What should I do if my commercial refrigerator stops working?

It can often feel like the end of the world if your commercial refrigerator encounters a fault and stops working, especially if you rely on it day to day! It can put a halt to your businesses’ output and slow down your service each passing hour it is down. Vital time can be spent fretting about what the problem is and what you should do next. But don’t worry, you are in capable hands here at Bluebird Refrigeration.

If you find an issue with your refrigerator system, then our team of expert commercial fridge repair engineers can come straight to your premises and fix the problem for you, there and then. However, the problem could be one that is easily fixed and will have your refrigerator back up and running in no time, without our help!

Yes, we really are saying you may not need us to fix your fridge…

Read these following steps to take if your refrigerator is on the blink to find out what your next port of call should be.

Inspect the problem

The first thing you should do if you discover a fault is perform a full inspection of the unit yourself. It may be the case that you may have accidentally knocked the thermostat a few degrees up or down, or something is clogging your condenser grille that can easily be removed. If this is the case, then there you go! Problem solved straight away.

However, you may find a problem that is beyond your ability to fix (you’re likely to be no expert, after all) and may need a refrigerator repair expert to assist you. By attempting to diagnose the problem yourself, you can give the professional much more information which can help them be better prepared for when they visit.

Do some research

Similarly to the first point, make use of the internet to help you discover what the problem actually is. If you hear a funny noise from the condenser, or your system is producing a strange smell, then research what the problem could be, so you can give an expert a clearer diagnosis.

In fact, at Bluebird Refrigeration we have several posts on what these common faults could mean – be sure to check them out for yourself! This will make you feel more at ease about the problem, as you have a clearer picture of the task at hand for the engineer.

Fix it yourself!

If you have diagnosed the problem and it requires a simple fix, like as mentioned, resetting the thermostat or cleaning the condenser coils, then fixing it yourself can save time and money. But it is worth noting that you should only consider this option if you feel 100% comfortable and confident in doing so. If your gut instinct tells you that you should call a professional for help, then you should probably do just that.
