 I recently purchased an Eppendof 5402 and wanted to spin in the cold. 
 In stead of setting the microfuge in the cold room at the end of the 
 hall, I went to the local hardware store and got an adaptor to put in 
 the refrigerator which would convert the light socket into an 
 electric outlet.  Then I got an adaptor which turned a three prong 
 plug into a two prong plug and plugged the eppendorf into the 
 refrigerator light socket.
 
 Everything went great . . .  until I closed the door and the light 
 went out
 
 
 since then I removed the switch which turns off the light when the 
 refrigerator door closes and now I can spin in the cold without 
 purchasing a refrigerated model.
