The tab that holds the cover to the crisper drawer breaks

This id the 3rd time the tab on the end cap has broken, it is a weak and poorly designed part. So I modified it. Took drawer out, took glass shelves out, removed end caps from both sides. Put a 1 5/8 inch drywall screw into the back of the tab that holds the drawer cover. Screwed it in so that the head of the screw was just a short distance from the refrigerator side, then re-installed the end cap. Hopefully this screw will keep the tab from bending back too far and breaking again.

Simply remove the two fruit/vegie drawer and the glass pantry top. Lift off the front support for the glass. Using a nut driver, remove the 2 screws that hold the pantry cap onto the side of the fridge then remove the end cap and temperature control. Remove the two screws that hold the drawer slide to the end cap and transfer to the new end cap. Now transfer the temperature control slides from the old end cap to the new. Some twisting and bending of the plastic slides will be necessary so be carefull not to push too far and break them. Reverse the removal until everything's back together.

The plastic tab that holds the deli drawer cover broke off

Removed crisper drawers, removed glass shelf and deli drawer and cover. Remove screws holding the sliding attachment and pantry end. After taking the old pantry end off I noticed that there was a plastic insert that went from the front to the rear, made a 90 degree turn and went to the rear area of the unit and was used to control the temp in the deli drawer. Took a little while to figure out how it worked and finally put it all together and reversed all of the steps taken to replace everything. Once I figured out the temp control slide it was easy to get it back together.

Pins holding the door in place are part of the plastic end cap on either side of pantry drawer. Very easy to replace. Need only to remove two bolts holding the broken end cap in place, remove the drawer slide from that piece by removing two more bolts, reinstalling the drawer slide on the replacement end cap, and reinstalling the new end cap. Part was surprisingly cheap and arrived much sooner than indicated.

It was very simple taking every thing out and putting new part in. I figure if I had to call a repair person it would have ended up costing us probably around $300.00. We only paid $21.00. We thank you.
