Run a fan in a closed box for an extended period of time and you'll find out!

It is to let cool air into the box so that the fan does not get too hot. It could catch fire!

Yep yep I don't like fire. It is a good thing I put those holes in it to. One of my kids got a hold of it turned it up the resistance and left it on. It was over hot when I smelled it from the other room last night.
