Common Signs That Your Walk-In May Need Repair

May 15, 2015

Regular commercial refrigerator maintenance and care will allow your walk-in cooler or freezer to work properly and last over time. Unfortunately, like any appliance, repairs are sometimes needed. If you catch problems early on, you can decrease the chance of having to make costly emergency repairs. Watch out for the warning signs listed below and make an appointment with a repair center if you notice your walk-in seems to be malfunctioning.

 

 

Here are a few signs that may help you recognize when it is time to schedule a service call:

 
Frost Build-Up

 

Frost build-up could mean temperatures are dramatically changing causing items to melt then refreeze. Frost can also mean that humidity levels are off and there is excess condensation in your walk-in cooler. Frost build up near your door may indicate that is it not sealing properly and warm air is able to leak in. Be sure to check door gaskets for damage.

 
Fluctuating Temperatures

 

Your walk-in should maintain a nearly constant temperature. Temperature fluctuations aren’t good for your inventory. These fluctuations may be caused by a malfunctioning sensor. Make sure that walk-in doors aren’t being propped open for long periods of time, allowing warm air to enter the unit and cause it to work harder in order to regulate temperatures.

 

Odd Smells

 

Coolant leaks are often accompanied by strange or stale smells. If you notice a weird smell in your walk-in it may mean that your coolant is leaking and your condenser is old or malfunctioning.

 
Strange Noises

 

Odd noises in your walk-in often mean that your cooler is experiencing mechanical problems and needs repair. A service technician will be able to figure out where the noise is coming from and what the next step is to keep your walk-in functioning properly.

 
Water Leaks

 

Faulty, old insulation and damaged seals can both contribute to water leak problems. Water leaks can lead to mold or mildew growth and require prompt action and repair.

 

While repairs are never fun to deal with, catching them before they progress or damage inventory is helpful when it comes to keeping costs down. Alert employees of the different repair warning signs above so you can deal with any problems or malfunctioning walk-in components early on.
