New F&P double door.
Last time I purchased one of these it rolled streight of its base after unpacking.
The new one I have just opened is sitting on a hard corrugated base. (rigid formed plastic)
It will not roll out over the corrugations.
Anyone know the go here ? Thanks.

Tip it one way, so you can either cut or fold over the cardboard. Then tip it the opposite way and you should be able to slide out the cardboard?

Not saying this is the link, but you could search up the model on the F&P website.....and theres an installation manual.

 

- Bascially they are saying take out the contents, secure the door again and then tip it off...

My instructions make no reference as to how to move it of the corrugated base.
As I mentioned, I purchased the same model 3 years ago and it did not have the corrugated base, it just rolled streight off the packaging. This packaging apprears to have been updated.

Ring F&P tomorrow and ask them what's recommended.

All the instructions should be illustrated on the box. Try and shimmy the base off by rocking the fridge to one side and then the other. Get someone to help you as you move the fridge.

Over-thinking it a tad perhaps?  Just lift it up one side at a time and take the base packing out.

Instructions for some fridges involve lifting fridge clear of packing with a sack barrow.

Without a barrow I'd lift one side high enough to slide a board supported at each end then lift until helper pulls tray out.

Thanks for the comments. Yes 2 people and pivot it of the tray is the way to go i think.
Just that the previous same fridge I purchased rolled out no effort at all, I did not need any help.

When I had to unpack these regularly for my day job, we used to tilt and pivot them off of the base, then kick the base out of the way with a spare foot. Most models didn't do the rollout thing you were speaking of, although it was so appreciated when they did.

Lift the box up, tip it upside down and shake it gentle until the fridge falls out.

Had to do this recently, I cut the plastic base on one side so i could slide on to the wheels on one side (took a while).

We slowly ate the packaging on the base of our new fridge.  Wasn't very tasty, but it kept the kids fed for a couple of weeks while we went and organised some clothes to put in our fridge. Something to consider prehaps?
