Can this freezer be laid on it's side or back to transport? Thank you.

Lay down a shipping blanket or an old blanket and transport the freezer on it's back.

Doesn't run, starts a rattle noise when plugged in then stops quickly.

YES! You need to wait at least 24 hours before running the unit if you laid it down. It needs time for the oil to run back down to the compressor. Keep me posted.

Picked up dehumidifier and transported it to another location. I laid the unit down on it's back. I let it sit overnight before attempting to turn on. Plugged in and the switch clicks but unit does not...

It may simply be the case of the bucket not being reinstalled properly or that the float valve in the bucket is stuck in the up position, from lying on it's back. Turn the unit OFF & unplug it, before checking these 2 things.

Hope this helped you & thanks for choosing FixYa.

Moved unit, wont get cold

did you transport it upright or laying down.... depending on who you talk to you will get a different answer... i have been in the appliance business for 18 years and have to say the more i hear they are transported laying down the more i hear troubles... either way after transported or moved they should be left sitting for approx. 24 hours to allow all the oil to settle back down,,,also could have developed a leak in the sealed system one of the refrigerant lines leaking.

What causes my fridge to run hot? It thinks its an oven! It was working fine prior to transportation, after which it was left for three hour prior to switching on when it ran hot.

I believe it may have been laid down during transport. Leave it unplugged for another 24 hours and allow the compressor oil to return back down to the compressor. This is a very common problem if laid down on side during transport. After this time replug the power cord and listen and feel to insure warm air blows from bottom of refrigerator and cold air in freezer. The oil is to thick and heavy to be pushed through the capillary tube. Just be patient and not try to push the time getting it to cool again as the compressor will continue to overheat if oil remains in the cap tube. Thanks Sea Breeze

Used refrig was laid down in transport from one location to another. Now the unit won't cool..

Hello there
a refrigerator needs to stand up straight for at least 12 hours after it has been laid down if it has been more than i hour to allow the refrigerant to settle back in the accumulator if you just plug it in you have a good chance of destroying the compressor or damaging it
I would recommend first having the unit serviced to see if the refrigerant level is low and if it is this is good get it recharged and than test it out and hopefully it will return itself to it's normal cooling like it did before if not than you know your compressor needs to be repaired ok
I hope that this has been very helpful for you
Best regards Michael

False . If it was delivered laying on its' side , back , or front , 24 hrs is necessary . If delivered standing up , no need to wait .
