watched the video provided on this site. I thought I would have to buy the whole glass panel and then the video showed how the tacks pop off and how easy it was to put the new ones on. So glad to have found this site. I will check here whenever I need a part. Also, the item arrived in 2 days!

With a little help of the hammer, I gently tapped the track in place. It wasn't difficult to replace. It was a tight fit, but fit. Thanks again. I will shop this site again for parts.

Track wouldn't slide or pop in readily.

Couldn't snap the track in no matter how much pressure I exerted. Was afraid I would break the plastic. Maybe it was the wrong part. Found a suggestion in the partsselect tips area. Used a nail file to slowly sand/grind down the plastic hubs. Took my time doing each one several times. Tested installation after each round of sanding down, so as not to go too far. Eventually (5 or 10 minutes of sanding) it popped right into place. What was even more amazing to me is that I ordered the part around 2P.M. on Friday and it was delivered to NJ the next day(Saturday) before noon.

Nail set was used to push a locking bump to free the old slide. New slide had large bumps on each end which didn't allow tabs to engage mounting.slots on holder. File was used to reduce size of bumps. Original slide had a single bump in the center which fit intro a hole allowing the slide to lock in place securely.

Pan slide track tolerance too tight

  • Customer: Trent from Otsego MI
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
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)

  • Customer: Richard from Rancho Palos Verdes CA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

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.

Slid off existing tracks and slide new tracks on. One track was a little stubborn to go on, so I put on some utility gloves to get better grip. Your staff are great to work with and the repair items arrived very quickly. Sears was over $10.00 higher per track. Saved a lot of money and got great customer support. Will use your store in the future!

End of Slide Track Broke Off Other Side Cracked

Used tip of needle nose pliers to release the plastic retaining pin and was able to slide the tracks out. I was able to install one of the new tracks by hand but the other would not slide in place. I had to use some taps with a rubber hammer to start it. I never saw what it was hanging up on, but the hammer did the trick. Were it not for the snag, the install would have taken about two minutes. The bin and sliders are working perfectly.

The bracket when mfg'ed had plastic molded round (bud like pieces on both ends of new bracket. In order for the bracket to be flush and to fit, I had to saw off the round nubs off. After I did this, the bracket fit without any more problems.
