The Most Common Causes Behind A Malfunctioning Refrigerator

An inadequately functioning fridge To maintain a constant flow of customers and a healthy profit margin, restaurant and grocery store owners must stock their establishments with various food items. Some individuals would make substantial financial investments in large refrigeration apparatus to meet the demand for cold storage.

Despite this, a substantial proportion of the population is aware of and willing to utilise coolrooms. A coolroom is ideal for storing food that must be kept at a constant temperature. In addition, they do not need to worry about the quality of the products degrading over time.

Although the primary purpose of coolrooms is to preserve the freshness of products by keeping them at a constant temperature and in suitable conditions, these establishments also prioritise and make every effort to maximise health and safety.

Coolrooms can only reach their maximum potential when they are operating at their highest levels of productivity. If, on the other hand, your coolroom is malfunctioning, there are a few issues you can attempt to resolve before contacting us.

Poor Temperature Regulation

Many store owners wind up storing more products in their coolrooms than was initially intended. Imagine that the coolroom's thermostat stops working just as the stock is about to reach its maximum capacity.

If this is the case, the coolroom's temperature may have attained a dangerous level. Imagine, however, that the thermostat is malfunctioning and not detecting the correct amount of cooling required for the room.

Changes in the air temperature around the products, even if kept at the proper temperature, may still cause them harm.

After discovering the thermostat is damaged, you should immediately contact a repair service. Numerous problems exist with the vapour barrier.

The walls and ceilings of the coolrooms require routine maintenance. Falling-apart walls and ceilings are one example of such a problem. If your coolroom lacks a vapour barrier, the substantial walls and ceiling will not be protected from condensation-caused damage and moisture.

The walls and ceilings may deteriorate if this barrier is not installed properly

If the vapour barrier is not constructed correctly, the walls and ceiling of your coolroom could become a water hazard. The elevated temperatures inconvenience those who are present.

Mould growth on the walls and ceiling of the coolroom is quite average if the room's ambient temperature fluctuates. The inconsistent humidity levels in the coolroom increase the risk of mildew growth.

If the temperature inside the coolroom is lower than the outdoor air temperature, condensation and mildew growth may occur on the coolroom's surface. This issue manifests due to a confluence of causes, with inadequate ventilation and wall insulation being the most significant.

Inadequacies in the construction of the cold area

Only if the coolroom's layout is not optimised for productivity and business needs can it fail to function correctly. Various perishable products must be stored at optimal temperatures that vary. Inadequate refrigeration or chilling compartmentalisation may lead to increased food spoilage and supply losses.

Inadequate compartmentalisation, the absence of an automated defrosting system, and the inability to control the room's temperature are some factors that can exacerbate problems in a cool room.

You should immediately notify the appropriate authorities if you observe any of these issues in your coolroom.

Immediately contact NAFCOOL Commercial Refrigeration if you discover that your coolroom requires maintenance.
