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
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.
