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!

How can i walk the ridge on a very steep hidden fastener roof so i can put the ridge cap on it

I have a friend who has been a roofer all his working life and he is like Spiderman and simply walks around up there as confidently as I walk around my house. If the roof has clay or cement pantiles he lifts one or two out so he can stand on the battens and sometimes he uses a crawler to reach the ridge.

Most people are more danger-aware and will straddle the ridge, gripping with their knees and thighs like a rider, inching their way by sliding the hindquarters along with the help of the arms until the part needing attention is reached.

Replacing rings

use a work shop manual
remove the ridge at the top of the cylinders before pushing pistons out ( saves the rings breaking the lands off the pistons )
if the cylinders come off the crankcase still remove the ridge as the new rings will hit on that ridge and cause damage
on installing the rings make sure that they go on the right side up (top marked on the ring faces to the top of the piston)
follow the manual and replace all that is recommended to replace

Intermittent grinding noise in right wheel well as breaks are applied. Doesn't seem to be affecting the left wheel well at this time. Also, after coming to a stop, there's a slight ''dragging'' sound also...

If the brakes appear to be working correctly in all other respects, then it's likely to be a noise caused by a wear ridge on the disc circumference. As the pads don't contact this part, it not only fails to wear down like the rest of the disc surface, but also rusts and as rust takes up more volume than steel the ridge actually grows larger.

To cure it, get the pads and discs checked to ensure that they're within specification (discs are a consumable item and typically need changing with every second or third set of pads). If they're well within acceptable limits then you can either grind off the wear ridge (on the inner and outer side of the disc) and also consider grinding a small chamfer onto the outer edge of the pads where they might contact the wear ridge. Ensure that you repeat the work on the opposite side of the car as well, and note that if just one pad or one disc is below limits then all front pads or both discs must be replaced. If the discs are replaced, the pads must be replaced unless they're near perfect and almost totally unworn. If the pad surfaces are uneven then they must either be refaced to be totally flat or discarded and replaced.

A common trick to grind down the disc wear ridge is to jack up the car at the corner you're working on, remove the wheel and to then firmly support the car with an axle stand (vital). Chock the rear wheels and apply the handbrake. Get in the car and start the engine, engage first gear. Because of the way that the differential works, the front wheel which is on the ground will lose all traction and remain immobile and the front hub on the opposite side will turn instead, but as it's in the air it won't move the car. You can then carefully use an old sharpened and heat hardened flat blade screwdriver, chisel or best of all a lathe cutting tool to slowly cut away the ridges. Once done, repeat on the other side. For safety, never attempt this unless there is someone else watching out for you. Also ensure that you have no loose hair, ,jewellery or clothing which can get caught on the wheel hub or the wheel studs.

I want cheats for Ridge racers5

I'm not sure if you're asking for cheat codes for use with Ridge Racer DS for the Nintendo DS, or Ridge Racer V for the Playstation 2 - Unfortunately, neither game has actual cheats built into them. You can, however, use a hex editor tool (also referred to as a Trainer, Gameshark, or Action Replay), which would allow you to cheat.
