New Refrigerator not working properly after being tilting while unloading

Recently purchased new compact Avanti Refrigerator. It was tilted backward briefly while unloading from truck. The freezer works great, but not the refrigerator. We have unplugged it and allowed it to stand for two days prior to plugging it back in, but the refrigerator section is not cooling properly.

You can power the refrigerator on after 3-4 hours, as per _any_ manufacturer's instruction manual. But seriously, all you need to do is give it about 3 hours and you will be fine.

Purchased an Avanti BCA5102 refrigerator and plugged it in and set it to cool and it has not got cool in two days? Anything I might be able to do to get it working properly?

The problem with messing with the unit at this point, is the fact that you would void the warranty. Did you try plugging something else into the socket to make sure you are getting power? If the socket it ok you will need to return it or call a factory authorize servicer.

Fridge temp high

freon and a compressor is about as easy as it gets....Loss of freon will cause erratic cooling...also if you can feel it touch the compressor after it shuts off if if feels like its really hot ....bad compressor that kicks an internal breaker....bad news then time for new one also only a airconditioner man can put freon in no 12 . but freon will stay for 50 to 80 years for i tested some old fridges and still cool fine.

Refrigerator Problem

Could be the temp control is not registering temps correctly. If you leave is below 6 does everything warm up? The compressor should only run when it needs to, not all the time. In other words, if you put it on 4 will the food stay cool (about 38F)? A typical unit only runs a few minutes a day if the doors are not opened up all the time.
