Fan on my wine fridge is buzzing, so I'm replacing it with a CPU or case fan off newegg.
Should the replacement fan be rated at more than
.13A, or less? I suppose the fridge probably puts less than
.13A in, but the replacement fan should have a max of at least
.13A. Would it be bad to get a fan with an even higher max, say
Edit: Existing fan specs are as follows (from this pdf) and the sticker on the fan.
Model: RDL8020S Bearing System: Sleeve Rated Voltage: 12VDC Operation Voltage: 6~13.8 Rated Current: 0.13A Rated Speed: 2,500 RPM Air Flow: 27.6 CFM Air Pressure: 1.7 mmH2O Noise Level: 30 dBA Dimensions: 80mm x 80mm x 20mm
I found several fans that have lower amperage, but I'm reluctant to buy them. Finally I found this fan which has
.13A rating, but I suppose that means it would always be spinning at its highest setting.
P.S. I realize that almost all computer fans have 3 pins not the 2 that this one has. I figure I'll just splice red to red, black to black, and snip off the yellow one, which is just throttle control anyway.
