Can I transport one of your 2 door Fridge/ freezers laying on its side.


only transport a fridge or freezer on it's side if the upright transport is NOT an option.
any chiller using compressed liquid/gas and placed on it's side should be left for 24 hours to settle before powering at the mains, this will allow the coolant time to sink where it should be and prevent the pump (& chiller) from failing.

I have a kic KTF295 fridge. i just need the amount of gas to charged it in grams. I thank you


The refrigeration engineer who will check your fridge for leaks, ensure no moisture is inside, sufficient lubricant is added and finally regas and seal the system will have literature to refer to for the correct gas quantity.

Kenmore Model No. 253.53322302 side-by-side not cold enough. Incidentally, fridge was unplugged in garage last 2 years until plugged in 2 months ago. Fridge stays at 38 F and Freezer at 27 F, so ice...


Since your fridge/freezer has been in storage the gas has settled, did the fridge/freezer get put on its side at any stage during the move?
This could have caused leakage out the breather pipe, have a look at the condenser at the back of the fridge, down low, you will see two hard pipes coming out of the tank, one leads up into the fridge the other doubles over, is open ended and facing downward, this is the breather and gas can escape from this pipe when the appliance is tilted to far over.
Chances are high that you will need to service this appliance.
its a good idea not to turn on immediately after moving. giving the gas time to settle again before turning on.
It could be the door seals need replacing as they can go hard over time when just sitting and no longer form a good seal on the door.

My kic fridge have 2 compartments. Freezer and fridge. only the fridge part dont work help please


The freezer is where the heat is removed from the box and cold air should circulate from the freezer into the refrigerator section. Something must be blocking the vent between the two. There is only one cooling unit; it cools the freezer and is also vented into the fridge for sub-freezing temperatures.

I have a KIC 223l. I moved into my residence yesterday and its not cooling. The moving took 5 min while it was lying down. I immediately switched it on when i got into my room. Its been on for less th


Hiya, u should leave a fridge and freezer after moving it at least 24 hours before switching it on because the gases need to settle. If it has been switched off perhaps you need to check the plug just in case the wires have loosened. hope i was of some help to you kind regards

Put refrigerator in storage for 8 months, doesnt cool now.


Did you switch it on immediately after returning it to your home? If you did the unit has probably burned out because the oil/gas had not yet settled in the compressor after the fridge had been tilted. After a fridge has been moved, it should be allowed to stand for a minimum of three hours before being switched on again.

Hi did anyone get back to you on this? I have a KIC Fridge and it does the same... take out the top door shelf/rack but then you MUST unscrew the light (cause otherwise your light never goes off and your food doesn't stay cold) cause the top shelf/rack in the door switches off the light... anyway... once the top shelf is out, the door will close better.... not sure how else to fix it though...

Fridge KIC 223L- FRIDGE NOT COLD ENOUGH


Gas; which also means that it has a leak that must be repaired and fixed. You cannot  buy refrigiation gas unless you have a license from the EPA.
