How long do I wait before I plug in a mini fridge?!

Question: How long do I wait before I plug in a mini fridge?
I just got a mini fridge, and it was lying on it back for a while. My mom told me I might have to wait a few days to let the gas settle, standing upright, before I can plug it in. Do I really have to? If I do have to wait how long would it take?


It will vary between the brand and size, but the gas will settle within minutes.
Just follow the instructions about how to use for the first time, like checking hoses and attachments.

You really should let it rest upright to let the coolant settle back down. 24 hours should do it, then you'll be fine.
