How to Level your Refrigerator

There are four wheels on the unit. The two in the back only move front to back. The two in the front can move and turn to the side. The leveling feet are positioned in front of the two front wheels. These are the only two leveling feet.

To minimize noise and vibration, the refrigerator must be installed on a solidly constructed floor:


To avoid vibration, the unit must be level. If required, adjust the leveling legs to compensate for the unevenness of the floor.

The front should be slightly higher than the rear to aid in the door closing.

The leveling legs can be turned easily by pushing against the top of the refrigerator to take the weight off the feet. Turn the leveling legs clockwise to raise the unit or counterclockwise to lower it.

Carpeting and soft tile surfaces are not recommended.

Never install the refrigerator on a platform or weakly supported structure.

Note: When moving the refrigerator for cleaning or service, be sure to protect the floor. Always pull the refrigerator straight out when moving it. Do not wiggle or walk the refrigerator when trying to move it or floor damage could occur.

The wheels and leveling feet are always located behind the lower cover (kick plate). To access the leveling feet, the lower cover must be removed.

To remove the lower cover, perform the following:

Open the door(s) of the unit.

On bottom mount and French door refrigerators, open the freezer drawer.

On side-by-side units, open both the refrigerator and freezer doors.

Remove the two screws attaching the lower cover to the unit.
