When it comes to your refrigerator, it will spend its whole life pretty much in the same spot. You will definitely need to scoot it around so that you can clean the condenser coils on the back, but otherwise, it stays in that alcove. Unfortunately, there may come a time when you need to make a serious repair to it.

This repair may mean disassembly or even taking the doors off. Yet, your refrigerator alcove may not come with a lot of space to do so. When this happens, you need to know how to move your refrigerator, and that can be more difficult than you can expect.

When moving a refrigerator, it is crucial that you keep it upright. Your refrigerator was not designed to be laid down, so even if you are moving it to a new house, it should be kept ride side up. Aside from that, it is pretty simple to move, just pretty heavy.

To move your refrigerator, you will want to take all the food out as well as remove the shelving. You want to eliminate the possibility that anything can shift and cause any unexpected results while moving the appliance. Furthermore, removing the food and shelving can take off a lot of weight for an easier moving experience.

One thing is for sure, you will want to make sure you leave the refrigerator plugged in and running as normal prior to the technician arriving. If this is a no cool issue, a technician will still want to see how the refrigerator is trying to operate under normal circumstances. This will expedite a diagnosis.
