I want a 'warm' fridge

02 August 2013 - 08:14 PM



I need an open commercial display fridge, that will be used for pre-made sandwiches. These sandwiches will only be in the fridge for a maximum of 8 hours, but I don't want them to 'feel' cold.


Basically- 2' (degrees Celsius) is too cold. Are there any commercial display fridges that will allow me to set the temperature to say 5 or 6 degrees celcius? 

Newbie- bought a large open display fridge

So I went on on a whim and bought a commercial fridge for a business I'm starting. It's quite daunting!  :wacko: 

I knew it was a risk when I bought it, but the buyer assured me the fridge had worked fine last time he used it (over a month ago). Even with delivery, the price was absurdly low.

It was transported from about 90km's away and it was stored upright. I have not turned it on.

I am not in a rush to have it all fixed up, as I have not opened my business yet.

It's the "IARP 180 Shelly" (link). Only difference is that my fridge has stainless steal above the front grills (others are while). 

1. Basically- what kind of thing am I in for-should I get it serviced now? Does it just need a good clean up? Anything to look/listen out for?

2. Should I turn it on? It's in my yard (will protect with plastic), so maybe it's better to try at night when it's colder outside?

3. It will be used mainly during the day (12 hours) then be empty overnight. Is there any benefit in switching it off overnight (to save energy)? Or would it be pointless as it would have to 'cool' itself back down everyday?

I plan to 'renovate' it quite a bit- but I can give more details about that later
