Commercial Griddle Repair: A restaurant encountered difficulties with the inconsistent heating of its commercial griddle. I intervened, disassembled the griddle, and meticulously cleaned its heating elements. Subsequent tests were conducted to validate uniform heat distribution. The client was signed up for our commercial kitchen equipment maintenance service plan to ensure the appliances within the facility remain well-maintained for the client and their business.

Commercial Grill Repair. A malfunctioning grill was causing operational disruptions for a commercial client. Our repair team swiftly diagnosed the issue—a faulty thermostat—and promptly replaced it. With the new thermostat in place, the grill was restored to optimal temperature control, allowing the establishment to continue serving grilled menu items.

Arrived on, 08/21/23- Kayden- On arrival found that fan was not working properly. Ran to supply house and got fan. Turned unit on and found that unit was low on refrigerant. Added refrigerant and watched unit drop to temp. Will return to leak check and further check. Returned on, 08/22/23- Kayden- Removed covers to the unit and began to leak check. I found the packing nut on the high side service valve leaking, so i tightened it to stop the leak. I went over the rest of the unit, but didn't pick up on any additional leaks. Pressures are still good and unit is cooling.

Commercial Kitchen Equipment Repair Service near Old West Chocolate Ave. I arrived at the client’s location to repair their commercial fryer. I inspected the appliance to determine the source of the problems. After determining the source of the problem to be an unlit pilot light, I relit the pilot light on the client’s appliance to get it working again. I tested the fryer to ensure it was heating to the proper temperature. The client was relieved that it was such a quick and easy fix!

Arrived at location on 1/20/23 - Upon arrival I had Bryan show me where the walk in is. I first thought the call was for a frozen evaporator, however they advised me that they shut the unit off at the breaker because it was freezing their wine bottles and other product inside. Box was at 25. I checked the thermostat and found it wasn’t sending anything to the unit. Removed old thermostat and installed new one. Powered unit back on and set the thermostat for 38 degrees. Watched unit satisfy and made sure temperature reading was accurate. Unit is working properly at this time.

Walk-In Freezer Unit had a lot of ice build up on inlet side of coil and fan was stuck it ice. Deiced unit with torch and turned back on. waited for unit to get below 20 and checked defrost and heater which all worked. Superheat was high. Need a new Sporlan EFSE-1/2-ZP. Called United Hbg and it will be there tomorrow. 1/31/20 removed old expansion valve after removing 5 lb of 404a. installed new expansion valve, pressure tested with nitrogen, ran deep vacuum and put 5 lb of 404a refrigerant back into system. box came down to temp in cycled off. Pressures look good. 2/3/20 Compressor was noisy when I arrived but the box was cold. I closed the receiver and the compressor took a while to pump the system down. I checked the amp draw after opening the receiver and it was a little lower than it should be. It sounds and acts like the compressor threw a piston rod. It is still cooling for now but the compressor should be replaced. I will quote replacement.
