Customer Q&A Ask a Question

I haven’t heard of R-290, R-600a, or R-513a 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) is an HFO (hydrofluoroolefin) refrigerant. 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.
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.
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.
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.

The lighting in any glass door merchandiser is vital to ensure your products look their best. Today we'll show you how to properly change the lighting on an Avantco GDC or GDS series merchandiser. Before doing anything else, unplug the unit. GDC or GDS units purchased in 2015 or before use bi-pin T8 fluorescent bulbs. Units purchased in 2016 and after have LED lighting. This is 20", 24", 40", or 48" long LED strip, depending on the model. We will show you how to change both types in this video. For fluorescent units, pull the top socket out horizontally from the light fixture. Pull the bottom socket out the same way, holding it firmly to keep the bulb from sliding out. Place the bulb on a level surface and remove the sockets from each end. Remove the bulb from the plastic sleeve. Place the new bulb into the sleeve and replace the sockets. Make sure the prongs in the bulb are secure in the sockets. Place the new bulb into the cabinet, starting with the bottom socket. Once again, be sure to support the bottom socket while installing to keep the bulb from sliding out. Inspect the new bulb to be sure it is secure, and turn the unit back on to ensure the light operates properly. For LED units, begin by unscrewing the collar and unplugging the light strip. Using a flat head screwdriver or other tool, apply pressure to the brackets, gently leveraging the light strips until it snaps out. Once the old light strip is free, secure the new light strip into the mounting brackets. Plug the new bulb into the socket at the top of the unit and secure it using the collar. Inspect the new bulb to be sure it is secure, and turn the unit back on to ensure the light operates properly.
