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.

    the front of the fridge (maytag also...) is WAY higher than the back of the fridge. Basically exactly what the previous poster wrote is my situation. The instructions for leveling the fridge seem to be incomplete or incorrect, because when I try to adjust the hex bolts, thinking I'm raising or lowering the front wheels, all it does is loosen or tighten the bolt. I turned the bolt SEVERAL times. I didn't want it to break off the wheel entirely or something so I stopped. Wish I could find help. I can see if the fridge is a little out of level, that's ok, but the front is almost an inch higher than the back. That's a LOT out of level.

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.

I purposely adjust the front of the fridge slightly higher (not level) so door closes completely when lightly pushed.

If it doesn't stay open when at a right angle, then the hinge side is too high relative to handle side. If it SLAMS shut, then adjust front left/right lower.
