So there is not reset button, but make sure the thermostat inside the refrigerator AND FREEZER is set to a temperature that will cool. Other than that the unit could be in defrost mode which can last up to 45 minutes. If It doesn't start cooling in 45 minutes, then it sounds like the thermostat failed in the transition when you moved it so the thermostat behind the dial you turn to adjust the temperature inside the freezer will need to be ordered and replaced. Below is a link to the part you'll need to order for your model.
