Clear instructions for cleaning plug-in refrigerators.

This is how you clean the condenser of your plug-in refrigerator

The compressor of plug-in refrigeration equipment takes replacement air through the condenser. The condenser collects dust and debris from your shop. That is why it is good to clean the condenser at least once a month. With the help of the video, you can see how to clean the condenser correctly. You can find the condenser in a slightly different place depending on the device brand.

The example video was made by our principal, refrigeration equipment manufacturer ES System K, and the refrigeration equipment is the Carina pastry display case.

After turning off the power to the refrigerator, gently vacuum the device’s condenser cell and make sure not to damage the condenser. You can use a brush or a vacuum cleaner to gently remove the debris. Note! Do not use water to clean the condenser.

A clean condenser breathes better and the compressor uses less electricity. Maintenance also has a big impact on the lifespan of the refrigerator, because a clean condenser puts less strain on the compressor. Equipment warranties often exclude defects caused by insufficient cleaning of the condenser.

Plug-in refrigeration equipment must be defrosted regularly according to the refrigeration equipment manufacturer’s instructions.


It is good to clean the device regularly:

  1. Turn off the power of the refrigerator
  2. Empty the device of products
  3. Wait until the device reaches the ambient temperature and the vaporizer has melted (depending on the model, 5-10 h)
  4. Remove dirt and all debris from the furniture
  5. Check and clean the drain
  6. Wash the surfaces with a mild detergent and dry the wet surfaces with a dry, soft cloth
  7. Empty any detergent and excess water from the evaporation basin
  8. Start the refrigerator according to the manufacturer’s instructions
  9. Only use the refrigerator after the device has reached the desired temperature
  • place the products systematically and carefully
  • do not overload the cold area, check the filling limit marked on the units
  • an air gap should be left between the products
  • products may not be placed over shelves or over air intakes
  • make sure that you do not block the air circulation of the refrigerator with the products
  • make sure that the cold chain of food is not broken during cleaning and that products warmer than the operating temperature of the appliance are not placed in the refrigerator
