In the world of commercial refrigeration, some of the most common pieces of equipment are walk-in coolers and freezers. These units are used in grocery stores, gas stations, restaurants and hotels to keep food and food-related products fresh or frozen. While most of the time these units work perfectly, there are times when they breakdown, potentially causing major problems. Today, we are going to take a look at several of the most common problems that business owners face when it comes to walk-in coolers and freezers.
- The door gasket – This is one area in which both freezers and coolers face the most problems. The doors of these units are opened and shut all day long. This common wear and tear can break down door gaskets making you lose valuable cold air, which is costing you money in energy bills.
- Icing – Another common problem is icing. Icing can be caused by an air leak somewhere in the system. While the door gasket may be the source of the leak, there could be leaks at many different points in the system. Only a professional commercial refrigeration technician can find and properly repair the leak.
- Loss of temperature control – When your unit fails to reach the proper temperature needed to store food, your business can be in serious trouble. This may be caused by a lack of coolant in the system or a defective thermostat.
- Compressor failure – This can be a big problem if not dealt with properly. When your unit suffers a compressor failure, you only have a certain amount of time to get it back up and running or risk losing your inventory. There are many causes of compressor failure, and only a qualified professional can determine the problem’s root cause.
