Removing the Grille on a GE Profile Refrigerator

General Electric (GE) Profile refrigerators have a grille on the bottom of the front of the refrigerator. The grille allows air to be pulled from the kitchen into the lower compartment of the appliance by the condenser fan, which cools the refrigerator's compressor. At times this grille must be removed, such as when you are cleaning the compressor, emptying and cleaning the drain pan or adjusting the refrigerator's leveling legs to level the appliance. The grille is designed for easy removal: It is secured in place using only two screws.

Step 1

Open the refrigerator doors to at least 90 degrees.

Step 2

Remove the two Phillips screws securing the grille to the cabinet. They are at the top portion of the front of the grille.

Step 3

Pull the grille away from the front of the cabinet to remove it.
