Tip & How-To about Refrigerators
Moving a GE, Hotpoint or some Kenmore refrigerators can be more of a job than you dreamed.
Did you know that the defrost heater of some of these models are made of glass and wire? They really are! Glass and wire!
A little bit of a rough ride or a bump can break it. So if you move a fridge and 2 weeks later it does'nt work you probably have broke the defrost heater.
Thats not all! Surprise surprise here is the big news. YOU CAN LAY A FRIDGE DOWN TO MOVE IT. Who would have guessed right? How many times have you heard that myth. Plenty I am sure. But its true you can.
Here is what to do. After you are finished with the move and the fridge is in the upright position,,,leave it up for about 6 hours before plugging it in which will allow enough time for the oil to flow back to the compressor so it starts pumping freon while the tubes are clear and you will be good to go.
Thats it,,,,I am sure this will help someone.
