NOTE:- This is a smaller fan than the external one also Nanoflux magnetic levitation bearing Jaycar CAT. NO. YX2582.
Both fans are virtually silent in operation you wouldn't know they are running. Wires are fed in via the drain hose.

Attach to the top of the fridge with "3M" brand hooks. It's mounted diagonally to blow
from left to right across the evaporator fins as the LHS on my fridge is the side that
used to ice up. Now its always a constant internal temperature and doesn't ice up at all.
12v to run both fans is available at the back of the fridge but be careful to observe
polarity or fans will not operate.
