How to fix your commercial refrigerator less often

Restaurants, caterers, grocery stores, school cafeterias, and many other businesses can all benefit from having a commercial refrigerator. Some people might even have them at home.

 If a commercial fridge breaks down, it won't be of any use anywhere. 

There are a few things every owner of a refrigerator should be aware of to keep it from running less well or, worse, breaking down completely. 

Knowing how your fridge usually works, having a regular cleaning schedule, and doing regular maintenance on your own as well as regularly scheduled maintenance by a professional will go a long way toward keeping your repair costs low.

Learn about your fridge

Most people probably don't know why the electrical system in a kitchen is important, but it is something you should think about if you want your commercial refrigerator to work at its best. 

Every piece of electrical equipment needs a certain voltage to work, and putting the wrong voltage into an appliance can do a lot of damage. Most of the time, this shouldn't be a problem, since you can't plug something into an outlet it wasn't made for. It is also best to put your refrigerator on its own circuit so that the breaker doesn't trip and cause your food to go bad.

Isn't it great to have a big fridge? It is, but you will need to think about the space you have when putting it somewhere. 

If you put it somewhere where the coils can't get enough air, the coils will get too hot and the compressor will stop working, which is something no one wants to happen. 

Check the clearance space your commercial refrigerator needs and make sure it is in the best place.

Look out for warning signs

You should also get used to how your refrigerator sounds when it is working right. Strange noises that aren't usually there, like humming, whirring, or clicking, are a dead giveaway that something isn't working right.

 It could be something easy that you can fix yourself, like gunk that has built up, or it could be something more serious that you need a professional to look at. 

It is never a good idea to ignore noises like that, because your refrigerator could break down if you do. It is much easier to fix a small problem right away than to let it get worse and then have to pay a lot of money to fix it.

The refrigerator is a piece of equipment that is used to keep food cool. 

It shouldn't be a surprise that a temperature that isn't steady or is too high can be a sign of trouble. You should look out for these things and have a professional figure out what's wrong and fix it right away.

Cleaning and Maintenance: Know the Warning Signs

Equipment used to store food should be cleaned often and well, but there are some less obvious places that can cause problems if not taken care of. 

Routinely, the drainage system should be cleaned and clogs should be removed.

You should also wipe down the gaskets with soapy water and look for any tears or rips. 

Wipe down the fan blades as well, but don't get any water in the motor. 

To get grease off of condenser coils, they should be cleaned with a nylon brush or an approved cleaning solution.

You will be able to take care of some of your fridge's maintenance yourself. 

You should take care of things like making sure the doors are in the right place and replacing the lights inside the fridge when they burn out.

Some things will need to be fixed or fixed up by an expert, like Touchstone Commercial Services. 

About twice a year, you should have your fridge serviced as part of a regular plan. 

This will keep your equipment running well for a longer time and make it last longer.
