Thanks for all the replies Smile

I keep it very clean , it is built into the kitchen at the farm house and vented to the outside . I pull it out each year and vacuum or air blast it clean , flue included . I did neglect the flue for a time as I didn't know they accumulated so much soot , I do now and it is clean as are the cooling fins , jet and burner .
So I tipped it upside down , left it for a day , then upright again for an hour or two before unending it again . Haven't lain it on its side but that is also a good suggestion .
I found some useful information , apparently the ammonia content of the refrigerant can crystalise in the warmer areas of the heat exchanger and cause blockages , by inverting it these are submerged and then dissolve and re enter suspension in the fluid , makes sense .
I will hook it up again later today our time and report back .
