Before leveling, unplug the appliance to avoid an electrical shock hazard. Never tip a refrigerator or freezer, it is very heavy and can fall causing damage or injury. 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 icemaker 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 retightening the screws.
Thanks, Sea Breeze

I have a Whirlpool side -by- side 25 cu.ft. want to know about what age it is?


Hi.

It depends on the model number. Whirlpool started building 25 cu.ft over ten years ago and the model is still being produced. Please find the serial and number printed on the refrigerator service tag and give us the complete model number along with serial number. The model number will tell us the initial date of production, the serial number tells us the date of production of the specific unit. Here whirlpool date codes explained. To find the service tag check in locations illustrated below.

How to level a Whirlpool Conquest refrigerator 2009 after moving it from a different house? The left front now wobbles.


To level your refrigerator:

Remove toe grill. Use flat-blade screwdriver or 3/8" socket wrench to adjust the front rollers. Or Turn the leveling leg clockwise to raise the side of the refrigerator or counterclockwise to lower it. Which ever applies to your unit.

Note: Having someone push backward against the top of the refrigerator takes some weight off the leveling legs. This makes it easier to adjust the legs.

Doors are hard to open on my new Whirlpool Conquest sided-by-side


2 things come to mind:

1) Check to see if the unit is level
or
2) if it is simply a suction issue when opening, try wiping the big gasket and the contact surface with some furniture polish

My whirlpool gold side by side serial # slo539783 model #gd


Sound like you have a refrigerant leak I suggest to take it to a pro because you need lots of tools and knowledge to properly fix it And don?t let people tell you than is just to add refrigerant because that is a common myth or miss conception, refrigerant don?t ware out or burn out if the system need refrigerant is because there is a leak some where.
