The problem with refrigerant and compressors is that the compressors contain oil of some kind, when hauled in other than up right possession you run the risk of letting the oil out of the compressor and into the tubing where it will have to travel the whole refrigeration system before getting back to the compressor. If you try turning it back on the other side 180' from where hauled you run same risk. So after 20 to 30 minutes if the oil has not run back into the compressor (assuming it ran out) all that will be back is back. Try it and pray for the best..

Hope this explains what happens and helps you. Good luck And please rate me as high as you can. Thanks for using fix ya.

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.

Moved unit, wont get cold


did you transport it upright or laying down.... depending on who you talk to you will get a different answer... i have been in the appliance business for 18 years and have to say the more i hear they are transported laying down the more i hear troubles... either way after transported or moved they should be left sitting for approx. 24 hours to allow all the oil to settle back down,,,also could have developed a leak in the sealed system one of the refrigerant lines leaking.

What causes my fridge to run hot? It thinks its an oven! It was working fine prior to transportation, after which it was left for three hour prior to switching on when it ran hot.


I believe it may have been laid down during transport. Leave it unplugged for another 24 hours and allow the compressor oil to return back down to the compressor. This is a very common problem if laid down on side during transport. After this time replug the power cord and listen and feel to insure warm air blows from bottom of refrigerator and cold air in freezer. The oil is to thick and heavy to be pushed through the capillary tube. Just be patient and not try to push the time getting it to cool again as the compressor will continue to overheat if oil remains in the cap tube. Thanks Sea Breeze

Cool down period for plasma TV for transport.


I believe 20 minutest just enough. But when you bring it back from cold outside to your new home it have to stay/warm 2-3 hours before you plug it in.

If it started cooling your ok. If the compressor got real loud and quit you could be in trouble. The problem comes from the liquid in the system getting on top of the compresser piston. It doesn't always happen when a unit is moved.

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
