Moving my fridge on it's side or at an angle


You can lay it down but if you do, when you stand it up, wait 24 hours before you plug it in to turn it on. The reason is because the oil in the cooling system has to settle after being layed down.

GE model GTS22WCP can I lay it on it's side or back to transport?


it is not recommended to lay an appliance with a compressor, the reason is that the compressor oil will run to one side and the appliance will not function properly. i have heard that if laid down the make sure to stand the appliance upright for several days before plugging it in.

Can you move this refrigerator by laying it on its back? and if so how long do you have to wait after you put it upright before you plug it in


Although it is not recommend to transport on its back, it can be done if you block the conpressor up and pad it.

BUT you should always let the refrigerator stand upright for 6 hours for just major tilts, so I would highly recommend 24 hours to be safe if you transported it on its back.

Will I damage the refrigerator by laying on side to transport.


Hi csmgen,

It is advisable to avoid laying a refrigerator on its side. The oil in the compressor can flow into the cooling lines when the refrigerator is tipped onto its side. When returned to an upright position, there is a risk that the oil will not completely drain from the cooling lines and the refrigerator will not cool.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I am moving and need to lay the fridge on its side, but have been told you cannot do so, is this correct?


You do not want to lay that refrigerator on its side because the refrigerant will leave the compressor and fill the system with liquid refrigerant where it should only be existing in a gaseous state, and if the refrigerator is tilted far enough over or lay-ed onto its side then the refrigerator will have to stand up-right and un-plugged for at least 24 hours before the liquid refrigerant will settle back down where it belongs, and then the refrigerator should actually function again if there was no other damage caused when moving the unit.

I am thinking on buying a used refrigerator. It's a KitchenAid Superba black side by side. Water and ice on door. This is the serial #4176358945 I can't locate it anywhere on the kitchenaid site. How...


Good day,
Thoughts on buying a used refrigerator.
1. Can you see the machine running at normal temperatures. That is, the freezer should be at 0 to 4 degrees and the food compartment at 34 to 39 degrees.(You'll need a thermometer) If not, have it corrected or walk away.
2. Does it it cycle on and off. It should be running 30 to 70 percent of the time. If any more than the high number, either have the problem corrected, or walk away.
3. Does it make ice, dispense it, and does the water delivery system work. Although sometimes easily corrected, repairs can become very pricey.
4. Can you transport it without the machine being layed on it's side? This is critical to the compressor.
5. Parts? If you have the model number as well, with both, call any large appliance parts house. Ask if they can order the bottom crisper drawer for the fresh food side. If yes, then your O.K.

I need to know if it is possible to transport side by side refrigerators laying flat. or almost flat. This will be a short move for about 1/2 hour.


Hello, Yes you can move your side by side laying on it's back..it is most important though that when you have it in it's new place you leave it unpluged for 24 hours so the oils can run back into the compressor. If you have any other questions please feel free to comment again...Mike
