Question about Refrigerators
A refrigerator about 2 years old was in storage over winter.
plugged in, compressor runs but not cooling at all.
My fridge and freezer just stopped cooling all of a sudden. I hear the compressor running and every couple of min there is a clicking noise. Is there a reset switch or something that I can do to start it working again? The lights are working but the freezer and fridge are room temp.

Well... not being a pro... I do know that 1 of two things probably happened. When the gas is not cooled for a prolonged time, it could slowly leak out. When the refrigerator is then switched on again, the compressor will run but it will not cool down.
The other possibility could be related to the transport/moving of the appliance rather than the storage. If a refrigerator is switched on to quickly after it was moved/transported, compressor oil could have flown into the system and did not flow back down yet when it was switched on. This might also result in the appliance not cooling down properly.
