The large pull out full width drawer cover hinge pin broke off on the left side. The repair is easy with just two tools, a 1/4" nut driver and a phillips head screw driver. I removed the two conventional drawers that sit above the wide drawer with the broken hinge. Next lift out the glass divider that sits on top of the wide drawer and set it aside and remove the two braces front and back by lifting them out of their respective grooves. Remove the wide drawer with the lid by pushing in on the two black clips on each side of the drawer slide up towards the front and pull entire drawer out while putting pressure on the two clips at the same time. The drawer should come out leaving the drawer slides behind. Unscrew the 1/4" hex screws on the broken side panel using the nut driver and gently pull the side panel straight back toward you. Remove the drawer slide from the broken piece by unscrewing the two phillips head screws and rescrew the drawer slide onto the new side panel. Replace everything in reverse order. One note: do not use too much torque on the screws when replacing the parts as they only screw into plastic, this will avoid them stripping out. A snug fit is all you're after. There now, go pop a beer and sit down and relax, you are now a refrigerator repair man!
