Warning Signs That Your Commercial Refrigerator Needs Repair

You might run a business that uses a refrigerator to keep particular supplies — such as food or medication — at the low temperature essential for their upkeep.

So, if this refrigerator breaks, there could be major repercussions — especially financially — for your company. It’s crucial to watch out for the following signs that indicate you need refrigeration repairing services.

Excess Ice

Though it is natural for ice to build up in a refrigerator over time, there are certain circumstances where you can end up with more ice than is actually useful.

For example, you could accidentally set the unit’s temperature too low, or overload the refrigerator and consequently hamper its airflow. Of course, you could defrost the refrigerator, but if it continues to produce surplus ice afterwards, only a repair might banish the problem for the long term.

Door Issues

You probably open and close the refrigerator door pretty often, but as you do, do you notice the door not quite sealing properly? In this case, you should check whether the door seal is worn.

If it is, you need to get it repaired as soon as possible, as too much warm air entering the unit can ultimately harm what you are striving to keep refrigerated.


Has a large puddle started forming beneath the refrigerator and pooling further along the floor? This situation would obviously pose a fall hazard to people who walk across the area.

If the refrigerator is leaking, see if you can stop this by carrying out a defrost or flushing the drain. If neither strategy works, you might need to reach out to a repair technician.

Low Refrigerant

Replenishing refrigerant is a task best left to a refrigerant technician, as the inside of your fridge contains chemicals that could be dangerous for you to handle personally.

How can you tell in the first place if the unit is low on refrigerant? One warning sign would be the refrigerator’s door or interior feeling unusually high in temperature.
