Leveling and Door Closing
Your refrigerator has two adjustable front feet -- one on the right
and one on the left. In most cases, the refrigerator should be
steady when both feet are touching the floor. If your refrigerator
seems unsteady or if you want the doors to close more easily,
adjust the refrigerator's tilt using the instructions below:
1. Move the refrigerator into its final location. If necessary, open
both doors to 90 ° and remove the base grille. See Graphic 1.
2. The two leveling feet are located on the brackets on each side
of the product. See Graphic 8.
NOTE: Having someone push against the top of the refrigerator
takes some weight off the leveling feet. This makes it easier to
make adjustments.
3. Use a 1/4"open-ended or adjustable wrench to adjust the
leveling feet. Turn the leveling foot to the left to raise that side
of the product, or turn it to the right to lower that side of the
4. Open both doors again and check that they close as easily as
you like. If not, tilt the refrigerator slightly more to the rear by
turning the leveling feet to the left. It may take several more
turns, and you should turn both leveling feet the same
NOTE: Whenever you need to move the refrigerator, turn the
leveling feet to the right until they are no longer touching the
ground. This will allow the refrigerator to roll more easily.
Door Alignment
A refrigerator that is not level from side-to-side
may appear to
have doors that are not properly aligned. If the doors appear this
way, use the instructions
in the previous section to check the
The doors are designed to be slightly different heights when the
refrigerator is empty, in order to account for the weight of food
that will be placed on the doors. If the doors are still not aligned
after checking the leveling and loading the refrigerator with food,
follow the steps below to adjust the door alignment.
1. If necessary, open both doors to 90 ° and remove the base
grille. See Graphic 1.
2. Locate the alignment screw on the bottom hinge of the
refrigerator door. See Graphic 9.
3. Use a 5/le" open-ended or adjustable wrench to turn the screw.
To raise the refrigerator door, turn the screw to the right. To
lower the door, turn the screw to the left.
4. Check that the doors are even at the top. If necessary,
continue to turn the alignment screw until the doors are
5. Open both doors to 90 °. Replace the base grille. See

PARTS INCLUDED: Handles (2), hex key, spare setscrews
NOTE: Handle mounting setscrews are preinstalled in the handle.
1. Remove handles from packaging inside the refrigerator.
NOTE: To avoid damaging the handles, place them on a towel
or other soft surface.
Open the refrigerator door. Place the handle on the shoulder
screws (located on the front of the refrigerator door), with the
setscrews facing the freezer door.
Firmly push the handle into the door, but do not push down.
Insert the short end of the hex key into each setscrew, and
tighten each screw.

additional quarter-turn. The handle is not properly installed
without this extra tightening.
If necessary, use a Phillips screwdriver to remove the shoulder
screws from the door.

the freezer door handle, with the setscrews facing the
refrigerator door.
