Up right freezer question


I got a used up right freezer yesterday and it came laying on its side. Does that ruine it or can you wait a day or two and plug it in and every thing work ok.

Turn it upright for a day or so, and it'll be OK. The oil in the compressor needs to drain the the bottom of the sump, starting the compressor without oil in the sump will be very hard on it.
