Your investment in a commercial refrigerator can last forever if you take the necessary measures to prevent major damage. There are things you can do as an owner to provide this preventative maintenance. You can also add additional refrigeration parts to your refrigerator. These inexpensive parts will give you the performance that you require, and help you expand the capability of your refrigeration system.
Gaskets The gaskets on your commercial refrigerator are built to withstand years of use and abuse. Irregular cleaning, however, may shorten the life of your gaskets. It is helpful to maintain your refrigerator door by purchasing extra gaskets to serve as replacements when older gaskets begin to stick or rust. Cleaning your gaskets once each month can extend their performance and durability. Casters The casters attached to the bottom of your commercial refrigerator can become gummed up with dirt, oils or other debris that is common in restaurants. Due to daily wear and accumulation of debris, the casters will eventually need to be replaced. Doing so will provide you with increased mobility for your refrigeration unit. These refrigeration parts and other accessories are part of a normal routine maintenance schedule during refrigerator ownership. Shelving As your business grows, you can never have too much available space, and storing more food products becomes a necessity. If you are not in a position to purchase a bigger unit, adding more shelves to the inside of your refrigerator is a low cost option to make the most of your space. White wire shelves do not rust, and help give you the extra space that you need for storing more food in your commercial refrigerator. Shelf Clips Inexpensive shelf clips are an essential part of maintaining your refrigerator. Clips may get jostled or bumped, resulting in damaged or missing clips. When clips are missing, the structural integrity of your wire shelving is compromised. A good supply of extra shelf clips is an important refrigeration part to keep in stock at your restaurant. It’s important to remember that all refrigeration (and their subsequent parts) need routine maintenance and regular inspections- browse our selection and please call us if you should have any questions at 800-319-0690 as to how you can better maintain your refrigeration equipment!
