most importantly on the page with the necessary part..cripser support for the refrigerator--- there was a brief insructional video on how to properly dislodge the broken part and replace it with the new showing the simple tools needed. I am not handy at all but it took me all of two minutes thanks to the helpful video.

Were these instructions helpful?
just slid them in and gently taped the pegs in
Installed new support
had to remove broken by pushing 1pin then remove.put new one in reset pin done.
I followed the excellent directions in the video linked to the email from PartSelect. The installation was quick and easy. I rated the whole operation "a bit difficult" because, if I had seen the video before I removed the old part, I would have known that you tap the support's center rod gently INTO the wall instead of wrestling it violently OFF the wall.
The old pins have to be completely dislodged (preferably with an awl) before placing the new crisper support. The new pin of the support should be driven easily into the hole on the refrigerator´s wall with a conventional hammer (carpenter type). If you find resistance while hammering on the pin, do not continue. This probably means that the old pin is still inside the hole and does not allow the new pin to go in.
Drove pins all the way thru supports & then pryed support off. Tapped new supports in place. Watch the vidio on installing new supports. I probably wouldn't have been able to get the supports off without the trick I learned to just knock them on thru. Took all of 5 minutes to replace 4 supports.
The video was very helpfull. They were fixing the same refrigerator that I have. I punched in the set pin on the old part. Removed the old part by prying it out with a putty knife. Inserted the new part and drove in the set pin. I was glad that PartSelect had my parts. The repair shop in Fort Wayne Indiana did not even show this repair part on their computer.
The door bin was an easy fix, just slip the edges into the raised supports of the door.However, replacing the pegs which support the crisper bins, was a lot more difficult. Removing the old peg was not as easy as one might think. Because the pegs were broken, there was nothing to grab hold of. Having the replacement peg was helpful in determining how the old one was attached to the refrigerator wall. I needed to get a small blade screwdriver, and also a thin pocketknife blade, behind the base of the peg and wiggle them enough to get hold of it with the tip of needle-nosed pliers. The peg broke off in several pieces. Some I could remove by snapping them off and others had to be pushed in behind the refrigerator wall because there was no way to get hold of then. Once that was done, the new peg popped easily into place.
Have not really done the repair yet( frig is still to full of Thanksgiving leftovers) but I am sure that with the video that was provided by this site the job will be very simple. Many thanks to the person who put the video together.John Donnelly
I read other comments and most suggested the fix is less than five minutes and a couple tricks (push the remaining piece into the frig if you can't pull out with pliers)and I did exactly that. Parts came in 2 days, repair took 5 minutes - it took longer to open the package. My wife thinks I'm a star!
Pried the broken support insert out with a screw driver and pulled it out with pliers, then inserted the new and pressed it in and Presto the drawer now works good again.
Punch out center of old support, then pull it out. Insert new suppport, insert center and tap flat with hammer. All done!
I had removed the current cover from the refrigerator by lifting it out of place. I removed the glass insert and placed it in the new crisper cover. I placed the new assembly into position, added the drawer back into the drawer slides, then the refrigerator was back to new!
It was pretty easy. The hardest part was getting the supports that had snapped off out of the walls of the refrigerator. Once that was accomplished it was a breeze.
