3 Common Problems with Walk-In Coolers

In a commercial kitchen, the walk-in cooler is one of the most valuable tools as your disposal. It may not be located right in your kitchen, but it is surely nearby, and you certainly make frequent trips to it throughout the course of a lunch or dinner service, as well as during prep times. These units are used with such frequency that they are bound to take a beating, and the fact that they are never really powered down means they don’t ever get a break. It is no surprise, then, to learn that you may encounter problems with your commercial walk-in cooler in New Hampshire from time to time. When you do, schedule your repair services with the commercial refrigeration pros at HB Energy Solutions. 

  • Poor Temperature Maintenance: One of the most alarming of all the problems that you may encounter with a commercial refrigeration unit is its inability to maintain the right temperature within. This can lead to considerable product loss, a monetary hit that you really cannot afford. There are a number of reasons as to why your commercial walk-in may have trouble keeping your product as cold as needed. Perhaps there is a refrigerant leak in the system, or something as simple as a faulty thermostat. Whatever the problem, count on us to resolve it.
  • Icing: Again, there are a number of potential causes of this particular problem. It is possible that there is an air leak somewhere in the system, or that your doors simply are not sealing shut all the way. It could also be a problem with the defrost cycle, allowing vapor to come out of the evaporator, collect, and freeze up. Only a professional technician can decide for certain.
  •  Compressor Shuts Down: Perhaps no problem is as daunting as a commercial walk-in with a compressor that won’t start up. If your compressor doesn’t run at all, or fails to do so reliably, you need to contact us immediately. While there are simple solutions, such as a set temperature which is actually higher than the temperature within the walk-in, it could also be a result of tripped relays, or serious electrical failures. When you hire our staff to get to the root of the problem, you can count on it being resolved entirely.
