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.

Fridge warm, freezer has frost on back panel & is defrosting, fans work, just changed defrost thermostat, no air is moving from freezer side to fridge side, drain pan under fridge is dry


this fan needs to run when the compressor runs,check fan blade for being jammed by ice if you have this much ice on back wall as ice will stall motor,if no fan there will be no cool air to refrige compartment also the defrost drain tray will fill with water then freeze over which in turn floods the freezer floor and refrige compartments cause it cannot drain to the pan in the bottom

Hi my American Fridge Freezer, after moving it and starting it back up, it seems to be going up to its freezer limits digitally also fridge, but when we open it the fridge freezer, ant cold at all. Any...


You may have laid refrigerator down during the move causing oil to migrate to the evaporator. If this has happened leave refrigerator unplugged for about twelve hours so the oil can slowly seep back down to the compressor. Trying to speed this process up will slow you down and may cause the compressor overload to fail. Once the compressor is ready to start cooling you can leave refrigerator plugged in, Thanks Sea Breeze

How long should i leave my fridge un pluged after moving.


If the fridge was not laid down on it's side while moving (it stood straight up the whole way) then you can start it immediately. If it was horizontal for some length of time the wait about 2hr. Hope that helped you.

Hi,
Here is a tip that I wrote on moving refrigerators...if you did not do it thisway then you may well have ruined a perfectly good refrigerator.

Moving a Refrigerator What is thebest way

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.

Hi - I have to move a Daewoo upright fridge/freezer. It is too high to stand upright in my van, can it be laid on its side? Thanks


Yes, it can be laid on its side but when you get it to its location, stand it up and DO NOT plug it in for a few days to let the compressor oil run back down out of the system. After that everything will be fine.

After moving to a new home, the freezer keeps tripping the breaker every few days


My first instinct is to ask you, are you plugging this freezer into a GFI outlet, one which has a breaker switch as part of the outlet? If so, that is the culprit and not the freezer, as refrigerators and freezers will often trip this ground fault indicator because water can on occasion reach ground, which causes the breaker to trip on the outlet.

Test this by plugging the freezer into a non GFI outlet for longer than a few days. Nothing is broken and you dont need refrigerator repair service.

Freezer works, fridge does not. Also the sides of the fridge are really hot but not up the top near freezer section. Fridge has recently been moved. Thanks


Warm sides are usually caused by the condenser fan which is underneath around back not running. If it's not running when the compressor runs it will cause the problem you describe. You will need to remove the cardboard backing on the back of the fridge to access the fan.


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.


When it was moved, was it laid down? If it was it should be stood upright for 24 hours before being plugged back in.

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

Victory Freezer not working after a move


how long did yu wait before pluggin it in? When laid on its side the freon, and compressor oil migrate. You may have ruined the compressor by turning it on when there was not enough oil in it.

It is best not to set freezers on the side, but if you must, make sure you leave it for 24 hours to allow the oil to settle again before plugging in.

Food is defrosting in my hotpoint frost free fridge/freezer


Can you hear the compressor running? Is the fan inside the freezer running? It could be that a wire connection has come loose during the move. Was the fridge laid on it's side during the move? If so you probably have compressor oil restricting the refrigerant system. If compressor and fan are running you will probably need a qualified refrigeration tech to check it out.
