Make sure the fridge is level I would let it sit about 12 hours level before trying again, inside the cooling unit is an ammonia solution and when you park off level that solution can stop moving and cause a blockage.

There is a reset that you can try. Under the outside access panel is a circuit board, in a nut shell you are going to get a wire and strip back the ends and stick the wire in a connector to ground, when doing this hold the wire for 15 seconds. IT is going to depend on the style board you have as well. Click HERE and HERE for the reset procedures. One style board has a 6 pin connector and the other has a 16 pin. Follow the directions step by step and you should be able to get it to reset.

IF you have more questions or concerns please feel free to contact me.
