Whether you’re running a five star restaurant or a small town deli, your refrigeration system is an integral part of your business. In order to keep your refrigeration system in proper working order, it’s important to practice preventative maintenance. Here are a few things you can do to keep your system in tip top shape.
- Temperature - Check the temperature settings and make sure the equipment complies with local health regulations. The life of your food depends on the refrigeration system being set to the correct temperature.
- Door Hardware - Check the refrigerator latches, handles, door gaskets and heat strips to make sure the door is sealing properly and all handles are in proper working order.
- Airflow - Stacking boxes or containers of food in front of vents can cause an airflow blockage, which causes your system to run inefficiently. Each fan should rotate freely and quietly.
- Electric – Check all electrical wires and components for kinks, discoloration, and breaks. You should also check to make sure all electrical connections are secure. Loose wires can result in equipment failure.
In addition to the above, restaurant owners should also clean shelves, walls and the doors of the refrigeration systems, in order to maintain a clean workplace. For questions or concerns regarding refrigeration system replacement parts, call O-Reps.net at 888-289-5911.
