When you laid the fridge on its side oil got on the head of the compressor and into the refrigeration system. the compressor is a vapour pump if you started it with oil still on the head of the compressor it most likely destroyed the compressors reed valves and piston.

If you already have moved it wrong, you can sometimes get it working byplugging it in and unplugging it a number of times with an hour or so inbetween.

Moved refrigerator about 2 miles it was laying on its side for about 20 minutes... got it to the second location have plugged it in and it does not work... what could be wrong????


When you laid it on it's side all the oil inside the compressor went up into the evaporative coil lines. The oil bypassed the seals inside the compressor. You should NEVER lay a fridge on it's side or back. It will never work right again, sorry.

Alot of noise interference when I start the engine or turn on the refridgerator in the boat. Is it possible that there is a noise filter in the radio and this has gone bad??


It is [ossible if your unit came with a noise filter. Some times the wiring can get moved around and come into contact with other wires and cause interference. The best bet is to remove the radio and see if the radio wires lay next to other wires. If this is the case, you can greatly lower noise by moving the wires away from the non radio wires. If they must lay across each other, the less contact they have the better. MOve the wires so the cross each other at a 90 degree angle rather than laying next to each other side by side.

Water dripping sound coming from new refridgerator


Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman";} Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan. This is the only source of water if nothing else is connected. Are you seeing and water anywhere.

Whirlpool refridgerator is leaking water on the freezer side (side by side refridgerator) onto the floor. The ice machine was overflowing with ice and has frozen ice in the ice maker that won't budge. We...


WAS IT LEAKING FROM INSIDE THE FREEZER OR FROM BOTTOM OF FRIDGE? ONCE IN A WHILE YOU NEED TO TAKE OUT THE ICE BIN AND DUMP ICE OUT AND CLEAN IT. HOW CAN THE ICE MACHINE OVERFLOW WITH ICE WHEN THE ICE IN THE TRAY WON'T BUDGE? NEED CLARIFICATION. SOUNDS LIKE YOU EITHER HAVE A BAD ICE MAKER MODULE OR THE SOLENOID FOR THE ICE ON THE WATER VALVE IS BAD.

I just moved my dads fridge to my house and after about 7 hours I smelled a burnt plastic smell. I smell it on and off.The fridge is still cooling.When i moved it I layed it down.


When a fridge is layed down the oil in the compressor will flow into the refridgerant lines and will have to be stood upright until the oil can return the the comrpessor. It may be too late for yours but I would try cutting it off for a day before trying it again. This may not be the cause of the smell so keep a nose on that and try to locate exactly where it's coming from.
