As the compressor has oil it it , it is best to transport it with the compressor the right way up so as to keep the oil in the compressor and not have it circulating through the ac system pipes
it circulates oil when running normally but as much that goes out with the gas so the same amount comes back in but when stationary and not correctly positioned , te oil will accumulate where it is not lubricating the compressor and so the compressor may run dry for a period until enough oil gets back through the system

Testimonial: "Thanks. I believe I can get to stay straight up. Is it okay for the compressor to run dry for a while?"

How do I move the refer forward so I can vacuum underneath. I have a French door model 10 years old

If it is a free standing refrigerator, it should have rollers on it to allow a straight pull forward. DO NOT TRY TO TURN IT SIDEWAYS or you will rip the flooring. Being 10 years old it probably indented itself into the flooring so it will take an extra effort to get the box to start rolling out of those dents in the floor. Kind of like going over a curb.

Just had delivered a logic fridge freezer 6months old is it safe to use straight away

If the fridge was transported standing up, it is safe to use right away. If it was transported on its side, I would wait 24 hours.

To transport a loewe spheros 42 plasma unit with rotating stand does the tv unit detach from the stand? I understand that the plasma tv should be transported in an upright position only is this true?

Yes, it should be transported in upright position.
When we moved, our moving company arranged a crating company to crate our Spheros unit. They built a crate around the TV and secured it in an upright position along with the rotating stand. They then put a tilt sensor (you get the serial number of the tilt sensor) to make sure that the moving people don't tilt the crate. They also un-crate it at your destination. The only problem is that the TV is already quite heavy to begin with (~180 lbs), and with the crate, it becomes almost impossible for the movers move it in perfect upright position....though our movers really tried hard.

My scanner could not start after transporting it without locking. SOME BODY LOOKED AT IT AND SAID THE PROBLEM WAS WITH THE MOTOR. HOW CAN I GET THE MOTOR.

Possibly the lock button got moved in handling - look under the front of the scanner for a small button that moves sideways - it will have a lock and unlock position. It may have moved to the lock position - that prevents the head from moving.

Panasonic PT-51G44 51 transporting?

No you should only transport it standing up to ensure the optics do not get messed up. I have seen peeps do this and nothing happens. I have also seen pros do the move on the back or the sides and it tears up the TV set. Good Luck
