    Speak to Curry's customer care people, highlight the fact that due to the problems caused by them you are in this predicament and I'm sure they will let you have a changeover period. The 12 hour rule is for the gasses to settle, but personally I have rarely bothered with this and never had any problems.

    I guess you will just have to run the stock down in your freezer mate, thats what we did as our neighbours had no room either.

    All you can do is speak to customer service and ask to keep the old fridge for 12hours while the new one settles.
    12hours is a long one though, 3-4 hours is more common.
    The gas in the system also has oil in it to lubricate the pump, the oil ends up all over the place when a fridge is transported, particularly if it is not keep upright at all times.
    The standing time is to allow the oil to drain back down to where it should be so the pump is properly lubricated.
    Ignoring the standing time could lead to the pump being damaged if it runs dry of oil.
    If a fridge or freezer has been moved (particularily out of it's normal upright position) you should never plug it into the mains for at least 3-4 hours.

    Exactly right. Although I have never done this and mines fine. 6 years old, 4 house moves later its still going strong (although its still a bit of a chance to take)
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    We got a new one delivered recently, unpacked it turned it on, later that day we stocked it, then the mrs decided to read the destructions and found that it should have been left to stand for a while before switching on, too late by this time but has'nt been any probs (touch wood).
