I know that, with older fridges, you should let them sit for about a day before you start the compressor again.

the letting them sit, is only if they were on thier side or back for an extended period of time. that isnt just with old fridges, new ones too. oil from the compressor will run into the coils. when you plug it in, the coolant will freeze the oil, then burn up the compressor. thanks for the link.

Wow does that thing bring back memories! Not the least of which is Dan Aykroyd showing his a** on the SNL "refridgerator repairman" skit! Too bad yours is a GE and not a Norge!
