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.

Just had delivered a logic fridge freezer 6months old is it safe to use straight away


If the fridge was transported standing up, it is safe to use right away. If it was transported on its side, I would wait 24 hours.

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.

Kitchenaid fridge #KSCS25INSS hot door frame


There are heaters located inside the door frame, to prevent your doors from freezing shut, and also to prevent condensation on the outside of the appliance. It sounds to me as though that is where your problem is... Hope this helps

Need to make sure both fans are working and the compressors is running all the time the fans are. If not we need to check the compressor for overheating and look behind back panel in freezer for frost build up. Let me know if you want my help, Sea Breeze

Transported a fridge on its side, waited 24hrs, plugged in.


Transporting frig on side probably damaged the compressor due to the oil inside draining from bottom. Do you know if the bulbs were working before you purchased? If they were you may have damaged the door switch, easy fix, just replace. Compressor replacement should be left to a pro. Probably looking at a couple hundred. One other thought is you might have caused a gas leak during transporting, another job for a pro.

Just bought it and put it on its side


Hi the rule of thumb is keep the fridge in the up-rite position for at least the same amount of time that the refrigerator was laying down to help any oil in the lines to drain back into the compressor before plugging it back in.. But I like to wait 24hrs to be on the save side..hope this helps
