Customer Q&AAsk a Question

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.
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.
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.
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.
Can this item fit through a standard height 80" doorway ?
Due to the height of this item, it may not be able to fit through a standard 80" tall doorway when standing upright. Please consider the best means of entry before purchasing, or measure your entryway to ensure that you will be able to bring your order inside if the item cannot be carried on its side.

Cooler has enough room to fit several items. Easily accessible and displays products perfectly. Castor wheels make for easy moving. Nice LED lights make for easy product viewing.

This product does perform as advertised and is solidly built. The interior lighting is great and it holds temps fairly well. I really would love to give this product 4 or 5 stars. However, I can only give this product 2 stars due to the loudness of the unit. When the fan cycles on, which is about every 5-10 minutes, the unit gets as loud as 65-70 db. (I measured it.) I understand the unit needs airflow, but I've worked with minus 80 freezers that are not as loud.

Christopher N. on 02/23/2021

Took one star off because the compressor is relatively loud. Otherwise, it's a very nice unit and I am glad I made the investment. Easy to adjust shelving, well lit, and the casters are such a bonus. It has been in operation for close to a year now with zero problems. Arrived in excellent condition - well protected for shipping. Watch out though - make sure you measure your doors before you order. We had to really tilt it to bring it inside. My bad. I should have thought about it.

Andrea L. from LC Market on 02/09/2022

So far so good on this fridge. It does the job and was priced very fair for the size of the fridge. Quick delivery too!

Tarek M. on 01/23/2022

Very good cooler for the price. We have purchased this item multiple time and have been using them for years with no problem. Avantco is a great product just as good if not better than other Big name brands.

Jonathan B. from K AND J's ELEGANT PASTRIES LLC on 05/24/2021

Great to merchandise all of our beers and coolers. We ordered the bottle dividers (you have to angle shelves toward front) to keep bottles neatly displayed and forward facing.

Edwin S. from Shirley Maes Cafe on 01/08/2020

This fridge is great! It showed up in perfect condition and has worked well ever since. The lighting is very bright which is great for showing off merchandise.

Sally D. from Gammardella's Market & Deli on 10/01/2019

We have two of these coolers, and we really like them. We have them serviced quarterly with our HVAC, and we haven't had any trouble with them. I believe we bought our first one about 2 years ago and our newer one about 6 months ago. They are nice and cold, they look nice, and they are great for merchandising products.

Jon O. from The Glass Jug on 08/20/2019

Great company, I`ve owned this unit for about a year. Never shut down, and is currently running 14 hours a day. Awesome set up with a lot of space.

Tyler L. from Fit And Trim Nutrition on 12/21/2018

This refrigerator has been great, have had no problems at all thus far with it. We were easily able to replace the plexiglass at the top with our own and it was easy to install and looks great!!

Amberly M. from Never Fail MPS on 08/24/2018

Merchandiser looks great and so far operates perfectly. The only issue is that it can be loud and hot if operating in a smaller space.
