Whether you manage a small family diner or a high-volume hotel kitchen, it is critical to be able to depend on the appliances that keep your food safe and delicious. If a fridge or freezer is acting up, it is time to call our professionals to schedule rapid repairs. Our trustworthy techs at Westcoast Mechanical Contractors can provide the quality clients deserve. Rely on our devoted specialists to keep your product at reliably safe temperatures with our Sanford commercial refrigeration repair and maintenance.
Freezers are incredibly useful in their ability to keep food safe from bacteria. However, this task is dependent on how well they can stay at the required temperature. Business owners should keep a careful eye on freezers to look for any signs of trouble. This will allow us to schedule rapid repairs or arrange for key replacement parts before too much food begins to spoil.
Signs a Freezer Needs Professional Help
Call our techs right away when seeing:
- A freezer door that continually fails to latch properly
- Leaks forming beneath the freezer
- A motor that makes extremely loud noises
- Utility bills that have dramatically risen on account of increased cooling costs
- Condensation or frost accumulating on top of the food or drinks
- Food and beverage products are spoiling or suffering from freezer burn
Why Isn’t My Refrigerator Keeping Things Cold?
Since a fridge’s sole purpose is keeping things at an appropriately cool temperature, it is a major problem when refrigerated food feels lukewarm to the touch. But what causes the problem in the first place? One of the most frequent issues is an electrical surge. A surge of high voltage can often damage the compressor or ice maker. However, lack of maintenance is another common culprit. With dirty condenser coils, a fridge can work as well as it should. Let our techs examine the issue and provide the right repair.
Common Causes of a Refrigerator Breakdown
Refrigerators can break down for many reasons. Here are some of the most common causes that we encounter.
The thermostat is not functioning correctly. This malfunction can cause the refrigerator to be too warm or too cold.
Dirty or clogged condenser coils can also impact a refrigerator’s performance. This problem usually results in higher energy bills and a shorter lifespan for the appliance.
A faulty evaporator fan motor can cause a lack of airflow, leading to improper cooling and eventual breakdown.
Likewise, a malfunctioning compressor can make a refrigerator stop cooling altogether.
Our Refrigeration Repair Process
Our experienced technicians begin by thoroughly inspecting the appliance and determining the source of the issue. Next, we disconnect the fridge from any electrical connections. This step prevents any accidental shocks.
Next, we give you a detailed explanation before offering our repair recommendations. Most often, repairs involve replacing or fixing a part. In some cases, the fridge cannot be repaired and requires a full replacement. Our team is honest and upfront in these situations. We never try to upsell our clients or make them pay for something they don’t need.
Once you've authorized the repair, we get to work, and we can have your commercial refrigerator up and running in no time.
Preventative Maintenance for Your Refrigeration System
Regular maintenance is key to keeping your commercial refrigeration system running smoothly and efficiently. Our team offers preventative maintenance services to help you avoid costly repairs and downtime.
Our comprehensive maintenance services include:
- Checking door seals and gaskets
- Cleaning and inspecting condenser coils
- Checking and replacing refrigerant levels
- Testing and calibrating temperature controls
- Inspecting and lubricating fan motors and blades
First, we unplug the refrigerator and empty its contents. Next, we remove dust, debris, and food particles from the condenser coils using a soft brush or vacuum. Then, we clean the interior and exterior surfaces using a mild detergent and warm water. After that, we inspect the door gaskets for any signs of wear and tear and replace them if necessary. Finally, we make sure to level the fridge so it rests firmly on its feet.
Many business owners know the value of maintaining their establishment’s special equipment. From HVAC systems to sump pumps, everything requires some TLC to keep working properly. The same principle applies to refrigeration systems as well – in fact, they require even more maintenance since they are required to run 24/7. Food can spoil quickly if a fridge or a freezer falls even slightly below a precise temperature.
Not only does this cost a lot of money in terms of wasted food and beverage products, but it puts people’s health at risk. To avoid jeopardizing the well-being of clients and staff, always schedule regular servicing two to three times annually with our skilled techs at Westcoast Mechanical Contractors.
