The fridge has to be set upright for about 24 hours before using again.  we set our fridge on its side to move and it did not work after we got to our new place.  we ended up getting rid of it.  our repairman said if we had let it reset itself, fluids and all, then plugged it in - it would have been fine --after 24 hrs.

How long does it take for my refrigerator to get cold after I tipped it over onto its side?


Its not a good idea laying any fridge down on its side. Especially if its been in use for a few years. Stand the fridge up and DO NOT turn it on or use it for at least 4 or 5 hours.. Refrigerant oil and any residue or dirt in the bottom of fhe compressor leaks out into the operating system of a fridge when you lay them down. You must leave it time to settle and the oil and dirt to sink back into the bottom.. If you don't, there is a real risk that oil or contaminants will block the capillary tube ( Small pipe in the fridge) If this happens, your fridge wont cool.

My propane fridge will not get cold


You have described an Ammonia refrigerator. The chemicals in the system are Ammonia, water, and hydrogen. In a crazy system of events, heating the bottom of the unit will cause the chemicals to seperate and then reunite in a complete cycle.
If you have never smelled a strong ammonia smell, then yes, the upside down thing will many times work.
The chemicals can become seperated in the wrong areas of the interior components.
Perform the upside down thing for 24 to 48 hours. Return to normal. Pause it for minimum of 4 yours and try again.
If the burner is working correctly, then you should see some results.

Kenmore top freezer. Bought it from a lady. Only


Was the fridge layed down when moving ? If so , did you let it stand for 24 hrs before plugging it in ? If you layed it down and didn't wait to plug it in , it's no good .
If you did not lay it down , remove the back panel and see if the compressor is running . If the compressor is hot but not running ,possible overload/relay bad . This is the piece that plugs onto the compressor . Also check that the fan that cools the compressor is working .If you remove the inside freezer panel , check to see that the freezer fan is working . Check to see if the coils are getting a light coat of frost on them .

GE Side By side doesn't cool and freexer frosts up


Most common problem on GE's is the defrost heater(s) has gone bad. They are a glass tube and when they go bad the tube will have a burnt or black color to it. A good heater will be clear. I bet that is your problem. Seems to be the problem about 90% of the time on GE not defrosting.

Fisher Paykel fridge stopped working


youre meant to if moved, let it sit for atleast an hour before turning on because moving it disrupts the gas inside. Did you do that?

Refrigerator will not stay cold


Bought a second hand fridge that was running well. We layed the fridge on it's side for moving and let it stand upright for at least 4 hours. The moving was only 45 minutes. The freezer is semi-cold but the main body of the fridge stays at aprox. 68 degrees. Any solutions.
