I'm having a new (French door) fridge delivered this week. Depth with doors removed is 32 7/8". Opening in the kitchen door is 32 3/8". There's another way in, but the fridge would have to be carried in on its side to clear the counter. I know that putting a fridge horizontal is not a good idea, but can I do that if the only time it's horizontal is the 30 seconds it takes to lift (not me; the delivery guys) it through that opening? Do I still need to let it sit a day or so before plugging it in? Thanks for any advice.

I have done just that a few times.

And never had a problem with it functioning afterward.

The 30 seconds is not enough time for the lubricant and coolant to get out of it's proper place.
