That's funny, when they delivered my new side by side refrigerator, I looked in the semi box and ALL the refrigerators they had in the truck were on their side. I asked the guy about it and he said, that's they way they get them from the factory.

They seem to be concerned about interior shelves moving around as well as possible damage due to compressor oil sloshing around.

VEry interesting. So with GE, there is a difference with monogram, bottom-mount, compact, versus all the other models. And new compact are okay and even used if you take care of drain water!!
So that leaves Monogram and bottom mount which are somehow different from all the rest. And they must really be or they wouldn't go to the trouble of saying so.

Using a wrench remove the bolts from the bottom of the compressor , because most of the connections are copper they are bendable. Very slowly turn the compressor to the back of the fridge thus causing the fluid to go to the b ottom of the canister. Then laying the refrigerator on it's back will not d amage anything! When you get home bend the compressor back to where it orig inally was and reinsert bots or leave it as it is and use it like a deep fr eeze cooler it will now sit on it's back and you may fill It with a lot more beverages than you would have been able to before!! " no te that you will have to buy some sort of pan if you leave ion it's back be cause the the compressor will condensate and drip water ' difference is tha t a refrigerator already has the drop pan

I was interested in making a refrigerator into a "deep freeze" cooler. Wou ld you recommend doing this for permanent use? It would be outside, so the drip pan would not be a problem. I was trying to attach a picture. It is nice with wood covering and lift doors.

Also, laying down an abandoned refrigerator might make it harder for a trapped child to get out of - due to weight of the door. No one here thought of that. ;)

Some places require you take the door off.
OTOH, most appliance dealers will take the old one away when they deliver the new one.
