Hey kelly, what do ya think
Appliance Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 11 months ago

Your friends are partially right! Turn it upside down for a couple hours then back right side up for a couple hours and it should solve any minor crystallization that may have occurred if it was operated when not level. Be careful of the refrigerant lines when you disconnect so as not to puncture or damage them. Let me know if you still have issues after! :~)
