Yes - there is a problem. the rating of the sliders is related to their orientation to the load. when you turn those sliders "on their side" they no longer have a profile that is stressed in the same way and looking at those ones, is likely to be much less robust because of how thin the vertical load surface now is. definitely test before you do it, i wouldn't be surprised if those snap under the weight of the fridge in that orientation. you'd be better off mounting them to a wood "bed" in their proper orientation and then setting the fridge on it for durabilities sake. That said - it still might be "good enough" but if it fails, you can't really blame the slidersSo I've been making some progress on my storage for the FJC.
Now here's where I'm stuck.
Obviously the crappy sliders (only rated for 100lbs) will fold under the weight of a fridge, specifically the Whynter (edgestar) 45qt. So I'm thinking of going with some 24" double locking sliders. Before I drop the cash on them I have a question. Is there anything wrong with useing drawer sliders mounted underneath the fridge? I realize they are intended to be mounted on the side but I've seen a few people do this before and I'm wondering how they've held up.
