Lightbulb Refrigerator mod

This refrigerator mod will help keep your condenser much cleaner, especially if you have any fury friends that travel with you, and so you do not have to take the time needed to try and get all of the crap that gets caught in the refrigerators condenser.
I use the same material that is used in house A/C intakes. When I change them, I change out the refrigerator one at the same time.
Cut a strip about 2” wider then the plastic vent cover at the bottom of the fridge.
Most of the excess is for the bottom half.
Take your time and cut one slit at a time and work your way across the vent cover. I also took some smaller pieces of the same material and shoved them in front of the wheels on both sides. This is so all of the air that is pulled by the fan is filtered. And the bulk of and dirt or fur is caught in the filter.
The pictures below are from the front and back side of the vent cover.

This is even easier than turning the 'Fridge into a "Swamp Cooler".
