Common Commercial Refrigeration Problems

Our friendly and reliable commercial fridge technicians will be very happy to address any of your refrigeration problems, the most common of which are:

  • **Temperature Fluctuations**

    One of the most common issues with commercial refrigeration units is temperature fluctuations. This can be caused by a variety of factors such as improper thermostat settings, dirty condenser coils, or a malfunctioning compressor. Regular maintenance and monitoring of temperature levels can help prevent this problem.

  • **Ice Build-Up**

    Ice build-up inside the refrigerator or freezer can restrict airflow and cause the unit to work harder than necessary. This may lead to increased energy consumption and potential damage to components. Regular defrosting and cleaning of the unit can help prevent ice build-up.

  • **Leaking Refrigerant**

    Leaking refrigerant is a serious issue that requires immediate attention. It not only affects the cooling efficiency of the unit but also poses environmental risks due to harmful chemicals present in refrigerants. Professional technicians should be called in to identify and repair any leaks promptly.

  • **Faulty Door Seals**

    Damaged or worn-out door seals can result in air leakage, causing temperature inconsistencies inside the refrigerator or freezer. This not only affects food quality but also leads to increased energy consumption as the unit tries to maintain optimal temperatures.

  • **Compressor Failures**

    The compressor is a crucial component of any refrigeration system, responsible for circulating refrigerant and maintaining cooling temperatures. Compressor failures can be caused by electrical issues, overheating, or general wear and tear over time.


Compressor Replacement

A compressor for a commercial refrigeration system (cold room, walk in freezer, blast chiller, display / beverage fridge, restaurant underbars etc) is like an engine in a vehicle. Malfunctioning will immediately seize / lower the cooling capacity of the whole unit. In such an instance you would need a qualified and experienced commercial refrigeration technician to replace the faulty compressor and set pressure controls correctly. Showing signs that it’s high time for compressor replacement includes but not limited to; compressor making noise, compressor struggles or prematurely stops running, fridge bussing, excess frost, or insufficient cooling. Food spoiling, sweating and high electricity bills are also a resultant sign of a compressor overload or defectiveness. For a fridge compressor to be defective, it is caused by several issues: avoidable and non-avoidable. Such factors include contaminated refrigerant gas, dirty coils, high voltage due to power surge, wear, and tear. It’s advisable to have a regular maintenance schedule to avoid sudden costs and losses to perishables and profits. Arrange with us today!

Commercial Fridge Regassing

We regas all types of commercial fridges onsite and same day.

It’s advisable to have a well layout maintenance plan so we can gas refill and balance your refrigeration units time to time and avoid unnecessary costs. More so, the work must be done by a reputable company and qualified commercial fridge technicians as the gas is very dangerous and for proper work execution.

Commercial Walk in Cooler Door Replacement.

Walk in cooler door repair or replacement is one of the essential tasks that we carry out. Wear and tear, slams, accidents affect proper functionality of the cold room doors sometimes to an extent of reducing the cooling capacity of the walk-in freezer room as it allows air circulation in the cold room. As part of door renovations, we advise that we install air curtains to maintain the temperature levels and proper cooling.

Leak Fixing

Leak fixing is integral and complex task on commercial refrigeration repairs. Commercial refrigeration units especially coldrooms, walk in freezers and blast chillers are built with running pipes joined together to connect the inside unit with the outer unit. There is high risk of leakages especially on the joins. Leaks will effectively shutter the functionality of the cooler room. Refrigerant gas loss is an obvious effect, loss of temperature and food spoiling. We have an effective team that can trace and fix any leak on your commercial fridge.
