    Don't leave them on their side is the general rule for any length of time. The compressor motor is mounted on springs and can fall off the mounts when not vertical. Honestly I've never seen one do it but it is possible.

    Depends on what side it's on, if the filter\dryer is up it is fine start. If it's on the wrong side and compressor oil goes into the filter it will need some time to sort itself out. The filter is the far copper bit

    I think I've heard that one before and its not really possible.

    My god such heathens on this forum. Waikato is the King of beers, the nectar of the gods and the elixir of life. It is the supreme Amber fluid of our time Northdude. There are only two types of men in this world, Waikato drinkers and snivelling girly men. Ha ha ha ha

    stand it up, this will cause the oil content of the refrigerant to settle back to the lowest point. a coupe of hours should do it but if its been a bumpy ride home leave it longer.
