Re: Can Model PACR12-GE be transported on its side with...
Most ac or refrigerators and freezers can not be moved moved in any position other than in the upright position. The few that can will tell you in the owners manuel. The ones that can after you move them you must put them in the upright position and leave set not plugged in for between 12 and 24 hours.

The following is the GE moving instructions. If you have started before the 24 hour rest period and the unit had been rotated from vertical have the compressor inspected.
FREEZER MOVING INSTRUCTIONS
Please use the following steps when relocating an upright or chest freezer:
Disconnect the power cord from the wall receptacle.
Remove the food, defrost, and clean the freezer.
Use blankets to protect the freezer finish from scratches.
Place the freezer on its side for moving only if you have no other choice.
When transporting a freezer, keep it in an upright position. If transporting it in an upright position is not possible, lay it down on the compressor side of the unit. Be careful to secure the door to prevent it from opening.
If it has been transported on its side, set it right side up in its final location and allow the freezer to sit for the same amount of time that it was on its side (24 hrs max.). Do not plug the unit into the electrical receptacle without allowing this settling time. The unit can be damaged if it is plugged in prematurely.
If the unit was transported in an upright position there is no waiting time required.
I have a GE Profile Side by Side Model PSCS5RGXAFSSThe lights work but it does not cool (or work) in the Fridge side or the Freezer side. The front door panel numbers illuminate but, will not control any setting. What's wrong? The unit is 4 years old.
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.
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.
Dust on the condenser coils can cause overheating, observe safety precautions then clean coils. Switch off the unit before you clean them. If the problem persists, test the compressor for overheating. Overheating will cause many problems with cooling ability. Leave the unit unplugged for 3 hours and plug it in again. If it starts working, the compressor is probably overheating (Observe cautions with food going bad). A simple cause of the problem might also be that there is not enough airflow Lack of airflow is the number one cause of compressor problems and thus an owner purchasing another unit for hundreds of dollars when you can fix it for free.There should be at least several inches distance between the sides and walls/cupboards/ceiling.
There is an in-line fuse mounted in the line supplying the power to the ice-maker. It is in the wire clipped to the side, change out this fuse asap. It is actually a 20-amp fused, associated with the grounded electrical supply.

TIME TO CHANGE YOUR FILTER
While your on the back of the system, please check the filter. There is a filter in the back of the fridge in the upper right hand side. If you do not change it, it will slow down the frig and burn it out permanently.
Check to see if the fan in the freezer is working. It moves cold air from the freezer side to the refrigerator side. If it is not working or if there is an obstruction in the duct work the issue could be there. Fans and motors are cheap and easy to replace.
Turn the unit off, check the bottom rear of the unit and place a shallow pan under the drain outlet and remove the rubber plug to drain the condensate out of the unit then replace the plug and turn the unit back on.
