Problem with our new refrigator

We found that it has 2 wheel and 2 leveling screws, but we don't have any idea how can we lock the wheels. We have stone an kitchen's floor and the refrigator could move without real lock. Is it possible to lock the wheels?

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 do you lock the wheels on a maytag refrigerator


Hello Joyce;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service technician.

You did not give me a model number so I am not sure what you have.
Remove the front bottom grill. Some grills have clips 1 on each end that you just pull to remove. Others have a screw on each end to remove.
1.) Some units have a locking bar on the outside of the front wheels. Turn this bar to lock.
2.) Some units have bars on each side with square heads. There are 2 bars on each side. One for the front wheel and one for the back wheel. You need a box wrench or ratchet. Clockwise raises the wheels and counter clockwise lowers the wheels.
3.) All units have leveling screws in the front. Turn the jack screws clockwise to bring them down. If you did not receive a special wrench with the unit, you will need either a pair of channel locks or another tool when the jack screws touch the floor. Turn the jack bolts 1/2 to 1 full turn. This will secure the refrigerator in your desired position.
I do not recommend 3.) unless your floor is pitched and your refrigerator tends to move. The leveling jack may leave impressions in you kitchen floor. Generally, just the heavy physical weight of your unit keeps the refrigerator in place.

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!

I need to level the refrigerator. The back needs


Hello Monty, If you can roll the fridge out, you'll likely see the adjustment screws for the rear wheels, (if equipped). If the rear wheels are fixed, as most are, you can put a couple of wooden shims down on the floor where the wheels will be and roll the fridge back into place and then make the leveling adjustments from the front wheels.

If the amount of height adjustment is greater than a half an inch, you can use a solid piece of plywood the width of the fridge and about 4-6" wide and place that at the back. Roll the fridge in until it hits the plywood and tilt the fridge forward about 2 inches and push it back until the rear wheels are on the plywood. You can then, again, level the fridge using the front wheel/leg levelers.

I've found that it's easier to get a good idea of just how much out of level the space is where the fridge is being placed. Then you can make the changes using the best materials for the situation. Shims are fine for small adjustments, while the full width plywood is more consistent and easier to adjust, as the fridge will likley get moved out every 6 months or so, for cleaning of the coils and behind the fridge.

Remember that ideally, you want the front of the fridge just slightly higher than the back, so the doors will close by themselves, when opened almost 90 degrees and released by hand. Gravity should then take over and automatically close the doors, ensuring a good seal to keep the fridge closed and running properly.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

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.

How to move the fridge


The wheels are probably OK, the tech likely lowered the leveling feet in the front to keep it from rolling by accident. Turn the little level legs (the screw up into the fridge) until the weight is back on the roller wheels, then you should be able to move it. A pair of "channel lock" pliers on the rubber feet work the best depending on how much weight is on them.
