When leveling a fridge door, you actually do not want the refrigerator to be exactly level. The whole idea of leveling a fridge door is to allow the door to close by itself when left to its own devices. The un-leveled fridge uses gravity as a tool to close your fridge door if you have forgotten to close it yourself. This action saves not only energy, because an open fridge door will always leak cold air out into the room, thereby making the compressor run constantly, but it also saves the food stored inside.
Pull out the plug that supplies power to the fridge.
Gain access to all of the fridge leveling legs that will be on the lower corners of the unit. The rear legs will be exposed once they are pulled away from the wall, but the front legs may be behind a panel that covers up the adjusting nuts. The panel must be removed before proper leveling can occur.
Place a level on the top front edge of the fridge. Adjust the two front legs and make the level bubble centered. The adjustable legs are turned by hand or an adjustable pliers if they are adjustable rollers, or use a a hex head driver or a screwdriver if they are a mechanical type of leveling leg. Leveling leg types will depend on the model fridge that you have. Turn rollers clockwise to raise the fridge and counterclockwise to lower it. If you have someone helping, by pushing on the upper fridge the rollers can be turned by hand. Otherwise, attach an adjustable pliers to the roller to turn it. This same action works on mechanical legs once a hex nut driver is attached to a leveling nut or a screwdriver is inserted into the leveling slot.
Adjust the front legs so that the the leveling bubble is centered. Turn the right rear adjustable roller or the leveling mechanism so that the bubble in the level is forward of center. Repeat this leveling adjustment on the left side of the fridge. This makes the rear about 1/4-inch lower then the front. Test by opening the door and allowing it to close. If it does not quite close all the way, lower each rear leg by another quarter of a turn.
Things You Will Need
Adjustable pliers or hex wrench, size appropriate
Most front panels are held on with gravity clips. Push up on the panel and the clip will disengage from the unit. When that occurs, pull the panel out and away from the fridge. If the panel does not push up, locate the screw holes on the side ends and remove the mounting screws to remove the panel.
