If you tipped it on its side you may have caused an air bubble to form in the refrigerant.
Plug it in, leave it empty, set for maximum cooling and do not open the door to check it for several hours.  Put a thermometer inside to check the actual temperature after three or four hours to see if it is getting cool.  Listen for the compressor to come on and whether there are any strange noises.  If you hear gurgling in the coils the refrigerant should be working OK.

Refrigerator and freezer not cooling


Check the start capacitor on the compressor and the thermal cutoff switch. It is where the wires connect to the compressor.

Cooling Off mode (also called Shop mode), is designed for use by retailers when they are displaying refrigerators on the shop
floor. In Cooling Off mode, the refrigerator's fan motor and lights work normally, but the compressors do not run, and
the refrigerator and freezer do not get cold.
To start Cooling Off mode, Touch and hold the Energy Saver button and the Power Freeze button for 3 seconds during normal
operation.
The refrigerator chime sounds and the temperature display flashes OF OF.
To cancel Cooling Off mode, Touch and hold the Energy Saver and the Power Freeze buttons again for 3 seconds.

Samsung fridge not cooling


If the compressor runs but doesn't cool then it is possible you are low on refrigerant. Also if you recently moved the unit by laying down to transport from one place to another, it may have developed an air lock in the lines and may cure itself by simply letting it sit over night unplugged

Hotpoint Refrigerator constantly runs and doesn't shut off normally.


Sounds like the thermostat is not working that is what tells the compressor it is cold enough shut off.

Fault code EF is flashing on my Electrolux fridge FSC23R5DSB6. What does this code mean?


EF on the Electrolux refrigerator digital display means "evaporator fan."

The long answer is, it doesn't necessarily mean there is something wrong with your Electrolux refrigerator.

Turn the power off on the digital display and carefully unplug the refrigerator from the power source. Leave the refrigerator unplugged for three to five minutes. Plug the refrigerator back in and give the refrigerator a few minutes then turn the power button back on. Press the default button on the display and see if the EF code goes away.

Electrolux recommends that you do not plug the refrigerator into an outlet that has a reset button. If your refrigerator is plugged into one of these outlets, try plugging it into another outlet and see if the refrigerator resets itself.

Hope this helps.

Hi,
Here is a tip that I wrote on moving refrigerators...if you did not do it thisway then you may well have ruined a perfectly good refrigerator.

Moving a Refrigerator What is the best way

If you already have moved it wrong, you can sometimes get it working byplugging it in and unplugging it a number of times with an hour or so inbetween.

Reset button


There are no reset buttons, try unplugging and leaving it unplugged for 10 minutes or so, if it doesn't start working again you may need a new control board

Model rs2533sw panel not reseting after being unplugged


I had the same problem (panel would not start up - just flashed one dash after a power outage).

The solution above: pressing the top two buttons for 12 seconds (Power Freeze and Power Cool buttons) reset the panel and everything is working fine now.

Thank You!
