Is it possible to transport the refrigerator lying down?
When buying or putting in the repair of the refrigerator, the question arises - can I transport the refrigerator lying down. Experience shows that you can. With this type of transportation, you must follow certain rules.
- When transporting without factory packaging init is necessary to ensure that the cooling unit lies on its side to prevent damage to the rear part or handles on the front. Factory packaging thanks to foam layers prevents damage. The main thing, when transported on the side, is the lack of shaking and swinging, since the compressor is on the springs and from the swinging can get off the fasteners.
- For transportation, do not usecar trailers. It must be transported either by truck or pick-up truck. If you pay attention to the companies engaged in repair and maintenance of refrigeration equipment, you can see that their representatives specializing in domestic installations drive exclusively on pickup trucks, which are the most suitable for accurate transportation.
- The basic rule is to sustain the time after installation before switching on the network.
In the transport instruction it is written that the transportationshould only be carried out in an upright position. This rule applies only to industrial equipment, since the compressor is connected to the cooling tube system by a ball valve.
