Question about Maytag (MFI2568AEW) Bottom Freezer French Door Refrigerator

2 Answers

Leveling refrigerator I just bought and took delivery of a Maytag MFI2568AEW refrigerator.It is out of level. The instruction manual says there should be 2 hex nuts on each side of the front brakes to adjust the front and rear height. My new refrigerator only has 1 hex nut next to each brake and this only adjusts the front legs. These can't adjust enough to level the refrigerator from front to back. Does the refrigerator need to be level? When I place a level on the top of the refrigerator, it shows that the back is about 1/2" below the front.

Re: leveling refrigerator

In a Home the recommended level (front higher to back lower) is 1/4" (Right to Left - level)
Never less than in order to allow door to shut own their own, but there is nothing wrong with having a perfect level refrig if everyone closes the doors properly which they won't. A refrigerator requires to be reasonable leveled to avoid compressor fatigue. In a Motorhome people can't always find level ground, so it quite frequent that their refrigerator burns up when running. From that experience I'd say I would level any fridge which is over 1/2 inch off.
