In connection with the move, there are so many difficulties: finding a company (for example – https://www.flashmoving.net/packers-and-movers/) purchasing packaging, disassembling furniture and equipment. Here’s another small problem: the refrigerator, which cannot be turned on immediately after transportation. Not everyone knows that it cannot be turned on right away. Because during transportation it tilts, sometimes it is transported on its side and oil can get into the cooling circuit, but if you turn it on right away, the oil will remain in the circuit and this will lead to breakdown. When the compressor is turned on, it will begin to move refrigerant through the pipes, and the oil will interfere with normal circulation. If you bring a refrigerator from the street (in winter) into a heated room, water will form due to the temperature difference. Water can be wiped off outside and inside, but not on the wiring and contacts that are inside; switching on will cause damage. And if you leave it to settle, the oil will come to the desired position and the freon will be distributed throughout the entire circuit.
Warm season – when transporting equipment vertically, it will need to stand for up to 6 hours.
Cold temperature – with the refrigerator in a vertical position, it should be kept warm until the condensation disappears, namely 12 hours.
If it was transported in a horizontal position plus during the cold season, then this time will not be enough and it will have to stand for more than 12 hours, ideally a day.
At this time, the refrigerator should be emptied of its packaging, washed (inside and out) and loaded with shelves and other components. Visually check if everything is fine with it after transportation. If you transported a new refrigerator, you can only check the visual component; if they ask you to sign documents about serviceability, then do not sign them until the required time has passed, only after this time has passed, turn it on and inspect it. Products can be loaded into it 2-3 hours after switching on.
