Fridge ventilation

The ventilation in the fridge compressor compartment is not enough to remove the heath the compressor generates. As a first stage to improve it we drilled some holes in the cover board inside the locker where you access the compressor. We can't really tell how much the holes ventilate the compressor box but you can feel the heat coming out. This solution requires that you keep the lockers door open most of the time. We haven't yet decided if we are going to drill couple of holes on the locker door...
 

1. Remove the cover and measure the height and width of the hole or the space between the frame and the screw holes in order to decide where to put the first row of holes.
 

2. Drill as many holes you think is necessary. We used 20 mm drill for the holes and 20 mm between each hole to create a zigzag pattern.

3. The  lid back in place. We will probably drill more holes later on in order to improve the ventilation.
