They are being used as an eco-friendly refrigerant by some manufacturers in response to the EPA’s Significant New Alternatives Policy (SNAP) Program.

How to Program a Carel PJEZ Controller on an Avantco Refrigerator

Learn how to use a Carel PJEZ controller on an Avantco refrigerator to set the low temperature limit.

Cleaning your refrigerator condenser coils every month is essential for maintenance. Refrigerator coils accumulate a coating of dust over time, which makes your unit work harder. If your refrigerator isn't getting as cold as it should, or if it's using too much electricity, it's probably time to clean your coils. Begin by unplugging your refrigerator, and make sure the door is shut to keep food at the proper temperature. Use a screwdriver to remove the grill. Once removed, use a coil brush to thoroughly clean the coils. Use the crevice attachment on a vacuum cleaner to remove any extra dust or debris. When cleaning the coils, be sure to follow the direction of the fins with the coil brush and vacuum, rather than going against it. This helps ensure that you will not bend the fins on the coils. Once the coils are clean, re-install the grill. By taking the time to clean the coils in your unit, you can decrease energy costs and increase the longevity of your refrigerator!

Here's some basic settings you can make to your Avantco refrigerator in your restaurant. If you want to adjust the temperature, you hold set for one second and you'll see your low temperature limit. This unit is set to shut off at 33 degrees. If you want to have it shut off at a warmer temperature you can adjust it up. But it will not go below 33.

    A lot of issues with this refrigerator, thankfully they were resolved but it did cause unnecessary stress. I also wish I would have know about the temperature range before purchasing. For example if you set your refrigerator to 33 degrees it will stay at 39.9 because there is a 7 degree range.
    Thank you for your review, Ricca! We are sorry this Avantco SS-1R-HC 29 inch Solid Door Reach-In Refrigerator has not worked well for you. A Customer Solutions Representative was happy to assist you with your concern. If you have anymore issues in the future, please don't hesitate to contact us.

    I am very disappointed with this Avantco refrigerator due to the fact the compressor has failed in less than 16 months after installation. The unit that I had previously lasted for about 18 years before I had to replace it. I did replace fan motors and recharge the coolant over those years but the compressor never failed. I am glad to have the 5-year warranty on the compressor but didn't expect to use it so soon. Makes we worried about the future.
    Thank you for your feedback! We are sorry your Avantco SS-1R-HC 29 inch Solid Door Reach-In Refrigerator was defective. Corrective action has been taken and a Customer Solutions Representative will remain in contact with you about this.
    Like many others in the review section, my unit has also had compressor failure within the first 2 years. A commercial refrigeration service company established that the parts are still under warrantee. However, when they ordered them, they are on back order with no idea when they would be available. I have now been without the only source of commercial refrigeration we had. Granted, we’re a smaller operation…but without the ability to hold briskets prior to smoking, we’ve lost thousands of dollars because we cannot cook the volume without the holding capacity. We’re still trying to get the status of the parts and have no idea when it will be operational...losing money every day.
    Thank you for your review, Cody! We are sorry this Avantco SS-1R-HC 29 inch Stainless Steel Solid Door Reach-In Refrigerator has not worked well for you. A Customer Solutions Representative will contact you soon!
    We were very happy to get this refrigerator. It fit just where we wanted it. Easy to set up. Easy to clean. It did come with a good size dent in the side, but that does not affect the operation at all. Shelves are nice and strong. Caution - does shuts tight and seals tight. Can be a little hard to open. Would buy again.
    This cooler worked great until it we had it for 14 months (2 months past warranty). It stopped holding the correct temperature. It has been a headache trying to get in touch with the company that handles the warranty in the case that it is the compressor (which has a 5 year warranty). There are also very few refrigeration companies in our area that are licensed to purchase the type of refrigerant needed for this cooler. After reading other reviews, it seems that these problems are the norm for this model, around the same time frame. Super disappointed with the product and even more so with the service level provided when it stopped working properly.
    We appreciate your review, Mariel. We wish this Avantco SS-1R-HC 29 inch Solid Door Reach-In Refrigerator would have worked out for you. Our Customer Solutions team will remain in contact with you about this.
    This refrigerator stopped cooling after 15 months, 3 months past the warranty. I had to call for service and they found the capillary tube was blocked and had to be replaced. This required the refrigerant to be evacuated and the unit to be recharged. Our total bill for the repair was over $800 because it took over 5 hours to complete. A commercial refrigerator should last longer than 15 months before needing a major repair. I have also purchased an Advantco freezer before the refrigerator stopped working. I sure hope I get better results from the freezer.
    Thank you for your feedback! We’re sorry you did not prefer this product. For recommendations, please contact our Customer Solutions team.
    I purchased this unit in 2018. It didn't last 8 months and the compressor went out. Webstaurant sent a technician out and couldnt fix the problem. So they replaced the whole fridge. Needless to say 13 months later on the second fridge now the evaporator has gone out . Within the replacement of the second fridge, I purchased 2 more of the same fridges to go into my mobile food trailer. I have contacted Webstaurant and they will not stand behind the unit due to it has gone out of warranty of 1 month expired past the due date of warranty. So needless to say It is gonna cost me$1700 to repair, These fridges as far as I am concerned are a piece of junk. I wouldn't purchase or will not be purchasing any more of these units from them. I am building more food trucks , but will buy my equipment name brand and from someone else.
    Thank you for your feedback. We’re sorry this product did not work well for you. We do not recommend using refrigeration equipment on food trucks due to variable temperature changes, the small amount of space, and inconsistent power supply from generators. For recommendations, please contact our Customer Solutions department.
    We are a small seasonal business. Only open about 5 months per year. Fridge worked fine for the first 2 summers. We started it up this year and it worked for about a week and now won't stay cold. Avantco has no recommended service providers near me and so far everyone I have called does not work on R290 units.
    Thank you for your review, Amber! We are sorry this Avantco SS-1R-HC 29 inch Solid Door Reach-In Refrigerator has not worked well for you. A Customer Solutions Representative will contact you soon!
    As a small business owner I am extremely disappointed with this unit and the company as a whole. I purchased a refrigerator and after 13 months the evap coil started to leak propane refrigerant which is a FIRE HAZARD. I called to have the unit serviced under warranty and they told me callously that i missed the cut off by less than one month. Also, the part is back ordered 3-4 months, so even if i wanted to have it fixed outside of warranty it will be 3-4 months and an estimated. I have been a longtime Webstaraunt customer but this has made me shop elsewhere. Please be wary of Avantco products. It seems as if they are meant to only work for the warranty period. then POOF.
    We appreciate your review, Spencer. We wish this Avantco SS-1R-HC 29 inch Solid Door Reach-In Refrigerator would have worked out for you. Our Customer Solutions team will remain in contact with you about this.
    Excellent quality. Make sure you are aware that is vacuum seals shut after you open, otherwise you will have a hard time opening it after. Just wait thirty seconds.
    Fantastic Fridge - I have 3 of them, they all work great , good magnets on the doors and very easy to clean. For the price - the product cannot be beat.
    This replace a a much smaller freezer. helps out so much having the extra room. Delivered very fast no problem so far been a few years now
    This fridge has great storage capacity for relatively small footprint that it has. We don't have a lot of space for over sized fridges, so this works perfectly. It is easy to clean and holds temperature well.
    Having a startup cafe, we needed all equipment for our cafe and this one is just right. It works for what we need. We purchased 2.
    This is the perfect size for our kitchen. So far everything works great and I am very happy with it. Free shipping on this to boot!
    This refrigerator is AMAZING! So easy to clean, stock ingredients, get parts for it, add shelving - legitimately such a great investment! We have a 400 square foot location and needed a fridge that was not too wide and taller to compensate - this was the one!
    Excellent product. Quick cooling, heavy duty construction, super quiet. Will be replacing our older refrigerators with Avantco products. Our Maintenance team loves the bottom mount compressors and coils.
    This reach in is very durable. We use it to store our milk in. It keep the product at the temp we need it at.
    Great fridge and looks amazing, except the dent. They did give me a discount for the dent. Holds temp perfect and holds a lot of product.
    The price is so good, and the shipment is very fast. But it was very hard to take off from the pallet. The quality is very good too.
