Tips for Maintaining Restaurant Equipment Parts & Service

Blog | Feb. 16th, 2021 | By GP-PartsDirect

When it comes to keeping your kitchen up and running, it doesn’t matter if you have a small restaurant or work in the food production industry, you need to rely on your kitchen equipment to get you through the day. That’s why staying on top of restaurant equipment parts and service is a must! At GP-PartsDirect, it’s our goal to help our clients keep their facility running efficiently and effectively, which is why we’ve compiled some important information here.

Below you’ll find some of the best ways to keep up with restaurant equipment parts and service!

Tips for Fryers

For those with commercial fryers, it’s important to keep an eye on them by regularly performing duties such as:

  • Monitoring Your Fryer for Gas Leaks: A gas leak with your fryer can be a huge drain on energy, in addition to posing a potential health and safety hazard. Our service technicians recommend that you inspect your fryers every four to six weeks by spraying supply hoses with soapy water; if bubbles appear, there’s a leak.
  • Cleaning Your Combustion Fans: Cleaning your fryers’ combustion fans once a month will improve efficiency and prevent breakdowns.

Tips for Refrigeration Units

Your refrigeration units are designed to ensure that all of the food products you serve are of the utmost quality. You can perform your very own restaurant equipment parts and service checks by:

  • Inspecting the air filters
  • Checking the gaskets
  • Keeping your refrigeration units dry
  • Keeping drain pans and tubes free of debris
  • Cleaning the coils of your refrigeration units

If you find any issues or any of the components listed above need to be replaced, contact the team from GP-PartsDirect to replace them with a quality OEM part.

Tips for Ranges, Grills, & Griddles

Last but certainly not least, your oven ranges, grills, and griddles help you serve up hot delicious meals for your patrons. You can keep them in great condition by:

  • Inspecting Grease Filters on Overhead Exhaust Units: Large buildups of grease not only decreases efficiency by restricting airflow but can also pose potential health and fire hazards, so clean your filters regularly.

  • Clean Flattops, Burners, & Grates: A dirty oven is a health hazard as well as a drain on efficiency. Each day be sure to thoroughly clean away any buildup of grease or other food particles to minimize the need for service repairs and maintain a healthy environment.

    Hey Joe...I just wanted to say that I appreciate your quick responses to my questions....I appreciate that you take extra good care of us at Engels. Have a great Tues....


    Just wanted to drop you a line concerning one of your parts reps, her name is Linda Crimm. Linda went above and beyond trying to find a part for me as well as having such a fun and pleasant disposition. Linda sent emails and tried to track down a certain bracket that I needed and was very helpful by sending pics back and forth with me until we succeeded. I realize may be part of her job but I just wanted to let you know what a pleasant experience finding an elusive part. She was great! Thank you for having a great employee as well as being knowledgeable.


    Hi Ivan...I just wanted to take a brief second to let you know how much I appreciate YOU...I know there are times that I seem short in my emails and I don't mean to be but I am just trying to get stuff done and move onto the next.
