No matter what type of business you’re running, if you rely on a commercial freezer for your daily operations, then you must ensure that it stays in good condition at all times. When your commercial freezer begins to show signs that it’s malfunctioning, you can’t afford to wait for it to fully shut down before you call repair technicians. It goes without saying that having a non-functional freezer will have a negative impact on your bottom line.
Below are some of the indicators of a freezer in need of repair services. Keep in mind that any type of refrigeration equipment repair requires trained professionals to do the job—and this is particularly true for large and powerful commercial freezers.
It may seem normal to see a bit of frost building up in your freezer, but unfortunately it is not, especially if it’s supposed to be a frost-free freezer! A damaged door gasket or two may be allowing humid air to enter the freezer, and this will cause frost to begin to develop along the evaporator coils. Soon you’ll notice a rapid drop in temperatures due to this.
The Freezer Constantly Runs
Freezers are meant to go through cycles of refrigeration. But if yours starts to run consistently without cycling off at all, there might be a problem with the thermostat or a broken thermometer inside the freezer. It could even be the result of leaking gaskets that are rapidly allowing cool air to escape.
If you notice your commercial freezer making more noise than it should during the time the compressor is running, then the problem is likely inside the compressor itself, probably a damaged fan. This type of repair need requires immediate attention, as the compressor is the most expensive part of the freezer to replace, and it’s often better to replace the whole freezer if the compressor fails.
