Are you experiencing any of these problems? It might be time to set up a maintenance agreement or call a certified technician for walk-in cooler and commercial freezer repair & installation today.
Temperature Too High
The first indication of a refrigeration problem is the temperature. When temperatures start to go up, you’ll notice food spoiling quickly, and run the risk of serving that food to customers.
You’ll want to ensure your thermometers are reading the correct temperature, but then call a commercial refrigeration repair service to check the motor and other parts of the system. This could be something as simple as clogged lines, or it could be evidence of a condenser failing.
Clogged Drain Line
Regular maintenance can prevent many problems before they happen, and the most common of these is the clogged drain line. The drain line helps with defrosting and keeps the refrigerator at the proper temperature. When the water cannot drain or defrost properly, the machine can ice up or run less efficiently.
Each manufacturer will recommend a maintenance plan for the refrigerator compressor to be cleaned, sometimes as often as every 90 days. When dust, grease, hair or dirt build up in the compressor, it becomes too hot to keep your refrigerator cool!
Your home refrigerator or freezer makes different sounds than your commercial equipment, but too many noises can indicate a larger problem. Typically, these will be mechanical problems, and a technician will help you find the source of the problem in order to repair it.
Iced-Over Evaporator Fan
The first sign that your evaporator fan needs repair is ice buildup in the freezer. First, you’ll need to turn off the unit and melt the ice on the evaporator itself, then clean off the fan and ensure drain lines are not clogged.
