After years of using a flash light to check the contents of my refrigerator, I decided to try to fix the problem myself. Replacing the light switch was very easy. The directions were straight forward and I'm sorry I waited so long to tackle the problem.

This is the second order we have placed from Partselect. It arrived within two days as promised. The repair took about ten minutes and consisted of removing the deli drawer, removing the broken end cap, removing the slide rail from the end cap, cleaning out the area with a sponge, attaching the slide rail to the new end cap and installing the new end cap. The deli drawer easily slides onto the rails and the deli door easilt locks into place within the side rails. We were unable to locate the part locally and from now on, Partselect will be the first place we look for an appliance replacement part.

Like many others, the tab broke off that held the drawer in place.

  • Customer: Jerry from Odessa TX
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers, Socket set

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!
