You should just find an old wall wort ( those power supplies used for everything these days that plug into the wall and have a small cord that plugs into the calculator or what ever it was for). Find one that shows 12 v dc and get a 12 v dc computer fan. The power cord has two wires, hook the wires to the fan and if it runs backwards reverse them and you are good to go. The small wire will fit through the door gasket and not cause much if any leakage. You can probably run a few of them off the same cord.
