SOURCE: Leveling new Kitchenaid Fridge

Hi, Remove the front kick plate and locate the adjustment screws in front corners. Usually 3/8" or 5/16" head bolts.
Realize, there is only so much adjustment. You might have to level the back side with thin boards or shims.
I hope this helps. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

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.

How to make the freezer door on a kenmore elite 74033 tilt


Refrig of the year: Kenmore Elite 74033 Refrigerator
Consumer Reports Rated: Excellent

Hello Charles,

Just when I'm thinking Sears SERVICE is NOT some sort
of sad/bad joke... you put in a Kenmore Elite Model number...

continued search found your Owners Manual... Pages 10 & 16 are what you want

The front should be slightly higher than the rear to aid in door closing... (page 10)

Your refrigerator has two front leveling legs-one on the right and one on the left. Adjust the legs to alter the tilt from front-to-back or side-to-side. If your refrigerator seems unsteady, or you want the doors to close more easily, adjust the refrigerator's tilt using the instructions below: NOTE: Tools Required: 11/16" wrench or flat blade screwdriver.
1. Turn the leveling leg to the left to raise that side of the refrigerator or to the right to lower it. It may take several turns of the leveling leg to adjust the tilt of the refrigerator.
NOTE: Having someone push backward against the top of the refrigerator takes some weight off of the leveling legs. This makes it easier to adjust the legs.
2. Open both doors again and check to make sure that they close easily. If the doors do not close easily, tilt the refrigerator slightly more to the rear by turning both leveling legs to the left. It may take several more turns, and you should turn both leveling legs the same amount... (page 16)

`` After that...

All you have to do to maximize that efficiency is keep the closure area free of pizza boxes, ice cubes or errant frozen food bags.

Hope this was helpful...

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

How to level Kenmore side by side model 596.50004100?


Using a bullet level, placed on top, side to side, adjust the leveling legs front and rear so that the unit places the bubble in the exact middle. Then, placing the level front to back, adjust the front only leveling legs to where the bubble in the level is only half showing in the middle. This will allow the doors to close by themselves.

The bottom freezer door on my Kenmore refrigerator 795.7900 pops open each time I close the top door. I have tried adjusting the leveling screws and it hasn't helped. Any suggestions?


Glen you keep adjusting but before that try to find this unusual problem. On its own, doesthe freezer door close witha thud? If not it needs adjustment otherwise other problems could surface.

We just purchashed a Frgidaire Freezer model #LFFH21F7HWG. Does it have leveling legs on the back as well as the front? Are we missing 2 leveling legs?


usually the back wheels are rollers that allow you to pull the fridge straight out from the wall, so NO, not leveling in the back, but you don't need it anyway, just use the front adjustments

Side by side door


Depending upon your model it could either be a sagging door hinge (requires replacement) or the fridge my not be level. If you remove the toe-kick panel there will be a couple of bolts which are used for leveling ( they should be indicated as such or shown in your owners manual). Alternately there may be screw type legs which are used to level your fridge.

The seal should improve once the doors are properly aligned.
