If you can get to compressor set your cold control all the way down(coldest setting) then see if you hear contactor on compressor click if not give a tap from a small wooden or plastic mallet near and around the contactor(not directly on contactor case its plastic or aluminum) and see if that will start compressor,if comp is running and its overly warm it may be low on refrigerant

My refrigerator worked great until I had to unplug it for a little over a month. Now the freeze is not freezing.. its getting cold but not freezing and my refrigerator is cool but not cold.. any...

Normally the refrigerator should be run continuously as taking only 0.5 to 1.2 amphs maximum.
Once it's switched off for more than 2 days, there are chances to get chocked. Replace the gas after flush out the system.

Sat for a year wont get cold fan and compressor

It needs to be re-gassed.
Sorry mate, there is a rule out there if something is not in use at least once every three months, it brakes. This goes for cars, printers, TV's, lawn mowers, ect. and fridges new and old.

Emerson Compact Refrigerator not cold.

Make sure the condenser fan is running, it is located near the compressor and blows across the condensing coils, and make sure the coils are clean. Compressors usually do get pretty hot though. And make sure all you fans are running in the inside

Fridge not staying cold

did you let the fridge stay in it's new place for 24 hours up right before turning it on?
Try turning it off for at least 24 hours and start it back up again.
If you moved it on its side the compressor oil flows into the lines and must beable to drain back down before using it.
If not you'll seeze the compressor.
not good.
