You can level the left and right side but the front top should be leaning slightly back toward the wall behind so the doors will close properly. Remember to never level the refrigerator completely level as this will cause the doors to pop open when you close one the other will pop open. If you need more detailed information let me know.

Level a refrigerator


Rinda,
Most refrigerators will have a leveling leg or wheel at each ot the front corners. What I usually do is lift the refrigerator up and set a block under the refrigerator and turn the legs or the screw for the wheels until they are at the point I want them and then remove the block. In your case, if you have leveling legs you will want to screw them into the refrigerator to lower the front. If you have wheels you will need a screwdriver or a nut driver and un-screw the bolt to lower the front. You may need to take the trim under the door off to access the bolts if you have wheels in the front. Hope this helps!

Refrigoator door does not vacuum seal tight like it used to when new. Door barely stays closed on gasket.


What I hears sounds as if the refrigerator needs re-leveling. Here are some basic things to do as in this video. Every refrigerator is not always the same but the idea is to cause the doors to shut inward if you should be standing in the front and let both doors loose from your hands the doors should shut inward and firmly if not over adjusted in the final steps. Your model is a nice large model! Here is what one user manual mentioned below.

NOTE: Custom or full-overlay door panels must be installed

before leveling.

1. Open the door and place the level on top of the refrigerator

frame as shown. Check to see whether the refrigerator is level

from left to right.

2. Use the leveling bolts to adjust the leveling legs until the

refrigerator is level from left to right.

3. Place the level(s) on shelf or shelves. Check to see whether

the refrigerator is level from front to back.

4. Use the leveling bolts to adjust the leveling legs until the

refrigerator is level from front to back.

5. Be sure that all four leveling legs contact the floor and

support the full weight of the refrigerator.

6. Make final check to ensure the refrigerator is level.

Adjust Door Swing

1. Check that the refrigerator door can open freely. If the door

opens too wide or you are installing full-overlay custom

panels using a Trimless Trim Kit, you should adjust the door

swing.

2. Remove the door stop screw from the bottom hinge.

3. Hold the door open to a position that is less than 90°.

4. Replace the door stop screw in the bottom hinge and tighten.

NOTE: If you are using full-overlay custom panels with the

Trimless Trim Kit, the door stop should be replaced in either

the 90° or 110° position. See "Handle and Door Clearances

for Custom Panel Series."

Install Side Panel

If the built-in area depth is 25" (63.5 cm) or more, the side panels

can be installed inside the side trim or attached to the outside of

the side trim.

IMPORTANT: Thermador is not responsible for the removal or

addition of molding or decorative panels that would not allow

access to the refrigerator for service.

1. For the inside side trim piece, slide the front edge of the

routed side panel into the trim piece.

2. Nail the rear edge of the panel to the support board.

A. Level to check left to right leveling

B. Level to check front to back leveling

A. Rear leveling bolt

B. Front leveling bolt

A. Door Stop in 130° position

B. 110° position

C. 90° position

Water leaking somewhere inside the freezer. is there a need to defrost the freezer? water comes out fine and normal velocity when you use the water dispenser


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.

Refrigerator not cold enough


check the freezing level, there will be level of the coldness for different levels. check whether you have adjusted it to the highest level or lowest level.
if it is in lowest level then increase the level of it and just have a check, if you still persist the problem then you need to call the technician .

The Coolent which will be present in the backside of the refrigerator has got leaked, the leakage can be due to many reasons like damage in pipes where the coolent is passed to the different parts, due to the opening the refrigerator door for long of time the coolent leakage etc . are some of the reasons for it.
you need to check the amount of coolent present inside the cylinder like container which is present in the backside portion of the refrigerator.
If the amount of coolent present is less the desired amount then the cylinder must be filled with the coolent upto that amount, it will be a bit costly. it is a difficult task you need to call the technician itself ...

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.
