Customer Q&AAsk a Question

What if my Avantco cooler doesn’t seem to be getting cold enough throughout the cabinet?
Make sure that you are loading it properly, and not overloading it. This unit is designed for cans, bottles, and similar items that naturally enable good airflow within the cabinet. Overloading the cooler with cases and boxes will interrupt the airflow and negatively impact the unit’s performance.
Can this unit be put on casters?
Due to the narrow footprint of this model, adding casters would make it unstable and increase the risk of your unit tipping over. This item is only available with the included adjustable feet.
Does Avantco warrant this item for use in a food truck?
Avantco warrants new equipment sold to food truck customers to be operational for a period of 30 days from the date of delivery if installed and maintained correctly.
Are there any temperature specifications to keep in mind when installing this glass door unit?
This unit has a maximum ambient temperature rating of 90 degrees Fahrenheit. However, high humidity environments may cause excessive condensation and ice accumulation in the unit and on its doors.
I haven’t heard of R-290, R-600a, R-513a, or R-448A refrigerant before. What is it?
R-290 (also known as high purity propane or CARE 40) and R-600a (also known as refrigerant grade Isobutane or CARE 10) are hydrocarbon refrigerants. R513a (also known as Opteon XP10) and R-448A (also known as Solstice N40) are HFO (hydrofluoroolefin) refrigerants. They are being used as an eco-friendly refrigerant by some manufacturers in response to the EPA’s Significant New Alternatives Policy (SNAP) Program. Read more about this program in our blog post on Refrigerant Regulations.

This black swing glass door refrigerator works great in our cafe! We use one for drinks so customers can easily see our options and one for individual meals and salads we sell as well. Great quality!

This cooler was just what we needed. It shipped in a timely manner and arrived undamaged. The shelves are adjustable and it has different temperature settings. Have had it for several months now without any problems. Also is very quiet when running which is nice since it used in a customer setting. Had the power go out in our building and once restored it didn't take long for the temperature to get back to where it was in the cooler. Would recommend.

I bought 2 on faith and I am so glad that I did. They are smaller but they work perfect in the smaller space that I have. I am able to fit in quite a bit.

Heidi R. from Chocolate Cow Bakery on 05/21/2018

Ordered this item for retail items in our deli, unfortunately the cooler does not stay in the 30s as advertised. I have it set ok 33 which is as low as it goes and it is constantly in the low 40s.

Scott G. from KBG DELI on 11/24/2021

I owned cafe. I'm using this refrigerator for milk. I can stock 24 of 1 gallon milks. Working very well and LED light is also very bright. It is small but working very well.

Wang S. on 10/28/2020

Great addition to shop boosted our sales up 52% . I wish now I had bought the bigger one as we frequently run out of room for all our treats.

Connie W. from I Live For Dessert on 09/27/2020

THis is a nice fridge for a compact space. It can keep about 4 or 5 cases of drinks. The only down side is the shelves. Have to put something on them when stocking bottles or they will wobble on the wire rack.

Vicki from Fergy's on 03/14/2020

This merchandiser is extremely quiet. It is also extremely energy efficient. This refrigerated merchandiser is cheaper than used ones in my town. I added plus member so I could get the free freight. Paid for itself.

Rumi J. from Old Town Kokopelli Cafe on 11/21/2019

This fridge must be reset to the 4 degree temp range you prefer or it will remain >41 degrees. If you set it lower it will stay compliant. it is a bit noisy when the fan goes on but it's nicely lit and a great narrow size for a slim space.

Michelle S. from Reine LLC on 08/31/2019

Absolutely love this unit! Holds temperature as described and looks amazing. Perfect for our plastic bottled cold-pressed juices. We definitely recommend this display refrigerator to anyone looking for a midsized merchandizer.

Aileen S. from Zeal Pressed Juicery on 07/15/2019

Perfect appliance! It is not loud, and we can put up to 80 bottles! We use it in out yoga studio. The design is great, it came up in perfect shape, no scratches or anything broken. The temperature range is perfect for our use as well.
