What is the rubber...

What is the rubber or plastic thing on the bottom of the refrigerator. We have a new fridge with something almost hanging on the floor. Is there a problem with it?

Contractor's Assistant: What's the make and model of the fridge? And can you guesstimate how old is it?

It's brand new from Pacific Sales. Just being installed. Waiting to hook up the water line. Model number is ***** Side by side French doors with freezer on the bottom. Cabinet depth.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

No.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Do we need to worry about whatever is on the bottom of the refrigerator?

Also the website will send you a phone call offer that is not from me!

That is a divider that directs air flow , It needs to be there , and the closer to the floor the better .

It normally is approx 1/4 inch off the floor.

But if it was moved with a hand truck it could have gotten hit .
