How to Slide Out a Built-In Monogram Fridge

Sliding out a built-in General Electric Monogram refrigerator is not much different than moving any refrigerator. It's essential to verify all connections are disconnected before moving the appliance away from the wall. Sliding out the refrigerator requires assistance because of its weight. Protecting any flooring in front of the appliance ensures it isn't scratched or otherwise damaged.

Step 1

Shut off the main water supply or the shut-off valve connected to the icemaker.

Step 2

Loosen and remove the water tubing connected at the bottom front. Manually twist the tubing connection or use a wrench.

Step 3

Place plywood or cardboard pieces on the floor directly in front.

Step 4

Loosen and remove the screws from any brackets installed along the side. Not all refrigerator models or built-in configurations require brackets.

Step 5

Position one person on each side. Kneel to the floor. Grip the side with one hand and under the bottom with the other.

Step 6

Pull the fridge forward onto the plywood or cardboard. Stop when the power cord is reachable.

Step 7

Unplug the power cord. Slide the fridge out fully onto the cardboard or plywood.
