We bought a new upright freezer today, and had to lay it down in order to get it home. It was lying down for about 20 minutes. How long does it have to be upright before we can plug it in?

About the same amount of time that it was laying down
But the trick is to not shake the compressor and that when you
lay it down the freon lines coming out of the refrigerator should be on top or pointing up
The front should be scotched up 6 inches or so too, to help.
Good Luck

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.

FREEZER IS NOT FREEZING IT IS 18 MONTHS OLD. WE DEFROSTED IT AND IT FROZE AN ICE CUBE TRAY SO WE MOVED IT DOWN STAIRS PLUGGED IT N AND IT NOT FREEZING AGAIN????


It is possible to cause an air lock when moving an appliance by tilting it and then not allowing the refrigerent to settle before switching on. Try unplugging it and laying it on its side for a couple of minutes, then put it upright and leave it for 6 hours to settle, then plug it in again.

Layed down freezer to transport in car for long journey left 4 hrs before start up working fine freezing but side edge behind door seal feels quite hot since


this is normal until all the freon has had a chance to get recirculated throgh the system.
make sure the evaporator fan is also working in order to properly cool the freezer.

Can we lay a freezer on its side temporarily?


You can do it but be sure to let it stand upright for 24 hours before plugging it in and using it. The oil in the compressor will run out into the lines and block it. It needs time to drain back to the compressor.

Hot exerior walls in a brand new Kenmore 28042 upright freezer


There should not be a fire hazard but you should be concerned that the freezer could break down if it is not allowed to vent the heat it produces. The freezer is not intended nor designed to be enclosed The manual must indicate specifications for minimum clearances for rear, top and sides, and may even be indicated on the big yellow sticker on the inside of the door. The clearances must be respected or again, the unit will fail, and the warranty may be voided in such cases.

Since this is a new freezer it should be serviced by the people who sold it to you in order to avoid any warranty conflict. The fan blades of these units are of a slip fit onto the motor shaft. It is possible that the fan blade has come off the motor shaft.

Moving a Kenmore upright freezer


there would be a problem if you lay it down. it should be moved up right or max 45 degrees tilt only. oil in the compressor could go to the evaporator and clog it.

front handles could be remove only from the inside. you have to remove the plastic rack of the door and remove the insulation in order to see the bolt holding the handle.

tnx 4 using fixya,
