This is a tough question to answer without having more detail, but I'll try to cover most cases.

The rent portion would mostly be determined by the going rate for space in the area you are located. Look at square footages and published advertisements in your area and use that as a guideline. Utilities would be easy to determine if you had separate meters for the kitchen, check and see if you do, or check with the utility and see if they can add meters.

If not, then use historical bills to see how much use of the utilities there was during a period when the kitchen wasn't in operation. Make sure that if you do this, you multiply the use (kWh, gallons/liters of water, ...etc.) by the current published rates, don't go by the dollars charged on past bills.

Another way to do this would be just charge a percentage of the monthly revenue. You'd have to check and make sure that you were charging enough to cover the utilities, though. 5% seems a good place to start. This would allow you to profit more if the kitchen had a good month, and since utilities would go up/down as their sales went up/down, it would let you handle not having a separate meter.

Hope this helps, and best wishes!

What is the operating presesure and temperature for a r-134 commercial refrigerator

Those units are going to give you pressures corresponding to the surrounding area. A hot kitchen will get the head pressure up around 150-170 psi sometimes. The suction is going to be somewhere around 20psi give or take 10 psi either way. You can't trust pressure readings except for an indication that the compressor is pumping and you don't have a deep vacuum from a lost charge or plugged cap tube or blocked metering device. Always weigh the charge into the system. You cant be a hack hvac guy and help a guy by putting gas in his refrigerator. Commercial refrigerators are pretty touchy and don;t like to shut off if they don't have an exact charge. Don't take my word for it call True in St Louis they made the thing. Hope this helps and good luck.

Garland stove pilot light problem, again but different

I'm not familiar with Garlands. When I run into a similar problem with other stoves of that vintage (Wedgewoods, etc.) I trace the pilot lines piece by piece, from the manifold to the pilot burner, if necessary opening a connection or two to see where I'm getting gas and where I'm not.

Is there a needle valve for adjusting the pilot flame? Is there gas getting all the way to the pilot burner? When it's the pilot burner itself that's the problem, I take it apart, brush/blow/shake out the crud, and run a small drill (#79 or so) through the orifice.
