Whether you have a side-by-side Samsung refrigerator model, or one with a top or drawer freezer, the appliance must sit level on the floor to work properly. A refrigerator that isn’t leveled not only can have problems cooling, but also can move from its original location and is more apt to operate noisily than a level refrigerator is.
In extreme cases, the fridge could pose a tipping hazard. Leveling a refrigerator is easiest if you have someone helping you.
Set the fridge in its designated location and push on each of its front corners to determine which areas are not level. If you can push diagonally backward from the front left corner, for example, either the front left or back right corner is low.
Recruit a friend or family member to rock the refrigerator up so its front feet are exposed. Most fridges have adjustable feet that lengthen and shorten by rotating them. Turn the foot that needs to be longer or shorter in the appropriate direction then have your assistant set the fridge back down. Push on the fridge again to see if it is level or needs further adjustment.
Adjust one or more feet again, as necessary, then set the refrigerator back down and see if it is level. If it still is uneven, find some small, 2-inch wood shims.
Ask your helper to rock the fridge up again and place one or more shims under the foot on the corner of the refrigerator that needs to be raised. Set the fridge back down and check for level. Add or remove the shims as needed.
