How to Tell If Your Refrigeration Equipment Is Faulty From the Commercial Equipment Experts, Virginia Beach, Virginia

If you run a food service business, concession stand, or convenience store, you have probably experienced the stress and uncertainty that arises when you know your refrigeration equipment is on its last legs. This is when it's time to call the professionals at Tech-24, the preeminent commercial equipment repair and food equipment installation service with locations across The United States. You want to delay the inevitable before you have to splurge on an expensive new purchase, yet you don't want to wait too long, or your cooler could croak and leave you with no way to refrigerate perishables. 

The experts at Tech-24 understand this game of "chicken" all too well. Below, they offer several tips to help you determine if your refrigeration equipment is faulty: 

  • Check Outlets & Breakers: If your equipment stops working, before you call a service technician, check to see if the unit is plugged into an outlet first. Then, make sure the outlet is live. If it's not, see if all the breakers and fuses are intact. If you pop breakers or blow fuses regularly, you may have a wiring issue instead of an equipment problem.
  • refrigeration equipmentCheck Temperatures: Make sure your equipment is operating at the proper temperatures. An inability to do so may indicate a problem. Walk-in and reach-in coolers should stay between 35 and 38 degrees Fahrenheit while reach-in freezers should keep food between five and 10 degrees Fahrenheit. Walk-in and ice cream freezers should stay at zero or below.
  • Clean Condenser Coils: Clean the coils regularly to reduce the chance of overheating and system failure. This is the most important maintenance task you can perform on your cooling equipment. Look at the lower panel if the system is self-contained. Large equipment may have remote coils in a basement, on the roof, or in the attic.
