CFESA Planned Maintenance Checklist

According to the Commercial Food Equipment Service Association, CFESA, scheduled cleaning and planned maintenance on critical kitchen equipment will minimize utility consumption, prolong equipment life, and give optimum performance.

  • Building up of frost:
    Sometimes, issues with the electronic components or fan of a refrigeration system can result in the build-up of frost. If you notice frost building up around the elevator coil, call for professional assistance.
  • Fluctuations in temperature:
    Temperature fluctuations can result from several factors, including but not limited to damaged sensors, defective fans, dirty coils, and malfunctioning compressors. If there are noticeable temperature fluctuations, seek our help.
  • Odd odors:
    Spoiled or rotting food is often the primary cause of bad odors in a refrigerator. But if you notice no such thing and your refrigerator is still causing a foul smell, it may be time to call for repair services.
  • Weird noises:
    Refrigerators are not supposed to make loud or strange noises. If your system has been making unusual sounds, attend to the issue immediately before it leads to a severe problem that cannot be treated with repairs.
  • Leakage of water:
    Water leakage may seem like a simple problem that can be fixed easily, but sometimes it may result from bigger issues like frozen water lines, clogged defrost drains, worn-out seals, and more. Call for professional repair services before the problem aggravates.

Refrigeration Equipment Planned Maintenance

*We only carry out refrigeration equipment maintenance in our Calgary location. 


Before the maintenance​:

  • Maintain temperature logs, "open-shift change-close" daily, and unusual patterns observed allow scheduling service prior to product loss emergencies.

  • Keep evaporator coils (cold air) and condenser coils (warm air) clean. Never obstruct the airflow of fans.

  • Never place un-refrigerated or heated products in "designed for storage" equipment; use ice baths or blast chill/freeze equipment.

  • Do not overstock storage units with a product; air should move freely around all items, especially sides and bottom. Cold pans should never be greater than 2/3 full (no mounding); keep pans in place constantly (1 out/1 in).

  • Before placing a service call, check that power is on and observe the temperature pattern for one hour to avoid false alarms (check resets).

  • All evaporator coils should be free of ice by visual inspection at all times.


  • All door gaskets should seal from outside air completely. Gaps will have a significant impact on performance. Cold pans should sit flush in place, with no bent corners.

During your maintenance visit, our technicians will:

  • Check general operation

  • Blowdown coils

  • Inspect compressors

  • Check sight glass for refrigerant levels

  • Test pressures

  • Check temperature

  • Check all hinges and latches

  • Inspect all door gaskets

Benefits Of Planned Maintenance

This program has been developed to keep your machines and kitchen equipment in good shape to avoid any sudden and unprecedented breakdowns. The program follows the "prevention is better than cure" approach and aims to correct any faults that might have occurred in your machine before they become problematic. The benefits include:

  • Performance optimization - making sure the equipment is operating correctly and safely

  • Confirm door gaskets on refrigeration systems - torn or missing gaskets can cause energy loss and cause the unit to work inefficiently

  • Identifying if pilots not working properly and are leaking gas

  • Cleaning condensers to allow more efficient operation of refrigeration systems and save energy

  • Provide you with warning signs on your food service equipment to help avoid major breakdowns and costly repairs

  • Allow you to monitor the condition of your equipment to help budget for future replacement

What to Avoid During a Maintenance

While maintenance is in progress, the following must be avoided:

  • ​Hosing down equipment

  • Neglecting filter changes

  • Improper application or use

  • Operating equipment with frayed, burnt power cords or exposed wiring

  • Operating any equipment without knowing proper operation & use as outlined in the owner's manual

Planned Maintenance Program with LDI

Planned maintenance (PM) is a scheduled service visit carried out by LDI. It is conducted to keep equipment operating correctly and safely to help extend the equipment's life by taking preventative measures before the fault occurs. This also allows you to monitor the condition of your equipment to help budget for future replacement and aligns with warranty requirements. We provide you with warning signs on your food service equipment to help avoid major breakdowns and costly repairs. Planned Maintenance can be arranged through our office and scheduled according to your needs and requirements.

As part of the program, LDI checks door gaskets on refrigeration systems to ensure they are not torn or missing. These issues can cause energy loss and cause the unit to work inefficiently. Pilots are checked to make sure they are working properly and not leaking gas. Condensers are cleaned, which will allow more efficient operation of refrigeration systems. Equipment will be checked over, and the technician will provide a report at the end of the service, which will outline any issues found with the equipment and give you the opportunity to plan repairs if necessary and distribute costs more effectively.

Setting Up a Planned Maintenance Program

The program can be scheduled at your convenience. To schedule one, all you need to do is contact us and provide us with a list of equipment present in your kitchen. We will take it from there: provide you with preliminary costs, the recommended frequency required to maintain your equipment and schedule an appointment with you to execute your program accordingly.
