Doing a Side by Side build for a friend. The fridge is a Maytag. I made my own last year but didnt take any build pics, so I decided to follow this one. Today I installed the top and bottom fans to be used as a push pull system for cold air from the freezer portion. Normally I only use the top fan if lagering (heater if fermenting at warmer temps) but will use both to cold crash or just change temps faster.

More of the bottom fan. They are 120v AC fans. I and using laundry duct louvers to help keep the 2 sides separate. The last pic is just a screw driver holding the louvers open.

Here is the top fan being installed. It will be below the control housing on the fridge side. I mounted the fan in the wall here because I didnt want to take up room in the freezer side, plus I still have to add a piece of ductwork to pull the cold air from behind the rear wall (just like the original system did). The bottom fan just sticks into the refridge side and will be below the shelf, so I didnt care how far out it stuck.
