I ordered two Whirlpool pan slide tracks, which are identical for the right and left sides. The first track popped right in, just like in the installation video, but the other one got stuck during insertion. I noticed that all three plastic tabs of the track were caught on the edges of their respective metal slots, and the plastic was being shredded by the metal when I pushed harder trying to insert the track. I took a kitchen knife and shaved off small slivers of plastic from the areas of the tabs that were catching. After that, the slide could be inserted easily.

removed the plastic drawer and broken track. New track was the right size, but was difficult to get into place. Wish they wouldn't use plastic for something holding the weight of the drawer plus contents.

install took about 5-10 mins and my wife actually did it while I was away. Very easy and cheap (compared to $125 for a new shelf).

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.

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 !!

Pan slide track busted

This was a very easy repair, it took about 3 min and we were good to go. First, I removed the pan and slid the broken track out of the self-locking slots. If you're unsure as to push or pull the track out of the slot, take a peek at the slots before you start. This came right out. I got the new one, aligned the tabs with the slots, slid it in and made sure it "popped" in place. There was nothing complicated about it. One tip to get the old one out is to make sure you apply some pressure to the track as you are pulling or pushing it out of the self-locking slots. BTW I was able to get my parts in less than 48 hrs, std shipping! Awesome, and thanks!
