HI,Yes for most refrigerator you do have wait because the oils come out of the compressor so the oil must settle back down.But some refrigerators you do not have to wait if laid on their side, if it was new in box it will say on box "lay this side down" if not better safe then sorry.

Moved unit, wont get cold

did you transport it upright or laying down.... depending on who you talk to you will get a different answer... i have been in the appliance business for 18 years and have to say the more i hear they are transported laying down the more i hear troubles... either way after transported or moved they should be left sitting for approx. 24 hours to allow all the oil to settle back down,,,also could have developed a leak in the sealed system one of the refrigerant lines leaking.

I bought a used Kenmore upright freezer, it's been on for over 24 hrs, and it freezeswell, BUT won't turn off. Runs alllll the time. Any suggestions??

Did you transport it STANDING or LYING down?
If Standing 4 possibilities:
1. The thermostat is hosed (replace)I had one like this and just put it on a $6.00 24hr time to turn on for 1hr every 5 hrs. (New Thermostat was $40.00)

2. The heat exchange fins on the back are dirty(clean with broom and air/vacuum cleaner)

3. The Door seals arent sealing and cold air is falling out the bottom, pulling hot air in the top (rehang door or replace seal) Note: a piece of paper 2" by 8" should be hard to pull out all the way around when closed. Like a cash register reciept. Cleaning with armor-All and then thinly coating with Vaseline may help
4. The Freon is shot and needs a recharge. (Costs $40-100.00)

If transported Lying down, there is now air in the lines and it needs to stand OFF for 24hrs. You may have hosed the pump with the air/freon mix, but let it stand so the air can surface and retry

Freezing in refrig and freezer.

call the tech back... the control board may be fauilty or install incorrectly.. the water leak is from a pluged drain hose or your ice maker leaking not from a control board...
