The coolant in the fridge should settle after about 1 hour. Then just turn it on as normal. You should hear the pump start up and it will start to cool the unit.

New fridge coming today...


Good day,
If it's being delivered by an appliance company, they know that the machine has to be transported upright. So no. You should be able to plug it in as soon as it's set up.
IF the machine is transported on it's side, then yes, a minimum of 24 hours is necessary to get the oil back into the compressor.

Why my kenmore refrigidair heatup after moved to a new location


Hi,
Hopefully you read my tip frist and transported it the right way, but since your having trouble probably not.... If you laid it down on its side you have oil in the system where it cannot get out and is plugging the pipes so the compressor cannot run...
Try to let it off ofr about 12 hours before trying to plug it in again...then if it runs... only let it run a few minutes and then unplug it for an hour or two...do this a couple of times and then it will be okay..

Can you lay a refrigerater down flat to transport it


Yes as long as the coils that carry the freon is located on the top side of the compressor when laying down. Look at the lines on the compressor. You should see 2 of them. 1 larger than the other. Imagine you are tilting the refrigerator. If the lines are on the right side you can it down on it's left side ok. If they are on the left side you lay the fridge down on it;s right side. Hope this helps.

Kenmore fidge not getting cold


transporting fridge items on the side mixes up the oil and the gas together, inside the compressor bottle at the back, this should never be mixed, when you move fridge appliances you should always stand appliance where it is going to be for 24 hours before switching back on to allow the gas and oil to settle and separate back apart again. many engineers may tell you this does not matter and you can lay items down etc, this is absolute bull and must not be done as for allowing it to stand 24 hours, the opinion is mixed, but common sense tell you, if you move something, let it settle afterwards, and the longer you give it to do so the better OBVIOUSLY sorry there is no diy repair
