Signs That Your Commercial Refrigerator Is About to Break Down

Posted by | 19-03-2020

An important, in fact essential, part of many businesses is the commercial refrigerator. Coolers and refrigerators are found in hotel gift shops, convenience stores, supermarkets, restaurants, and more to keep beverages and food cold for employees and customers. Lost revenue due to spoiled foods or melted frozen foods can be the result when a unit breaks down. That's going to mean money! Envision thousands of dollars in repairs (or the purchase of a new unit), your business grinding to a halt, and untold stock being wasted. To put off a total refrigeration breakdown, at least for the foreseeable future, we are going to suggest a few steps.

Ultimately, we’d love you to consider purchasing a True refrigeration or freezer unit from Ancaster Food Service. Our products offer high-quality dependability at a price you can afford.

Meanwhile, let's see how to extend the life of your current commercial refrigerator.

Top Running Condition

Your commercial refrigerator is likely to run better, longer, if you keep it in good condition. That goes for a lot of things, in fact! Certain malfunctions can be detected, if you know what to look for.

  • A main component may have broken down or you may have a drainage line leak if, outside or inside your cooler, you notice puddles.
  • There might be a problem with the thermometer, fan, evaporator, or condenser if you detect fluctuating temperatures.
  • A broken door seal or other failing parts could be evidenced by the failure to reach a certain temp.

Even if a problem seems minor, a person with lots of commercial refrigeration knowledge (i.e., a mechanic) should inspect your cooler as soon trouble is detected.

Where Is Your Refrigerator Located?

Believe it or not, it's important where you put your fridge. Compressors and other key components could threaten break down if your refrigerator isn't able to cool efficiently and effectively because fans or vents are obstructed. We’re talking about a lot of money there! Move that refrigerator away from the wall.

Additionally, overloading can lead to problems and the failure of crucial components because it might be too difficult for the refrigerator to cool off and maintain proper temperature. It's just working too hard.

Servicing Your Commercial Fridge

Just like automobiles, a professional should perform regular maintenance on your commercial refrigerator to increase its lifespan. That goes for freezers, display fridges, walk-in coolers, etc. Yes, you will frequently want to perform your own inspections, but several times a year, a professional should do their own inspection. They will make sure that equipment is functioning properly, check for and repair leaks, refill refrigerant, clean condenser coils and evaporators, etc. Make sure that your experienced professional is licensed.
