Your Questions About Refrigerator Repair

David asks…

Is it bad to lay a refrigerator down when moving it ?

I need to take it to the repair shop and need to know if I lay it down will i mess it up?

James Conley answers:

You can lay it down , but you need to let it stand again for several hours before plugging it back in.
A fridge can be moved on it’s side, but you run the risk of some of the oil coming out of the compressor and running up the lines to places where it can cause a restriction. Damage can occur to the fridge and the fridge may stop cooling 🙁

Many times there is just no other way to move your fridge other than on it’s side. Appliance Repair Aid has some tips for you.

The #1 problem with a fridge on it’s side is the oil comes out of the compressor and runs up the cooling lines. If at all possible lay the fridge down on the opposite side of where these tubes come out of the compressor. Oil can run up the return line and discharge line, oil in the process tube will not hurt the fridge or operation. The worst is having oil in the discharge line

Jenny asks…

What courses would I look to take in order to learn refrigerator and freezer repair?

My restaurant has several refrigerators, ice machines, and freezers. I’d like to learn how to repair and maintain them myself as the repair costs can get pretty expensive very fast and then you don’t even know if you are being told the complete truth. Looked at the online course catalog for a local tech school and am only coming up with HVAC repair.

Thanks in advance.

James Conley answers:

Go to web and look for technical schools in your area. Then look for courses on heating, air conditioning and mechanical systems repair. Good luck.
