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!

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!

It was very simple taking every thing out and putting new part in. I figure if I had to call a repair person it would have ended up costing us probably around $300.00. We only paid $21.00. We thank you.

Problem: hinge is too fragile for the constant use it receives. However, repair is simple and, thanks to excellent prices at PartSelect, it is not a big deal to repair. Follow the excellent steps suggested by other contributors; they got it exactly correct.

Took out the old part(2 screws) and installed the new one and it was fixed, very easy and rewarding, for $20 this was great, a service repair company wanted $150 just to assess the problem.

Meat drawer cover hinge broke

The nipple on the "Pantry End Cap - Left Side" that acted as part of the hinge for the meat drawer cover broke off. After receiving the replacement Pantry End Cap, I removed the meat drawer, removed the 2 vegetable bins, removed the glass shelf above the meat drawer, removed the screws holding the old Pantry End Cap, and pulled the old Cap out. Then I put the new Cap in place, screwed it in, and replaced everything else. The most surprising part of all of this is that I ordered my part on 4/22 and received and installed it on 4/25; 3 days! Thank you PartSelect for your fast response.
