Default fridge fan

Has anyone tried the little battery powered fridge fan that you place on the bottom shelf? They are purported to increase the cooling circulation in your fridge and eliminate extra cold areas that tend to freeze things like canned drinks etc. Do they work?

I actually installed a solar fan behind my fridge took about an hour to install and made a big difference on how cold my fidg stays now

Thx cueball. How much cost that, and did it take much to hook up? My problem is not keeping the fridge cool, but more evenly distributing the cool temp. Some spots in the fridge are too cold.

Default fridge fan

thx cueball. sorry I do not have a smart bro who would help me remove the fridge and hook up. sounds like getting ready for a space shot to me. I found a small battery powered version that sits on the bottom shelf and does a great job of moving cold air around. battery life is not great, but considering what you were challenged with, methinks I will buy many batteries.

I think you guys are talking about 2 different things. The fan that queball is talking about moves air across the refrigerator condensor improving the heat exchange to the outside and improving the cooling ability. The fan that fbman is talking about circulates the air inside the fridge so you don't get cold or warm spots. I've heard these are available pretty cheap and do a good job. A friend has one and claims it works great but I've not tried one myself so I can't for sure. Camping World has a couple of them for less than $20 but from the reviews they are kinda cheap quality and break easily.

Yeah mine just helps move the heat out of the condensor. My fridge always got warm durning the day in the summer and would get cold at night but with the fan helping pull the heat out.
