Adjusting the temperature on your GDC or GDS series unit is a simple process. Your unit has one of several possible controller options. 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.

Changing a Lightbulb on an Avantco Merchandiser

Changing a Lightbulb on an Avantco Merchandiser

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.

We can adjust it to run colder, all the way down to negative 10. Or warmer, it should go all the way up to positive 10.
