have a true display refrigerator. someone recently moved it about 7 miles laying on its back. worked for a day and now compressor is trying to kick on every 15 seconds or so and drawing 25 amps at attempt. Is there a chance that changing the starter or hard start will fix it or is something lodged or something slipped in compressor? thanks

Nope, more than likely all the compressor oil migrated into the evaporator and condenser and you did not let it sit upright for a day or so before you started it up and now the compressor is toast.

Yup, that trick only works with the Hydrogen Absorbtion Refrigerators found in R.V's
