When i moved my kic chest freezer model kc0021-Aa, I heard an light explosive sound and now the freezer does not go on.


The following is the GE moving instructions. If you have started before the 24 hour rest period and the unit had been rotated from vertical have the compressor inspected.

FREEZER MOVING INSTRUCTIONS Please use the following steps when relocating an upright or chest freezer:
  1. Disconnect the power cord from the wall receptacle.
  2. Remove the food, defrost, and clean the freezer.
  3. Use blankets to protect the freezer finish from scratches.
  4. Place the freezer on its side for moving only if you have no other choice.
  5. When transporting a freezer, keep it in an upright position. If transporting it in an upright position is not possible, lay it down on the compressor side of the unit. Be careful to secure the door to prevent it from opening.
  6. If it has been transported on its side, set it right side up in its final location and allow the freezer to sit for the same amount of time that it was on its side (24 hrs max.). Do not plug the unit into the electrical receptacle without allowing this settling time. The unit can be damaged if it is plugged in prematurely.

If the unit was transported in an upright position there is no waiting time required.


Hope this helps?

Can you move a magic chef refriederator on its side


It is best not to lay a refrigerator on its side. The compressor oil along with any contaminants will flow up the tubing and when you plug it back in, this can damage the compressor. If you must lay it down let it sit upright for a while before plugging it back in.

Can I lay down an Imperial Heavy Duty Upright Freezer for transport in a van or must it be upright in a pick up?


It should be upright, but if you must, after standing it up again - don't plug it in for couple of days. When it's down, oil in the pump moves quickly, but when it's upright again it takes it's time. If you plug it in too early, pump will overheats and you will need a new pump. Hope it helps.

When we moved the refrigerator will not even work now


When you moved the refer was it AT ALL TIMES in the upright position or did you lay it down horizontally at anytime during the move. Anytime a refer is allowed to be in the horizontal position, it should not be plugged in for a minimum of 8 hours after set in the upright position.

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.

Moving a Eurocave wine cooler laying flat


the reason you should not lay a fridge/freezer on its side is that you will get air bubbles in the cooling pipes,which you may not be able to get rid of when you turn it back upright.I have moved loads of f/f, in the past and have had no problems,as long as you give the unit at least 24 hours to right itself.....and keep the door(s) closed while it is "resting"
