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

Obtain some solid packing material (hardwood, plastic etc) which fits firmly into the gap under the
foot.
Your Fisher & Paykel Active Smart® refrigerator is fitted with front and rear rollers, designed for moving

Avoid moving the product in a sideways direction as this may damage the rollers or the floor
Do not use metallic materials that may corrode and stain or damage floor coverings.
