Is Turning a freezer off for a week bad for it?


Hello, I have an ice cream shop and 3 large deep freezes. Half way through the week some freezers are empty. Am i able to turn them off for a week until the next delivery without hurting them?

It won't the running of it.
But it might start to smell a little funky inside.

Also depends on what type of refrigeration unit it/they are -- if just a "standard" self-standing freezer, no problem. If, otoh, they're part of a central ammonia chiller system or similar, not so easy, necessarily.

Why not? Just turn them back on well prior to next delivery. Also, are you aware that is better to keep freezers as full as possible? It is. Suggest you call the mfg.

Don't know how much of a problem the mildew would really be, but certainly if off for a week they won't be cold enough to keep the ice cream when get the new delivery for a while again.
He could always experiment w/ what would work but doubt will get much energy savings while having them cold enough to not have problems w/ the new stock...
