Signs Your Commercial Refrigerator Needs Repair
How do you know when you need a commercial fridge mechanic? It is not worth taking any risks with a commercial fridge, and a failing refrigerator system can cause serious risks to health.
Signs that your commercial fridge may need repair services include:
- Loud noises such as knocking or banging during operation.
- The fridge is not cooling down properly. You should regularly check the temperature of the food inside your fridge as well as the refrigerator itself.
- There is water or ice building up inside the fridge.
- The door seal is damaged or failing and it becomes difficult to properly close and create a seal.
These are just a few examples, and there are many potential symptoms of a failing commercial fridge.
Risks of Not Getting Your Commercial Fridge Repaired
If you think commercial refrigerator repair is something that can wait, you may be risking more than you think.
Food or medicine that is not stored at the correct temperature may no longer be safe for human consumption, which can lead to illness.
Commercial kitchens are subject to Food Standards Agency checks, and it is your responsibility to ensure that your business continues to “operate effective food safety management procedures based on HACCP principles (hazard analysis critical control point).”
This includes keeping your commercial fridge in good working order.

Preventing Repairs – Commercial Refrigerator Maintenance
We also offer maintenance services including planned preventative maintenance for your fridge. This means that you may not need commercial fridge repair services, as the issues may be spotted and avoided before they get to the stage of a breakdown.
Quarterly or six-monthly checks are a good way to ensure that your system is always maintained by the professionals and stays in good working order.
There are many commercial fridge maintenance tasks that you can (and should) carry out yourself, too. These include:
- Cleaning the interior of the fridge.
- Inspecting food storage areas and checking that they are a safe temperature.
- Ensuring that the fridge doesn’t get overfilled, which can cause issues with keeping a safe temperature.
- Removing potential contaminants and out-of-date food or medicine.

Commercial Refrigeration Repair FAQs
Refrigerators do have a lifespan, and while it is possible that the refrigerator will keep going for some years it is important to establish whether a replacement might be a wise investment.
The most common issues include locked or failed compressors, failure of the fan motor, and dirty condenser coils. All issues should be dealt with by professionals. A compressor is crucial to the function of the refrigerator.
Regular servicing is a way to spot potential problems before they flare up as well as ensuring that the refrigerator is functioning at its full potential, and even expanding the lifespan of the refrigerator.
