    Heat usually causes freezers to break down...
    last week my freezer just stopped running. I called in a repairman and he replaced the fan. I came from a weekend off and the fan is running but the freezer was at 50 degrees. I lost over 50 lbs of meat and seafood. So I left the restaurant and took a tour of the town to find meat so I could open for service.
    I know its the thermostat which would cause the fan to burn out because it could never reach the low temp.
    I'm just venting my frustrations... I don't feel bad for the loss of money I just feel bad for the poor shrimp and steers that lost their lives for nothing.

    Aww way bummer all around!

    It's a pain in the rear to have to deal with, then there's the wasted time, money, and animal lives. Freezers can be a big pain in the rear. Mine ended up leaking overnight due to a loose tube and it pretty much flooded the living room, ruining the carpet in there and causing some serious havoc.

    Here's to hoping things get back in order soon!

    I've gotta a party of 40 coming in tomorrow and they want 40 shrimp cocktails and I have no shrimp... the shrimp won't come in until 4pm and so I've got to get it shelled and deveined in an hour.
    not to mention the 40 spring rolls and the vegetarian special request that I have to fill.

    Dude, did you just say "venting?"

    Sorry about the inconvenience! That's a real bummer - for me, I mourn the loss of the steak.

    I suppose all you can do in that situation (with the shrimp) is just make everything else before the shrip get there. Luckily, as far as I know, the shrimp don't take part early in the creation of the dish. How did it all work out?

    oh, this is great... I go in yesterday and my refrigerator's compressor is frozen. One big block of ice. No fridge and no freezer. Repair guy gets there and says "it's iced up."
    no kidding.
    He can't look at it until it thaws (he's coming back today).
    Fish came in at 4:45 and the party was at 6:00. Made 50 lobster and mango spring rolls and shelled/deveined/cooked/chilled 200 shrimp in an hour and a half. I let my sous chef handle the service (which was just presenting the shrimp on the plate) and I went and purchased a small freezer from Home Depot. All that time spent playing tetris as a child helped out... I fit everything from my big three door freezer into a tiny household use chest freezer. The fridge I was able to pack ice in salt and keep the temp down.
    You gotta love it.

    Funny, thing is half way through this mess I got a phone call from another restaurant offering me an executive chef position. What timing... I'm angry and fed up then I'm offered a new job.
