Commercial Refrigeration Inspection & Maintenance

At AFGO, we recommend several maintenance visits a year to keep your commercial refrigeration equipment in prime operating condition. Our typical preventative maintenance checklist includes:

  • Inspecting all refrigeration systems and components
  • Cleaning condenser coils to remove dust, dirt, grease, and other debris
  • Cleaning and degreasing refrigerator coils and evaporators
  • Cleaning and degreasing condenser fans to reduce drag and increase efficiency
  • Cleaning evaporator fans and removing any ice accumulation
  • Cleaning and lubricating fan motors
  • Inspecting defrost heaters, circuits, and timers
  • Cleaning condensate drains and drip trays
  • Inspecting electrical wiring for damaged insulation, chafing, and loose connections
  • Testing contactors, relays, and control circuits
  • Testing compressors and start capacitors
  • Checking refrigerant levels
  • Checking for signs of refrigerant leaks, like corrosion or oil stains
  • Cleaning and inspecting door seals and gaskets
  • Calibrating thermometers
  • Monitoring temperatures and refrigeration cycles

Between maintenance visits, it is a good idea to inspect your refrigeration equipment yourself a few times a week. This should include checking your temperature and defrost settings, inspecting door seals and gaskets, checking for cold air leaks, and keeping the space clear around condensers, evaporators, and compressors.

If problems are found during the maintenance process, our team also offers full commercial refrigeration repair, as well as equipment replacements. Our repair services are available 24/7 for help anytime you need it.
