Adjusting a Maytag refrigerator shelf involves placing the shelf in a different position. Certain models have adjustable shelves such as cantilever shelves and elevator shelves. Some models have full width shelves that are not adjustable.
To adjust a cantilever shelf that rests on hooks, tilt up the front frame of the shelf and lift it. Re-insert the hooks in the desired position and let the shelf settle into place. Ensure it is locked at the rear. If the shelf rests on a rail, pull out the shelf and slide it back in through the desired rail position.
To adjust an elevator shelf upward, remove the knob on the crank handle and rotate the clank clockwise. To lower the shelf position, rotate the clank anticlockwise.
