What refrigeration maintenance is needed for my system?

Refrigeration maintenance checks are crucial in ensuring that your system continues to run at optimum performance. If you neglect your system, it is more prone to faults and potentially costly repairs. By inspecting your refrigerator thoroughly, you can spot any issues before they become a serious problem.

There are some ‘blanket checks’ that are performed on all refrigerators, ensuring that their vital components are still performing to the desired standard. These include cleaning your equipment thoroughly to ensure there isn’t a build-up of dust, dirt or grime – which could interfere with how your refrigerator runs.

More complex refrigerator maintenance checks include calibrating your settings, making sure they haven’t been changed. Usually, gauges and temperature sensors are calibrated so that they continue to reach the required levels, giving accurate results at all times.

These are just some of the extensive refrigeration maintenance checks that can be performed by a professional, so you can trust you’re in safe hands with the team from Bluebird Refrigeration.

How can I perform refrigeration maintenance myself?

Although the help of a professional is recommended at all times to receive the most reliable results, there are some simple checks you can perform yourself. Without venturing too much into the unknown, some quick observations will tell you a lot about your refrigeration system.

For example, you can monitor the temperature thermostat and see whether it is displaying the right temperature. If this isn’t the case, you should get in touch with one of our commercial fridge repair experts immediately. Some other simple checks that you can perform on your own include cleaning the condenser coils and checking whether the door shuts securely.

We don’t recommend conducting your own in-depth maintenance of the refrigeration unit. Without specialist knowledge, it’s easy to damage your refrigerator by fiddling with components that you’re not used to. You should leave any detailed checks in the hands of a professional, so you can be sure your refrigerator is receiving all the TLC it needs and deserves.

What’s the difference between reactive refrigeration maintenance and preventative refrigeration maintenance?

There is one crucial difference between reactive and preventative refrigeration maintenance – that is, how quickly the maintenance is required.

Reactive refrigeration maintenance is needed if you’ve spotted an issue that may be affecting your business. Reactive maintenance is, just as the name suggests, in reaction to a fault with your refrigerator – which needs to be looked at straight away. This can obviously cost more due to the scale of the repairs, but in a needs must scenario, you’re going to want the best team by your side, right?

By contrast, with preventive refrigerator maintenance, you’re much more in control. This is because this kind of maintenance takes place before a problem is spotted. You may ask how this is possible? Our professionals can spot pending problems earlier than anyone else, increasing the longevity and lifespan of your refrigerator.

How often should I service my commercial fridge?

Your commercial refrigerator works 24/7 to keep your business running smoothly. And with such a heavy workload, it deserves some maintenance.

Whilst there are some types of commercial refrigerator maintenance that only really need to be performed a couple of times a year, there are other maintenance steps that it’s important to undertake on a monthly or bi-monthly basis.

Every month, you should empty out the ice bin in your commercial refrigerator if it has this feature. If you don’t do this, the ice may start to absorb odours from your fridge. It’s also likely to form a solid block, which will be impossible to use when you need it.

You should also check on your door gasket once every couple of months. If it’s dirty or worn, it could prevent your commercial refrigerator door from closing properly, which will inevitably put stress on the fridge’s motors. If the seal is loose, contact a commercial refrigerator maintenance company such as ourselves at Bluebird Refrigeration to resolve this problem immediately.

It’s also a good idea to clean your commercial fridge’s condenser coils regularly. These are at the back of your fridge, and their role is to condense and cool the refrigerant. If the coils are dirty, they’ll be causing your commercial refrigerator to waste energy by putting stress on the compressor.

Another important point to check regularly is that your commercial fridge is level. If not, it can put strain on the motor and cause condensation to form inside. It’s easy to do this using a spirit level.
