The feet (the round things underneath) should be of the screw in/screw out type. If its leaning back you need to screw the front feet in some or if not possible then raise (screw out) the back feet..

if you have a solid floor which is level it shouldn't matter if its full or empty. If you have a suspended floor the weight at the back may cause this to settle when full.

You have to push my fridge door shut..


Make sure that it is level side ti side and even better to have it to be leaning back slightly. Another thing that will help is to have the door shelves full. This added weight will help the door shut on its own. The last trick is to apply some cooking oil to the door seal to make it shut easier.

Refrigoator door does not vacuum seal tight like it used to when new. Door barely stays closed on gasket.


What I hears sounds as if the refrigerator needs re-leveling. Here are some basic things to do as in this video. Every refrigerator is not always the same but the idea is to cause the doors to shut inward if you should be standing in the front and let both doors loose from your hands the doors should shut inward and firmly if not over adjusted in the final steps. Your model is a nice large model! Here is what one user manual mentioned below.

NOTE: Custom or full-overlay door panels must be installed

before leveling.

1. Open the door and place the level on top of the refrigerator

frame as shown. Check to see whether the refrigerator is level

from left to right.

2. Use the leveling bolts to adjust the leveling legs until the

refrigerator is level from left to right.

3. Place the level(s) on shelf or shelves. Check to see whether

the refrigerator is level from front to back.

4. Use the leveling bolts to adjust the leveling legs until the

refrigerator is level from front to back.

5. Be sure that all four leveling legs contact the floor and

support the full weight of the refrigerator.

6. Make final check to ensure the refrigerator is level.

Adjust Door Swing

1. Check that the refrigerator door can open freely. If the door

opens too wide or you are installing full-overlay custom

panels using a Trimless Trim Kit, you should adjust the door

swing.

2. Remove the door stop screw from the bottom hinge.

3. Hold the door open to a position that is less than 90°.

4. Replace the door stop screw in the bottom hinge and tighten.

NOTE: If you are using full-overlay custom panels with the

Trimless Trim Kit, the door stop should be replaced in either

the 90° or 110° position. See "Handle and Door Clearances

for Custom Panel Series."

Install Side Panel

If the built-in area depth is 25" (63.5 cm) or more, the side panels

can be installed inside the side trim or attached to the outside of

the side trim.

IMPORTANT: Thermador is not responsible for the removal or

addition of molding or decorative panels that would not allow

access to the refrigerator for service.

1. For the inside side trim piece, slide the front edge of the

routed side panel into the trim piece.

2. Nail the rear edge of the panel to the support board.

A. Level to check left to right leveling

B. Level to check front to back leveling

A. Rear leveling bolt

B. Front leveling bolt

A. Door Stop in 130° position

B. 110° position

C. 90° position

Hotpoint side by side makes a high pitched "howling" noise. Sometimes is worse then others and will sometimes stop when the door is opened.


ANY TIME YOU HAVE SIDE BY SIDE REFRIGERATOR IT ALWAYS RECOMMANDED TO HAVE LEVEL FLOOR AND YOU MOST SET UP THE BOTTOM ADJUSTEMENT SO THE REFRIDG CAN BE LEVREL AND STABLE WHILE RUNING.

Hotpoint


Check level of machine as may be leaning slightly forward. Use front feet to adjust to level or slightly lifted at the front. This will compensate for any slight buckle in the plastics on the drawer compartment.

I need to level the refrigerator


You can level the left and right side but the front top should be leaning slightly back toward the wall behind so the doors will close properly. Remember to never level the refrigerator completely level as this will cause the doors to pop open when you close one the other will pop open. If you need more detailed information let me know.

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.

How do i level my Kenmore refrigerator model number 25374824406??


You should level the refrigerator on left and right side and the front door side the top leaning just a little to the wall behind the refrigerator. This keep the doors from swinging out or not closing well. Never level a refrigerator all the way around, Thanks, Sea Breeze

NOT LEVEL


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.

Hotpoint side by side door problem


Check the refrigerator for level. Front can be a little higher than the back. Check for products that many be stored that may be holding the door from closing completely. Check the door hinges and make sure they are tight.
