Rule of thumb...if you laid fridge down, stand it up and leave unplugged for same amount of time fridge was laid down. If old fridge, and will not come on after above method, it is possible compressor motor has fallen out of mounting isolators inside compressor case. If so, compressor may hum and get hot but not cool fridge. This means you may need a tech to diagnose further, but probably cannot fix without replacing compressor. Only a qualified tech can diagnose this for sure.

How long should i leave my fridge un pluged after moving.


If the fridge was not laid down on it's side while moving (it stood straight up the whole way) then you can start it immediately. If it was horizontal for some length of time the wait about 2hr. Hope that helped you.

GE side x side (model # GSH25JS) was in a house that i moved into... it was unplugged a full of rotten food and maggots. (Yes, it was horrific!) Anyway got it all emptied, scrubbed and disinfected. ...


Check the wiring for loose connection of parts including the temperature control, defrost button or timer, the relay and anything. Also check for leak in the tubing. Since you moved from different places maybe far, it's possible that bumps, bouncing the pressure inside system tube might occurred.
I hope my ideas help you.

Moved fridge...runs but now does not cool


Just unplug and let the compressor oil that flowed into the freezer evaporator to flow back to compressor. Unplug and wait 24 hours until trying to restart. Ifyou can not feel or insure compressor is running wait longer. The oil is thick and in liquid state it must seep through a hole about 10 feet and the opening can be as small as a sewing neddle. Let me know if this has been helpful, Thank You Sea Breeze

Freezer is working but fridge is not cooling


is the evaporator fan (in the freezer) running? if not you cant move the cold air from the freezer too the fridge. also make sure the return air duct is not blocked. air moves from freezer, through fridge and back to freezer.

After moving fridge (and waiting 36 hours) compressor won't start


You should worry , the 12 amps is a locked rotor on the compressor , it may be the over load relay control on the compressor as well , try replacing the over load start relay first , they are not expensive , if this does not fix it you can try installing a booster like a rco410 but the comp. can not take that abuse for years from the booster. when the comp. is running normal it will draw roughly 1.5 - 3.0 amps.
