Customer Q&A Ask 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.
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.
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.

Depending on the model you purchased, simply follow all the steps that apply to your refrigerator or freezer. If your model has a mechanical controller, adjust the temperature dial. This is located inside the unit, on the ceiling. The coldest setting corresponds to the highest number on the dial. The warmest setting corresponds to the lowest number on the dial.

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.

The gasket is a vital part of any refrigeration equipment, locking cold air inside the cabinet. If the gasket is worn out or torn, your refrigerator or freezer is letting that cold air escape into the kitchen, and using more energy to compensate. Today we'll properly show you how to change a gasket on an Avantco GDC or GDS series merchandiser. Remove the old gasket starting at a corner, and pulling it out of the recessed channel one side at a time. insert a new gasket. Start at a corner, and snap the dart connector into the recessed channel, working your way around the perimeter of the door. Be sure the gasket has a snug fit and closes properly against the cabinet.

    Love this cooler! Holds a ton of stuff. Havent really seen a big increase in the electric bill either. Stays nice and cool. Only downside is that it's a little loud but not too bad.
    I am so glad that we bought these. They are very quiet and they did not cost very much to be delivered and installed for us. I definitely recommend that you buy these over other brands. We have trusted this brand for a long time and it has never disappointed us.
