A hot, muggy home can make your space incredibly uncomfortable, which is why I have always focused on maintaining my air conditioning system. Unfortunately, I still run into problems from time to time and I am sure that all of you do, which is one of the reasons I decided to build this website. Check out these posts for more information about keeping your system working beautifully, even if you aren't naturally good at fixing things. You never know, making the right changes could dramatically improve your summertime experience.
If you are a restaurant owner, your commercial refrigerator is part of your livelihood. If you can't keep the food you are going to serve at the right temperature, it's going to come out tasting funky or might be unsafe to serve to your customers at all. So it's no surprise then that most restaurant owners can go into a panic when their commercial fridge suddenly starts acting up or goes down completely. If you believe your commercial fridge might be in need of appliance repair, here are some tips to keep in mind.
Make Sure It Has Room to Breathe
Is your commercial fridge not keeping its contents at the right temperature? If the fridge is technically running but not doing its job effectively, you might want to make sure it has the room it needs to get the job done. Specifically, the coils at the back of the fridge need room to breathe. Commercial-grade coils can be quite large and you will need to make sure that air can circulate around them in order for the fridge to intake said air and cool it properly. Sometimes restaurants get busy and someone will shove a box of something in a location it doesn't belong like right next to the fridge. Remove any obstructions and pull the fridge out from the wall more if needed.
Make Sure the Coils and the Seal Are Clean
While you are paying attention to what's going on with the coils, make sure the fridge Is properly clean inside and out. The coils should be of dust and debris and the seal at the front of the fridge should be airtight. Commercial kitchens can get messy sometimes when it's Friday night and the dining room is packed, so make sure you are wiping down your fridge to ensure an airtight seal every time it closes.
Make Sure There Are No Power Issues
If the fridge is simply out of operation completely, check for power issues including the power cable and any nearby breakers. A commercial fridge can use a lot of power and it's possible a breaker has gotten tripped or that there is a major issue that needs to be repaired.
Make Sure You Have Professional Help at the Ready
If the above tips don't quickly fix the issue at hand, you need to have an appliance repair service on standby ready to assist. Look up such a service before you need one so you can quickly reach out and get professional help. The longer you wait to fix the problem, the higher the chances are that you will degrade the quality of your food and cost your business money.
