It is not a good idea to lay it on it's side. However it can be done and if you do it, the secret is when you get to where you are going stand it upright and do not plug it in for at least 24 hours. That gives the oil a chance to go back down where it belongs.Waiting 48 would be even better. Hope this helps.

The top section, fridge, is freezing up, we only had it 3 days


Read somewhere that refrigerators are not supposed to be transported on their sides - that they are supposed to be moved in an upright position and that if you have transported it like that you are supposed to let it stand upright for about 8 hours before using it.

Is it ok to transport a refrigerator on it's side?


Not true. Refers since the 1950's are sealed units but for safety's sake let it sit for awhile after you move it.

Question about moving a fridge and now it needs a costly part??


The refrigerator should have been transported in an upright position.
If not, oil will run out of the compressor.
This will cause problems.
