Right Side End Cap door hinge pin broke from the plastic

  • Customer: William from Puyallup, WA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver

Very easy as described by everyone else here. One tricky part slowed me down a bit. When you try to remove the End Cap after removing the screws you find that it is connected to the climate control bar on the rear part of the fridge cabinet. There is no screw connection, just a tab on the end of the piece, near the center of the cabinet. Just pull the End Cap away from the side, pivoting the entire unit toward the center of the fridge. This will allow the tab to slide out of the opening in the back.

Drawer lid hinge broken

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.

This was sooo easy! Removed the vegetable bins and shelf. Then removed the the deli drawer and lid. Used a 1/4 inch nut driver to remove the three nuts. On kitchen counter, I removed the two cross-cut screws from slide rail and put it on the new piece. Replaced the three nuts on the new end cap and then the hard work began---clean the shelves and bins that had been removed and replace the food. My refrigerator looks like new!

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.

Was very easy after I found right tool to get out the screws. There were only 3 popped old one out and put new one in. I waited over a year thinking this was a difficult/expensive repair. So not true...22$ and 15 min. I will definitely recommend this store/site and maintain it for my future use.
