Lower the front. But the back needs to be slightly lower that the front in order for the door to swing shut atomatically. While your working under the front, check the condenser coil (wire racks, usually 2-3 layers with a 1/2 inch space between them). Use a vaccum cleaner and **** out any dust. This will make the refrig run less and cool better.

How do I level my domestic kelvinator fridge . the floor seems to be level . I recently relocated to Cairns


the front feet under the door opening are adjustable screws. You may have to use a shifter to get them to move as they mat be rusted . adjust so the fridge slopes slightly to the rear. This keeps any moisture on the back wall to drain out the hole and the door will close if left open

Top door will not close by itself on fridge


Sounds like the floor of the house.. might be your problem..Try moving the fridge out of its position and build a small flat platform in that place and level it, then place your fridge on top of it..just in case u may need a little final adjustment get those small wooden wedge shims when you get your wood..they sell them at lowes or Most lumber yards....that should take care of the leveling..good luck..good luck

How do I level the deck on a John Deere X500 mower


FInd and buy a deck level guage (makes it so much easier) photo.25191349-sc2hyhwnmj3wm0xvqhiyjoyo-1-0_0.jpgAdjust the front tire pressures to 14 psi. Set the rear tires to 10 psi. Make sure that the mower is on level ground,concrete driveway or garage floor. Set you deck height knob to 2.5 inches. Move the blades to where the blade tips are pointing to the side of the mower deck. Level the deck side to side by adjusting the lift link nuts,15mm or 17mm wrench. Get the side to side as level and possible and close to a number or mark on the guage. Move the blade tips to the front of the mower deck. Check the front to back and have a 1/8" to 1/4" lower on the front of the blades than the back. 18mm and 19mm wrenches for the front adjusting bracket.

How do I level my fridge?


It is rare that the rear wheels adjust. Most of the adjustment is in the front wheels. They sometimes put screw jacks in the front as well.

Refrigerator door closing automatically


Most refrigerators have the opposite problem with little kids pulling the door open then walking away leaving the door open. You can resolve this issue by raising the refrigerator up slightly. .it's helpful to have 2 people for this task. On the front of the fridge on each corner or there of. There are a adjustable leg and by adjusting the leg in you will change the level of the fridge. The farther they are turned out the fridge will lean back and that will with the force of simple gravity make the door close on its own without any help the further in the legs are turned the fridge will lean towards the front. But with some help you can make the cabinet of the unit perfectly level then when you open the door it will stay right where you leave it

The fridge door won't close all the way , is there an adjustment on the hinges


Check the bottom fridge door hinge. There should be two plastic cams, one that mounts to the door and one that mounts to the hinge. From your discription it sounds as if thoes cams have broke and need to be replaced

I need to level the refrigerator. The back needs


Hello Monty, If you can roll the fridge out, you'll likely see the adjustment screws for the rear wheels, (if equipped). If the rear wheels are fixed, as most are, you can put a couple of wooden shims down on the floor where the wheels will be and roll the fridge back into place and then make the leveling adjustments from the front wheels.

If the amount of height adjustment is greater than a half an inch, you can use a solid piece of plywood the width of the fridge and about 4-6" wide and place that at the back. Roll the fridge in until it hits the plywood and tilt the fridge forward about 2 inches and push it back until the rear wheels are on the plywood. You can then, again, level the fridge using the front wheel/leg levelers.

I've found that it's easier to get a good idea of just how much out of level the space is where the fridge is being placed. Then you can make the changes using the best materials for the situation. Shims are fine for small adjustments, while the full width plywood is more consistent and easier to adjust, as the fridge will likley get moved out every 6 months or so, for cleaning of the coils and behind the fridge.

Remember that ideally, you want the front of the fridge just slightly higher than the back, so the doors will close by themselves, when opened almost 90 degrees and released by hand. Gravity should then take over and automatically close the doors, ensuring a good seal to keep the fridge closed and running properly.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Fridge is leaning back, how do you level it? it is model afi2538aes


Check first if it is due to the body of the fridge being distorted or just the leveling of the floor. For the floor, others would purchase a separate base for the unit where its feet can be adjusted. Others would have themselves fabricate one. But it is imperative to find the cause first.

Gshl5kgxls refrigerator is tilting.


well the simple solution is wood shims to level it out. Could just be your floor is not quite level. I use the cheap pine shims that you get at the hardware store.
