Unplugging the refrigerator

Hi
We have moved to place where we don't need the refrigerator for while. Is it ok to unplug it and just let it sit w/ the door open? I heard that you need to run refrigerators so the seals don't dry out. Then I heard that is an urban myth.
Thanks!

In my opinion it is ok to turn the refrigerator off for a while. How ever it is also good to just turn them on and run them for a few minuites from time to time. This helps keep the system lubricated internally. Any long period of being shut down can cause little problems. As for the door gaskets the gasket is designed to last the life of the refrigerator. If it would make you feel better you can use a light application of Petrolium Jelly on the gasket just to be sure. I would also recommend a box of Arm and Hammer baking soda on the inside just to protect against oder's.
