Need to widen refrigerator cabinet opening JUST 1/8 inch
Newbie needs help on widening a refrig cabinet opening! Our new refrigerator is 32 3/4 wide, the refrigerator cabinet opening is 32 7/8 wide. It should JUST fit. However, we found that the refrig's middle part is slightly wider than the top and bottom part. So the refrig can only go half way into the cabinet until the middle part stuck. The refrig cabinet has trim on both sides, which cannot be easily taken down. (I am not sure if it's called "trim". They are strips at the opening of the cabinet that make the opening smaller than the inside of the cabinet.)
What would you recommend for this situation? Can we sand one or both trims on the refrig cabinet to gain just probably 1/8 inch? If sanding is the right way to do it, how should we do it? What kind of tools we need?
Or do you have any other suggestions? Any input is much appreciated! Thank you in advance!!
