Mine works just fine to, and most likely the least elaborate one on the forum.

Just ask my DW We don't seem to get a lot of condensation, but when you stuff the drip tray full of ham, you end up with water in the bottom of the fridge.

During our PDI, the tech went on and on about his little battery powered fan he used in his RV fridge. But he never told us where to get one. Thanks for that link - think I'll get one.

This should maintain the marital bliss - DW can continue using the meat tray, and I won't be yelling about the fridge being full of water because the drain is blocked with bologna.

Just make sure your OK with losing ceiling height space. I think a better solution is to mount it on the fins, but to each his own.

I think you will be disappointed with the battery powered one which requires replacing batteries all too often. IMO, just get a ball brg computer fan and wire it into 12 volts.

Unfortunately I have to agree!

It is about 2 inches tall by 23 inches long by 4 inches deep. It sits all the way back against the fins. We have not noticed it cutting down on the space. The fans are on the bottom and blow the air out the back - against the fins.

I like it - I did pay more that is for sure. I was going to ask - is it powered from the interior light? I noticed a wire in the posts. As I was doing my literal dismantle I found that the hot wire on the fan stays hot - the switch breaks the ground lead.

Yes, the fans are powered from the 12v power in the control board. The switch breaks the 12v lead as the ground is thru the frig fins.

We turn it and the 2 fans inside and the 2 fans outside on at least 12-24 hrs before loading it. Have monitor in the freezer and the frig compartment that will tell us when the freezer gets below freezing and the frig to at least 40. Unit usually holds the freezer at 0 and the frig at 33-34.
