Today, we're going to discuss the importance and the procedure of cleaning your condenser coil on your Continental refrigerator or freezer. This is important for many reasons. Firstly, it will conserve energy, cut down on your service costs, and also add life to your compressor. It's always important to disconnect the power to your cabinet before doing any preventive maintenance. The first thing you want to determine is where your condensing unit is located. It could be located on the top of the unit, at the rear of the unit, or on the front. Now what you want to do is located the condensing unit and remove the front grill. Once the grill is removed, you'll see the condensing unit and the condenser coil looks like the radiator in your car and inspect for any dirt or paper. Using a stiff nylon brush, remove any debris in a downward motion and always go in the direction of the fins. Depending on the amount of dirt, you may also want to use a shop-vac and you can also pass a flashlight into the fins to see if you can see through or have any additional blockage. If everything looks good, reattach the grill and start your unit. If further information is needed, consult the operation manual on our website at www.continentalrefrigerator.com.

In this segment, we're going to discuss the care and the steps needed to replace the door gasket on your Continental refrigerator or freezer. It's very important to maintain your gaskets. On a regular basis, they should be inspected for any wear or tear on the sides or on the top. If needed to clean your gasket, use mild soap with warm water and a soft-bristle brush. If a door gasket is required, contact the factory or your supplier with the model and serial number of the case and that'll determine exactly the part number and the gasket needed. No tools are required to replace the gasket. Grasp the top corner or the door gasket and pull straight out of the retainer. Once the gasket is fully removed from the door, take the new gasket and line up the dart on the gasket with the retainer. Pushing with your thumb, making sure that the dart is in line. Once the gasket is in place, close the door, inspect for any gaps or sealing issues, and that's all that is needed to replace a door gasket on your Continental refrigerator or freezer. If additional information is needed, consult the factory or the operation manual, which can be downloaded on www.continentalrefrigerator.com.

Hello, in this segment we’re going to show how to convert your Continental undercounter or sandwich case from a door to a drawer. It’s always recommended to disconnect the power to your cabinet before service or modifications. In this segment you are going to need the following tools: a Phillips screwdriver, or a Philips adapter for the drill, a cordless drill with an eighth inch drill bit, and 6 Philips #8 truss head sheet metal screws as well as a pair of pliers not shown in the video to remove the vertical pilaster strips. Once the power’s been disconnected, open the door and remove the top and bottom hinge screws, set the door to the side, also remove the shelf and the side wall vertical pilaster strips. Take the four hinge screws that you removed, reinsert into the four hinge holes, top and bottom. Your drawer cage assembly will consist of 2 drawers and the cage with the center mullion that holds the drawers. Open the top drawer, slide the locking clip from the slide forward and down the back, and remove the top and bottom drawers and set to the side. Carefully lift up and slide the cage assembly into the door opening. Be sure that the center mullion is flush with the front of the case. Locate the six mounting holes in the cage assembly and take your eighth inch drill and drill into the plastic breaker covers. Insert the 6 Phillips screws into the predrilled mounting holes. Install the top and bottom drawer, locking the slide clip on right and left sides. Open and close the top and bottom drawers making sure they close properly and have a good gasket seal. I hope this information was helpful and if you need additional information, please contact the factory or you can download the operation manuals from our website, www.continentalrefrigerator.com.

In this segment, we're going to discuss the installation of the optional electric condensate heater with thermostat to take the place of the non-electric condensate pan that comes standard with your equipment. Electric condensate heater may be needed in high humidity and heavily used applications. It is always important with any piece of Continental equipment that has an open pan opening, that pans be left in the top section at all times. If pans are removed at night and that space is left open, condensation will accumulate and the heat from the kitchen will be drawn into that area and that may be the cause of your excessive condensation. If the electric heater is needed, it's easily installed. Remove the rear back cover, two Phillips screws at the lower section, lift the cover, and set it to the side. It's always important to disconnect the power to any piece of equipment before doing any type of work. Once the rear cover is removed and the power is disconnected, take your electric heater and place it in the same non-electric condensate pan that comes with the unit. Have the heater loose, facing the rear. Place it in the pan and the plastic tubing, make sure it's directed into the pan. You may have to adjust the length of the tubing by trimming it down so the plastic is not touching the electric heating element as this will melt. There's a provision in the lower section and that condensing unit area where the condensing unit plugs into the receptacle. One side is marked condensing unit and one side is marked vaporizer. This would be plugged into the side that's marked vaporizer and the extra, additional cord, you can coil that up and use a wire tie or electrical tape so that it doesn't interfere with the fan, go below the bottom of the box, or lay in the pan. Once that is done and power has been checked, make sure everything is tight, make sure there's no vibrations, and you can reinstall the rear cover. Once the rear cover is reinstalled, you're ready to plug the case in and it's back in operation. If additional information is needed, consult the operation manual or the website at www.continentalrefrigerator.com.

In this segment, we're going to discuss the calibration of your LED digital thermometer on your Continental refrigerator or freezer. It's always important to check the calibration before calling the factory or your supplier for service. This can easily be done by placing an accurate thermometer on the center shelf, closing the door for 10 minutes, and then comparing the inside to the outside. If the two numbers do not meet each other, figure out how many degrees you either need to go up or down and then calibration would be needed at this point. You would go to the top of the thermometer. Hit the right hand center, and you'll see CAL, which stands for calibrate. Hit it a second time and you'll see a number. If you need to increase the temperature on the thermometer, you would go to the upper left hand corner. To decrease, the lower left hand corner. Figure out how many degrees you need to change, push that the number of times, and go back over to the right until you see the desired number that corresponds to the inside. You may have to do this a few times to get it to the proper temperature and once that is achieved, let the temperature settle for another 10 minutes. Do a second check and if everything matches, calibration is complete.In this segment, we're going to discuss the calibration of your dial thermometer on your continental refrigerator or freezer, which is easily done with a small, slotted screwdriver. The most important thing is to make sure that the calibration is correct before you contact the factory or your supplier for any service. If service is need, there's a tag on the inner wall of the refrigerator or freezer with the model and serial number. First, place the thermometer on the center shelf if you know it's accurate and calibrated properly. Close the door and let the temperatures settle down for at least 10 minutes. Once that is achieved, you take the small screwdriver, put it under the bezel of the thermometer, and pry off. Once the cover's removed, take your slotted screwdriver, place it in the center screw of the thermometer, and turn it either to the right or to the left to make it colder or warmer. Once the thermometer is set to the proper temperature, let the box settle for another 10 minutes. If you're happy with the two readings, replace the thermometer bezel cover and you're complete. If additional information is needed, you can consult the website at www.continentalrefrigerator.com.

How do I know if this unit will fit under or match the height of my ADA-Height counter?
Many manufacturers offer their refrigeration equipment in several different height options to best meet your needs. Here's a breakdown of how we classify these different heights:
Counter Height: Work surface is more than 34" high; standard height unit.
ADA Height: Work surface height is 34" or less; complies with ADA regulations.
Low Profile: Work surface height is less than 32"; designed to fit under most ADA-height counters.
If the unit you are purchasing does not have a flat top, such as a worktop or sandwich/salad prep table, it may affect whether or not it will align with certain countertops. To ensure that the product will meet your needs, please reference the product's literature and specifications.
Why is there a step in the interior of this undercounter unit?
This unit’s refrigeration system is located in the lower rear of the cabinet, causing the step in its interior. The step may decrease the inner depth of the cabinet's lower interior versus what is listed as its overall interior depth, so please check the unit’s specs and diagrams to ensure it will accommodate your storage needs.
What does the “N” mean in the newer Continental Refrigerator model numbers?
This is a representation that the unit is using a “natural” or "Hydrocarbon" refrigerant. This would include both R290 and R600a refrigerants. They are being used as an eco-friendly refrigerant by Continental Refrigerator in response to the EPA’s Significant New Alternatives Policy (SNAP) Program. Read more about this program in our blog post on Refrigerant Regulations.
