ROLLERS
The rollers have 3 purposes:
Rollers adjust so the door closes easily when opened
about halfway.
Rollers adjust so the refrigerator is firmly positioned on
the floor and does not wobble.
Rollers allow you to move the refrigerator away from the
wall for cleaning.
To adjust the rollers, remove the
base grille by pulling it out at the
bottom.
Turn the roller adjusting
screws clockwise to raise the
refrigerator, counterclockwise
to lower it. Use an adjustable
wrench (3/8 hex head bolt) or
pliers.
To replace base grille, line up the
clips on back of grille between
the bar and the bottom of the
cabinet. Push forward until grille
