Always have another person with you before attempting to move your refrigerator or any other large appliance. Unload food from the refrigerator. Most refrigerators manufactured in the last 20 years stand on built-in rollers. Before attempting to move the refrigerator, you may need to first retract the front leveling legs. Take care not to damage the floor. If you need to move the refrigerator than one foot or so, consider using plastic floor guards to prevent any damage to the floor.
