How to adjust the level of your Samsung refrigerator?

Last Update date : Jul 22. 2022

A properly leveled refrigerator will have the front resting on the leveling legs and with the front wheels not in contact with the floor. This will prevent potential leak issues, cooling issues, noise issues, and damage to the Refrigerator. To save energy and prevent potential cooling issues, noises, or leaks, your refrigerator needs to be level. This guide will show you how to level your fridge and make minor leveling adjustments.



The refrigerator must be levelled on a flat, solid floor. Failing to do so can cause damage to the refrigerator or physical injury.

Levelling must be performed with an empty refrigerator. Make sure no food items remain inside the refrigerator

Locate the leveling legs

The leveling legs are located underneath the refrigerator at the front.

  • For easier access to the leveling legs on Side by Side and Four Door models, open both the doors.
  • If the refrigerator has a front leg cover, it needs to be removed for easier access to the leveling legs. This will vary between models, as some covers do not have to be removed to access the legs. 


To remove the front leg cover, remove the screws with a screwdriver, and then lift it up from the bottom and pull it out. Don't forget to re-install the front leg cover

Adjust the leveling feet

If the left side of the refrigerator is lowert than the right side, insert a flat-head screwdriver into the notch on the left foot and turn it counter-clockwise to adjust the refrigerator level.

If the right side of the refrigerator is lower than the left side, please adjust the right foot.  


Turn the foot clockwise to lower the refrigerator and counter-clockwise to raise it.
