Good day,
If it's being delivered by an appliance company, they know that the machine has to be transported upright. So no. You should be able to plug it in as soon as it's set up.
IF the machine is transported on it's side, then yes, a minimum of 24 hours is necessary to get the oil back into the compressor.

Error Code SY CF wire in ice caddy is exposed and when I removed the ice caddy, the code came up and now the fridge and freezer will not cool.


In some model years, the defrost timer was installed in the icemaker. So, even if the icemaker itself is inoperable, it must remain plugged in to the unit to operated the compressor.

I have a ffa90 futre fridge & bottom frezzer. the fridge is frezzing the food in the door & in the fridge. have tryed water in botles & they get ice on it .in the door the food frezzers so


Find where the supply air is coming into the fridge part. It comes from the freezer and could easily be supplying -18 air direct to the door. This would give you a 2 in the fridge but anything in the direct air path could freeze.

Is it okay to transport a new fridge on its side or back?


The key here is that you must let the unit stay upright for a period of time BEFORE you plug it in. So, yes it is ok to transport it on its side. Let the unit sit in its correct position for 4 hours or so and you should be fine. The issue is the oils and freon (or equivalent) that must be allowed to pool in the bottom before you attempt to run it.

Hello fergust
Welcome to Fixya,

You said, I have just purchased this unit and switch it on.After some 3 minutes error message appeared on the front door screen . Message ---- ER CF Neither fridge,freezer or ice maker are working. What is the problem.


Did you turn the refrigerator and freezer on to the proper cooling adjustments as in the user manual?
Is the ice maker hooked up to the water line and in the on position?
Did you use the free help line if you are doing it your elf?


While I look it up, you can try to reset the system by plugging the fridge for 5 minutes, or if you can not reach the plug, then throw the breaker for 5 minutes.
Not less than 3 minutes. That is why I sad, 5minutes.
Usually this will do it! let me know as I look up the error codes.
