More then likely it was tilted more then it can be allowed to tilt. There is oil inside the compressor that will get into the refrigerant lines and it you try to run unit too soon after moving you will migrate the oil into the system and that will result in some bad things. Try to let it set for 24 hours unplugged and Hopefully the oil will drain back into the compressor. Sometimes I leave them unplugged for 48 hours to make sure. But it's not a for sure method other wise system will have to be cleaned out and new cap tube installed. Very costly. ken
