Adjustable rollers behind the base grille enable you to
move the refrigerator away from the wall for cleaning.
These rollers should be set so the refrigerator rests
automatically from a halfway-open position, there is a
built-in tilt from the front to the back of the cabinet.

it out.

shut-off valve, fittings and instructions is available at extra cost from your dealer. There should be
sufficient tubing for the icemaker from the cold water supply to allow you to move the refrigerator out
from the wall several feet (approximately 8 feet of 1/4" copper tubing in three 10-inch diameter coils.)
