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.

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.

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.

Removed pantry slide out drawer, removed both upper drawers, removed glass shelf (below 2 drawers). Removed the front glass shelf support. It just sits in a grove, comes right off.Used a ratcheting screw driver,with no tip, to remove the screws holding the end cap. Disconnected the air flow adjusting lever from end cap.Cleaned the whole area with a sponge and soap and water.lol.( amazing how dirty it can get being out of sight). reinstalled the lever on the new end cap, screwed it in place, put everything back together, DONE!It took about 20 min, including cleaning.Oh yeah, had an "inservice" with my grandaughter on how to close the 'fridge door.

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.

The back assembly for temperature control of the bins will come out too. Remove temperature control rod and back assembly from end cap for reuse on new end cap. Remove two philips screws from drawer slider and detach from end cap. Reverse process for re-installation.

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.
