Top 5 Maintenance Tips for Walk-In Commercial Freezers, Campbellsville, Kentucky

Most restaurants operate at a fast pace, so it’s easy for walk-in commercial freezer maintenance to fall to the bottom of a to-do list. However, maintaining commercial freezers and other essential restaurant equipment prevents a variety of irritating issues, such as burned wires, fan motor and thermostat failures, and increased energy bills. Sidestep these problems as well as costly repairs with the following commercial freezer maintenance tips.

Top 5 Commercial Freezer Maintenance Tips

1. Keep It Clean

Use soap and water to mop freezer floors and remove debris. Never rely on chemical cleaners, as they can damage the metal. Get in the habit of cleaning the freezer once a week or every two weeks to avoid the stubborn buildup of gunk and grime.

2. Examine the Door Seals

Check the door seals on all sides of your commercial freezer about once a month for cracks, rips, and punctures. Clean the seals using mild soapy water and a gentle touch to remove food debris and grease. Use this time to lubricate the door hinges as well.

3. Inspect the Condenser Coil

Located under covers on the back or sides of commercial freezers, coils are crucial for proper airflow. Use a screwdriver to remove the covers and clean the coils. Keep the area around the freezer clean as well.

4. Check the Temperature

Look at the temperature of your commercial freezer a few times a week and keep an eye out for extreme fluctuations in temperature. Serious dips or spikes can damage the contents of your freezer and increase your energy bills. Have your freezer inspected by a seasoned technician if you notice a severe temperature change.

5. Schedule Annual Professional Maintenance

Schedule annual maintenance with a commercial refrigeration company to ensure the functionality and longevity of your unit. As with most machines, maintenance can prevent a variety of problems, such as outrageous repair costs and skyrocketing energy bills. It also means the unit will perform at its best and avoid premature wear and tear.
