Today, I write an article to show you how to check and repaired some troubleshooting about air curtains. Before it, it is necessary to understand the following two questions, they will help you do better troubleshoot work.

what is an air curtain and how it works?

Air curtains, sometimes also called an air doors, As the core component of the air curtain, the motor drives the fan wheel to rotate and blows out an airflow at the air outlet. This airflow forms a barrier-free door, which can effectively isolate the environment and temperature inside and outside the door. People and vehicles can enter and exit freely. Air curtains can prevent more than 90% of heating, cooling air, dust, and flying insects from entering the door.

3 commons problems and solutions

Okay, let’s check what’s the function problems of air curtains. Of course, there are only some common problems related to air curtains. If there are other function problems that cannot be solved, please remember that our experts are always at your side. You only need to pick up the phone to contact us or give us mail.

Air speed decreases after operation a period

The air outlet is blocked

Please clean the air outlet with clean water and a damp cloth. After cleaning, turn on the air curtain to blow away the water.

If there have grease at the outlet of the air curtains, please clean it with a non-corrosive detergent, or use warm water instead of cold water, the effect will be better.

After cleaning up, please adjust the angle of the air guide to maximize the efficiency of the air curtain.

Wind wheel dust layer or grease accumulation

Remove the wind wheel (refer to “How to take down the faceplate”) to check the fan blades. Dirty fan blades can cause insufficient air circulation. The wind wheel is inefficient.

Clean the dust filter (this is extra parts, only for some models)

If your air curtain has a dust filter, please remove it, and then (please use a neutral detergent and water) clean it. After finished clear, reinstall the dust filter back in place.

We generally recommend that the cleaning cycle of the air curtain is 3 months, but if the dust layer is particularly large, or the oily smoke is particularly large, we recommend that the cleaning cycle be shortened to 1-2 months
