had any issue of it falling. And no it is not resting on the shelf.

I bought the one from ebay. Looked like a simple, well thought out unit. Tried it in my fridge and it dropped the temp only 1 degree.

Waste of money for me!!

i deployed my fan this fall and found a 10 or 15 degree drop in tempature. I ended up with a fridge that was near freezing if the door wasn't opened very often. you may find that there is a greater change in the summer months or longer trial.

not sure what time period you used to quantify that one degree drop. you have to give it time to work, just as you have to give the fridge plenty of time to cool. you might be misunderstanding the purpose of the fan. it is meant to limit the buildup of frost on the fins by circulating air inside the fridge. in doing that i think it makes the fridge more efficient.

i mounted my fan toward the top of the fridge, clipping the ground clip to the very top of the fins and using a little 29 cent home depot clip clipped to the fin below the fan base to hold it in place.

Newegg.com - MASSCOOL 4B02S4 Hard Disk Cooler
I took the above link and built my buddy one Saturday and I will not do it again.
Fan $7.80 from above link, fan + tax + shipping. A package of alligator clips Wally World $1.50, 18 gauge wire 15 ft roll $4.47 Lowe's, picture hanger wire $2.97 roll (its floppy) wally world.
Ive spent $16.74 plus used a better part of my Saturday putting the dang thing together. $17.59 on Ebay and I don't put it together. Saved a Grand Total of $0.86 !!!!
Did I mention running to wally world / lowes on $3.25 gal of gas. Opec S**KS!!!!!

The fellow on ebay also has a good reputation for resolving any problems you may encounter. It's a deal if you already have the other items needed already at home but if not then as you stated the costs add up. Thanks for all the info you provided.

you could easily cut the cost of the fan itself. I suspect I could find a handful of similar fans in the half dozen old 'puters I have in the basement. LOL, I still have a 386DX down there. you could visit a shop that puts puters together, they'd probably have the fans and would probably have all the other parts you need on the shelf.
