Troubleshooting Common Commercial Refrigerator Repair Issues in Fort Worth, TX

Commercial refrigerators such as the True T-49, like any other commercial appliance, can malfunction and may need maintenance. Even the most durable brands such as True may need repair, and so when you face refrigeration maintenance issues, you need to know how to fix the issues fast and efficiently, with the help of a seasoned commercial refrigeration service. You may also fix the problem yourself if it’s very minor. Here are the most common commercial refrigeration problems you may find, and a few tips on how to determine what’s wrong with your unit.

Commercial Refrigerator Power Issues

Is your commercial refrigeration unit not powering up? First make sure it doesn’t have a power switch that has been switched off. You should check to see if the power cord has been properly plugged in all the way to the outlet, as it may have been knocked out of place. If that still isn’t the option, then check if the wiring for the outlet and ground wires are active. The issue may be the power supply and not the unit. Use a voltage detector to make sure the outlet has voltage present.

Remember: Most refrigeration manufacturers warn users to never use extension cords for their commercial fridges, as use of the cords will void the warranty!

Temperature Problems with Your Refrigerator

Are you experiencing problems with your refrigeration temperature? Is it not cold enough? Having your refrigerator keep food cold enough is a necessary process of the commercial appliance, and thus, you’ll need to address this problem quickly.

First, examine your commercial refrigerator. Is it placed directly up against the wall? It needs to be placed slightly away from the wall to give it room to circulate air properly. Commercial refrigerators are made to withstand countless opening and closing operations, but sometimes the gasket can get worn down from wear and tear. Your door should close properly and seal completely so the unit can perform proper cooling processes.

You may also have a problem where the temperature gauge is offering an incorrect reading or is broken altogether. If this is the case, manufacturers like True have made the temperature gauge easy to replace. Your incorrect temperature read could be also be because of a blocked vent. Double check your temperature by using a thermometer to make sure to make sure the thermostat is indeed working.

 

Refrigeration Compressor

The refrigeration compressor is used to keep your food cool, and if it’s not working, your unit won’t cool properly. True and other companies outline in their respective manuals how often you need to clean the compressor, but it’s typically every 90 days. Dirt, hair, grease and more may build up in the compressor and keep it from functioning. Verify that the compressor has been cleaned recently, and is working as it should. Is it running hot?
Is your commercial refrigerator freezing up, and has ice collecting throughout the unit? You need to make sure that your evaporator fan is running correctly. You’ll need to first let the ice melt off the evaporator, if ice is present, by turning off your unit. The coils of the evaporator should be clean and you can locate cleaning tips in your model’s manual. Make sure that the drain lines are clear as well. You may notice that only a part of the evaporator coil is freezing up, which could indicate you have a low charge, so the pressures and sub-cooling may need to be checked either by you or a certified technician.

Commercial Refrigeration Lighting Issues

Sometimes you may have a minor problem, such as the lights aren’t working in your refrigerator. If that’s the case, you need to take a look at the lights themselves. True and other brands use LED lights, but if you need to replace a bulb, make sure it’s verified and approved by your refrigerator’s manufacturer, or else you run the risk of burning out the electrical sockets for the lights. Always read the manual that accompanies your refrigerator to make sure you’re using the proper recommended repair options.

When All Else Fails

If you’ve troubleshooted your commercial refrigerator and can’t pinpoint the exact problem, then you will need to consult a trusted commercial refrigeration repair service. Some brands make it easy to find a service locator by including a listing of repair services on their website. Remember if your refrigerator is still under warranty, you’ll need to check the warranty details to make sure any repair you or a third party performs won’t void the warranty.

You may also look into a maintenance plan offered by a certified commercial refrigerator repair service to make sure your appliance runs smoothly and doesn’t have a malfunction at a time when you’ll be inconvenienced. Regular maintenance on refrigerators will help minimize issues larger repair issues in the future.
