my fridge fans..

My little cube fan died. I really didn't feel like buying another for $16 just to have it die a year later. I built this for about $10 plus my time. It's held in place via velcro and ground clips. I had the wire, tin and fuse holder. Power is fed from the light switch. They only use about .28 A total. I was going to put a rheostat in the circuit to reduce fan speed, but determined it isn't necessary.

The only change I may make is to install fan guards to prevent anything from and jamming the fans.

What a beautiful piece of work!!!!!!!!!!!!
Do the twin fans give you a big improvement in performance? I already replaced the fan set-up behind my fridge, and if a fan in the fridge compartment itself makes for a big improvement in efficiency, maybe I should do that, too? What do you think???

so far it's as good as my house fridge. keeps the temp around 35'. cools quickly. I can't hear the fans with the door close.

I want to do the coil fans next. I built a solar panel powered unit, self contained, but haven't installed it yet.
