Simply lift the fridge slightly and turn the foot piece to your left.
Some models have an adjustable roller rather than a foot, in which case there is an adjusting screw in front just above the roller.

Bosch fridge with freezer on top, when closing fridge door freezer door pops open and does not shut by its self, what adjustments can be made?


The front of the unit needs to be raised so that there is a slight slope from front to back. This can be accomplished by turning the front leveling legs counter clockwise.

Refrigerator door closing automatically


Most refrigerators have the opposite problem with little kids pulling the door open then walking away leaving the door open. You can resolve this issue by raising the refrigerator up slightly. .it's helpful to have 2 people for this task. On the front of the fridge on each corner or there of. There are a adjustable leg and by adjusting the leg in you will change the level of the fridge. The farther they are turned out the fridge will lean back and that will with the force of simple gravity make the door close on its own without any help the further in the legs are turned the fridge will lean towards the front. But with some help you can make the cabinet of the unit perfectly level then when you open the door it will stay right where you leave it

My amana bottom freeze refridgerator door in opening a little when the top door is closed. do i need to adjust the screws or is it something with the seal?


raise the front legs so the machine is tilted back a little,this will help the top door close easier,also most likely you have nothing heavy on the door itself,all a fridge does is move air,the evaporator coil gets cold and the evap. fan blows cold air from the freezer into the fridge side and the air keeps circulating,when you shut the top door it's pushing the air down into the freezer and popping the door open,like i said raise the front legs a little and put stuff on the freezer door so it has some wieght to it and it won't pop open.hope this helps salde

When I open bottom or top fridge doors they swing all the way open by themselves instead of staying put partially open


Hi,
The fridge needs to be leveled better...
When the doors swing open then gravity takes over and pulls the doors open the rest of the way...
to fix this adjust the legs of the fridge so that it leans just a bit away from the hinge side and back just a bit...then the doors will swing closed by themselves...

The back legs may have to be shimmed and the front leg adjustments are usually right behind the front cover at the floor...sometimes there are screws there to adjust the back legs from the front also...

there should be two set screws in the front of the refrigerator behind the long vent cover remove it and the screws should be in each corner. take a socket that's the right side and turn them and it should level the frige.

Water leaking from freezer


1. Check that the doors shut correctly. Hold each door about halfway open, then let go. If the doors don't shut completely, adjust the screw legs on the front of the refrigerator so the unit tilts back a bit. With adjustable pliers, turn each leg one revolution clockwise. Recheck the doors and, if necessary, repeat the process until they shut securely.
2. Step 2 Inspect the door gaskets. Look for debris that may keep the doors from shutting. Also check for cracks or gaps in the gaskets that could allow the cold air to seep out. If you find debris, clean the gaskets with warm, soapy water. If you find cracks or gaps, you'll need to replace the gaskets
3. Step 3 If your refrigerator is equipped with a door-frame heater that evaporates condensation, make sure the heater is turned on. The switch should be located with your other refrigerator controls.

The freezer part keeps popping open whenever you close the fridge part. How can I fix this?


The magnets in the freezer door arent making good contact, try adjusting the front legs up to make the fridge lean back slightly

Our GE upright freezer door keeps opening on its own! Our food is starting to melt and the manual only talks about tightening the refrigerator door. What should i do?


Your refrigerator is leaning forward to far and you need to adjust the front legs so that it is slightly leaning back. This is why the doors are opening as they work by gravity. On the bottom left and right front corners of your refrigerator you should round pads with threaded legs screwed it the bottom of your refrigerator. You need to lean the unit back and adjust these out to raise the front of your refrigerator until the doors when opened will slowly shut on its own. A level comes in handy for leveling also.

Fridge door pressurises


Make sure the refrigerator is leaning back a little. Adjust the front legs a little higher. Then just the weight of the doors will cause them to close after the air is perged. there is a magnet in the gasket. This should cause the gasket to grab the door.
