Freezer in my kenmore refrigerator isn't cold

I recently moved my refrigerator to a new house. During the move the fridge fell on it's side. When we plugged it in at the new house the freezer won't get cold but the fridge side does. It's a kenmore side by side model #106.54536400. Please help!

    Could the freezer defrost heater been activated somehow? If so, how do I stop it?

    No, the icemaker doesn't feel warm. Do I need to tip the unit over to check the fan motor, or is there an access panel?

Make sure the freezer fan motor is running. The wires may have come off when it fell.

    No it could not have.

    However, the icemaker mold heater could be stuck.

    Feel the bottom of the icemaker with your hand.

    If it is hot unplug the icemaker and buy a new one.

    Also check the compressor fan motor.

    Is it running?

    There is an access panel on the bottom rear of the fridge.If the fan is running, carefully feel the compressor to find out if it is hot.

Hopefully you didn't have the unit on its side when you moved! That could present another problem.

The cold air for your refrigerator comes from the freezer compartment. When you say it is working, can we assume you mean it is getting cold or just making noises in the freezer compartment?

Check to see if the refrigerator temperature control is on and in about the middle of the scale on this model, e.g., 5.

If there is ice built up on back inside freezer wall, you have a defrost problem. Either defrost heater, defrost thermostat, or defrost control (timer or Board) is bad.

Fridge warm, freezer has frost on back panel & is defrosting, fans work, just changed defrost thermostat, no air is moving from freezer side to fridge side, drain pan under fridge is dry

this fan needs to run when the compressor runs,check fan blade for being jammed by ice if you have this much ice on back wall as ice will stall motor,if no fan there will be no cool air to refrige compartment also the defrost drain tray will fill with water then freeze over which in turn floods the freezer floor and refrige compartments cause it cannot drain to the pan in the bottom

Both firdge and freezer on level 5 and still not very cold

It may just need more freon. A service call won't cost the landlord too much, and then he will have a report from a qualified third party, if the fridge needs to be replaced.

Frigidaire Fridge PLHS69EESS2

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?
