Never lay a fridge down if you can help it. if you do then leave it vertical for an hour before plugging it in.

Check the condenser fan, listen and see if it kicks on, if it doesn't then find someone that know how to take it apart and change them.

SOURCE: fridge side stopped cooling
Hi, With the information you supplied i'm going to assume there is an ice build up at the rear of the freezer. Your problem is going to be with your defrost system. I will also assume you have the ability to repair this yourself. This is going to be one of three problems with your refridgerator, 1st thing to do is remove shelfs and panel in the back of the freezer...you should see ice build up on the evaporator...don't worry get a hair dryer and melt the ice. Next locate the wires for the heater...using a multi meter test the heater for condinuity...if the heater is bad replace it, If the heater is good replace the defrost thermostat..the stat normally is a barrel looking part clipped onto the evaporator pipe. The last possible problem could be the evaporator fan, have you heard the fan running in the past few hours?..if you are not sure pull the panel out to where you can see fan and watch it over an hour to see if it turns. I have included links with pictures of what the parts you need to check are: http://romulusappliance.com/manufacturers/maytag/refrigerators/575432.JPG defrost stat http://www.hotekalliance.com/UploadFiles/2008627111553382.jpg heaters http://www.applianceblog.com/archives/EvapMotor1018185.jpg evap fan. Hope this helps. If you have any other questions please feel free to comment again. If you decide to get a repair guy in should not cost you any more then $120 - $200 depending on make/model/problem Good luck! P.s Please don't forget to rate my solution Thanks! Mike

The reason that it is not recomended to lay a refrigerator down on it's side is because of the oils in the compressor.
When you lay the refrigerator down on it's side the oil can get into the lines and cause problems.
because you have already done so, stand the refrigerator back up and let it sit for 48 hrs and give it a try.
If you half to move a refrigeratror on its side, the best thing to do is inspcect the compressor and see witch side the main lines come out and lay the refrigeator on the oposit side as not to allow the oil to get in those lines.

As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...
