The refrigerator worked while it was in the garage. When it moved into the house it stopped working. The lights are on but it is not getting cold even though the temp settings are set to cold? What can I do?

There is only one source of cold in many refrigerators. If yours is a top freezer, then most likely it is in the freezer.
But the thermostat that you set temperature with is in the refrigerator, not the freezer.
In the cold garages, what can happen is that the refrigerator stays cold enough that it does not call for cold. So the freezer does not get enough cold.
The freezer control works by diverting cold air into the freezer WHEN THE RERIGERATOR HAS TURNED ON THE COOLING. If it is not turned on, oh well.
The best you can do for this is to put both on max cold. Then the refrigerator will call for more cold at a lower temperature, and the freezer will get it more often and will divert more when it is cooling.
This can result in the refrigerator freezing things too. You can try raising the refrigerator setting JUST A LITTLE and see if both work, but keep freezer on max cool.
This works for my situation, but ambient temperature fluctuations in the garage make this dicey. We don't put things like lettuce in the refrigerator in the garage in the winter because freezing damages them.
ck power at new house ( the plug ) do the lights come on in frig ? if so look for wires under frig that may have been puled off during move .. this should not be a tuff one . / the frig should not been damaged by beeing off . did you lay it down dueing the move ( it chould have been kept upright .. as laying down causes the oil to ru up in the cold coil .) hope this hepls mm
Yes, I can help you. (If you like).But you will need to answer a few questions. For example was the freezer and refrigerator doors left closed for all that time with out allowing the moisture inside to escape and not cause the controls to rust or short out.
