Failure to do so can result in back or other injury.
When Moving Your Freezer or Refrigerator:
Your freezer and refrigerator are heavy. When moving the

with cardboard or hardboard to avoid floor damage. Always
pull the appliance straight out when moving it. Do not wiggle
or "walk" the appliance when trying to move it, as floor
damage could occur.

IMPORTANT: If the electrical outlets are not centered in the back
wall of the opening, move the appliance on the opposite side of
the outlets into the opening first.
1. Cover the floor with cardboard or hardboard to avoid floor
damage.
2. Attach a plastic foam rear spacer (I) to the rear center of both
appliances.
NOTE: The rear spacers (I) ensure that the 2 appliances are
positioned the correct distance from the wall to avoid cabinet
damage.
3. Slide the first appliance into the opening far enough to
connect the power cord to the electrical outlet.
IMPORTANT: Wait 24 hours before plugging in your refrigerator
or freezer to avoid compressor failure.

loosening the three hinge bolts, moving the hinge and
