Why You Should Repair Your Restaurant Equipment

Holman Toaster |
Are you debating whether you should repair or replace a piece of your restaurant equipment? Here are a few reasons why you ought to repair it:

  • Cost – As someone working in the industry, you know that you just can’t drop a couple grand on a new refrigerator every time it breaks down. It’s just not cost efficient! Fortunately for you, there are many parts available for both hot and cool appliances that are ideal for any breakdowns or just general maintenance.
  • Take Care of Other Issues – When you do maintenance and repair on an appliance, you get a chance to look at the system as a whole. During this inspection, you can see exactly what the problems might be, as well as discover other issues that may or may not have been part of the initial issue. Finding these problems now allow you to save money in the future.
  • Good for the Environment – If you are concerned with the environment, than you should consider repairing your equipment. Buying new equipment creates more waste and old equipment frequently ends up in landfills. Make the right choice for your future and your children’s future.

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.
