5 Known Causes of Too Cold Commercial Refrigerators

12 January 2021

Businesses that must store food products invest heavily on proper cooling solutions. One of the cooling solutions that business owners often buy and maintain is commercial refrigerators. These refrigerators help them store food products at a low temperature so they can stay fresh and will not get spoiled easily. Additionally, these refrigerators allow them to preserve the quality of other perishable items.

Commercial refrigerators operate by keeping the interiors cold for proper cooling and even storage operations. They likewise prevent heat and other elements from entering and infiltrating food products. However, commercial refrigerators that are too cold can likewise be disadvantageous for business owners. Establishments that have too cold commercial refrigerators may encounter food products getting spoiled, deteriorating motors and other refrigerator components, and other problems.

Some of the most common causes of too cold commercial refrigerators are as follows:

Blocked Air

The cold air inside the refrigerator must circulate flawlessly to ensure that other components can perform their intended actions. Once the air is blocked at the top by some products, then the refrigerator’s temperature is expected to fall significantly. And when the refrigerator is turned off, the air will then transfer to the bottom, subsequently freezing food products that are stored in the crisper.

Wrong Settings

Commercial refrigerators are often comprised of two control knobs. One of these knobs is set to control the thermostat, while the other knob is designed to adjust the airflow between compartments. Setting the airflow to only one end or direction can easily lower the temperature of the cooling unit. One great solution to this problem is to set both knobs in the middle of the scale and let the refrigerator adjust for one day. 

Control Issues

Refrigerators that are too cold, even though they have functional fans and are set at the right settings, may have obtained some serious problems on their electronic controls. Having this specific problem often calls for professional help since there are electrical components involved. Additionally, fixing or replacing the controls can only be done with the assistance of a wiring diagram and adequate experience.

Air Leakage

Another known cause of too cold commercial refrigerators is the presence of outdoor air inside the systems. If the doors of the refrigerators are not completely sealed, then there is a huge chance that the outdoor air will infiltrate the units. And as this particular air circulates, the refrigerator will only keep lowering the temperatures and consequently cause harm to food products and refrigerator components.

Impaired Fan

Commercial refrigerators that have been running too cold may be working without circulation fan. Circulation fan enables the refrigerators to perform the needed cooling function at the set temperatures. Once it has stopped working, the refrigerator will acquire long run times and extremely cold temperatures.
