Red wires are from fans to show you my "switched power source"

90 degree day with all the humidity you could handle.
Fridge was on 8 hours.

Most Radio Shacks stock these kinds of 12VDC cooling fans in a variety of sizes.

You can also get these kinds of units designed for supplemental Laptop cooling.

There was a problem with the fan being noisy when the fridge was on but it has been taken care of on later models. It created a high frequency whine that could be heard when sitting or in the kitchen. Adding an auxiliary fan is an idea especially when on high temperatures.

That the same problem many had. The computer fans are very quite, many on this site have used them. They help with the cooling also.

I even stuck an additional one in my converter to help keep it cool.
With a manual switch of course.

Turbs, I'm impressed my man, nice job. To be honest, I never really saw a need to add fans to the frig, but then again I have not ever had an issue with it. I can see where this would eliminate any chance of that happening. Thanks for the info.
