What to do if Your Restaurant Extractor Fan Breaks Down

What to do if Your Restaurant Extractor Fan Breaks Down

If your restaurant extractor fan breaks, you’ll probably want to get it fixed as soon as possible. It’s important that your kitchen stays clean, hygienic and odour free, but if you don’t have any ventilation, the smells and gases will become overpowering and creates a health issue.

Whether it’s maintenance on your current set up or perhaps you are looking for a new or an upgrade altogether, there are experts who can help to get your business back on track.

Extractor fans are essentially important to a restaurant. They help remove smoke and odours from the kitchen to make a safer working and cooking environment.

A quick phone call to an emergency extractor fan services will usually sort out a problem within 24 hours and after hours. If the repair is something that needs to be done on-site, then there should be someone who can come out quickly so the problem can be resolved as soon as possible.  We tend to fix the issue in 2 to 6 hours.

You also want a cool environment for your customers and keeping the air moving is the best way to achieve that. But eventually, every fan will break down and needs to be repaired or replaced. However, there are two kinds of restaurant fan repair that you must know about – fan motor repair and complete unit replacement or upgraded:

Fan Motor Repair

Fan motor repair needs to be done to keep fans working properly. It’s relatively inexpensive because only the motor needs to be replaced, while the rest of the parts can stay intact. If the motor needs to be replaced, it’s important that you get a replacement with similar horsepower as the original. This way, it won’t put too much strain on your current wiring system.

It is recommended that you call upon a specialist if you’re not already qualified. The cost depends on its size, the manufacturer of the engine and power needs.

Complete Unit Replacement

Replacing the whole unit is something that people don’t think about doing until after they’ve had their old ones broken beyond repair.

If you’re having issues with your extractor fan or the motor, we can help with any of your needs no matter what brand you have. Fans we usually use: Flaktwoods, S&P, Helios, SystemAir, VentAxia,Elta and many more. Our friendly and knowledgeable engineers can provide you with the parts and information that you need to get your kitchen working again.

The pros of replacing the whole unit is that the fan will come with new manufacturer warranty and the fan life span will be expected to last longer than a normal motor replacement. Its always a good time to think of an upgrade when you are thinking of replacing the fan as this means you save money on the long run.
