When we purchased a refrigerator and had to lay it down to get it home, we were told by the salesperson to let it stand upright for 24 hours BEFORE plugging it in. This was to allow the oil to return to the compressor.

I have a 6hp 4 stroke outboard that I will be transporting. Which side do I lay it on?

Hi Don
I'm afraid I'll need to know the make of your OB before I can begin to help you out.
FWIW, our Honda 15 is transported with the tiller handle side down.

Refrigerator laying down

Never lay a fridge down if you can help it. if you do then leave it vertical for an hour before plugging it in.

Games will not play. what do i do

Try cleaning the disk. And is the system down flat or laying on it's side? Sometimes if it's laying flat and you put it on it's side it will work. Don't ask me why it does but it does. I hope this helps somewhat. *Game On*

Moved unit, wont get cold

did you transport it upright or laying down.... depending on who you talk to you will get a different answer... i have been in the appliance business for 18 years and have to say the more i hear they are transported laying down the more i hear troubles... either way after transported or moved they should be left sitting for approx. 24 hours to allow all the oil to settle back down,,,also could have developed a leak in the sealed system one of the refrigerant lines leaking.

We are going to purchase a fridge. Can we lay it on the side or back to transport it home without any problems


if the refrigerator is a new one it will be in a carton in order to protect it from scratching or having faulty .
On the carton you will see the description on it , just follow the instructions ,
But if the refrigerator does not comes with a carton you can lay it through it's side , that is the positions , because laying by the back side might break the gas pipe which will cause more damages to the refrigerator.
So lay it by it's side . Thanks and hope it help in solving the problem....

What kind of carb does the 76 c10 4x4 come with need to adjust

mcdevito75 here, The fast idle is needed when the engine is cold to make the air and fuel mixture rich to keep the engine running while cold, the carb. choke doew this with a bi-metalic spring in that balck round box on the side of the carb, a screw also hepls keep the choke closed until warm up, this screw can be adjusted tpo control how tight it holds the choke cloesed, here"s how to adjust this screw to slow fast idle speed, Locate on the carb, where the gas pedal connects, have a friend operate the gas pedal with the engine off, once you locate the linkage, you"ll also see 2 screws with springs around them, 1 is for fast idle the other for regular idle, you want the fast idle screw, notice this screw will lay against and Half moon shaped tab, while the other screw lays against a shaft, you need the screw that lays against the half moon shaped tab. Start the engine and step on the gas pedal slightly and relaease, at the screw that lays against this half moon, simply turn it counter clockwise or toward you just 1 2 or 3 turns very slowly, you'll hear the fast idle come down but you don"t want the fast idle to low, listen to the engine very carefully, slow it down just a bit, it should still race though but not out of control. Of course for a full carb, adjustment the shop should handle that., but this info will help.

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.

My GLTF2940ES Front Load fridgeadire wont fill or drain

make sure you have water going through your inlet pipes pull the machine out and check while pulling out check they are not getting kinked. if water is going through pipes once removed from machine you have a problem with your inlet valves its unusual for both to go unless your using cold fill only check for calcium build up where you connect your pipe to valve test while pulled out.good luck.

Moving a freezer

Shouldn't be a problem in itself, but it's prudent to let the freezer stand the right way up for an hour or two before you turn it back on.
