Broken hinge pin for deli drawer- right side

The repair is staightforward. Simply remove the deli drawer (up and out), the glass lid, and the vegatable drawers above it (easier access- they just slide out). Using a 1/4 socket I removed the 3 screws holding the end cap in place. You then disconnect the 2-3 places where the end cap connects to the humidity adjustment (front and rear). When the end cap is out you have to remove the drawer slide as and humidity adjustment slide as it isn't included in the replacement part- just 3 more screws- same size). Attach the drawer slide to the new end cap and do everything in reverse to replace it. Took all of 20 minutes including cleaning/drying the drawers etc while I had them out. Easy project.

Deli Drawer Cover Broke Off

The annoying cover to the deli drawer broke off again. This is my second time purchasing this part from this website (left side and now, right side). Both purchases were very easy. Replacing the left side is easier because there isn't a temperature adjuster to remove and reinstall. I found this website very easy to find my parts both times, and I installed the right side (the latest fix) in less than 15 mintues while taking care of two kids. Many women do repairs around the house and are successful! :)

Broken pin

The right hand pin that holds the liftable clear door over the lowest drawer broke. It is a molded piece, so the whole right end cap had to be replaced. The large lower drawer, the two smaller drawers above it and the glass divider/shelf all had to be taken out. The end cap was removed using a 1/4" allen wrench hand driver, and the whole assembly had to be angle out at abour 45 degrees to release a connect temperature control slide from a slot in the back of the refrigerator (I was not expecting that, but it was not hard to free it). Several pieces had to be removed from the orginal end cap and placed in the same position on the new unit. I did this without looking at any instructions (of course), and it took a few minutes to figure out how to get it apart. Previewing instructions would not be a bad idea for those who don't want to figure out the puzzle. Reassembly was easy, and I then just reversed the process to put the fully assembled unit in its' place, put the drawers and shelf in and reattach the liftable door to the pin.

I lost the instructions so took one piece at a time off and put it on the new part. Then mounted it in the refrigrator. Works better than when it was new. Thanks for very quick shipping.

Right Side End Cap door hinge pin broke from the plastic

Very easy as described by everyone else here. One tricky part slowed me down a bit. When you try to remove the End Cap after removing the screws you find that it is connected to the climate control bar on the rear part of the fridge cabinet. There is no screw connection, just a tab on the end of the piece, near the center of the cabinet. Just pull the End Cap away from the side, pivoting the entire unit toward the center of the fridge. This will allow the tab to slide out of the opening in the back.

Removing the large drawer,2 drawers,glass shelve & 2 end supports,two screws on the sliding track & two screws on the Pantry end cap it took me 15 minutes. When removing the left Pantry end cap on the right side, care must be taken because Center Crisper Rail #PS 162879 is attached to the Pantry End cap at the back & real care must be taken to remove it. After all the screws are removed pull the end cap carefuly towards you while moving all to the left until it clears the back wall of the refrigerator. Again, real care must be taken using a flat head screwdriver to remove the plastic track for the Center Crisper Rail. The Pantry End Cap on the left is a lot easier to remove than the right side.

I did not do the repair my husband did but it only took him 20 minutes and it was done. I am especially thrilled with the fact that the part came the very next day without paying for extra postage. Thank you for your quick response. In fact I ordered a filter for the same fridge the same day from a different parts place and it still has not arrived and its been more than 10 days. Guess who gets my business in the future for appliance repairs.

Parts arrived in less than 2 days. Installation was easy. The only tricky part was removing the Temperature/Humidity control from the old part. A little "bending" of the plastic is necessary to remove the slide mechanism. After that, it was quite easy.
