I have a about ten year old Amana refrigerator, with freezer on the bottom that was in the garage and working fine.  I moved it into the house and now it doesn't get cold anymore.  The refrigerator section gets down to about 48 - 50 degree and the freezer will get to about 33 - 35 degree.

During the move the refrigerator was laid down on its side for about ten minutes.  What could the problem be?  And the solution?

Thanks.

Sounds like oil has run out of the compressor and now has your frig in a partial restriction.  Probably has the cap tube, strainer and evaperator clogged with oil.  All of this will have to be replaced and the frig recharged.  This will be very expensive. A ref. used cannot ever be laid over to move the unit.
