How do I fix my fridge that isn't getting cold?

I just got a mini fridge with no freezer and plugged it in a few hours after moving as stated in instructions. It has an open back and there's an exposed metal part that started to freeze up and is dripping.

    If this fridge has recently been stored\moved on it's side you need to unplug it and let it sit upright for 24 hours before powering it on.  You need to give it 24 hours plugged in to reach temperature.  Otherwise it sounds like it's low on refrigerant and with a mini fridge that means it's basically garbage since they are not made to be serviced easily.

    Look and see if it's got a Heat/Cool switch set the wrong way

    Contact either the place from where you bought it or the manufacturer.
