Constantly opening and closing your KitchenAid Superba refrigerator doors can cause them to become uneven. The unsightly appearance of the doors isn’t the only problem caused by sagging refrigerator doors. An ill-fitting refrigerator door creates an improper seal and causes the compressor to work harder in an attempt to maintain safe fresh-food or freezer compartment temperatures. Adjust the refrigerator doors to realign them, reduce the loss of cool air and save on your energy costs.
Grab the grill along the bottom of your KitchenAid Superba refrigerator with both hands. Depending on the age of your appliance, rotate the bottom of the grill up and away from the bottom of the refrigerator, or pull up on the grill and rotate the top of the grill away from the appliance to expose the adjustment bolts.
Look for the adjustment bolts attached to the bottom of the door hinges or at the bottom front corners directly in front of the refrigerator’s front rollers. Ensure to keep your refrigerator doors closed.
Fit an adjustable wrench around the head of the adjustment bolt. Rotate the adjustment bolt to the right to raise the door or to the left to lower it. Continue to rotate the bolts until the tops of the refrigerator doors and the gaps between the two become even.
Reattach the grill to the bottom of the refrigerator.
Slip the blade of a flathead screwdriver beneath the hinge cover at the top of your KitchenAid Superba top-mount refrigerator. Twist the screwdriver to pry the cover off the hinge.
Loosen the 5/8-inch hex-head hinge screws, using a nut driver or socket wrench. Move the door up or down until the space between the two doors is even.
Secure the door in the final position using shims. Alternatively, ask an assistant to hold the door in place. Use the nut driver or socket wrench to tighten the hex-head hinge screws. Snap the cover back over the hinge.
