Weather strip on back door needs repaired. Starting mid year 2007 cold hold temperatures are going to be 41 or lower. the measured temperature of the walk-in refrigeration external is 55 and the internal temperature in 42 which is higher than 41 Max required by the Health Department. The door on the walk-in does not close all the way also. The sanitizing cycle on the dishmachine has a measured ppm of less than 50 and a temperature of over 140. Manufacture specs state that the machine should be at 50 ppm at a temperature of 120. check all cold hold units for thermometers. Make sure sanitation buckets have a chlorine concentration of 50 ppm measured with pH strips.
