5 Most Important Parts of a Commercial Refrigerator

Commercial refrigerators are hardy, dependable machines consisting of several components. When they malfunction, you need to find a professional refrigeration equipment services provider for diagnosing problems with commercial refrigerators.

 Commercial Refrigerator

Here are five components that technicians focus on when checking a commercial refrigerator.

1. Compressor

Compressors move refrigerant across the entire system to introduce the cooling effect that preserves food. Over time, compressors can get dirty and dusty in certain areas, which HVAC and refrigeration specialists can clean using special tools and methods. Never DIY the cleaning or inspection of your compressor to avoid damage to the equipment.

2. Condenser Coils

These coils introduce airflow over the compressor and the condenser fan motor for efficient temperature regulation. Problems with the condenser coils can affect the refrigerator’s cooling capacity.

3. Condenser Fan Motor

Condenser fan motors regulate the air flowing over the condenser coils. It increases or decreases speed according to sensor reading or fixed thermostat settings. These motors require immediate attention. If you hear them producing sounds louder than their usual hum, call refrigeration and HVAC companies for a proper diagnosis.

4. Thermistor

Thermistors read conductivity changes, allowing them to reflect the smallest temperature changes. Commercial refrigerators can have a thermostat or thermistor that will require immediate replacement if damaged.

5. Evaporator Fan Motor

Evaporator fan motors pull air from the refrigeration compartment for effective cooling, while the condenser fan motor introduces airflow over the compressor. An evaporator fan emits a loud noise when it’s malfunctioning. You can switch it off and call reliable a technician to inspect your equipment.
