My son in law was able to take off the defective end pieces, and replace them with the new ones, in about 20 minutes. 10 minutes were probably spent in finding the right tools.Very easy to do. Parts were received within 2 days of ordering (I placed order on a Sunday).I was able to find the parts right away on your inter net lay out.

Removed Left side support with broken pin (3 small hex head bolts). Replaced with new support with pin in place. Note behind: I broke the pin trying to replace the cover. Now I know to flex back the side to the cover, and not flex the pin which broke. This cost me 25 bucks and one hour, saving me from a probable $300 dollar charge. THANKS, PARTS SELECT!!!!!

The large pull out full width drawer cover hinge pin broke off on the left side. The repair is easy with just two tools, a 1/4" nut driver and a phillips head screw driver. I removed the two conventional drawers that sit above the wide drawer with the broken hinge. Next lift out the glass divider that sits on top of the wide drawer and set it aside and remove the two braces front and back by lifting them out of their respective grooves. Remove the wide drawer with the lid by pushing in on the two black clips on each side of the drawer slide up towards the front and pull entire drawer out while putting pressure on the two clips at the same time. The drawer should come out leaving the drawer slides behind. Unscrew the 1/4" hex screws on the broken side panel using the nut driver and gently pull the side panel straight back toward you. Remove the drawer slide from the broken piece by unscrewing the two phillips head screws and rescrew the drawer slide onto the new side panel. Replace everything in reverse order. One note: do not use too much torque on the screws when replacing the parts as they only screw into plastic, this will avoid them stripping out. A snug fit is all you're after. There now, go pop a beer and sit down and relax, you are now a refrigerator repair man!

Lift drawer off sliders. Remove two screws holding drawer slider. Remove two screws holding left side pantry end cap. Screw new end cap into place. Screw draw slide into place. Replace drawer. It was a quick repair and finding the replacement part was real easy since the right side end cap needed replacing last year for the same problem. Weak design, but that's another story.

Remove two hanging drawers (fruit and vegetable). Remove top glass and two supports for the chef's pantry. Removed chef's pantry. Remove three large screws from the pantry end cap (front, middle and rear). The end cap can now be removed. NOTE: The pantry drawer slide will still be attached to the end cap. Once the end cap is removed detach the rail by removing two smaller screws. TIP: Use either a nut driver or socket verses a screw driver it works out better. At this point replace the end cap and install in reverse of removal.

biggest time was the cleaning of the area ;-) for the actual work it was less than 10 mins to replace. remove the three screws and there are two tabs on the back of the replacement part that you need to line up with the slots in the back and it simply snaps in place - put the screws back and you're done

Ordered new part received it quick. Removed two nuts to remove old pantry side. remove drawer slide from old part and replace on new part. Re-attach pantry end cap. replace glass and brackets reinstall drawer? Done! really simple. Instructions on web site and with new part.

The pnatry end cap broke within the first year of owning the refrigerator...because of that the lower veggie bin door has not connected to the side for the past 2-3 years! A visiting friend said the same thing had happened to their refrig and that she ordered a part on line and repaired it herself.

The repair was very straight-forward with using a socket set to remove the side panel and replace it. This also gave be a chance to give the refrig a good cleaning:) I was a bit worried about "popping" the cover in place, but it went in smoothly. I have decided that one of the causes of the breakage was lifting the cover manually and not allowing it to open automatically as the veggie drawer was opened. Hopefully, this will prevent future issues. I'm SO glad I found your site and will definitely use it again and refer friends!
