    your better of hooking the vents to an external sensor so they open when then temp is down at a certain level. also use an toilet exuast fan and turn it around so air comes in and set that to an external sensor so it turns on when needed to. a great way to save electricity.

    note most toilet exausts fans have dampners so they will open on when on.

    you could really use the stc1000 if you wanted.

    The ducted air vent/extractor units now use in bathrooms to vent are great for sucking hot air from an internal fridge.

    The trick is to remove as much warm/hot air as possible.

    If you can remove the warm air from behind your fridge, the better and more eff it will run.
