What Do You Do When Your Restaurant Extractor Fan Breaks Down?

If your restaurant extractor fan breaks, you’ll be looking to get it repaired or replaced as soon as possible. It’s important that your kitchen stays clean, hygienic and odour free, so if you don’t have any ventilation, the smells and gases will become overpowering and create a health issue.

Whether you need maintenance on your current set up or perhaps you are looking for a new one or an upgrade, we have experts to get your business back on its feet.

Extractor fans are essentially important to a restaurant. A professionally fitted fan removes smoke and odours from the kitchen to make for a safer cooking & dining environment.

A quick phone call to an extractor fan service will usually sort out the problem within 24 hours and often after hours. If the repair in your restaurant 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.  Fan Services will fix the issue in 2 to 6 hours – contact us today.

We understand, you want a cool environment for your customers and keeping the air moving is the best way to achieve that. However, eventually, every fan will break down and you will need new parts or a new fan. There are two kinds of restaurant fan repair that you must know about – fan motor repair and complete unit replacement or an upgrade.

Restaurant Fan Motor Repair

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

It is recommended that you call upon a restaurant fan specialist if you’re not already qualified to carry out the work yourself. The cost depends on fan size, the manufacturer of the engine and power requirements.

Restaurant Fan 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 of fan you own. 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 repair 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. It’s always a good time to think of an upgrade when you are thinking of replacing the fan because this means you save money in the long run.
