Wheels for GE fridge won't budge

I need to move my fridge and I can not get the wheels to budge. When they were installing the fridge it rolled very easily. How can I get it roll on the wheels underneath?

SOURCE: How to move the fridge

The wheels are probably OK, the tech likely lowered the leveling feet in the front to keep it from rolling by accident. Turn the little level legs (the screw up into the fridge) until the weight is back on the roller wheels, then you should be able to move it. A pair of "channel lock" pliers on the rubber feet work the best depending on how much weight is on them.

I want to move my fridge but it's locked in place. How to unlock?


Hello Tina;



My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.



You did not post your model number which is located on a label on the inside liner wall of your fresh food section.



First remove the bottom grill or toe plate in front of your refrigerator. This plastic piece is either held on with one screw at each end or pop out clips. If clips pull the plate straight out about 2" from each end. This plate is easier to remove with both doors open.



Refrigerator Leveling Screws: Most refrigerators have two leveling screws in the front, one on each side. These screws are for leveling the refrigerator from rolling on the wheels. Turn these screws counter clockwise.



Refrigerator Wheel Locks: Some refrigerators have a lever bar on the outside of the front wheels to lock the wheels in place.



Refrigerator Independent Wheel adjustment Screws: Some refrigerators have two hex head screws on each side. They raise and lower both the front and back wheels.

The "rubber covering" on my fridge wheels is scuffed off and the new wheels they sent me don't have the rubber covering. How do I replace this covering?


Hello Jim;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

Refrigerator manufacturers do not field test their designs before putting them on the market. They make their design changes based on customer complaints and field technicians doing repairs under warrantee.

Now, neither your front or rear wheels have a rubber covering. I am not surprised. A refrigerator is a lot of weight to move even on hard rubber wheels.

Current front wheels:

The rear casters are hard to install. They have a history of cracking and falling apart and are difficult to replace. LG has a history of high service calls.

We have a built in Jenn Air refrigerator Model #JS48FSDBDA


Remove the kick plate at the bottom, then you will see the head of a bolt this raises and lowers the wheels, I'm assuming your wheels are up turn bolt clockwise. Thier will be a bolt on each side. The wheels are contained inside of a sheetmetal housing. Once the wheels are down you will be able to roll it back and forth. Go to www.appliancehelponline.com enter your model # and it will bring up a diagram of your unit. The diagram needed is the one for the cabinet. Hope this helps.

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!
