Jim,
Thanks again for being the first one to blaze the trail for us with the Fridge Fix fan assembly.
Mark

Hi Jim,
I am guessing you have been cooling down for three hours?
Are the inside fans running?
Is your weather cool and wet which may effect your test trial?
What is your fridge control set at?
Are you cooling on electric?

I know I am asking a lot of questions but trying to learn if the Fridge Fix has improved your performance.

Just came in for the night, it is currently 74 here with 78% humidity. The freezer is 14, the door is 52 and the rear of refer is 48. I'm on a/c and the fans and lights are on and running, they can not be heard outside the unit, but my hearing is not as good as it used to be. I'll report back in am. The setting is on #3, in the middle.

It is 37 on the door and 34 in the back of the refer with 7 in the freezer. Not bad for little over 12 hours on setting #3. Outside dropped to 69 with 75% humidity…..tomorrows forecast……stay tuned.

I'm thinking I'm getting on setting #3 what I used to get on setting #4. I may turn it back to setting #2 and monitor the range tonight.

It has now been 24 yours, it is holding 40/4 with sensor on door and in freezer, low was 36/1, current temperature is 87 outside and 80 inside unit, temperature reading inside top shelf rear is 32 degrees. So it has not exceeded 40 on the door for past 24 hours while on setting #3 and 120v.
I'd say the fans work by allowing a lower setting in 85 plus degree sunny days.

Good work cpacharley2008, I'm glad the fans are making a difference. I still wonder if the refrigerators temperature would be effected by direct sun on the drivers side refrigerator access panels.
