Commercial Refrigeration Repair Near Me or Repair Yourself Checklist
Commercial refrigerators like any other commercial appliance, can malfunction and may need repair or maintenance. Even the most durable brands may need repair, and so when you face refrigeration system issues, you need to know a seasoned commercial refrigeration repair service that is always available to come to your rescue. You may also fix the problem yourself if it’s very minor. Here are the most common commercial refrigeration problems you may find, and a few tips on how to determine what’s wrong with your unit.
Refrigeration Power Issues
Is your refrigerator or refrigeration equipment not powering up? Is your bottle fridge not cooling? In the commercial restaurant business, fixing these issues in a timely manner is paramount. While you may not need an appliance repair company to perform proffessional refrigeration repair service on your unit. First make sure your unit doesn’t have a power switch that has been switched off. You should check to see if the power cord has been properly plugged in all the way to the outlet, as it may have been knocked out of place.
Remember: Most manufacturers warn users to never use extension cords for their commercial fridges, as use of the cords will void the warranty!
Refrigeration Temperature Problems
Are you experiencing problems with your refrigeration temperature? Is your commercial refrigerator not cooling? Having your commercial refrigerator keep food cold enough is a necessary process of the commercial appliance, and thus, you’ll need to address this problem quickly.
First, examine your refrigerator. Is it placed directly up against the wall? Your refrigerator needs to be placed slightly away from the wall to give it room to circulate air properly. Commercial refrigerators are made to withstand countless opening and closing operations, but sometimes the gasket can get worn down from wear and tear. Your door should close properly and seal completely so the unit can perform proper cooling processes.
You may also have a problem where the temperature gauge is offering an incorrect reading or is broken altogether. If this is the case, manufacturers have made the temperature gauge easy to replace. Your incorrect temperature read could be also be because of a blocked vent. Double check your temperature by using a thermometer to make sure to make sure the thermostat is indeed working.
The refrigeration compressor is used to keep your food cool, and if it’s not working, your unit won’t cool properly. True and other companies outline in their respective manuals how often you need to clean the compressor, but it’s typically every 90 days. Dirt, hair, grease and more may build up in the compressor and keep it from functioning. Verify that the compressor has been cleaned recently, and is working as it should.
Is you Refrigeration Unit Running Hot or Freezing Up?
Is ice collecting throughout the unit? You need to make sure that your evaporator fan is running correctly. You’ll need to first let the ice melt off the evaporator, if ice is present, by turning off your unit. The coils of the evaporator should be clean and you can locate cleaning tips in your model’s manual. Make sure that the drain lines are clear as well. You may notice that only a part of the evaporator coil is freezing up, which could indicate you have a low charge, so the pressures and sub-cooling may need to be checked either by you or a certified technician.
Refrigeration Lighting Issues
Sometimes you may have a minor problem, such as the lights aren’t working in your commercial refrigeration unit. If that’s the case, you need to take a look at the lights themselves. You may need to replace a bulb, make sure it’s verified and approved by your refrigerator’s manufacturer, or else you run the risk of burning out the electrical sockets for the lights. Always read the manual that accompanies your refrigerator to make sure you’re using the proper recommended repair options.
