Pull the fridge out, use a level to determine how much you need to raise the back (hold level so bubble is centered, measure from bottom of level to floor.) If there is no adjustment on the back get a piece of wood the thickness of your measurement, place in the back of fridge opening, push in and tip up back to place it on wood. If there is adjustment on the back, use the measurement to adjust that much before putting it back in place. You got something cold to drink in that fridge? Have a cold one, good job! countrycurt0

    jasonand brig , if you don't have a level, there's another way to determine when the fridge is level. Put a bowl of water inside, fill it up. If the fridge is level, the water will be even all around the edge of the bowl. If it's uneven, make adjustments with shims(they are taper cut pieces of wood used by carpenters, available for a couple of bucks at any home depot, lowes, any buuilding supply store) Adjust the shims until the water in the bowl is even all the way around.

Just installed a new kitchen aide dishweasher and the door doesnt quite lay flat at 90 degrees making it difficult to load the rack

Is the DW level with the floor? What does a bubble level on laying flat across the bottom a rack say? Sloping toward the back? If so adjust leveling feet under the front. The other possibility is that you need to adjust one or both springs back a notch (Use a forked weed tool to take and replace the springs in notches to save your hands. This indicated by the door extending level if you push gently while open. I vote first option. Leveling Dishwasher

How do I level my domestic kelvinator fridge . the floor seems to be level . I recently relocated to Cairns

the front feet under the door opening are adjustable screws. You may have to use a shifter to get them to move as they mat be rusted . adjust so the fridge slopes slightly to the rear. This keeps any moisture on the back wall to drain out the hole and the door will close if left open

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.

Deck not level from right to left side

Makes and models vary considerably. However there are some things which apply to every unit. First check that your tyres are evenly inflated. If you have even slight slopes the lower side will press into the grass more and so cut deeper leaving a line. If the tyres are soft this is exaggerated. Best where possible to mow up and down slope. Next park on a flat surface like you garage floor. Carefully measure the distance from the outside of the mower deck to the floor. Measure the deck height with the unit in the cutting position. Best to do this on the rear edge of the deck where it just starts to be straight across the back. On two spinner decks, one is in front of the other so they can over lap without hitting each other. This means that the distance from the rear wheels can be different on either side. Three spinner units usually have the centre one in front. The deck swings up and down from the front attachment yoke. So the front of the deck will not rise as much as the rear. There are hangers which are lifted by the pedal which lifts the deck. If the distance to the floor is unequal, adjust the hanger threads until they hang evenly. I have not yet experienced a spring in any mower hangers.

Volvo car model94 940 sometime when car is park in slope front wheele up side fuel gauge is not indicate fuel capacity

because the fuel is not in contact with the fuel sender, being on a slope the fuel is pooled up against the back of the fuel cell, for example, half fill a glass of water then tip it back, note the level of the water in the front of the glass goes down and the rear of the glass, towards you, gets closer to the top. same basic principal, park the car on level ground and your problem should go away

I have a new 4 door Samsung Refrigerator. Is there a way to level the fridge from front to back? The fridge slopes back 1" from the bottom to the top. The delivery people said it was tilted back so...

the front supports are threaded to allow for the adjustment and levelling
while you want the appearance to be in line with everything else, the next complaint will be that it is not cooling properly or the door will not close properly
unfortunately fridges do not come with a self closing door and people are forgetful and that is why it is best to have a slight slope to compensate for forgetful people and yes it is good old cheap gravity

Leaking water from front

you need to slope it outward farther its leaning inward at a slope toward the inside,make it lean slightly toward the outside,but not too far as the water is used to cool the compressor in some units with the slinger fan,use a level to correct this or a pencil or marble,when the pencil or marble starts to roll away from the window outside your angle is correct,if it rolls toward the house it still needs adjusting

Theres water on the floor in front of the fridge and on the lefthand side

Sounds like the drain hole is blocked. Look inside at the rear of the bottom shelf you will see a small hole in the middle going downwards with two drain channels sloping down towards the hole, make sure you can push a straw or something similar sized into the hole, this will allow condensation to drain off the side walls into a catcher underneath it then evaporates when it heats back up

Tuna, it sounds like your thermistor is bad. Once the fridge reaches 40 degrees, the thermistor is supposed to tell the board to stop cooling and maintain. You can test it with an Ohmmeter.
