It is not recommended to lay the refrigerator on one side while transporting. You will be taking a risk of oil getting into the refrigerant lines & creating a restriction. If there is no other way to move it then be sure that when you sit the unit back upright that you

do not

turn it on for at least 24 hours. This will allow the oil in the compressor to settle.
