Moved The Fridge, Not cooling

I recently got this fridge from my mother in law and it was on its side for the whole ride to my house(10 miles) and now the fridge will blow "cool" but not cold....i know for a fact that the fridge worked perfectly before the move. I opened the back of the fridge and compressor and everything are running like they should be, one line is warm and one line is cool coming off of the compressor.....Anything i can do to fix this??? Thanks

Oil from the compressor gravitated into the evaporator coils and is restricting the flow of refrigerant. Oil may drain back to compressor after standing upright for a few days; if not the evaporator will have to be purdged with refrigerant and system recharged.

Check the evaporator fan inside the freezer compartment.

    Lying the a refer on its side is a big no no but its a bit overrated. However in your case, it may be the problem. First make sure the compressor is not kicking out on the overload, thus short cycling the system. Also check the thermostat to make sure its not cutting out prematurely. You may need to add some access valves to the copper lines to connect the gauges if the thermostat checks out and you still think it may compressor.

Freezer is working, but refrigerator is not cooling. Food is now collecting mold on dairy products. What is causing this?

Maybe the air passthrough is frozen over blocking cool air to fridge.
I would defrost the whole thing, but you could try a hair dryer blowing into the air vent for 5 -10 mins..

To save, put frozen food in a cooler packed tightly and / or wrapped in newspaper to keep it frozen, if shutting down for the defrost.,

Fridge not cooling. Temperature rising

most common problem is the defrost timer motor,it tells the fridge to de ice ,about every 10 hrs or so,if it gets stuck or burns out your evaporator will be a block of ice ,and the fan blowing on it wont transfer cold air,look in the bottom of the fridge by the compressor,
