Residential refrigerator removal for leak

I have a Redwood 38GL. I had a leak in the hose of the icemaker/water unit in the fridge. I ended up cutting and plugging the hose where it comes in outside the trailer to stop the leak. My fear is there is water under the fridge and i don't want it to wear out the floor. Does anybody know how to remove the residential fridge? It is really wedged in the spot on the slide-out. I assume i have to start taking off moldings around it and possibly the doors of the fridge. But any help would be greatly appreciated.

I might try buying a blower like they use for carpet from Home Depot. They have them for about $100. Let it blow under the fridge and dry things out for a day. Also you could tilt the Jacks toward the outside rather than level while you are doing it.

Others may have a different opinion.

I have had mine out, actually replaced. A couple pieces of plywood to bring the floor up even with the slide out helps but is not mandatory. Take the kick plate off and there are two brackets screwed to the floor. Remove them and you can pull it out by opening the doors and finding a grip on the inside to get it started. It will skew around just enough that you can reach behind it. If it has to come all of the way out then the doors do need to come off and rotate the fridge around the island by letting the countertop go inside the fridge.
