Question about Refrigerators
This box is less than 6 yrs old and about a week ago the coils would just freeze up with ice after thawing it it would work fine for a day or 2 and same problem again. I turned the refridge on it's side to get ez access to clean the coils of dust and dirt and now it dosen't cool at all, the fans and compressor are running but still not getting cold not even a little bit. I tested the temp controlls with a meter and it test good. what might be wrong? Thanks Gene
Your refrigerator had a defrost problem but now after you laid it down it sounds like you gave it a oil restriction when you laid it down there is oil in the compreesor it left the compressor and made its way into the evaporator in whice it has clogged the strianer dryer you will now need system work you could try to unplug it for a few days and then replug it in it might start to get cold if it does then you will have to checkk the defrost system it will either be a defrost timer ot heater ot defrost limiter or defrost fan good luck

Refrigerant is leaked out and it needs refilling of the refrigerant and servicing and first you must find out which part of the unit exactly the refrigerant is leaking and then rectify it and flush out all the moisture and dirt from the system and gas charge the same again with recommended refrigerant and change the drier of the unit to avoid partial ice formation.
As you mention that the compressor and relay thermostat are functioning there is no need to touch them.
