Leveling new Kitchenaid Fridge

The fridge is hooked up but the floor is not level. I looked in the manual and I looked at the machine and I can not see a logical way to level it.

If you know where to look I would appriciate it.

Thank you!

Ian

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.

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

The fridge door will not stay closed. I changed the gasket, tightened the door screws, cleaned the contact area and it still pops open.


After all the good ideas you've already tried, the next things on your list could be:
(a) level the floor under the fridge - they often sag under the heavy weight of a loaded fridge due to moisture/rot.
(b) level the fridge itself - using the leveling legs. If the fridge continues to have a problem with
the door poping open, try raising up the front of the fridge above level.
(c) unload the door pockets - making the doors lighter may help solve the problem.

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.

Door not closing properly


Hi: The Kitchenaid refs. us a gravity close along with the magnets in the door seals. Magnets getting weak seals getting old and what you told me you checked can cause this. The easy fix is to raise the front of the fridge by lowering the front wheels. Pull the grill off the front and find the leveling screws (usually labeled.) Raise the front of the fridge until the doors swing shut with a gentle push. Before you replace the grill make sure the fridge dosn't rock side to side as you want it even. This is what they call leveling a fridge. Not cabinet level. Just sturdy. Hope I helped, Jeff

Fridge door is lower then freezer door


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.

Adjusting the hight to make it level


Try various pieces and thicknesses of plywood under the corners of the fridge to aid in leveling. I have this same issue as I have an old house and am awaiting the arrival of a new fridge. The major issue is the corner isn't square nor is the floor level. Its a doozy of wood mosaic let me tell you @@

I need help to level my kitchenaid fridge, and the owner manaul does not show this.


leveling refrigs, can be abit tricky, depending on level of floor especially, for the most part only the front 2 legs/wheels are going to be adjustable, the rears if need be will have to be chocked with wood shims . as a repairman for nearly 20years, i rarely "level" refrigs, , for the reason of who knows if the cabinets are level, or how level the floor is, i in turn make the refrig appear level and make sure its stable when the doors are opened and closed. not essential for level (shloud be close butno need to be perfect, id much rather a refrig tht looks good and doenst shake when door is closed, rathe then tryin to get it perfectly level and then seeing a 2 inch gap at top of cabint and flush against the bottom.
