Removed the 2 bins, glass shelf, large drawer. Removed the 2 screws holding the right drawer slide. Removed the 2 screws holding the pantry end cap in place. Transfered all the parts from the old end cap to the new end cap and reinstalled the end cap. Replaced the slide, glass shelf and the drawers. Installed the large drawer cover (very carefully!) as this is what broke off last time. Total time start to finish about 30 minutes.

Right side of chefs pantry door broke

Pretty easy to do except need to pay close attention to how the old part came off because the back was a little tricky. The part that hooks to the chefs pantry door and controls the temperature adjustment slide pay particular attention to. The whole job from start to finish about 30 minutes, definately would not hire someone to do, would do myself again.

Pin was broken

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.

The right hand pin that holds the liftable clear door over the lowest drawer broke. It is a molded piece, so the whole right end cap had to be replaced. The large lower drawer, the two smaller drawers above it and the glass divider/shelf all had to be taken out. The end cap was removed using a 1/4" allen wrench hand driver, and the whole assembly had to be angle out at abour 45 degrees to release a connect temperature control slide from a slot in the back of the refrigerator (I was not expecting that, but it was not hard to free it). Several pieces had to be removed from the orginal end cap and placed in the same position on the new unit. I did this without looking at any instructions (of course), and it took a few minutes to figure out how to get it apart. Previewing instructions would not be a bad idea for those who don't want to figure out the puzzle. Reassembly was easy, and I then just reversed the process to put the fully assembled unit in its' place, put the drawers and shelf in and reattach the liftable door to the pin.

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.

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.

Deli Drawer Cover Broke Off

The annoying cover to the deli drawer broke off again. This is my second time purchasing this part from this website (left side and now, right side). Both purchases were very easy. Replacing the left side is easier because there isn't a temperature adjuster to remove and reinstall. I found this website very easy to find my parts both times, and I installed the right side (the latest fix) in less than 15 mintues while taking care of two kids. Many women do repairs around the house and are successful! :)

Broken hinge pin for deli drawer- right side

The repair is staightforward. Simply remove the deli drawer (up and out), the glass lid, and the vegatable drawers above it (easier access- they just slide out). Using a 1/4 socket I removed the 3 screws holding the end cap in place. You then disconnect the 2-3 places where the end cap connects to the humidity adjustment (front and rear). When the end cap is out you have to remove the drawer slide as and humidity adjustment slide as it isn't included in the replacement part- just 3 more screws- same size). Attach the drawer slide to the new end cap and do everything in reverse to replace it. Took all of 20 minutes including cleaning/drying the drawers etc while I had them out. Easy project.

After one attempt to use super glue failed, obtained the part (shelf support). Had to remove drawers and a shelf to get to the support. Two hex screws held in place. No problems, a little touchy to put the lid back on, but all in all a simple repair. Didn't have instructions - didn't need them - it was straight forward.

Broken pin that holds the pantry flip door

Removed large lower drawer, removed contents from the lower shelf, removed the two produce drawers, removed glass shelf. At that point you will be able to remove the three screws from the left side pantry end cap. A slight upward and forward motion will release the side pantry end cap once the screws are removed. Once the side pantry end cap is removed, two screws will removed the drawer track. Note: you will have to slide the drawer track one way or the other to align a small hole to find and remove the hidden screws. The process was reversed to install the drawer track and side pantry end cap, etc. The actual removal and installation of the new side pantry end cap took less than 10 minutes. I was very pleased with the ease of ordering and speedy delivery of the part from PartSelect.com
