What to do if your new refrigerator is unstable when installed
Instructions on what to do if your refrigerator is unstable.
- Gently push the refrigerator back until the rear rollers contact floor.
- Measure the gap under the front foot, which has come off the floor.
- Obtain some solid packing material (hardwood, plastic etc) which fits firmly into the gap under the foot.
Note: Do not use metallic materials that may corrode and stain or damage floor coverings.
- Wind both front feet up and roll the product out of position.
- Place the packing material in the location diagonally opposite the front roller that lifts off the floor.
- Make sure the packing material stays in place when the product is pushed back into position.
- Ideally, the packing material is large enough to rest against the back wall so as to prevent it moving when the cabinet is pushed into position.
- Roll the refrigerator back into position and adjust front feet as per step 4. (Check alignment and door closing action are satisfactory).
- Make small adjustments to front feet where necessary.
- Check that the product is stable (all 4 feet are on the floor). If not return to step A and re-do steps B and C.
- Levelling of refrigerator door (RF610A, RF540A, RF522A, RF201A only)
- For uneven surfaces, front feet can be used to align the 2 doors.
- If left hand door is too low, then unscrew the left hand foot to lift up cabinet until top edges of the two doors are aligned.
- If right hand door is lower, then process the same way with right hand foot.
