Bottom Freezer Refrigerator - How to Align French Doors

Door alignment or adjustment can be done on all French-Door, Bottom-Freezer Refrigerators that are labeled "Assembled in the USA" on the rating plate. If the doors are uneven on a French-Door, Bottom-Freezer model, use the bottom fresh food door hinges to align them following the instructions provided below.

Aligning the Doors on Bottom-Freezer, French-Door Style Refrigerators

  1. Locate the adjusting screws found on the underside of the fresh food doors of the Refrigerator. You can refer to the Owner's Manual/Installation Instructions for the exact location.
  2. Using a 1/4” or 4 mm wrench, turn the door adjusting screw to the right to raise the door or to the left to lower it. A nylon plug, embedded in the threads of the pin, prevents the pin from turning unless a wrench is used.
  3. After one or two turns of the wrench, open and close the Refrigerator door and check the alignment at the top of the doors.
  4. If necessary, repeat the above steps until the doors are aligned.
