  • Keeps equipment running smoothly and efficiently.
  • Lengthens the life of your equipment by years.

Your planned maintenance agreement will keep small problems from becoming larger problems that result in large repair bills and downtime for your equipment. What’s more, your equipment will last longer and work better because it’s properly and actively maintained.

Planned Maintenance Service FAQs

What is preventive maintenance on commercial kitchen equipment?
  • Refrigeration units' condenser coils should be cleaned.

For storing various ingredients, a restaurant's refrigerators and freezers are essential. The performance of the device may be hampered if the condenser coil is greased or covered in dust.

  • Examine the hinges and door gaskets.

Check the door gaskets and hinges frequently on ovens and refrigerators. Gaskets that are dirty or damaged may allow heat or air to escape from the appliance, overtaxing the machinery. Use a clean cloth, warm water, and soap to remove any grease or debris once or twice a year.

  • Replace or clean your filters.

At the very least once every two months, you should clean the filters on your kitchen appliances. This holds true for all significant appliances, including ice makers, refrigerators, fryers, and ovens. Depending on the appliance, having too much dust or grease on the filters can obstruct water flow or proper air ventilation.

What is the useful life of commercial kitchen equipment?

The typical lifespan of any commercial kitchen equipment falls between 10 and 12 years, under optimal conditions. Only if the machine receives prompt assistance for commercial kitchen equipment repair is this true.

What are the benefits of a preventive maintenance plan for my commercial kitchen equipment?

As previously mentioned, maintaining your equipment on a regular basis provides a longer life span for the equipment. Even though you might not initially consider it, putting money into a program for preventative maintenance can keep the workplace safe. Gas or electricity are used by kitchen appliances to operate, and a problem could result in a fire. A PM program prevents such a scenario from occurring.

What are the typical tasks performed during a commercial kitchen maintenance call?

During a commercial kitchen maintenance call, technicians typically perform several tasks to ensure the kitchen equipment operates efficiently and meets safety standards. This may include cleaning and inspecting ovens, grills, fryers, and other cooking appliances to remove grease buildup and ensure proper functioning. They might also check and calibrate thermostats, replace filters, inspect gas lines for leaks, clean ventilation hoods and ducts, and lubricate moving parts. Additionally, they may examine refrigeration units, ice machines, and dishwashers for any issues and perform necessary repairs or adjustments.

How much does commercial restaurant equipment maintenance typically cost?

Factors including the kind and size of the equipment, the level of care required, and the provider's charges affect how much commercial restaurant equipment maintenance costs. For routine maintenance, organizations should budget between $100 and $500 for every visit on average. On the other hand, more costly repairs or specialist services can be required. To avoid expensive equipment downtime, it is important to set up a maintenance contract with a reliable supplier. This can occasionally result in cheaper costs and assure prompt service.
