Kenmore Model No. 253.53322302 side-by-side not cold enough. Incidentally, fridge was unplugged in garage last 2 years until plugged in 2 months ago. Fridge stays at 38 F and Freezer at 27 F, so ice...

Since your fridge/freezer has been in storage the gas has settled, did the fridge/freezer get put on its side at any stage during the move?
This could have caused leakage out the breather pipe, have a look at the condenser at the back of the fridge, down low, you will see two hard pipes coming out of the tank, one leads up into the fridge the other doubles over, is open ended and facing downward, this is the breather and gas can escape from this pipe when the appliance is tilted to far over.
Chances are high that you will need to service this appliance.
its a good idea not to turn on immediately after moving. giving the gas time to settle again before turning on.
It could be the door seals need replacing as they can go hard over time when just sitting and no longer form a good seal on the door.

Whent it was moved to my new house, it was laid down for awhile,not won't get cold?

Hello. When a fridge is laid on side the fluids in it flow away from necessary areas. Always stand the fridge upright for at least 48 hours before plugging it in. My recommendation is to unplug it and let it sit for 48 hours and then plug it in again. regards, Joe

We have moved our fridge freezer from one house to an other and it was on its side in the car, now it won't get cold enough it is kaput?

Turn it off and let it sit for 24 hours so that the oil can drain back to the compressor. It may work then when you plug it back in but you may have ruined it.

Haier hsp03wna not working

The click you heard is the thermal overload. This snaps open when the compressor is too hot.
Unplug the unit for 24 hours and don't move it.
Then plug it in and see if it comes back on temp.

I have a Maytag MSD2454G and it will not cool or make ice

Has the refrigerator been moved lately, such as yesterday, and been sitting on its side?
Refrigerators which have been moved in this manner, need to be put into place and left upright for a whole day before they can be plugged back in.
If this is not the case, you may have to get a refrigerator repair technician to check the pump, and maybe recharge the coolant.

Could be a jammed fan or something could have moved inside to block the opening. Some units have deflectors in the openings...did one of those cover the opening on the fridge side? Did you overpack your freezer and block the air flow from there to the fridge?
