I don't remember where I saw it, but on one of the saltwater forums a guy ran a small coil of tubing through the ice maker of his fridge. He had a small power head in the tank to push water through the tube which just drained back into the tank. It wasn't meant to be a permanent thing, just for the height of summer. I have seen people do similar things with the little office/dorm room fridges.

The guy didn use copper tubing due to the copper sensativity of his inverts, but for a fish only freshwater tank it would likely work. it was also an open loop. the powerhead sucked up the water directly from the tank and the other end of the loop just poured back into the main tank. So only a portion of the tank water was going through the fridge. It brought the temp down something like 5-6 degrees at full tilt.
