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.
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
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...
There is not central power switch fitted to this model, check:
1. All cables are connected at both ends.
2. The wires to the control panel are connected, to check this remove the plastic cove that covers the top hinge of the door with the control panel and make sure that connecters are correct. Of course you should make sure that the fridge is unplugged before you do this.
let me know if that solves your problem.
Also remember to allow your new fridge to settle after moving it before plugging it in as the gas takes up to 12 hours to settle.
