Does the rule about not storing or transporting refrigerators on their sides apply to water coolers as well? If so, what will I need to do if I have transported my water cooler on its side?


I believe you are to stand it up correctly and wait 8 hours before plugging it in, this allows refrigerant and oil to settle.

Doesn't run, starts a rattle noise when plugged in then stops quickly.


YES! You need to wait at least 24 hours before running the unit if you laid it down. It needs time for the oil to run back down to the compressor. Keep me posted.

Can you move this refrigerator by laying it on its back? and if so how long do you have to wait after you put it upright before you plug it in


Although it is not recommend to transport on its back, it can be done if you block the conpressor up and pad it.

BUT you should always let the refrigerator stand upright for 6 hours for just major tilts, so I would highly recommend 24 hours to be safe if you transported it on its back.

Kitchen Aid refrigerator is making a very loud noise!


when you transported this unit did you lay it down or stand it up? If it was layed down then you should of waited at least 24 hours before plugging it up again to give the oil in the compressor time to settle back down. Actually either way it was transported it still needed the 24 hour rest time. So if you automatically plugged it in after transportation you could have messed up the compressor. Let it set unplugged for 2 days then plug it in and see what happens. If loud noise persists then you know the compressor is shot. Goog Luck.

Just bought it and put it on its side


Hi the rule of thumb is keep the fridge in the up-rite position for at least the same amount of time that the refrigerator was laying down to help any oil in the lines to drain back into the compressor before plugging it back in.. But I like to wait 24hrs to be on the save side..hope this helps
