Trying to remove fridge from boler

I am trying to remove an original fridge from boler. However they used bolts with a rounded head on top so there is nothing on top to grab onto. When I turn the nut on the bottom the top just turns and there is nothing to grab on to. How do I get these bolts out so I can remove the fridge? Does anyone have any experience with this?

If you can't get a visegrip plier on it, you could try tightening the nuts from underneath until the bolt breaks. (last resort)

Or, if you have a dremmel tool, you could try cutting a slot in the bolt head so you can use a flat blade screwdriver.

Or, if you have a grinder, you could grind off the bolt heads, or if access is easier from below, grind/cut off the nuts.

Good luck!

You can also use center punch and drill them flush.
