If you run a restaurant or if your business otherwise has one or more commercial refrigeration units, then you might be looking for a repair technician who can perform the necessary repairs. Commercial refrigeration units do sometimes need repairs; these are some of the common repairs that are often done, although there are other issues that repair technicians can address as well.

Replacing Seals and Gaskets

For your commercial refrigerator to do a good job of keeping food items cold, it has to have proper seals and gaskets. Proper seals and gaskets can also help your unit run more efficiently and help with reducing wear and tear on the unit. If your seals or gaskets are old and worn out, then they will need to be replaced with high-quality, commercial-grade seals or gaskets. A technician can help you determine if the seals and gaskets are, in fact, the problem, and they can then replace them so that your unit has a proper seal.

Cleaning, Repairing, or Replacing the Compressor

The compressor on your commercial refrigerator does a very important job. Over time, it can become dirty or damaged, which can cause issues with your commercial refrigeration unit cooling as it is supposed to. It's not a bad idea to learn how to clean the compressor yourself so that you can do it from time to time; a repair technician can perform the cleaning this time and show you what to do next time. Then, they can determine if cleaning your compressor alone is enough to keep it up and running or if it's necessary to repair or replace your compressor that your refrigeration unit will cool as it is supposed to.

Repairing or Replacing the Evaporator Fan

The evaporator fan has to turn and work properly to prevent your commercial refrigerator from freezing up. In some cases, the motor that causes the fan to turn breaks down, which means that the motor needs to be replaced. In some cases, the entire evaporator fan has to be replaced; otherwise, you might continue dealing with issues with your commercial refrigerator freezing up.

Replacing a Damaged Power Cord

To operate, your commercial refrigeration system has to be plugged into an electrical outlet. If something is wrong with the power cord, your refrigerator might not turn on at all. Luckily, this is typically a pretty easy and affordable fix, since a technician should be able to replace the old power cord with a new one. They can also help you ensure that your electrical system can handle your commercial refrigeration system needs.
