How do I level my refrigerator?

Refrigerators have 2-5 leveling legs that are used to balance the refrigerator. If the refrigerator is not leveled correctly it could affect door operation, self-closing features, and the cooling system.

  1. Start by placing a level on one of the interior shelves and measure the side to side balance. Raise or lower the legs on one side by rotating them by hand until the bubble is between the lines on the sight glass. 
  2. Once the side to side tilt has been corrected change the level orientation to measure front to back. The fridge should be slightly raised at the front so that it is not perfectly level. Typically this is around a 1/4 inch of extra height for the front leveling legs.
