Replacing the rear crisper support in your refrigerator is an easy job, but to complete this repair you will need a small putty knife, a punch or a short flat blade screwdriver, and a small hammer. You may need to replace your rear crisper support if you find that the door will not open or close. In order to complete this repair, you will need to remove all the shelves above the crisper in order to have ample room to work. This part is made from plastic and mounts on the inside of the wall. It is also good to have duct tape on hand, which can be used to protect the liner around the support. This part is sold individually.
This part works with the following brands: Frigidaire, Gibson, Kelvinator, Kenmore, Tappan & White-Westinghouse.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
The part arrived in about 2 days! The right side support that is attached to the inside wall of the refridgerator, that holds the crisper guide, broke apart and would not support the crisper. We took everything off of that shelf and took out the crisper and the glass that is on the shelf. We then carefully pried the support from the interior wall (it was a slow tedious move to be sure we did not damage the wall of the fridge). We made sure all of the pieces were out and snapped the new one into place. For some reason the old one did not want to come out. It broke into many pieces and we carefully pulled all of the little pieces out of the notches

First removed 3 bottom screws on ice dispencer, unpluged the wires then pulled unit out of door. Then removed 2 flat pivot brackets, changed the actuators, then reversed the assembly. On the support studs, were pryed out of side walls and the new one's inserted, used a very small hammer to drive the pin's on the studs.
Remove both crisper pans and covers. Discard old frames and re-use glasses. Use two screw drivers to gently pry out broken supports. Top broken off smooth on one support. Unable to grasp with pliers to pull out. I drilled a small hole in the center of the large expansion pin. I screwed in a small sheet metal screw. Used side cutter pliers to grasp screw and gently rock back and forth to remove center of large pin. Plucked out broken pieces with needle nosed pliers. Gently tap in expansion pins to install new supports. The rest is simple re-assembly using new parts. "Nothing to it but to do it."
Nothing exciting - just replaced the defective drawer covers with the new parts. The guides are poorly designed. the bottom guides on both covers failed.
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.
