A commercial refrigerator is necessary for any foodservice business, as it keeps all of your beverages and ingredients at the proper temperature. That’s why, in between service visits, it’s critical to undertake routine maintenance on your unit.

So, what are the things you must perform on a regular basis? Here are some commercial refrigerator maintenance suggestions to assist you keep your equipment clean and functioning well so you can avoid premature service and save both time and money.

1. Keep the Interior and Exterior of the Unit Clean

On a monthly or biweekly basis, try to plan a complete cleaning of your entire fridge unit. Take everything out of the interior and put it in a different unit or a temporary cooler. Scrub the shelves and surfaces with a gentle brush and warm water and soap or a vinegar solution. Remove any drawers and shelving that can be removed and soak for a bit before rinsing.

Your unit’s exterior should be cleaned on a regular basis as well. On a stainless steel exterior, it’s critical to utilize the right cleaning solutions and products. Abrasive scrubbers or sponges, as well as chlorine cleaners, should be avoided. Instead, clean the surface with a soft cloth or brush. For routine maintenance, a mixture of warm water and a vinegar or detergent-based solution works well. Consider using a baking soda paste or a stainless steel degreaser if you need to remove grease or baked-on food.

2. Clean the Condenser Coil on a Regular Basis

The condenser coil in your commercial refrigerator or freezer should be cleaned on a regular basis. The majority of manufacturers recommend cleaning every three months, and many manuals include detailed cleaning instructions. It can be difficult to regulate temperature if it is unclean or dusty, resulting in overheating and component failure.

The coil is positioned near the condenser of the unit. Disconnect the power and clean the coil with a firm bristle brush to remove dust and debris. Then, using a powerful vacuum or air compressor, clean any leftover residues. For further information, consult your equipment handbook. If your device is in a kitchen with fryers or griddles, your manual should include particular degreasing instructions.

3. Examine the Area Surrounding the Evaporator Coil

The evaporator coil, like the condenser coil, is an important part of your commercial refrigerator. The evaporator coil is placed near the evaporator fan and is responsible for collecting heat as warm air goes through the refrigeration system, assisting in the cooling of the inside of the unit.

Make a point of keeping the space around the coil free and clean on a regular basis. Avoid crowding too many items into the interior, especially if they’re piping hot. The coil can freeze if the vents inside the device are blocked, resulting in water leaks and a rise in cabinet temperature.

4. Examine the Gaskets Often

Any commercial refrigeration unit would be incomplete without door gaskets. Any form of fracture or crack in the door can prevent it from closing properly, allowing chilly air to escape the fridge’s inside. If a gasket is damaged, make sure you replace it according to the manufacturer’s instructions. When changing a True refrigerator gasket, for example, you must use the gasket that corresponds to your unit’s serial and model number.

Even if there are no splits or cracks, you should clean the gaskets on a regular basis to avoid harm. If the device is in a commercial kitchen where grease is frequently used, this should be done more frequently. Over time, too much grease and grime can wear down your gaskets.

5. Make Sure the Air Filters Are in Good Working Order

Often grease and dust from your fryers and griddles might clog up the air filters of your industrial refrigerator. Regular cleanings are necessary since a big buildup can hinder the unit from venting correctly. Remove any dust or loose debris with a powerful shop vacuum, then degrease any thick grease with a degreasing solution. For instructions on how to thoroughly degrease the filter, consult your unit’s service manual.

The air filter might be harmed by too much grease and dust. If you find debris splitting the filter, make sure you change it right away.

6. Clean Drain Pans and Tubes on a Regular Basis

Sludge and slime can build up in a large commercial refrigerator or freezer, causing it to freeze. Make sure to inspect your drain pan and any tubing that may be prone to clogging. If your drain is clogged with moisture and sludge, it can emit a foul odor that spreads throughout your kitchen. Use a vinegar solution or soap and warm water to clean the pan at least once a month.

Clogged drain tubes might also be caused by too much filth. To avoid a major clog, inspect the tubing every couple of months. When your drainage hoses become clogged, it causes an overflow in your defrost system, which drips onto your floor. If calcium or water spots appear on the hoses’ exteriors, clean them with soap and water to prevent further deterioration.

7. Make Sure Your Refrigerator Is Dry

Make sure to wipe away any liquid that accumulates on your reach-in unit’s shelving or surface. Over time, too much moisture in your refrigerator or freezer might cause it to freeze. You should not only clear up spills as soon as possible, but you should also check for moisture buildup at least once a week.

This maintenance routine is also applicable to a walkin coolers. Removing moisture from your refrigerator’s floors can help to limit the incidence of slips and falls.
