If you have a commercial refrigerator, you need to carefully plan how to move it. You may need to flip it on its side, but you should try not to lay it flat. Otherwise, the compressor could be subjected to lateral stresses. You should also make sure that the water and cooling drain lines are pointing upwards when moving the refrigerator.
If you are moving a large commercial refrigerator, you must use a cart. A dolly is basically a flat box that slides under the front wheels of a truck. Then use a rubber band to secure it. You can also use a flat piece of cardboard or a flat box to protect the front cabin.
Before moving your commercial refrigerator, make sure the compressor relay is working properly. If not, replace it. You can find the compressor relay in the refrigerator user manual. It is important to take a few steps to prevent the compressor from malfunctioning. If you don’t know which one is yours, use the user manual.
Another factor to consider is the location of the compressor. Whether the compressor is located at the bottom or at the top can affect its service. If the compressor is mounted on top, it may be difficult to access. It can also make access difficult for employees who are shorter than you. Likewise, the top shelf may be harder to reach for delicate or heavy items. Regardless of location, most professionals recommend that the compressor be located at the bottom.
