The problem with laying down a fridge or freezer is the compressor lubricating oil can leave the compressor and enter the refrigerator tubing. It is best practice to allow these appliances to stand upright for a period before switching on to allow the oil to run back into the compressor.
Some people say four hours is sufficient and some say six hours. I suppose if some logic was injected into the situation it would depend of how long transportation has taken and the longer it has been horizontal the longer it should stand idle...

There should not be a fire hazard but you should be concerned that the freezer could break down if it is not allowed to vent the heat it produces. The freezer is not intended nor designed to be enclosed The manual must indicate specifications for minimum clearances for rear, top and sides, and may even be indicated on the big yellow sticker on the inside of the door. The clearances must be respected or again, the unit will fail, and the warranty may be voided in such cases.

SOURCE: No power while plugged
It probably has a circuit breaker located on the bottom of the fridge, behind the front filter. Also try looking inside the refridgerator side at the top. It may be red colored to indicate it is safety-related. Just push it in - but don't be surprised if it trips again.
WARNING: RESET ONLY ONCE TO AVOID A FIRE OR ELECTROCUTION SITUATION.
You may have an internal problem, in which case the freezer's circuit breaker is your best friend!
Note that the self-defrosting freezers have a timer that shuts them off periodically so they can defrost. Sometimes the timer does the defrosting in the middle of the day, giving the appearance of a failure. This could be your problem.

not the best way to do it, but if you must, just when oyou getit to its final destination leave standing up for at least 24 hrs before restoring power... you dont want oils from compresoor circulating through unit.. give it the full 24 hrs

Hey friend, thanks for your post!
From my understanding you have recently moved your Frigidaire freezer and it is now displaying the "OF". Normally, that stands for off you should be able to press the "Up" or "Down" arrow three times within five seconds to start your compressor. If you still need a copy of your manual could you provide me with your model number? You can locate your serial tag (which lists your model number) on the inside wall of your freezer. I hope this has been helpful. -Matt
