Common Signs of a Malfunctioning Walk-In Cooler
Since you’re busy running a business, you may not notice that your walk-in cooler needs attention until it’s too late. Keeping a watchful eye on your commercial equipment, and telling your employees to do the same, will help you stay ahead of any problems. This way, if an employee tells you that the cooler doesn’t feel as cold as it usually does, you can check things out immediately and prevent a full failure.
Here are some signs that your walk-in cooler is experiencing problems:
While ice in a walk-in cooler may seem normal, it’s actually a sign that something isn’t right. Refrigerators are NOT supposed to cause ice buildup on the food or inside the unit. When this happens, there’s a chance that the evaporator is failing.
Another sign to pay attention to is bad odors. When a walk-in cooler malfunctions, it will generally start to smell bad. These odors come from old coolant, rotting food and decreased effectiveness.
You depend on your walk-in cooler to stay between 35 and 38 degrees Fahrenheit. However, if the condenser coil starts to fail, your cooler will heat up. And if you increase the cooling power, your system will have to work that much harder, potentially burning out.
When your walk-in cooler is running optimally, it shouldn’t make any noises. If it is, it’s trying to tell you something. Rattles, squeaks and shakes could be a sign of a malfunction. It’s best to fix it now, otherwise it can lead to further problems.

How Long Should You Expect Your Walk-In Cooler to Last?
On average, walk-in coolers last about 15 years. However, they can last much longer with proper maintenance, regular cleanings and quality repairs. With the expense of commercial appliances, you’ll definitely want to take care of your cooler and address issues quickly.
Depending on the size, a traditional walk-in cooler can cost between $6,000 and $10,000, though some cost much more than this. If the repair is going to cost more than half the replacement cost, we will recommend buying something new. We can still make the repair, but we will be honest about what we think is best for your budget.
