What To Do When Your Commercial Fridge Stops Working

We understand how much time it takes to run a business. When a commercial refrigerator is part of your Orlando, Florida operation, it is important to know who to call for fast, efficient service if the commercial refrigerator is not operating properly. Check for simple solutions like flipping a tripped circuit breaker. The trouble might even be due to the cleaning staff unplugging the unit before mopping and forgetting to plug the cord back in. Other possible causes that can interfere with proper refrigeration include:

• The back of the unit is too close to the wall. Move it out so air circulates properly.

• The unit’s temperature control gauge may be broken. Check the reading by hanging another thermometer in the unit and comparing the results.

If it isn’t an easy fix, call ServCo Appliance Sales & Service, Inc. at 407-855-6370 to describe the problem and get professional help fast.

Check the Temperature

We recommend hanging an easy-to-read stainless steel commercial refrigerator/freezer thermometer in your unit. Select a unit that can be hung from a rack or stood on the shelf. Place it in plain sight and advise employees to read the temperature whenever the door is opened. This inexpensive feature will help estimate when the unit developed a problem. If it was working an hour ago, but isn’t now, you have approximately three hours to find a place to store the food. Keep the door closed to keep warm air from moving in to the unit.

Emergency Refrigeration Options Regarding Perishable Foods

A reading at or under 40 degrees F typically indicates the food should be safe to use and can be moved to another refrigerator.

1. Coolers with ice are another way to keep the food from spoiling for a short time.

2. If the unit’s interior temperature is slightly higher, test the temperature for each perishable item of food.

3. You’ll probably want to discard anything that exceeds 40 degrees F, particularly poultry and dairy products.

Freezers hold the temperature up to two days, giving you time to take care of the fridge items. Our expert Orlando technicians are ready to respond to your request for guidance and recommendations, up to and including repair or replacement of your current unit. ServCo is certified to provide warranty service for nearly every major refrigeration manufacturer. We are dealers for respected brands such as Randell refrigeration units and Kolpak walk-in coolers and freezers. In the event your equipment is beyond repair or in need of an upgrade.
