the ends the hold the drawers in place were broke

It was simple. Took longer to empty the fridge than to do the repair itself. For the center rail no tools required. For the pantry end only needed a 1/4" nutdriver. 2 hold on the rail which has to be removed. Then 3 on the pantry itself. Came right off just have to be careful not to disrupt the temperature control that runs through it for the pantry. It is rather flimsy and thin plastic that could break easily. Assembled the temp control back onto it and reassembled. Literally 15 minute repair for both.

Ordered new center rail which arrived next day (!) my husband took the shelf out, inserted new rail into slots, replaced shelf, put the bins back and it works perfectly again. No problem at all, took less that 15 min. including removing food items from shelf and putting shelf back into the refrigerator.

Center Rail End Tap Snapped Off, And Crisper Drawer Broke Hinge Tab

Removed both veggie crisper and lower center crisper, removed glass shelves, removed broken side pantry end cap two screw, two were missing. Hardest part was to remove the rear adjustable piece and install on new end cap. Glad I took my time as the center rail will probably have to be replaced again. Poor design, numerous other comments say the same thing. Best part of the repair was ordering from partselect. Co, shipped on time and ordering was easy with complete parts diagrams.

Broke parts due to grandchildren not being careful with middle drawer

to repair the center rail, all I did was remove the food and the top glass and insert the rail!!! to repair the end cap all I did was remove the big drawer and remove the broken end cap and replace with the new one. My only thought is this is the third end cap I have had to replace not very sturdy construction where the lid hangs

I took out the two shelves that were in the way. Lifted the glass out and set it aside. Since the pantry drawer cover wasn't in, because the tab was broke, I lifted the support beam out, pulled out the drawer and lifted it out. (The pantry drawer just lifts right out, straight up then towards you) I took out the back support beam, it lifts straight up. After that, I used a screw driver to take the pantry drawer glider (part #12) off of the broken one, then I put it on the new one so I wouldn't forget its orientation to the new part. I used a my socket set to take out two (should be three, but mine had two) bolts. I then gently pulled off the part needing replaced, first pulling it to the left, bringing the SLIDE- TEM (part #11) the BAR- TEMP (part #15) with it. Part #11 is held in by a tab at the back, to the left, so when you have the whole thing at the correct angle, it just slides out. (Pulling to the right, when you have the whole piece angled towards the center of the fridge, to the left.) After you get that piece out, you'll be able to clean the bottom of the fridge, it's amazing how much crap builds up on the bottom! (I even found a dead fly, eww! LOL) Taking parts #11 & #15 off of your old piece is easy, two tabs that you bend in on the right side of part #11 loosens it from your old part, then twisting it to take the pieces apart then lifting a few tabs to get #15 off of the old part. Then twisting it again to get the KNOB-TEMP (part #14) off. Pay attention to how you take this apart! It goes back together just like it came off! Attach these pieces to your new piece then it slides right in like you took it out. Slide the back left of #11 into the tab, reinsert the bolts, put your support bars back in, put your drawer in, put the drawer cover back into the new tab you just installed, put your glass in and finally, your shelves. All done!

After receiving the new ice maker assembly I placed the new part next to the old one to see what I needed to transfer from the old to the new. After removing the wiring harness and a few small parts, I placed them on the new assembly. After that it was a snap which timewise took about 15 minutes. I am pleased to say the ice hopper is full and being replenished very efficiently.

1. Prepare the new ice maker by installing the bail cut off from old unit and installing the wiring harness from old ice maker. 2. Turn off the freezer unit only and turn off water supply. 3. Unplugged the electrical connector from the ice maker to the plug in back of freezer compartment. Remove the three (3) screws holding ice maker in place. Placed the cap from old unit to new ice maker. 4. Plug the electrical connector to the plug in back of freezer. Attached new unit with the three screws. Place bail in on position and turn the freezer and water on, ice made in circa 3 hours (without leaking I might add :)
