We recently had our refrigerator moved to install new tile. The refrigerator was kept plugged in the whole time, however suddenly after being moved back neither the freezer of refrigerator are cooling. Lights are on in the fridge so the power is working. There is frost on the back of the Freezer wall towards the top....any ideas?

When your refrigerator isn't cooling your food and drink items, first check that the power cord is plugged into a working electrical outlet. If you recently plugged in the refrigerator for the first time, it will take approximately 8 to 12 hours before the refrigerator is cool. Even though the refrigerator is cool in this time frame, you shouldn't place the refrigerator to a colder setting until the initial cool down stage, which takes 24 hours.
If the refrigerator has been running for 24 hours, you can adjust the refrigerator to a lower setting. The control panel is located in upper portion of the refrigerator compartment. Press the up arrow button to set the refrigerator to a higher setting, which will decrease the temperature of the refrigerator compartment.
If the temperature control is correctly set but the refrigerator compartment still does not cool down, check the refrigerator door. First, remove any food or drink items that are preventing the door from fully closing. In addition, make sure all of the drawers are fully closed, as they may keep the door from closing.
Next, clean off the gasket with warm, soapy water and a sponge. Rinse the soapy water off of the gasket. If the gasket is not clean, it will not create a seal with the refrigerator.
Another reason the refrigerator is not cooling down may be because the refrigerator door is opened too frequently or left open for a long period of time. Pay attention to your use of the door and try to shorten the amount of time the door is opened.
Your Jenn-Air refrigerator might not cool down for other reasons. If you have recently added food to the refrigerator, the temperature of the food may have an effect on the temperature of the refrigerator. The temperature in the refrigerator will adjust after the food sits in the unit for an hour or more.
You may have obstructed the air flow on the inside of the refrigerator with the placement of your food. The rear air grille is located under the crisper drawers. Move any food items away from the rear air grille to increase the air flow through the refrigerator.
If those thing above did not solve your problem you better check and replace the relay and compressor and it will be good as new. Thanks
I recently had the same issue of the sides/center becoming hot on my kscs25inss01. The cooling fan would not come on. I kept unplugging and waiting for a while then re-plugging in to get the fan to work for a while (it would run about 12 hours then get hot again, it also takes 7 minutes for fan to come on after plugged in). I also placed a small box fan at the rear vent pulling the air out. I ordered the contoller board and replaced it, now, the fan comes on and it is staying cool.
I removed panel in lower back,
removed inverter box next to compressor,
removed gounding wire on frame,
then removed the controller box - metal box along side of refrigerator
Popped out old board ,
moved the center jumper from old board to new board in same location,
and plugged everything in and sealed it back up in reverse order.
As others have noted, the solution is counter-intuitive but easy. The refrigerator keeps cold on this model by cold air coming over from the freezer side. So most likely it is ice blocking the freezer coils or the fan that moves the air. So turn off the freezer and defrost it. You will need to remove the big white plate on the back of the freezer (on the inside) to most effectively get the ice to melt. You can use a hair dryer for this, or just leave the freezer sitting with the door open for several hours.
