Pan slide track tolerance too tight

  • Customer: Trent from Otsego, MI
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

The slide track is designed to slide directly into the slotted metal rails in a no tools required application. However, the tabs in the plastic slide track were slightly bowed inward which decreased the tolerance required to slide freely. After several attempts the plastic then became slightly gouged by the metal rail further preventing the slide track from sliding all the way into place and into the detent. I ended up using a small file to file down the plastic slide track just a bit to remove the gouged plastic and create the required tolerance to allow the slide track to slide into its intended position.

I got the part in 1 day. I ordered at 1pm and got it at 11am the next morning. I used the wooden handle from a screwdriver and a hammer to tap the slides loose. The new ones went on easily. It took me longer to get everything off the support shelf and back in afterwards then it did to do the job. Actually doing the job took 5 minutes.

plastic pan slide tracks broken (both sides)

These are the left & right slide rail tracks for the pull-out meat tray located just under one of the interior shelves. When removing or installing plastic parts you should always use a delicate touch, because plastic is brittle and can crack or break. To install these rails, I used a small screwdriver and a small rubber mallet to lightly tap the old ones off. The new ones I put the tabs in the holes and using the mallet & screwdriver, I lightly tapped into place until I heard a click-lock. So...... use a delicate but forceful approach. Good luck !!

I first watched the instructional video and from then on it was a simple repair. The Pan Slide Track had been broken, probably from excess weight in the drawer over the past 8 years. After removing the drawer and glass support per the video, I discovered that BOTH the tracks were broken! Fortunately, I had ordered two(2) tracks and was able to replace both in less than 30 minutes. In my experience of do-it-yourself repairs, this was by far the simplest repair do mainly because of the great step by step video.

I started by viewing the video online showing how to make the repair. I then unplugged the fridge, taped the cover of the icemaker up out of the way. It was then a matter of removing three screws on both the emitter and receiver sides of the freezer and two screws each to remove the boards. I uplugged the modular plugs from each board and then reversed the proceedure. Icemaker is now working like new.

Opened freezer section of refergerator and taped Ice Maker cover door in the open position to remove emitter and receiver boards. Unscrewed the phillips head screws that secure the emitter board housing to the refrigerator side wall. Turned off power to the refrigerator and unpluged the emitter, removed the 2 screws that hold the emitter board against the housing and removed it, then I installed the new emitter board in the housing by screwing it in place. Repeated same process for removal and replacement of the receiver board. The whole process took me about 10 minuets.

No prior experience in appliance repair. The majority of time was used in researching the problem and how to fix it. The Parts-Select website and the comments of prior customers made it easy to diagnose and repair. Unplugged the unit, popped of the ice maker cover to get it out of the way, unscrewed the plate covers for the emitter and receiver, changed them out, replaced the covers, replaced ice maker cover, plugged in. Moved on to the next problem.

The ice maker wasnt making ice even after i changed the module or motor last year.

After i changed the emitter and the receiver this year every thing is working again
