Tip & How-To about Refrigerators
One of the most common mistakes made while moving a refrigerator
is shaking the compressor, thereby ruining it.
The motor inside the compressor is usually sitting on springs
to allow it flexibility when it runs and to cut down on the vibration.
Especially in older units. The motor inside is wrapped in coils of insulated copper wires. When the compressor is moved it causes the motor to
bang against the inside of compressor, Causing the insulation to break
off and short out.
Just move the Ref or Freezer very slowly and carefully.
Over grass bumps is the worst. It takes a lot longer to move it but it is worth it.
