The plastic tab that holds the deli drawer cover broke off

Removed crisper drawers, removed glass shelf and deli drawer and cover. Remove screws holding the sliding attachment and pantry end. After taking the old pantry end off I noticed that there was a plastic insert that went from the front to the rear, made a 90 degree turn and went to the rear area of the unit and was used to control the temp in the deli drawer. Took a little while to figure out how it worked and finally put it all together and reversed all of the steps taken to replace everything. Once I figured out the temp control slide it was easy to get it back together.

One of the pins that is part of the end cap and is used to open and close the pantry door broke. Seems like a lot of folks have had this problem - too light so maybe Amanda need to beef up this part where the pin connection to the end cap.

The reports of others I read on how to remove and replace the end cap was spot on so I just followed how they did it. Took about 30 mins.

The tab that holds the cover to the crisper drawer breaks

This id the 3rd time the tab on the end cap has broken, it is a weak and poorly designed part. So I modified it. Took drawer out, took glass shelves out, removed end caps from both sides. Put a 1 5/8 inch drywall screw into the back of the tab that holds the drawer cover. Screwed it in so that the head of the screw was just a short distance from the refrigerator side, then re-installed the end cap. Hopefully this screw will keep the tab from bending back too far and breaking again.

The bracket that held the crisper lid on right side had broken.

Read as many of the comments on this website as I could. Practiced before the part actually came. Everything fit just according to plan. Hope "I don't know" doesn't return anytime soon.

Removed all three drawers and the glass shelves. Unscrewed the pantry end cap and disconnected the humidity control parts (no tools needed for this part) and installed them on the new part. Screwed the new end cap to the refrigerator and installed the glass shelf, the drawers and the lift up cover for the bottom drawer. This is a first for me to respond to a request for information on installation. I do so because I found the entire process easy, convenient, accurate and the part was delivered as promised. Thanks for a new "favorite".

It was very easy. Remove the lid and drawer. Remove the pantry end cap screws then remove the assembly. You will need to remove the long arm that controls the temp, take note as how it fits in the clips. Next, carefully twist the temp control, again taking note on how it came out. Assemble the same way in reverse, start with the control, then the arm, then screw it back into place.

I followed the instructions that I got from this site. Removed the drawers and glass shelf which opens up a lot of room to work. I would have been through a lot sooner but it took me a few minutes to figure out that the bar on the rear wall of the refrigerator is the is the key to removing the control slide on the fornt of the panel. Once you remove that bar and remove it from the slide on the side of the panel you can then remove everything. Once I figured that out it was a snap.

Replaced the part, I'm a former appliance service business owner but if you have a small bit of mechanical ability you can change this yourself. Be Careful though internl workings seem flimsy and you might break another part that might ruin your day.
