Weidenfeller Refrigeration is a family tradition.
Rick Weidenfeller, owner of Weidenfeller Refrigeration, used to ride along with his father on service calls and accompany him to the shop on Saturdays. Rick has learned everything he knows from his father. At just 12 years-old, Rick started to help out in the shop. He was handed a torch and given the opportunity to solder and sweat copper fittings.
Rick is a 4th generation refrigeration technician. Just recently, he completed a search and discovery of equipment and installations his grandfather did in the 1940s and ’50s. Rick’s grandfather was a pioneer in ammonia refrigeration and taught his son, Rick’s father, everything he knew about the trade.
Rick has done an excellent job of carrying on the family trade. He has the same commitment, expertise, and convictions that both his father and grandfather had.
Prior to taking over the family business, Rick worked for a company that handled the installation of commercial and industrial blow pipe for local factories, manufacturing plants, and machine shops. He’s also worked in the concrete construction industry. To say that Rick knows his stuff when it comes to the trades would be an understatement!
As his father’s business continued to expand, the need for informed, committed, and proficient technicians increased. This is what ultimately lead Rick back to the family business!
Weidenfeller Refrigeration continues to grow rapidly. When Rick isn’t on a service call or doing an installation, he’s at the shop refurbishing equipment. He completes continuing education on commercial refrigeration to remain sharp and knowledgeable about the business! Just like Rick following in his father’s footsteps, Rick’s children are following in his. His family is actively involved in the day-to-day operation of Weidenfeller Refrigeration.
Weidenfeller Refrigeration is a family-owned and operated business. Not only are they a family, but their customers are too!

We have been using Rick and his son from the Freezer Depot for several years now. They handle everything form our preventative maintenance, new and used equipment sales, to warranty work and repair work. Equipment never seems to fail at a “good” time and we have always had a quick response and work completed at a fair rate.
Rick has been a great resource for me in figuring out the changing refrigeration needs of my small business. He always has a good selection of units, great service, and straight, honest answers. And he delivers!
Fast response time! Knowledgeable staff! Very professional and easy to work with! Cost effective! Weidenfeller Refrigeration has been my sole provider of service for the 4 industrial coolers and 1 industrial freezer on my blueberry farm for the last year. Always available at a moments notice and consistently shows up in my time of needs. Emergency after hours service was also available to me! They will take the time to explain the problem in a way anyone can understand, offer different solutions, and leave it to the customer on exactly how to handle it. Rick has even saved me money several times by maintaining several wear and tear parts rather than just replacing them. 5/5 would recommend to friends, family and other industry professionals.
Rick and Tammy, we are so glad to hear that you like our pork! You are more than welcome to give us an order and we will have it ready whenever you can make it down. It was great meeting you both and the freezer runs great! We just love it and I know the customers like being able to pick out what they want, helps with compulsive buying too! LOL. It looks so nice full of pork! Blessings to you both as well and we hope you have a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving. 🙂
I just received a new Migali Mega Top prep table / cooler from The Freezer Depot. I saved over 20% off of the traditional brand names and like this unit better than the (2) named brand units I currently have in my kitchen. This new unit is awesome!
We purchased a used freezer from The Freezer Depot and was very happy with it. We did run into a few problems with it which Rick came out and addressed in a timely manner. After a couple of times Rick chose to replace it with a upgrade he had at his facility at no cost to us. We really appreciated the service and commitment from Rick to stand behind his product and resolve any open issues, thanks again.
Just wanted to say thanks for coming out to Ann Arbor to take care of the problem with our freezer. I took your invoice to the other company who had misdiagnosed it, and they gave a full refund of the charge for that day. (I’m still out their other fees for the Kelvinator that we traded in to you, but oh well.) In the future we will call a refrigeration tech in our area as you suggested, not heating/cooling. Thanks for the help and if you need any testimonials for your website we can provide one 🙂
Thank you for your great service. We struggled with our freezer not working correctly until you came and figured out we had a couple of issues that needed corrected with the unit. The unit is working fine now. Thank you.
I have been doing business with this company for over 3 years. They service all of my coolers every 6 months or so to make sure they are working properly. I have bought 3 coolers over the years some new and some used. The level of service and promptness to service calls is top notch. Great family owned company to work with!
Rick provides personal service and timely repairs. I use a lot of refrigeration in my business and trust Rick to maintain it. He is fair and values the relationship side of the business as well. I have also purchased numerous freezers from him that have saved me thousands over buying new.
