question on residential fridge

Has anyone had to remove the residential fridge - if so any tips are appreciated. Mine just stopped cooling, everything works but not cooling at all. I can get it covered under warranty but needs to be accessible for the technician.

Any input is appreciated - thanks

I had to pull our Frigidaire residential frig in our 2014 351 DS- it too had stopped cooling and the frigidaire tech would not slide out to inspect/repair. Due to the fact our frigidaire is about 5" off the main floor I built a frame (looks like a pallet) and used carpet under it to slide the frig out onto. I had to remove the right top door and the slide out freezer door to completely slide the frig to the center of the RV. Make sure the water is off and be aware of power cord and water tubing. Good luck!

My rig has a wooden brace at the top to prevent tipping of the frig- but it is not necessary to remove that during removal. Only the 2 angled long screws at the bottom hold the frig in.

Gotta ask - in a 2014 Georgetown why is this not covered under warranty?

Yes- true in that it has warranty but as always each situation had to be considered. RV dealers are usually not appliance repair certified - esp in the case of residential units. Sure- you could drop it off at a dealer - let them pull the frig and then schedule a outside repair man to come look at it- find the issue then maybe have to source parts. I would say all that results in losing the unit for a few days minimum to possibly weeks. I consider myself handy to a certain point and after a year I will not have a warranty (unless I bought an extended one) and will own all the systems anyway. Unless the frig is required to be replaced in its entirety I chose to set up the service and pulled the frig myself. Now I am confident I can pull it in the future along will setup to pull for any future service or cleaning maintenance.

Thanks. I presume the fix cost by the technician was covered? Probably would go the same the direction.

Yes- frig labor and parts were covered. One thing to consider is the date of manufacturer of the appliance may cause an issue since usually appliances are a year old once "newly" installed in coach. I had to provide bill of sale for coach to get Frigidaire to update the appliance warranty and issue new warranty start date.

FL family, were you able to move the frig all by yourself?
