If you find one of the following issues, contact the experts in freezer repairs at STUARTEK.
1. Your Freezer Is Warming Up
It is imperative to monitor the temperature of your freezer. It is an important safety practice that all food and beverage businesses should undertake. If your staff don’t regularly monitor the temperature of stored products, you should definitely initiate this practice. If your freezer doesn’t seem cold enough, it probably isn’t. This is where maintenance/repair is necessary.
2. Air Leaks from Your Freezer
Air leaking from a walk-in freezer is a dead giveaway that your freezer requires professional repair. If your unite leaks air, there are usually two reasons, both of which require repair:
- The air leaking from your freezer is causing temperature rises.
- Your freezer is maintaining temperature but is working too hard. This can cause expensive breakdowns later on.
3. The Motor Consistently Runs
If your freezer’s motor is consistently running, there is most likely a problem. The motor often runs to ensure temperature control. However, if it is consistently running, this usually means the motor is not functioning correctly.
4. Ice and Frost is Building Up
If you freezer is building up excessive ice and frost, it probably is running incorrectly. Properly functioning freezers don’t incur frost/ice build up.
5. Your Freezer is Leaking Water
Water leakage is a common problem. It is also one that shows your freezer is in need of urgent repair. Just the same as a homeowner should invest in fridge repairs/a new fridge for this problem, the same goes for businesses.
6. Are Your Products Fine?
You know your products better than anyone else. Are they completely frozen? Do they feel the same as always? Have you noticed any changes in its look or feel once you have stored it in your freezer?
