Question about LG LRSC26920 25.5 cu.ft. Moving on Up Side-By-Side Refrigerator

Victory Freezer not working after a move

I have a large industrial sized Victory Freezer that was moved from my house into my friends restaraunt. We had to lay it on it's side to move it and to get it into the restaraunt. There was no damage during the move.
I heard a leaking noise during the 24 hr period that we allowed the freezer to stand before plugging it in. It does not cool now.

Is this a common problem? What's the solution? Is it as simple as a refrigerant re-charge?

Re: 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.

Changing the opening side of the door

You will need to reverse the hinges, it should be the top for the freezer, and the one in the middle support, both the freezer and the large door, you will not only move this to the other side but you may have to turn it over, and the bottom hinge just move it to the other side. You will need to start with the large door, because the hinge support the bottom and top door, the bottom first, next the middle hinge, place the freezer door on the middle hinge and the top hinge to sesure the freezer door, move the handles, the holes for the screws will be on the other side with a little cover that you will have to remove just have to pull them out.

Moved refrig this morning and now it is not cooling... freezer works great

Hih, Check and see if something has stopped the condenser fan motor down by the compressor from turning. Sometimes this happens in a move.
Also make sure the controls didn't get turned to wrong settings. Make sure evaporator fan motor is working in freezer and that there is no frost building up on the rear panel.
Just some ideas to help you.
lease let me know if I can assist you further.

Model 550. Freezer is thawing. how do proceed?

Always list the age of your machine. First you have to determine if your freezer compressor is working. Find the manual, it may be hidden in the machine. Sometimes the defrost timer fails and the freezer coils load up with ice and no cold air can get to the freezer compartment. The defrost timer will be near the compressor area, it's about the size of a cellphone, has about five wires going to it, all in one plug. It has a small dial on it that turns only one way. Mark the dial with whiteout and check it after about an hour to see if it moves. It moves very slowly. If it does not move, replace it. I get my parts and help from

Dometic fridge

I would look for a ventilation problem. If the fridge is working at that level nothing wrong with electric. The unit needs air to move up and out the top to make the freezer work. It sounds like the air is only moving the wrong way out the lower vent. Careful it could just be a birds nest but it may be a large wasp nest blocking the roof opening.

Jenn Air JCD2389GTW Refrigerator problem

The auto defrost timer was broken, so my refrigerator repairman replaced it. The part is about $60. The bigger expense was the labor getting to the timer, which is in the upper right hand corner of the refrigerator within the plastic casing that houses the temperature control levers. He then had to remove the panels of the freezer and defrost the coils with a blow heater. It took several hours.
