Leave it unplugged for at least 3 hours but I have a company policy that my employees not plug one in for 4 hours. Although 4 hours is a little overkill, I just want to make sure I do not have to replace a customers unit because of my employee getting in a hurry.
Please rate solution.

You can plug it in within 10 minutes, 45 minutes is plenty

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.

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.

I have a 3.1 cu ft regrigerator and need to transport it 800 milesaway. It willnot fit upright in ht e car.Can it be transported horizontally.


Yes it can. Rule is for every hous it is laying down it MUST stand up for that amount of time BEFORE plugging in. If you dont let it stand upright before plugging in it will destroy the compressor because the oil in the compressor runs through the lines when laying down. You MUST give the oil time to return to compressor or when you plug it in the compressor will not have oil in it and warp the internal components.

Any questions please comment back to me.

We are going to purchase a fridge. Can we lay it on the side or back to transport it home without any problems


Hello,

if the refrigerator is a new one it will be in a carton in order to protect it from scratching or having faulty .
On the carton you will see the description on it , just follow the instructions ,
But if the refrigerator does not comes with a carton you can lay it through it's side , that is the positions , because laying by the back side might break the gas pipe which will cause more damages to the refrigerator.
So lay it by it's side . Thanks and hope it help in solving the problem....

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.

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.

There should not be a fire hazard but you should be concerned that the freezer could break down if it is not allowed to vent the heat it produces. The freezer is not intended nor designed to be enclosed The manual must indicate specifications for minimum clearances for rear, top and sides, and may even be indicated on the big yellow sticker on the inside of the door. The clearances must be respected or again, the unit will fail, and the warranty may be voided in such cases.
