Refrigeration Maintenance Minneapolis –
When it comes to troubleshooting an issue with your refrigeration unit, you may want to ask a few diagnostic questions to help you narrow down the issue. If the answers to these questions don’t solve the problem, we encourage you to call the team at Quality Refrigeration in Minneapolis to take care of it. We handle both refrigeration installation and maintenance.
As always when working with electricity, please use caution and common sense.
Here are some basic things you can check. These are simple (and very common) causes for refrigeration malfunction and are generally the first thing any technician would rule out before investigating further.
- Does the unit have power? This one seems ridiculous, right? You might be surprised. Check to see if the box lights are on, or if the fans are working. If they are not, make sure that the unit is plugged in properly. This is possibly the most common cause for refrigeration failure and the first one to check of your list.
- When you know the unit is powered, move to the next step. Is the inside coil covered in ice? If it is, you will want to unload the unit and de-ice the coil.
- Is the thermostat on? This may seem basic, but just check it to make sure. A malfunctioning thermostat is an easy fix that is very common and can wreak havoc on your cooling.
- Is the condenser coil clear of dirt and debris? Ensure that there is nothing tampering with the condenser coil that could be causing it to act up. Sometimes, everyday dust and debris can cause electrical appliances to short or act funny.
At Quality Refrigeration, we offer regularly scheduled check ups for your refrigeration unit. This allows you to focus on the things you need to focus on to run your business. It also ensures that your refrigeration maintenance is kept up to date and everything is running as it should.
