Commercial walk-in refrigerator repair is essential for keeping your products from getting too hot causing spoilage and increasing your business' overhead. Most of the issues with walk in freezers and coolers stem from the refrigeration equipment, but that doesn’t mean it’s the only thing that can cause problems.
Areas such as the doors, latches, and gaskets can also be a significant source of trouble as these often receive quite a bit of use and abuse. Repairs to your walk-in cooler door can lead to overall decreases in energy use and reduce how hard your compressor needs to run.

Common Signs Refrigeration Repairs Are Needed
Even though preventive maintenance can help to minimize the chance of major issues arising, there are no guarantees that your commercial refrigeration equipment won’t eventually have issues or break down. When it does, early identification of the problem, or a problem that is about to arise, is essential for minimizing the overall damage.
Your commercial refrigeration equipment, whether it’s your walk-in units or ice machines, is not meant to operate all the time. Instead, these units should be working only during the times when temperatures begin to rise. A sensor will detect when temperatures are changing then the compressor will kick in to return temperatures to stable ranges. If you notice that your refrigeration equipment is operating constantly, it means that the unit is having issues maintaining temperatures. This could be due to faulty sensors or it could mean that you have leaks in your gaskets or seals that are letting outside air in. Either way, this is a sign you need a professional to come in for potential repairs.
Inconsistent temperatures are a sign that your compressor may be having issues functioning properly. This is also usually coupled with leaks in your gaskets or seals, especially around the doors, that let in warmer outside air. You should look for this sign along with constant operation as the two often accompany one another. Remote refrigeration monitoring can help you to know when temperatures are continually falling out of the optimal range and putting strain on your compressor. It’s always best to call in a professional technician as soon as you notice regular temperature fluctuations. The more that your compressor has to work to keep the temperatures within an optimal range the higher the chances of a severe issue occurring.
Power issues can mean there is trouble with either the electrical components of the refrigeration equipment or with the wiring going into the equipment. For display cases and reach-in coolers that plug in, make sure you are never using an extension cord as these can cause problems with the power supply to the cooler. If you notice inconsistent power or periodic outages for your walk-in cooler or freezer, then it is imperative to call in the professionals immediately. This is a sign of a growing issue and could lead to a total shut down and potential product loss if not handled properly and promptly.
Commercial Refrigeration Repair Costs
Ice Build Up
There are multiple reasons why ice is building up in your commercial freezer or cooler. However, regardless of the reason, ice build-up is a sign that you have problems that are likely costing you extra money each month. When the ice starts to build up in your refrigeration equipment, defrost cycles must increase which can lead to significantly more energy being used than would normally be needed. For businesses that are storing food in their refrigeration units, this can also lead to damaged products and the loss of flavor in certain foods. Always make sure that freezer and cooler doors are being closed during restocking to more humid outside air from entering. If you do notice ice building up despite keeping doors closed, it’s likely time to call in a Tri-Point technician.
Strange Noises Coming From The Motor
Strange noises coming from machinery are never a good thing but when it comes from your refrigeration equipments motor it could be a sign of a serious problem. There are multiple causes including loose parts or debris trapped in the motor area, but it could also be a sign that your motor and compressor are about to shut down. If you notice strange noises coming from the motor, you need to contact a technician immediately. While this may be a simple fix, it could also be a sign of serious issues, and getting them fixed early can prevent more extensive damage and therefore more expensive repairs.
You may be wondering what the costs are when it comes to commercial refrigeration repair services. There is no way to provide a fixed cost as all service calls are different. Some repairs may be incredibly easy and therefore on the cheaper end. Other times, especially when preventive maintenance has
not been conducted, repairs can get quite expensive due to the parts and labor involved. The two primary factors that will influence the cost of your commercial refrigeration repairs will be the parts needed and the labor it takes to conduct the repairs. For this reason, it is always in your best interest to follow your maintenance schedule and make sure as much as possible you are taking care of your equipment. While occasional repairs are unavoidable, you can do a lot to avoid the more costly repairs that come about as a result of neglected equipment.
Original Manufacturers Parts and Guarantee On Labor
As much as possible, it is important to replace parts with the original manufacturer (OEM) parts when it comes to refrigeration equipment. Tri-Point technicians understand this and have worked on almost all major brands. The Tri-Point team has relationships with the manufacturers and the ability to use OEM parts when repairing your refrigeration equipment. Using OEM parts ensures that everything seamlessly works together and oftentimes will ensure you stay in compliance with the manufacturer’s warranty. Remember that not all refrigeration companies will use OEM parts. Some repair technicians like to use aftermarket parts to save money. Working with Tri-Point ensures your equipment is getting repaired with the best parts and equipment possible.
