Yes but use good judgement when doing this and don't plug the refrigerator in for a few hours after standing it back up.

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.

I want to purchase a 9.7 cubic foot refrigerator. Can it be moved by laying it on it's side or must it be moved upright?


No, you you really shouldn't lay a vapor-compression type refrigerator down since it is possible for the oil in the compressor to run out into to the refrigerant lines. It would void warranty. I have moved many used units on side, let them stand for a while before starting.
So your taking a chance if you do. A truck with lift gate works well

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.

Carry refrigerator laying down in an SUV


The reason that it is not recomended to lay a refrigerator down on it's side is because of the oils in the compressor.

When you lay the refrigerator down on it's side the oil can get into the lines and cause problems.

because you have already done so, stand the refrigerator back up and let it sit for 48 hrs and give it a try.

If you half to move a refrigeratror on its side, the best thing to do is inspcect the compressor and see witch side the main lines come out and lay the refrigeator on the oposit side as not to allow the oil to get in those lines.

Maytag Side by Side Model GS24C6C3E


Refers weight several hundred pounds. Yes, you can move on a trolley, just do not lay flat without noting the refrigeration piping as it exits the compressor. You can only lay the refrigerator on it's side where the piping is pointing up.

Can you lay a maytag on its side /back?


You can lay a refrigerator on its back. If you need to lay it on the sides, try not to do it in an angle greater than 20 degrees.

The user manual should indicate how to handle the appliance for moving and installation.
