Ok nice... Cooling the compressor is a waste of time tho - refrigeration compressors get their cooling internally from the refrigerant - they feel hot because the high pressure side carries the heat of compressing the refrigerant gas. Same goes for the discharge pipe before it goes to the condensing coil and this heat is removed and the refrigerant condensed to a liquid. Rest assured that where the electric motor is inside the compressor housing, gets cooled from the returning cold side refrigerant.

That fan would do better blowing more over that coil rather than the compressor.

Do you have an inlet somewhere to draw fresh air from?

And yes, if you have a cavity around the cooled space, insulating it with foam will make it more efficient.

It's a 1-minute job to move the fan...done. And the cold air comes in via a vent on the lower section of the access door. Win, win.

Update:
Have since added insulation and fridge IS already working less
