The rear wheels are usually fixed, the front on the other hand are adjustable. Remove the front base cover to expose the wheels and you will see adjustment screws, turn the screws with a screwdriver until it lowers to height required.

The rear wheels are fixed to the lowest possible position so the fridge can move without scratching the floor. The front wheels can be lowered approximately . She should have no problem.

67 5/8" would be the height at the rear, op has no choice but to trim the cabinet by 1/2" or get different refrig
