Frost and ice buildup is common in commercial freezers. In most cases, you can thaw the freezer and the problem is fixed. But if your freezer has constant frost buildup, commercial freezer repair is needed. Frost buildup is a sign that the system isn’t cooling properly. A commercial specialist can determine the root of the problem to prevent future buildup.
Damaged or Worn Doors
Your freezer doors must properly close and seal in order to maintain the right temperature. Otherwise, air leaks from the freezer, can cause temperature to rise. This impacts the temperature of your food, potentially causing food to spoil. If the doors on the commercial freezer are damaged or worn, now’s the time to have them repaired.
Check the area around the cooler. Are the floors wet? Does the room seem more humid than normal? A damaged or old seal could be causing the problem. Improper installation can also cause water leakage. Standing water presents all sorts of dangers. Your employees could be at a higher risk of slipping and falling. Water leakage can also cause mould and mildew growth. If you notice signs of mould or mildew, you need to take action quickly to prevent potential health issues.
Are you constantly having to adjust the temperature in the freezer? Not only can this be frustrating, it also increases electricity usage. Inconsistent temperatures can cause food to thaw and spoil. This could cause you to lose hundreds of pounds worth of food! Since this issue can be an electrical or a mechanical problem, you’ll want a professional to diagnose it.
Smells are a telltale sign that your commercial freezer is in need of repair. Odour can be caused by all sorts of issues including:
If you notice a smell coming from the freezer, don’t wait to have it looked at.
