This left side drawer slide rail is thirteen inches long. It is clear and made of plastic.
This part works with the following brands: Whirlpool, Admiral, Estate, Inglis, Kenmore, KitchenAid, Roper, Maytag, Crosley, Jenn-Air, Hardwick, Magic Chef, Amana, Caloric & Glenwood.
First I removed the shelf with rail components from the refrigerator, then removed the plastic rails from the shelf assembly. The new rails did not come with the nylon wheel and retaining screw assemblies, so they were removed from the old rails and installed in the new rails using an #2 phillips head screwdriver. I then snapped the new rails into the shelf assembly and re-installed the shelf into the fridge.

Removing the broken rail was very difficult. There is a small notch that actually holds it in place. To remove the old rail, there was a hole in the metal bracket next to where the notch was. You had to apply pressure through the hole to the rail to slightly bend it to get it to release the notch to slide the old rail out. After the old rail was removed, the new rail with rack wheel installed, slid in and snapped into place very easily.
First, removed glass shelf from fridge. Then removed old rails from underside of the glass shelf; this was a bit tricky because the rails have a plastic catch, so I had to wedge a screwdriver between the rail and the steel hardware under the shelf. Then I gently hammered out the rail. Reinstalling the new rails was very easy.
1-Removed drawer; removed drawer shelve which contained rails; slid old rail out of shelve mounts with light taps on ends. 2- Screwed on the new rollers to rail guides; reinstalled new guides into shelve mounts; re-installed shelve onto mountings in refrigerator; re-inserted drawer nto new rails-Done! Received parts 48 hrs. after placing order!Great job! Third positive experience with Parts Select.
The drawer guide mounts in slots on a bracket hanging below the shelf above. Only had to use a screwdriver to move the plastic tab in the slotted bracket then slide the whole plastic guide out. ordering the new one was easy, cheap, and quick through PartsSelect.com. The new part just popped in without tools. Very easy!
I slid the meat tray out of the broken rails and after cleaning it I used a flat head screw driver to pry gently the plastic rails slightly away from the metal tray to unlock the broken plastic rails and slid them forward to free them off the metal tray.Replacement was very easy sliding the new plastic rails back on the metal tray until they locked into place then screwed the plastic wheels on to the new rails and replaced the repaired tray back into place. Thank you Part Select for your service and help. Terry R. from Oklahoma City
I first looked at the current assembly so that I could see how the new parts were to go (thanks Dad!) Then I removed the drawer and unscrewed the rails. Next, I removed the guide wheels from the old set of rails and installed them into the new rails. After that it was just a matter of screwing in the new rails and sliding the old drawer front plate onto the new drawer. Whala! Back in business.
Removed and replaced by hand
I had a heck of a time getting the broken rail off the drawer. I had to pry quite a bit with a screwdriver to get it to slide off. Other than that, it was like falling off a log.
First I removed all food items from above and in the Meat drawer. Then I removed the meat drawer from the slides and placed it on the counter. Then I removed the shelf that the slide rails are attached to and turned it upside down on some folded towels. Next I inserted a screwdriver (Flat tip) between the bracket and the rail I am about to remove. This released the locking tabs. Then I slid the old rail back and it popped off. I install the new rails without the screwdriver inserting them in the slots and sliding them into place. Next I reinstalled the glass shelf back into the fridge. Finally I inserted the meat drawer back into the new slides. The Job went rather easy, just take your time and don't pry the screw driver too much, just enough to clear the locking tab.
I took the original shelf out of the fridge with the brackets and the slide rail attached. The most difficult part was actually dismounting the slide rail from the bracket so I could replace it. I did this by leveraging the rail away from the bracket with a screwdriver so it could move freely and then banged it out. Once the old slide rail was off I just snapped in the new piece, screwed the wheel from the old rail onto the new one.
tricky part was removal of the old drawer rails. they have a little nub that sides in but does not slide out (the nub is a small triangle piece) so easily. needed to revmove the nub by use of a chisel (sharp knife would work). once that nub was gone the old rail slipped out and the new one slid right in.
Examining the right side rail, which would not stay in, there was a small projection on the outside of it which had sheared off. The fix was a straight replacement, just slide it in from the rear. It took a good bit of force to get the ramped projection over the hump and into its slot.
Remove rails by sliding toward the rear of the draw, remove screw holding roller wheels with screw driver, installrollers onto new rails, tighten screw, and insert new rails.Force rails forward till rail locks into place.
