We repair all commercial salamanders’ electric, natural gas and LPG and we carry parts in van stock for many manufactures including:
Reduce repair costs with planned preventative maintenance
Our maintenance schedule
Dismantle and grease taps, clean burners and venturis, check and adjust gas pressure as necessary, check and adjust gas burner pressures, check condition of thermocouples, check calibration of thermostats and carry out soundness tests as necessary.
Check operation of control panel switches and elements, visual check of internal wiring and connectors, carry out earth continuity and insulation resistance tests carry out soundness tests as necessary.
Energy Saving Tips
Do not turn up the flame too high.
Keeping your range clean, when burners become blackened from heavy use, they can absorb a lot of heat, reducing burner efficiency. If they are clean they will reflect heat more effectively to the cookware.
Considerable gains can be made if staff know how to use equipment in an energy efficient way. Operator training will save significant costs on energy bills.
The energy consumption of a burner is strongly influenced by the user’s way of cooking. For example some chefs use 50% more energy than others cooking the same meal just because of their style of cooking.
Switch off equipment when it is not needed. By providing good staff training they should know how long a piece of equipment takes to reach a required temperature.
Check thermostats regularly to ensure efficiency.
Most of the faults that affect gas ranges involve the supply and ignition of gas in the burners. Regular maintenance will avoid larger, more expensive repairs and keep them in service
Clogged burners are a common problem with gas ranges because foods spilled on the burners block the gas ports and prevent ignition. Clear the holes with fine wire.
The flame of gas salamander burners should be steady and slightly rounded, with a light-blue tip. The flame should be quiet and should respond to adjustments made at the control knobs.
Most burner troubles can be quickly solved by adjusting the air shutter mixer plate. If the flame is yellow, it's not receiving enough air. If the flame is high or makes a roaring noise, it's getting too much air.
