Refrigerator and freezer will not cool after being unplugged for a few months.

I have a 6 year old Kenmore refrigerator model 253.64802400. A few months ago I unplugged it as I was moving. After moving it into the new house, I let it sit in it's position for a few days before plugging it in. The unit has power as the lights work, but neither the refrigerator or freezer section get cold. I have checked the dials and all are set in the middle settings for the cold settings. Is there a reset button anywhere I need to press or would it just stop working because it sat unplugged for a few months?

Thanks for any help you can provide!

I realize it has been several years since this has been asked but did you ever figure the problem out? We're having the same problem with our fridge.

Not true. If you have a voltage meter preferably one with a amp clamp. All you have to do is test the amp draw with it running. If the charge is correct it will be drawing the proper amount of amps. Providing that all the fans are functioning and coils clean. Will be slightly high due to a warm return air drawing in blowing across the evaporater coil.
