Thanks for all of the advice, the fridge seems to be defrosting correctly now. NO MORE LEAKS!! I was able to loosen up one leg, but the other wont budge. The plastic casing surrounding the bolt is all torn up from trying to get it to budge with water pump pliers. The plastic casing moves but the bolt stays in place.  Any advice, is it possible that the bolt is rusted and needs to be sprayed with WD-40? What would you try and do?
