No. don't try to do this. you will get oil from the compressor into the evaporator. it will be very expensive to fix. if this happens then your unit will not cool properly

GE model GTS22WCP can I lay it on it's side or back to transport?


it is not recommended to lay an appliance with a compressor, the reason is that the compressor oil will run to one side and the appliance will not function properly. i have heard that if laid down the make sure to stand the appliance upright for several days before plugging it in.

I have to transport a refrigerator - Model # ED25PWXBW00 (side by side) approximately 100 miles. Can I lay it down? What will happen if I do?


As far as I know, you can transport a refrigerator laying down but you should leave it upright for 24 hours BEFORE you plug it in.

Can I lay down an Emerson 4.6 cu ft refrigerator to fit in my car to transport


Even though it's not the preferred method of transport, it's OK to lay a refrig down for moving, even new R134a if you pay close attention to the refrigerant lines.

Determine where the suction line runs up into the freezer. This is the largest tube connected to the compressor, and is usually (though not always) visible running up the back of the cabinet.

As long as the refrig is laid down on whichever side allows this line to stay 'high', there'll be minimal oil migration, and when you arrive at your destination, just stand it upright for an hour or so and it'll be fine. Obviously, the shorter the trip, the better.

If the suction line runs up the door handle side, just duct-tape the doors securely closed before you lay it down to keep them from opening and getting damaged. It helps to lay a block of wood under the top end, just to keep it inclined a bit, too.

I've been moving refrig's for some 32 years now, and while moving them in an upright position IS best, sometimes you just can't. I work out of a van, and have often laid both refrig's and upright freezers down for transport with no ill effects.

Need to transport an Admiral refrig about 20 miles to my home. Can I lay it on its back or side. It's a newer model, within 5-7 years old, I'm guessing. Any problems doing that/


Hi Bill

Its not the best idea to lay it down at all, inside the "pot" the compressor is suspended on 3 springs and it can get dislodged which wreck the compressor. However if you can lay it over at not less than 30 degrees from the horizontal (maybe in a pick up) and try not bounce it too much you should be OK.

IMPORTANT, VERY IMPORTANT, WHEN YOU GET IT HOME IT NEEDS TO STAND UPRIGHT FOR AT LEAST 24 HOURS BEFORE YOU SWITCH IT ON

This is because some of the oil from the compressor can get swirled out around the system when it's transported, if you do not give it time to migrate back then the compressor WILL SEIZE UP

Hope this helps

I am moving and need to lay the fridge on its side, but have been told you cannot do so, is this correct?


You do not want to lay that refrigerator on its side because the refrigerant will leave the compressor and fill the system with liquid refrigerant where it should only be existing in a gaseous state, and if the refrigerator is tilted far enough over or lay-ed onto its side then the refrigerator will have to stand up-right and un-plugged for at least 24 hours before the liquid refrigerant will settle back down where it belongs, and then the refrigerator should actually function again if there was no other damage caused when moving the unit.

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.

Is it ok to transport a refrigerator on it's side?


Not true. Refers since the 1950's are sealed units but for safety's sake let it sit for awhile after you move it.
