1. Place the freezer and refrigerator in front of the opening
(freezer on the left, refrigerator on the right).
2. Adjust the leveler legs so that each appliance is level and
plumb and at the same height as the other appliance.
NOTE: The freezer and refrigerator each have two front
leveler legs that are adjustable. The back of each cabinet
rests on two fixed supports.
3. Place a leveling tool on top of the cabinet. Check the level
first side to side and then front to back.
To raise a corner - Turn the leveler leg clockwise.
To lower a corner - Turn the leveler leg counterclockwise.
4. Repeat Step 3 for the other appliance until both the freezer
and refrigerator are level, plumb and at the same height.
5. Adjust the front leveler legs enough to lift the cabinet up off of
the floor.
NOTE: If your model is equipped with rollers, the front legs
should be lowered enough to lift the rollers off of the floor to
ensure that the freezer does not roll forward when the door is
opened.

WARNING
Excessive Weight Hazard
Use two or more people to move and install
refrigerator.
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
appliance for cleaning or service, be sure to cover the floor
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.
