Taking care of the condenser coil
All refrigerators operate by one principle- expelling heat and warmth. Most refrigerators accomplish the feat of dispelling heat by use of a condenser coil. This tool works by drawing surrounding air and absorbing it. Because it has absorption properties, dust and particles may form on it. These particles and dust if not cleaned can lead to increased power consumption and system failures. A condenser coil needs a thorough regular cleaning.

Keeping doors closed
A commercial refrigerator needs to be closed to preserve the condensed air inside. As much as possible try to minimize the amount of time the refrigerator’s doors are open. This is because by opening the door, the commercial refrigerator condensed icy air dissipates causing defrosting to take place. Open doors also cause the water to leak. We help check the drainage hose as well to reduce the chances of it causing electrical malfunction due to clogging.
Replacing the door gaskets
Gaskets are the rubber seals that surround the refrigerator’s door. They are important in keeping the refrigeration compartment airtight and cool. We inspect all the sides of the door making sure the gasket is in good condition with no splits or tears. We can do a replacement on gaskets in poor condition. A regular replacement of worn out gaskets is key to making your refrigerator last longer.
