Best bet is not to lie it down. i think if its upright at least 24 hours it might be ok but i wouldnt count on that.

SOURCE: SELL TV: HOW DO WE MOVE IT

Howdy,
The best way to transport the TV is standing up with the front secured to a 'side' of vechile. If you don't have that choice lay the TV down on it's face. With both make sure you have plenty of moving blankets.The side would be my last resort because of stability. DO NOT LAY ON BACK!!!!

Good Move, big IRISH.

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.

Moving my fridge on it's side or at an angle


You can lay it down but if you do, when you stand it up, wait 24 hours before you plug it in to turn it on. The reason is because the oil in the cooling system has to settle after being layed down.

The top section, fridge, is freezing up, we only had it 3 days


Read somewhere that refrigerators are not supposed to be transported on their sides - that they are supposed to be moved in an upright position and that if you have transported it like that you are supposed to let it stand upright for about 8 hours before using it.

Moved fridg to new house pluged it in dosen,t get coled at all!!!


If you had to lay the fridge down to move it? Then you have to let it stand upright for at least 24 hours before you can plug it in and use it or it won't cool, as oil will get into the coolant lines and foul the works.
If you didn't have to lay it down, then check for a switch and or harness under the front grill that may have got bumped out of adjustment of knocked the plug off.
I hope this helps you, and good luck.
