A properly working commercial freezer is crucial for many businesses, keeping perishable supplies safe and keeping you from losing inventory. However, as with any appliance, these freezers are always susceptible to issues that could be minor or impactful to your business. Below we have listed some of the most common signs that you require freezer repair services.
When to Call for Appliance Repair Services
- Constantly Running – Similarly to how a radiator or AC unit operates, a freezer will cycle between cooling and waiting for the temperature to rise above a certain point. If your freezer is constantly running or starting another cooling cycle right after a previous one has ended, then there may be an issue. It could have something to do with the thermostat or a broken seal if the freezer is constantly trying to cool its contents.
- Frost Accumulation – If the interior of the freezer is building up frost and beginning to look like a penguin’s home, then you are in definite need of repairs. This could be a sign that the thermostat or defrost timer has been damaged, but it is more than likely that it is an issue with the door of the freezer. If the door is not sealing properly, then moisture can enter the freezer and begin the ice buildup.
- Warm Areas – If refrigerant leaks, the food and drink within the freezer can spoil. This can lead to food poisoning, loss of product, and severe financial losses for your business.
Another important aspect of owning a business is keeping your employees and customers at comfortable temperatures. To achieve this, you should have the professional HVAC technicians at Wilbur’s inspect your property.
