  • The surface you install the refrigerator on must support a fully loaded refrigerator (Approximately 200lbs).
  • To protect the floor, put a large piece of cardboard along the path to the refrigerator's final installation location.
  • After the refrigerator is in its final position, do not move it unless necessary to protect the floor. If you have to move the refrigerator, place thick paper or cloth such as old carpets along the path of movement.

Leveling the Refrigerator

Level the refrigerator by manually adjusting the levelling legs. Turn the levelling legs clockwise to lower the position, or turn counterclockwise to raise. For safety reasons, adjust the front side a little higher than the rear side.

Leave the legs at least (A) millimeters from the floor as shown.

  • (A) 39 millimeters for RT18*
  • (A) 43 millimeters for RT21*
