Noctua industrial fan is very useful (ghetto PC fan use inside)

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Not exactly a PC, my Maytag MTB2156GEB fridge apparently is notorious for failing panasonic fans. I noticed a few days ago the freezer became an ice palace and then the defrost cycle would kick in hard for hours and the floor would be all wet. At the same time the beer cabinet would be getting very warm. I found the condenser fan in the back of the freezer was dying, a flick with a knife on the blades got it running for a few hours at a time. It finally died completely on Friday night, and nowhere local sells a replacement. I first got some ice and filled some coolers with the food so they wouldn't go bad until my replacement arrives next week, but then I had a better idea.

I checked out the bracket and the fan hole and realized a 120mm fan would fit perfectly on there, so I decided to put a fan I got to work. I have a pair of Notcua Industrial 2000RPM IP67 fans that are supposedly mostly waterproof and work in a vast range of temperatures. I got out a crappy power supply and some fan extensions and zip tied the little bugger to the bracket. Going on day 3 and the fan is frosted over but still going strong! tongue.gif
