Default Refrigerator fan inside.

Are there any inexpensive options for circulating air inside the fridge? Not paying 39$ for the blue battery operated with d cell unit!

I had a larger "computer fan" in there, but it was too much.


I salvaged a small fan about 1.5 x 1.5" from an old satellite TV tuner and use that


I ran power into the fridge alongside the drain tube from the condensation pan.
The switch ( and fuse) are behind my lower fridge cover

We struggled w/ our fridge sense day one. Added a fan unit on the back(exterior) side. That helped some. We have now added a fin fan on the interior. Ended up going w/ the one in the link below (~$50). It’s not fancy but during a recent 3 week trip, between the 2 fans we saw a 10-15F drop in the max temp swing plus No spoiled food and no frost build up in the fridge itself. We did get frost in the freezer but it appeared to be much less than previous trips.

FYI - we had been using 2 battery powered fans inside before we had the fin fan installed.

Very happy w/ the results.

That Camco thing is 100% useless. I have 2 rechargeable fans that I switch out, once in the morning, afternoon and before bed. Last for about 6 hours on low. One charging in my dash lighter and the other in the fridge. Been doing this for years. 100 plus degrees and ice cold beverages and solid frozen ice cream. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1
