We are doing a kitchen remodel and had to move the refrigerator. About 2 days after moving it, we discovered that the freezer had completely defrosted (lost all the food) and the refrigerator is barely cool. We moved it back onto a hard, level surface and turned up the thermostats but it didn't make any difference. Is there a circuit breaker in the unit that would have been tripped off when we moved it? We tilted it very slightly.
I noticed that my refrigerator is running but not cold at all. I noticed the problem happen about 2 days. All the foods were gone bad. Can you let me know how to turn on the defrosted? or do you think this is a different problem? Product is KitchenAid and it is 5 years old.
Unit has reached its life expectancy. tilting causes oil to move into the condenser and is damaging in itself, newer units can survive moving, but when you expect both units to recover,i have to recommend replacement

First, are you sure that the machine is not filling?
I go on calls all the time for this problem and it turns out than the machine fills but the wash motor does not run.This leaves soap in the bottom of the DW so it looks like it did not fill with water. This is a common problem in dishwashers that have not been run for a few months, and is quite common after a remodel. If it IS getting water, the motor is probably stuck. If it is Not getting water the first step is to locate the "over fill" float inside the dishwasher. This will be a round sort of mushroom looking thing on the floor of the machine near the door on the right or left. Make sure it moves freely up and down. It will only move about 1/4 inch but If it is stuck up, the machine will not fill. If float is O.K. then check the water source. Turn of water to DW. Remove the kickplate under DW door and disconnect the waterline from fill valve (should be on front left side of unit). Run waterline into bucket then turn on the water. If you don't get water call your plumber. If you get water then you need to check the fill valve. Connect a volt meter to the 2 wires on the fill valve. Start DW. First the diswasher should start draining, then it will start filling. At this point (a few minutes into the cycle) you should see 120v AC at the fill valve. If you do see 120v Ac, replace the valve. If you don't , then turn off the machine and check the float switch. This is located under the DW right under the mushroom thingy. The switch should have continuity when the DW is empty. If there is no continuity then replace the switch.
if the freezer is fine it could be the refrigerator cold control part # ap3964661 and its is located in the temp control compartment in the refrigerator compartment topwall, unscrew the panel after unplugging refrigerator,there are 2 controls side by side it will be the one on the left as you face the refrig and be the control with the refrigerator control on it the one to its right is for the freezer,that one is o.k.
If it were me I would use a small hole saw and run my braided stainless lines below the kick plate if code allows or at the back of the adjoining cabinet at a height which would not conflict with contents. You can buy an ABS dishwasher drain kit at Lowes or HD
