How can I level my refrigerator, my floor is not level.
My floor is not level. My refrigerator doors are starting to hang uneven and the walls inside are starting to crack. The refrigerator has rollers on the bottom and I can't figure out how to level the rollers.

Is this a new problem? Or have the doors always been uneven?
Is your floor level? A tilting floor can make an appliance look uneven. Even if you assume your floor is level, it might be worth checking. Floors can change over time.
Is one door level but the other out of plumb? If so, the problem could be the hinges on the uneven door. This could be caused, for example, by overloading the door trays. One of the hinges could have become bent or damaged. If this is the case, it should be replaced. Check all the hinges carefully for signs of damage or wear. If both doors are out of plumb, it's possible that both doors have damaged hinges.
Another question is: just how uneven are they? Are they uneven by less than 3 millimetres? Or more than 2 centimetres? Obviously the bigger the unevenness the more likely you will need to get it fixed. But if it's tiny, it might be just cosmetic and unless it really bothers you it could be left alone.
on the bottom of the fridgerator there is small feet that screw up and down to ajust on the frunt and rear it uses a 1/2 wrenh or 9/16 inch wrench to raise or lower the feet. however the door screws on top and bottom could be loos as well.
Your refrigerator has a drain that leads to the exterior drain pan beneath the refrigerator. Occasionally this drain can become clogged resulting in standing water inside your refrigerator. A similar drain exists in the freezer, which when clogged results in ice build up on the floor of the freezer.
The drain is located either on the floor of the refrigerator, beneath the vegetable crisper, or in the wall behind a drain funnel.
Clear the drain by forcing a solution of water and bleach or water and baking soda into it with a basting syringe. If the solution will not flow through, slide a length of ¼ inch flexible tubing into the drain tube to push the clog through to the drain pan. Remove the tubing after clearing the clog.
NOTE-(This may be a leveling issue as well)
It is important for the refrigerator to be level. If it is not level, doors may not open or close properly and may not seal tightly. Also, drainage from the defrost cycle might be impaired as might the ice making cycle. The appliance was engineered based on it being installed in a level position. While there may be some tolerance for out-of-level installation, the appliance will operate at its best when properly leveled.
Place a level on top of the refrigerator near the front. Do not put it on the door because the door may not be aligned with the refrigerator case. Check that the refrigerator is level from side to side. Next turn the level to check that it is level from front to back.
If it is not level, adjust one or more of the adjustable leveling feet until it is level. The feet are bolts that can be turned to raise or lower the refrigerator. If they cannot be adjusted with your fingers, use a crescent wrench or pliers.
If you have an ice-maker, it should also be checked for level after first leveling the refrigerator. An ice maker that is out of level will spill water into the ice bin or into the freezer. It can be repositioned by loosening the mounting screws, adjusting it for level and then re tightening the screws.
The #1 cause for this problem: The floor beneath the fridge is uneven, causing the refrigerator "box" to be out of square. Adjust the levelers on the fridge bottom to compensate for the uneven floor. That should do it.
Yes. The unit should sit level.
Screw the front legs out to level it up.
If that does not give enough height,
Have someone help you tilt it to the rear and place small wood blocks under the front legs.
