Taking Care of Your Commercial Refrigeration Units

Commercial Refrigeration Parts |
Owning a large commercial refrigerator or freezer means that you will need to do a fair amount of maintenance. Here are some tips to help you keep everything in working order:

  • Condenser Coils – Making sure that your condenser coil is in good shape is relatively simple with most commercial refrigerators and freezers. Typically, you only have to remove a cover at the bottom of the unit. If this part is not cleaned regularly, you will be spending more money on electricity and your system may start to shut down.
  • Gaskets – We often don’t think about it, but the door gaskets on refrigeration and freezer units are very important. These pieces of plastic stop your unit from working overtime. You should be cleaning the gaskets regularly – it’s as simple as wiping them down with a wet and soapy rag. Without working gaskets, you are making your refrigerator or freezer work overtime!
  • Fan and Motor – When doing a deep cleaning of your refrigerator, you should be checking out the fan and motor to make sure they are clean and in working order. Cleaning these parts makes sure that your refrigerator doesn’t frost over or lose power.

When it comes to new commercial refrigeration parts, you can rest assured that the O-Reps has the selections you need. We offer a huge variety of parts for your commercial cooling devices, including walk-in cooler, refrigerator, and freezer parts.

Simple Issues – Walk-In Cooler Problems

Cooler Door Gaskets |
Have you been experiencing issues with your walk-in cooler? If the answer is yes, there may be a simple answer to your problems. Take a look at the following:

  • Latches – One of the simplest explanations is to check the latches. When the door latch is not working properly, your door may be open – even the smallest bit. If this is the case, then the cooler will start working overtime to make sure that it’s cooling properly. This will increase your energy bill and may cause your motor to overheat and dies.
  • Gaskets – Another simple issue that may be causing your cooler or any refrigerator to not work properly is gasket issues. Take a look at the gaskets around the door – if they are damaged or not there, then that may be the source of your problem. To prevent issues from happening, make sure you regularly clean your gaskets and replace them when they are damaged.
  • Hinges – If a hinge is loose or no longer attached to your cooler, you have a problem. These hinges are a vital part of your cooler, making sure that the door closes properly and stays closed. It’s vital that you keep an eye on the hinges, making sure that no one on your staff is too rough.

From cooler door gaskets, latches, and hinges to lights and handles, O-Reps has everything you need to repair and upgrade your walk-in cooler.

Taking Care of Wire Refrigerator Shelving

Commerical Refrigeration Parts |
Whether you have a spill in the walk-in cooler or are just trying to tidy up your refrigerator, it’s important to keep up with the wire shelving. To clean your shelving, you can do the following:

1.       Remove all shelving from the refrigerator, freezer, or cooler.
2.       Put the shelves into a bathtub or large wash basin and clean them with standard dishwashing soap and steel wool. It’s vital that you do this to get rid of all of the food and grease off.
3.       Let your shelves sit outside and dry.
4.       Replace the shelves and enjoy your nice clean cooler, freezer, or refrigerator.

It’s really that simple. Before you get started, you should take a look at the shelves and make sure that you have the proper tools to remove them. Having all of the tools together ahead of time makes the job easier.

If even cleaning won’t help your shelves, you can get new ones when you shop online with O-Reps.
