Hello, if its not down to temperature yet the sy ef (system efficiency) code will most likely go away in a few hours... moving it, if it had been laid on its side dislocates the refrigerant temporarily... it will generally self correct. If you rate my answer here positively, I will be able to hold the question open for you without any time limit for any follow up you might need.
