Building an extension for my mother-in-law

I love my mother-in-law but I never planned on living with her permanently. I have been enjoying her living with us now that we have kids but I feel like we all need some extra space so I am getting a granny flat built at the back of our block. This should allow us to have some extra space to make sure everyone has the privacy that they need whilst we can still be a family. This block has some tip on the process of building a granny flat including how to choose a contractor and how to get the council approval for the build.

Best Tips for Troubleshooting Noise in Commercial Freezer Rooms

by Chloe Cooper

The noise coming from a commercial freezer room might be trying to tell you something. All fridges produce some sort of noise or humming, but the loudness separates an ordinary noise from that which should be cause for concern. Besides, when a refrigerator is too silent, then the compressor might be faulty. Most fridge manufacturers indicate a list of noises that are regarded as normal, and thus, might not require you to call a repair technician.

If a fridge is under warranty, any unauthorised repairs might void the warranty. Therefore, always work with certified and experienced freezer room installation and repair experts. Also, an expert is better placed at advising whether you need to repair or replace a particular component. Here are some tips for troubleshooting noise in commercial freezer rooms.

Check the Evaporator Fan Motor Grommet

An evaporator fan motor grommet attaches to an evaporator fan motor to reduce vibrations. Over time, an evaporator fan motor grommet might get damaged or torn, leading to excessive vibrations. When inspecting this component for wear and tear, always remember to check out other adjacent parts and wiring for damage. When buying an evaporator fan motor grommet, always check a user manual or contact your vendor to get the correct part number to avoid the hassle of reordering. When installing the grommet, have your technician spin the fan blades to see if the fan moves freely. Any signs of rigid movement might be a pointer to damage to the wiring or connectors.

Compressor Noise

Most commercial freezer rooms have a fan-cooled condenser coil near the compressor at the back bottom of a fridge. The fan helps to circulate air through the condenser coil. Moreover, a fan forces heat through the drain pan for purposes of evaporating defrost water. An inspection of the condenser fan could reveal if it is the real culprit. For safety, always make sure that you disconnect a refrigerator from the power supply outlet before an inspection. The first thing to check is any form of obstruction such as dirt and debris. Also, it is good practice to clean the area regularly to reduce the chances of dirt accumulating on a fan. The other thing to look out for is damage to a fan motor, which might be causing the noise. A worn-out fan motor should be replaced immediately to reduce the likelihood of your freezer room being too noisy.

Reach out to a company that offers refrigeration repair if your refrigerator is making unusual noises.
