I have an Engles fridge made in the early nineties that pre-dates the model that incorporates a computer type fan to circulate the air around the compressor.
Having obtained such a fan, which is rated at about .15 amps, I attempted to locate points to where I could connect the wires (to no avail).
Has anyone succeeded in such a venture so that the fan only operates when the fridge switches on, or should I take the other alterative and break in where the 12 volts plug enters the fridge and manually switch it?Alternatively is it worth bothering with doing this at all?
Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Hi Justin
I have the same fridge and just joined the wires into the 12 volt lead. The fan neatly fits on the side of the fridge where the slots are, the draw is minimal, but it sure makes the fridge work better

find the two wires that supply power to the fridge, the positive and negative, and connect the negative of the fan direct to the negative of the power in. next, find the switched positve, the positve that leaves the thermostat and heads to the compressor, and connect to that. The fan will than cycle with the compressor. If possible, check your connectors first and try and get a similar style piggyback or double type that will match the original, then you are not unnecessarily breaking into wires. if you are not sure, ask a mate who can understand.
