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.

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!

Pulled the shelf out and replaced the slide rails. I watched the how to video on your website and it was very accurate and easy! Took longer to empty the drawer than it did to make the repair. Easy to do!

Inherited this fridge from a sibling, but was missing a track so I couldn't use one drawer. Researched online and found the part from Partselect, and the track arrived literally the next day. Perfect fit, and now I can use the drawer. Made the wife happy.

Approached the repair as described in the video. Removal went very well. On installation the plastic tabs on the slide track were too tight to push into lock position using only hands. Had to use a screw driver and small hammer to tap the slide track into locked position. I regret that I did not replace both tracks at the same time.

I ordered the parts and recieved them in about 4 days. I was very pleased with the time between order and delivery. I watched the installation demo provided and it was as spot on. All I needed was a small hammer to tap the old slide loose and the new slide on.
