Types of Commercial Freezer.
While they all have the same basic function, commercial freezers can exhibit wide design variations. Some units have single doors, while others have double or multiple doors. Those doors can slide, split, or top-load. They can be small enough to slip under the counter or roomy enough to drive your car in. They can have many uses too, as many as there are different businesses. Ice cream retail, frozen food, and other displayed goods to concealed units in restaurants and commercial kitchens.
Solid-door commercial freezers have the advantage of energy-efficiency. It’s convenient to place them near the cook line in a kitchen or food prep area. As a rule, restaurant kitchens use the largest unit that fits into the space allocated for frozen storage. Some solid-door freezers have top-mounted compressors and low-positioned doors which maximize efficiency. Others have bottom-mounted compressors and higher positioned doors which tend to be easier on the body during use.
Glass-Door and Display Units.
Glass-door commercial freezers are less efficient than their solid-door counterparts. They compensate for this with versatility and utility. Ideal for customer use or kitchen or prep area that are on display.
Worktop, Under-Counter, or Glass-Top.
A worktop freezer is a counter-high unit with a top surface made from food-grade quality stainless steel. In a commercial kitchen, this surface can serve as a food preparation area. Casters mounted on the bottom of worktop freezers make them easy to move from place to place as required.
Most under-counter freezers are designed to fit in the space beneath the 40-inch counters. Some units in this category may have stainless steel tops, these tops are not meant for food prep. Some units come equipped with pull-out drawers.
Glass-top commercial freezers are most often used by businesses that want to maximize the visual appeal of frozen products such as ice cream and popsicles. They typically come equipped with easy-to-use sliding doors designed for customer convenience.
Roll-in freezers are also known as rack freezers. Units in this category have solid doors and ramps that make it easy to load and unload food stored on wheeled racks. Heights of these freezers vary, and businesses usually buy the tallest suitable units in order to conserve kitchen space.
Walk-in freezers give restaurants and other food-related businesses an easy way to freeze and store large amounts of food in one location. Units vary in size, and larger units may accommodate vast quantities of food. Businesses with insufficient indoor space can install outdoor walk-in freezers.
Regular Maintenance, Troubleshooting, and Common Faults.
Commercial equipment is often subject to more extreme environments than their residential cousins. Increased foot traffic, food spillages, doors left open, and greater workload all take their toll. Regular maintenance can only help with keeping the units on the straight and narrow. Measures to reduce these problems include:
- Cleaning and replacing door gaskets.
- Clearing up spillages, especially liquids.
- Ensuring the condenser is dust free.
- Keeping an eye on frost build up.
- Ensuring gaps for airflow are clear and wide enough.
There are many different makes, models, and designs of commercial freezers on the market but they all provide a similar basic function so common faults tend to occur:
- Seals/gaskets. The heavy use of doors in a retail environment often causes splits and tears.
- Icing. Ice can build up in various places and be indicative of a fault, leak, or obstruction.
- Incorrect temperature. Fluctuations or too warm/cold internal climate is often found with a defective unit.
The FDA advises that it is safe to store food at zero Fahrenheit (-18 Celsius). Above this temperature, harmful microbes could multiply. Don’t leave it to chance. Call us today.

“I had a refrigerator failure during last weeks heat wave. It was a ten-year-old, expensive Kitchenaid. Kitchenaid basically said that it was unrepairable because the serial # was missing so it would be impossible to get parts. I found West Coast online and they called me back in 30 SECONDS!!! That’s at 10 o’clock at night. Their man, Vladimir, came the next morning. He diagnosed it as a fan problem, found the part #, got the part and installed it for under $300. He did say that it might be computer related, but that would be much more money, so we did the fan first. The fridge and freezer are both working perfectly. I could not ask for more.”
