I got a new mini fridge yesterday. As it is my first fridge ever, I had no idea about the oil settling time waiting so I just plugged it in immediately. It is most probably transported in the correct upright position but I can’t be 100% sure.
Now I wonder is there a way that I could check if I somehow damaged it? It seems like working and cooling is okay. Makes a bit weird noises while running but it might be normal I guess.
And would it make sense to plug it off now and wait? Would it help with the oil settling or is it too late now?
