Help! My Restaurant Refrigerator Just Stopped Working

If you’ve ever worked in a restaurant, you know that the refrigerator is arguably the most important piece of equipment in a kitchen. So if the refrigerator unexpectedly stops working, you may not be able to keep your kitchen up and running.

Fortunately, Coolit! can help during even the most dire situations.

The Importance of Cold Storage in a Restaurant

Why Commercial Refrigerators Fail

Typically, the most common reasons why these refrigerators fail is because of:

  • Ice buildup: Ice buildup could be a sign of several issues within your refrigerator, including a leak in your refrigerant, poor air ventilation, dirty fans or filters, or improperly set up defrost cycle.
  • Old age: Even the most expensive commercial refrigerator won’t last forever. With the average commercial unit lasting about 10 years, it’s important to keep track of when yours was installed.
  • Poor maintenance: Like all other appliances, commercial refrigerators need to be maintained at least once a year.

What Happens if my Refrigerator Fails?

If your refrigerator suddenly stops working or has been struggling to stay cool, you could soon have an expensive problem on your hands. Food safety and quality are two of the most important reasons to have a refrigerator and freezer. With some food spoiling within just a few hours of being on the table, a broken refrigerator can end up costing you hundreds, if not thousands, in spoiled products.

When a restaurant’s refrigerator stops working, it will need cold storage ASAP. By renting a Coolit! unit, we can help keep your food safe and delicious, and allow your business to stay open.
