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?

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.

The fridge andf freezer is not cold at all


This refrigerator has an adaptive defrost control which has been an issue. You can tell if frost is building up on the back wall of the freezer hence a deferost problem. For an immediate fix, unplug for 4 to 6 hrs with freezer door open, plug in it will work for about 10 days till you can buy this part. It is located in the top back upper fridge side two phillip head screws and 4- 1/4" hex head screws, unplug when installing. It may have to be defrosted again if doors are opened too often.

Fridge in storage for 4 yrs, now not cooling


Good day,
After that much time, be sure the fan motor in the freezer compartment is running, as well as the fan motor on the back bottom behind the cover by the compressor. Either could well have frozen up after 4 years of storage.
As well a refrigerant leak could have developed because of the time frame. However, if it is less then 5 years old, the sealed system would still be under factory warranty.

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.

Freezer quit working


I suspect when you lifted or moved the freezer, you tilted the compressor such that the oil washed out into the refrigeration lines. Common when people tilt refrigeration equipment the wrong way.

Warm fridge cool freezer


Hi folks,
IS, the freezer so packed full with packages that they are covering the air vents in the freezer that must be open to share the circulation with the fridge?
Let me know!

If not keep calling the server and pay him only when he fixes it!
