I am going to move a side by side refrigerator and wanted to

Resolved Question:

I am going to move a side by side refrigerator and wanted to know if I can lay it down to move it because we only have a trailer? I'm afraid to keep it upright on the trailer but I guess I could if the unit will be damaged by laying t down. We will be taking it about 20 miles.

Hi,Welcome to Just Answer, My name is XXXXX XXXXX forward to helping you today.


Well moving this up right is the best option although you can lay it down if you're very careful and once you have it moved him into the new house you need to let this sit for about an hour before you plug it in, the compressor oil will drain out of the bottom of the compressor with it laid on its side so you will need to let the compressor oil get back down into the bottom of the compressor before plugging this in, if you're careful and you don't bang it around it should be fine, I hope this helps, thanks, Bryan
