The lid that covers the front of the lower meat / produce drawer hinges upward on two small ( easily broken) plasic pins, one on each side of the drawer. One pin is moulded into each "END CAP" that also supports the drawer glides and glass shelf above. The entire end cap must be replaced to repair the hinge. The left side is easy (it's the only one I had to replace); the right side might be more difficult because the right end cap includes a temperature control.1) Remove the two produce drawers above the lower drawer.2) Lift off the front glass shelf support, the glass shelf, and the rear glass shelf support from below the two produce drawers.3) Slide the lower drawer half way out. Remove the drawer lid by disengaging it from the remaining undamaged hinge pin on the OK end cap. Careful not to break the good one.4) Slide the lower drawer all the way out, then lift up and towards you to remove it from its glides.5) Using a 1/4" nutdriver or socket, remove the three recessed screws. Leave the drawer glide alone for now.6) Pull the front of the end cap up and towards you about 3/4" to disengage it from a small retainig button at the top front. Pull the end cap toward you to disengage the two rear retaining fingers.7) Using a small Phillips screwdriver, remove the drawer glide from the broken end cap and attach it to the replacement end cap. Note which end is the front before removing it.8) Reassemble in reverse order. Again, be careful with the hinge pins.
First I removed the drawers above the pantry drawer. Then I took out the pantry drawer. I unsrewed 3 screws that attached the part to the refreg. I then removed the rails that were attached to the part I was repalcing and put them on the new part. I then install the new part. Put the firg back together. It was extremely easy and took about 5 minutes to do.
Pantry Cover: I just slided out the tray, and unscrewed the left pantry panel that was broken, and replaced it with the new one, then put in the new cover after sliding the trays back in.Ice Maker:I unplugged the power connector in the back, unscrewed the ice maker with a flat screw driver (3 screws), slide it out, and then unplugged the wiring from the old ice maker and put it into the new one, mounted the new ice maker back in, make sure the lever is working, and then closed the freezer to let it cool down so that water can start flowing to it when it becomes cold enough (took about a good hour or so before water started filling the ice maker). Once the freezer was cold enough, water started filling the ice maker, and it begin making ice again.

The peg on the door broke off the left end cap. This seems to be a bad design on the part of amana. It's happened twice now. Very fragile. The repair was so easy that my wife tackled it while I was at work because I was too busy to do it. She said the only problem was removing all the trays, shelves, and drawers out of the fridge and putting that back together which is a bit cumbersome and tricky. The actual part removal and replacement is straight forward once the other stuff is removed to get to the screws that are holding the end cap on. When I did it for the right end cap it was a bit more challenging because there were more parts that had to come off and go back on. I am happy that this can be easily repaired, but not happy with amana that the sliding drawer and door are so susceptible to breakage at the two pegs. This is a flaw in the design.
I removed the drawers above and the glass shelf, then removedthe screws to remove the broken end cap then reversed the proceedure to install the new part. Was simple to do and it works fine.
after pulling the draw out. had to remove 3 screws on the left side, pull out one part, and then replaced the broken pin. put everything back in place and it was done.perfect job.saved alot of money. thanks to part-select
Remove crispers & bottom drawer. Removed glass piece. Unscrewed piece( small nuts not screw heads) There is also a nubbie at front. You must remove by sliding out & lifting back of part. Reuse screws to replace piece & drawer runner. It took 15 to 20 minutes. I am all thumbs. If I can do anyone can do!
Repair was simple and just as described by several others on this site! From finding the part, ordering, quick shipping and instructions, PartsSelect made this job a breeze to complete.
This was actually very easy, take the two crispers out and the glass panel over the large drawer and the two holding brackets that hold the glass above. then just use a nutdriver to remove the three nuts, gently pull the piece out and remove the slider with a screwdriver (two screws). Attach the slider to the new piece reinstall, it's very easy. Took 15 minutes tops.This was for the left side the right side might be more problematic with the additional humidity controls I don't know ....
had to remove shelving, crisper's, then unscrewed end cap. lifted it off set pin. and reversed for reinstallation. reefer door is reversed which makes it prone to close on crisper if not fully closed
It was very easy. I removed the two crisper drawers and the glass shelf above the pantry section. I removed two bolts with a nut driver and one screw from the slide track. I pulled out the broken piece and did that all in reverse. Took 5 mins tops. Also I wanted to say I got my replacement part in two days with standard shipping.
I did it quickly since this was the second time it broke. For easier access, remove the glass shelf above the drawer and the two plastic strips that hold it in place. Remove the two screws (yes, there are three screw holes on each side, but there are screws in only the front and center positions; probably to save money on screws) with either a flathead screwdriver or a socket wrench, which works better. There are two tabs on the end cap that slide into slots in the back of the refrigerator. There is also a plastic retainer on the side of the refrigerator in the front that attaches to the end cap. Gently lift up the front of the end cap and pull forward to remove it. Then unscrew and remove the metal slide bars and install them on the new end cap. Then do everything in the reverse order. Fit the two tabs into the slots in the back of the fridge, then position the fitting over the plastic retainer on the side of the fridge, and gently push back and down. Then screw the end cap back in place. Repplace the two strips for the glass shelf and then slide the shelf back into position. The last thing is to refit the tray door onto the tabs on both end caps. Slide it into position onto one end cap tab, then GENTLY push the tab back on the other side and fit it into position on the tray cover.This sounds more complicated than it is, but there are no instructions with the replacement piece, which in my opinion is bad for customer relations. This is also a really bad design. If you accidentally leave the tray door open when you close the refrigerator door, the refrigerator door will hit the tray door and break one of the tabs.
