Door Closing
Your refrigerator has two front adjustable rollers – one on the right
and one on the left. If your refrigerator seems unsteady or you
want the doors to close easier, adjust the refrigerator's tilt using
the instructions below.
1. Remove the base grille. See the Base Grille graphic in
"Refrigerator Doors." The two leveling screws are part of the
front roller assemblies which are at the base of the
refrigerator on either side.
2. Use a screwdriver to adjust the leveling screws. Turn the
leveling screw to the right to raise that side of the refrigerator
or turn the leveling screw to the left to lower that side. It may
take several turns of the leveling screws to adjust the tilt of
the refrigerator.
NOTE: Having someone push against the top of the
refrigerator takes some weight off the leveling screws and
rollers. This makes it easier to adjust the screws.
3. Open both doors again and check to make sure that they
close as easily as you like. If not, tilt the refrigerator slightly
more to the rear by turning both leveling screws to the right. It
may take several more turns, and you should turn both
leveling screws the same amount.
