Door Closing and Door Alignment

The base grille covers the leveling screws and roller assemblies
located at the bottom of the refrigerator cabinet below the freezer
door or drawer. Before making adjustments, remove the base
grille and move the refrigerator to its final location.
1. Remove the two screws fastening the base grille to the
cabinet, and set the screws aside. Grasp the grille and pull
it toward you.
2. Move the refrigerator to its final location.
NOTE: To allow the refrigerator to roll easier, raise the leveling
legs off the floor by turning the leveling screws
counterclockwise. The front rollers will be touching the floor.
3. So the doors will close easier, use a ¹⁄₄" hex driver to turn both
leveling screws clockwise. This will raise the front of the
refrigerator tilting it slightly downward to the rear. Turn both
leveling screws the same amount.
NOTE: Having someone push against the top of the
refrigerator takes some weight off the leveling screws.
This makes it easier to turn the screws.

4. Open and close the doors to make sure they close as easily
as you like. If not, increase the tilt by turning both leveling
screws clockwise. It may take several turns of the leveling
screw to allow the doors to close easier.
5. Check for door alignment. If one door is lower than the other,
adjust the leveling screw, on the lower side of the refrigerator.
Using a ¹⁄₄" hex driver, turn the screw clockwise to raise that
side of the refrigerator until the doors are aligned. It may take
several turns of the leveling screw to raise the refrigerator.
NOTE: Having someone push against the top of the
refrigerator takes some weight off the leveling screws.
This makes it easier to turn the screws.

6. Make sure the refrigerator is steady. If the refrigerator seems
unsteady or rolls forward when the door or drawer is opened,
adjust the leveling screws. Using a ¹⁄₄" hex driver, turn the
leveling screw on each side clockwise until the rollers are up
and the leveling feet are firmly against the floor.
7. Replace the base grille by aligning the holes in the grille with
the holes in the cabinet and fasten using the screws removed
in Step 1.

REFRIGERATOR USE

Opening and Closing Doors

(French door models)
There are two refrigerator compartment doors. The doors can be
opened and closed either separately or together.
There is a vertically-hinged seal on the left-hand refrigerator door.
When the left-hand door is opened, the hinged seal
automatically folds inward so that it is out of the way.
When both doors are closed, the hinged seal automatically
forms a seal between the two doors.
