We had our home refrigerator repaired recently. I asked the technician about the frig in our 94 Excella as it wasn't getting very cold inside. His advice was to take the fridge out and over a few hours to turn it upside down and on its side. He said that the cooling gas (freon??) had settled. Turning the frig over would dislodge and recirculate the gas enabling better cooling.
I am not a techie. Is it difficult to take the refrigerator out and then to reinstall as suggested?
YOur advice would be appreciated.

We are in an 18 classic. Recently removed the fridge. Unplug, disconnect 120v, disconnect gas line, 2 bolts in back and 4 screws on the front side held it down. I found a video on YouTube that walked me through it.

Needed my wife to help move the fridge as it was too big for just me to move it around without causing damage to the floor or cabinets.

I remember a photo on this forum from some years back where a bunch of 4-corners guys "burped" a fridge. IIRC, it included Lewster, KenJ and perhaps azflycaster.

What a hoot.
