have heard that running a magnetic stir plate inside a refrigerator is
common practice. Usually, the liquid is aqueous and the flask covered..
It is not battery operated unit and the refrigerator door is closed on
the electrical cord. This looks like an accident ready to happen to me.
this practice be continued? Is there any fire code violation involved?
Are there any guidelines for running electrical equipment inside a
refrigerator or a for that matter a cold small cold room?
