Fisher & Paykel Refrigerator Installation Instructions


Installing your new refrigerator into your home


Correct installation of this refrigerator in your home is crucial to its performance.

Your Fisher & Paykel Active Smart™ refrigerator is fitted with front and rear rollers, designed for moving the product in the forwards and backwards direction.

Avoid moving the product in a sideways direction as this may damage the rollers or the floor covering/surface.

Ensure all packaging has been removed from the front, back and sides of the product.

1Your refrigerator will arrive with the front feet wound up making moving the product into its final location a simple task.


2Roll the refrigerator into its final position making sure there is the correct air gap between the product and surrounding cabinetry.


1⁄2” (13 mm) gap

1” (25 mm) gap Back

3⁄16” (5 mm) gap 3⁄16” (5 mm) gap

3Adjust the front feet using a hex headed screwdriver, or socket set, turn the front adjustment screws, ( a ) clockwise to raise the product and counterclockwise to lower the front of the refrigerator.

4Ensure product is sitting backward with the front approximately 3/8” (10 mm) higher than the back. This will ensure a good door-closing action.

5 Aligning your refrigerator with cabinetry:

For RF175 models align the refrigerator with cabinetry by adjusting the hinge side adjustment screw first, then the other adjustment screw until it touches the floor and takes a small amount of weight.

For RF195 models adjust the right hand side adjustment screw first, then the left hand adjustment screw to align refrigerator with cabinetry.

Once the refrigerator is in place and aligned with cupboards/alcove push gently on the front top and check if the product is rocking or stable.

If the product is rocking the floor may be uneven or the cabinetry may not be square. (See “What to do if your new refrigerator is unstable when installed”).

6If the product is stable and no door leveling is required, place toe grille onto the bottom of the product (refer to figure 6):

Align the toe grille mounting clips with the lower cabinet slots.

Push the toe grille firmly until it clicks into place.


If you need assistance with the installation of your refrigerator please call your

Fisher & Paykel Customer Care Centre. A Customer Care operator will provide expert guidance and if necessary can organise a Service Technician visit ensuring the correct installation is achieved. (A service fee will be charged).

Incorrect installation may result in the product twisting which will give the appearance of doors and handles being out of alignment.

Please ensure that your refrigerator has been correctly installed as per the above instructions, as product issues brought about by poor installation are not covered under product warranty. Refer to product warranty guidelines covered in the User Guide.

What to do if your new refrigerator is unstable when installed

AGently pull the refrigerator forward and screw down the feet until they make contact with the floor.

Gently push the refrigerator back until the rear rollers contact floor.

Measure the gap under the front foot, which has come off the floor.

Obtain some solid packing material (hardwood, plastic, etc) which fits firmly into the gap under the foot.

Note: Do not use metallic materials that may corrode, stain or damage floor coverings.


Example only

This foot lifts off the floor when top front is gently pushed back

Unlevel floor

B Wind both front feet up and roll the product out of position.

Place the packing material in the location diagonally opposite the front roller that lifts off the floor.

Make sure the packing material stays in place when the product is pushed back into position.

Ideally, the packing material is large enough to rest against the back wall so as to prevent it moving when the cabinet is pushed into position.


Wall behind refrigerator

Packing material goes here under rear roller diagonally opposite front foot that lifts off the floor

If this foot lifts off the floor when pushing gently on the top front of the refrigerator

CRoll the refrigerator back into position and adjust front rollers as per step 4. (Check alignment and door closing action are satisfactory).

Make small adjustments to front rollers where necessary.

Firmly screw front feet down to the ground

Check that the product is stable (all 4 feet are on the floor). If not return to step A and re-do steps B and C.

Place toe grille on the bottom of the refrigerator (refer to figure 6).

DLeveling of refrigerator doors (RF195A only)

If the refrigerator doors are uneven, do the following:

On the side of the refrigerator that the door is lower turn the front roller adjustment screw ( a , figure 3), on lower side, clockwise to raise front corner of door.

If one adjustment screw has reached the limit of its adjustment range and the doors are still not level, lower the opposite door by turning the roller adjustment screw counterclockwise.

Once refrigerator is aligned, screw feet firmly in place and attach toe grille (refer to step 6).
