wiring computer fans for refrigeration

Postby catalacmarc » Sat Oct 08, 2016 10:19 pm

Friends, need to get more air to the adler barbour cold machine in my newly purchased pdq. The compressor has a Danfoss 4 pin control box. Have some small fans ready to install, any ideas for wiring the fans to the compressor fan motor?

Eureka, the Danfoss module seems to have space for two push on connectors that I think can power the auxiliary fans. Now the only issue is figuring out how and where to mount the fans. Anybody know the manufactures revommendation? Thanks

Success, froze a glass of water. Installed 3 small 12V computer fans floor level blowing into the top half of the compressor. Will make a louvred cover for them. Each fan draws .33 amps. Marc

An additional note, also placed a cover between the top of the compresdor coil and the inside of the locker.
