Hi welcome to Fixya, you should plug it into a different wall outlet because the current wall outlet may not be working.If the wall outlet is working fine the the problem is with either the power cord or the fridge motor, you would need to check them one at a time.

    This mean the problem is with your fridge power cord gone bad or the motor stop working suddenly, you should get it check soon as possible.

We moved an Amana Fridge on it's side...how long should we wait before plugging it back in?


Anything with a compressor in it should always be left for 24 hours standing upright then you can plug it in

Hi - I have to move a Daewoo upright fridge/freezer. It is too high to stand upright in my van, can it be laid on its side? Thanks


Yes, it can be laid on its side but when you get it to its location, stand it up and DO NOT plug it in for a few days to let the compressor oil run back down out of the system. After that everything will be fine.

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.

Whent it was moved to my new house, it was laid down for awhile,not won't get cold?


Hello. When a fridge is laid on side the fluids in it flow away from necessary areas. Always stand the fridge upright for at least 48 hours before plugging it in. My recommendation is to unplug it and let it sit for 48 hours and then plug it in again. regards, Joe

hi did you have it laying down when in transit ...if yes you needed it to be standing upright for at least 8hrs befor turning on .... if you switch it on its more likley you req a new fridge :( they oil from compressor would have gone through your back panel pipes.... if it was stood up then change your stat...hope this helped.

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.

Can I transport a whirpool side by side refrigerator / freezer, laying it down on it's side for 5 hours?If when I reach my destination I stand it upright for 48 hrs. before I plug it in.


The short answer is yes, but the key is to make certain not to plug in and start the fridge for at least 24 hours once it is upright and in the final location.

The reasons manufacturers caution against transporting/moving a fridge on it's side also has to do with the possibility of damaging the doors and hinge plates. The big reason is because people tend to want to start filling up their new fridge with food right away, so they plug it in once it's in their house.

If a fridge has been shipped on its' side, the compressor oil tends to wick/flow into the piping and can cause a failure, if not allowed to drain back into the compressor when the fridge is placed back upright.

Although not the best way to transport, you can do it if you allow time for things to settle back before powering it up.
