Of course, professional cleaning and maintenance is vital to keeping your commercial freezer working properly, but, you can do a few things to help your refrigeration unit to work right longer. The trick to self analysis of your refrigerator is knowing what to look for and when to call for help. Some obvious signals that your freezer is not working right are thawed items stored in your freezer. Finding water under your freezer or smelling something like formaldehyde are other signals that your freezer needs to be checked, repaired, or get a professional maintenance fix up which might be your best first reaction if you see any of these above mentioned signs of freezer problems. These self checks on your refrigerator might be all that you need to do to repair your freezer yourself.

The first important part of your refrigeration is the condenser. The condenser is a coil that is located on the bottom or behind the refrigerator. If the condenser coil needs to be checked visually, there is usually a screw located on its cover that can be easily taken out. Another important safety check on your refrigerator is to make sure that your refrigerator’s door gaskets are sealing properly. If air is seeping inside your refrigerator, you are at risk of losing your refrigerator. Refrigerator door gaskets can be cleaned with soft soapy water.

If your refrigerator has a drain line connected, check to see that the drain ends are clean. A straw can be inserted into the end of a drain line to clear up whatever condensation that could block your refrigerator water line connection. These precautionary measures to keep your refrigerator working better and longer should be supplemented with professional maintenance. A professional cleaning of your refrigerator could include the use of pressure cleaning of your refrigerator’s condenser, clearing out of all drains connected to coils going to your refrigerator, checking the temperature of your refrigerator, adjusting the refrigerator’s cycles, cleaning and checking the refrigerator door gaskets, oiling refrigerator motor and bearings if oil stations are used on your refrigerator, making an outside check with another thermometer to verify that the refrigerator’s thermometer is working properly, checking the refrigerator’s wiring system, deciding if the insulation in the refrigerator is sufficient to keep the inside at the temperature set and the outside at room temperature, and other checks on wiring and refrigeration of stored items.
