Check the controls to see that it is set for cold. But I'm sure you already did this. There could be an electrical part that failed during the move. This would not be too expensive to repair, but this is not very likely. It might be worth $50 to have it diagnosed.
More likely, the compressor lost its oil and will not turn any more. Or, something caused a Freon leak, and there's no coolant left. The repair could be as much as $500 - $800. Unless your fridge is worth more than $1000, plan to get another fridge.

Good luck!

Not cooling


Check if compressor is starting and the click start of the compressor starting. After that refrigerator should have humming vibration. If yes then check the thermistor or replace THERMISTOR. Actually thermistor's job is to sense the cooling temperature. If THERMISTOR is faulty then ice formation will not happen. Once desired temperature reaches then thermistor activates relay attached with compressor for autocut.

The outside ridge between the freezer and cooler


I would guess that the condenser fan isn't running. It's underneath the fridge behind the cardboard cover on the back. It should be running when the compressor runs. You can place your own fan on the floor blowing under the fridge till you get it fixed.

Fridge not cooling


Hello.
The most common thing that happens while moving a frig is when moving it they put the dolly underneath the condenser fan housing and bend it into the fan causing the compressor to overheat before it has a chance to cool down everything. If this isn't the case then I will send you a list of things to check out. Let me know.

The display unit keeps flashing on the fridge side on my samsung RS20CCVS.


When the temperature indicator flashes indicate then the temperature has ridge a level lower the the set temperature for example if you set you fridge side to 36 degree and and has fail to stop from getting cooler and has ridge 34 degree. some times those friges fail to calibrate them self tray by unplugging you dirge for 30 seconds and replug it then the board will auto calibrate for the next 24 hours If this problem comes back again that meas than your defrost element on the fridge side is bad.
