Not really a good move but sometimes lying it down cant be helped. Typically when lying it down, the oil in the compressor migrates into the system. You need to allow fridge to stand for about 3 hours before switching back on to allow as much oil back into the compressor bowl as possible
If after an hour, and the compartments are not cold enough, then switch off and call a technician.

You may have laid refrigerator down during the move causing oil to migrate to the evaporator. If this has happened leave refrigerator unplugged for about twelve hours so the oil can slowly seep back down to the compressor. Trying to speed this process up will slow you down and may cause the compressor overload to fail. Once the compressor is ready to start cooling you can leave refrigerator plugged in, Thanks Sea Breeze

Hiya, u should leave a fridge and freezer after moving it at least 24 hours before switching it on because the gases need to settle. If it has been switched off perhaps you need to check the plug just in case the wires have loosened. hope i was of some help to you kind regards

Kitchen refrig will not dispense ice or water


IF anything went bad it would be the water valve but is shouldnt have failed just because you didnt turn the water on.Just for grins, unplug the wires to teh water valve and plug them back in to make sure you have a good connection.Then unplug the fridge for a minute and make sure the water is on , and plug the fridge back in.Your solenoid may be stuck.THese are just things I would try..I'm mechanically inclined but am not a appliance repairman.

Fridge and freexer are not working


the fridge has to be set upright for about 24 hours before using again.  we set our fridge on its side to move and it did not work after we got to our new place.  we ended up getting rid of it.  our repairman said if we had let it reset itself, fluids and all, then plugged it in - it would have been fine --after 24 hrs.

Could be a jammed fan or something could have moved inside to block the opening. Some units have deflectors in the openings...did one of those cover the opening on the fridge side? Did you overpack your freezer and block the air flow from there to the fridge?
