Dented side panel: Samsung fridge

Posted by lehighmal (My Page) on

My Samsung French Door refrigerator was recently damaged in a cross-town move. The stainless steel doors are dented as well as both side panels. I had an appliance repair shop come out to give me an estimate and they stated that the dents in the side panels could have been caused by shifting insulation inside the casing. I was told that if the fridge is left unplugged for a long time (mine was unplugged for about 5 hours), that the insulation can shift on it's own, causing indentations. Has anyone ever heard of such a thing?

Doesn't seem likely.

Refrigerators are supposed to be left unplugged upright after a move for several hours to overnight to help the coolant drain back to the condenser. If it's turned on too soon after a move, then some of the coolant can block up the system.
