Question about Frigidaire GLHS36EESB Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

I recently moved a "new" side by side frigidaire from dallas texas to lubbock texas. It was "laid on its side for the first three hours of the move and then stood up for the last three hour trip. Upon unloading it was plugged in but dosn't cool properly. The ref. area cools slightly but the freezer not at all. I understand that the compressor oil is probably displaced by the move. How do I get it to work? Do I need a service repairman? How do I check to see if the compressor is ruined? Thanks, Jerry in San Antonio, texas

Should have let stand for 24 hours beofer pluging in, quite possible that compressor oils havealready been pumped up into the evaporator area, in which case will problably cause major restrictions in coolant.. try letting stand for a while and then replug, anything other then this youll need a service man

Brand new kenmore elite has been runnuing for an hour and it feels warm inside


When you moved it into place was it ever laid on it's side? If so you have to let it stand up right for a few hours sometime over nite before running it. Make sure all the control are set to the highest setting to get it up to temp then move them down were you'd like them.

My refrigerator wont work after laying it down to move it. What should I do?


I've done that before and there's no hope for it. Once you laid it down the freon got a air pocket in the compressor and it will no longer work. Guy from sears told me that laying them down ruins them.

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.

Whent it was moved to my new house, it was laid down for awhile,not won't get cold?


Hello. When a fridge is laid on side the fluids in it flow away from necessary areas. Always stand the fridge upright for at least 48 hours before plugging it in. My recommendation is to unplug it and let it sit for 48 hours and then plug it in again. regards, Joe

HI, If it was only on it's side for short time (hour) you will be ok. Just let it rst upward hour or so. If it was on side for hours, let it rest for 12 hours or so.
You should be ok.

Circuit City ''esa'' TV picture curves in on sides


Curving in on ( hour glassing ) the sides is usually the indication of a bad regulator IC. Since it occured after a move, you may also have a bad solder connection or smal crak in the board. To check for cracks ( assuming you have unplugged the power and are relatively comfortable doing so) shine a flashligt from the top of the board ( with the components on it ) and examine the bottom of the board. If a trace is broken you can often see it this way

Maytag washer pours water out bottom instead of filling up


Check the water pump for physical damage from the move. If the washer was laid on it's side, you may have either snapped off the pump outlet or broke the pump body. You may have broekn the body of the water inlet valve fill flume. A visual examination should provide a lot of insight as to what the problem is.
