Commercial Freezer



A commercial freezer could be a warehouse size storage freezer, a walk in freezer, a restaurant freezer, an upright freezer, or an undercounter freezer.


Most of the freezers I've worked on have been set to maintain a freezer temperature of 0° F, and I've worked on a couple of large storage systems that maintained -10° F.


If you're on the process of selecting some new commercial freezer equipment, Bohn, Heatcraft, Hussmann, and Russell all make fine walk-in products; and for kitchen equipment, you might take a look at a Delfield, Hobart, Hoshizaki, Traulsen, or True freezer.


Determine exactly what size and configuration of box you need, what the load, or product in the box will be, where the box will be installed, and what electrical power supply will be provided.



Any major distributor or manufacturer will be happy to help you select the best combination of components for your system.


If you're getting ready to install a walk-in type commercial freezer, take a look at the instructions to get an idea of any extra materials and tools you might need.

Inventory the parts that came in the shipment, and make sure everything on the packing list is actually in the shipment and on the site.


When you install the system follow the installation guide, take it step by step, and it will be finished and running before you know it.


If you're test running a freezer that has just been installed or repaired, be sure to put some kind of a load in it.

A load will keep the temperature in the box steady when the system goes into defrost.


To help your commercial freezer run efficiently; keep the doors closed, keep the condenser and evaporator coils clean, make sure the evaporator and condenser fans are all running correctly and that air flow is not blocked through the coils, and make sure the defrost timer is set correctly.


If you're in the process of troubleshooting a freezer, our Freezer Repair page goes step by step through a few basic service calls, and has some tips that might give you some ideas, and save you some time.
