Unpack the Refrigerator

WARNING
Tip Over Hazard
Refrigerator is top heavy and tips easily when not
completely installed.
Keep doors taped closed until refrigerator is
completely installed.
Use two or more people to move and install
refrigerator.
Failure to do so can result in death or serious injury.
IMPORTANT:
Do not remove the protective film until the refrigerator is in its
operating position.
All four leveling legs must contact the floor to support and
stabilize the full weight of the refrigerator.
Keep the cardboard shipping piece or plywood under the
refrigerator until it is installed in the operating position.
1. Remove and save the literature package and parts bag taped
to the refrigerator door. Remove the four brackets (two on
each side) that attach the shipping base to the refrigerator
bottom.
NOTE: Do not remove tape and door bracing until the
refrigerator is in its final position.
2. If necessary, reduce the tipping radius. See "Tipping Radius"
for ceiling height requirements or "Reduce Tipping Radius" for
step-by-step instructions. If you do not need to reduce the
tipping radius, proceed to "Move the Refrigerator into House."

Reduce Tipping Radius

(if required)
Before bringing the refrigerator into the home, be sure there is
adequate ceiling height to stand the refrigerator upright. See
"Tipping Radius" in the "Design Specifications" section for more
information.
If you do not have adequate ceiling height to stand the refrigerator
upright, the tipping radius can be reduced by removing the top
grille and side trims (see the following chart).
