This crisper cover front support is used to keep the crisper shelf in place, and may need replacing if the door will not open or close. This part can be used for the front support and mounts to the inside cabinet wall. Replacing this part is an easy repair, but will require a small flat blade screwdriver, a putty knife, and a soft hammer. Remove the crisper and shelf from the refrigerator before replacing the support. The crisper cover front support is held in place with a locking pin. To remove the old part, you will first need to push the pin into the interior of the cabinet using the screwdriver, and then you can pull the support out with a putty knife. After removing the pin and attaching the new support, simply use the soft hammer to lock the new pin in place.
This part works with the following brands: Frigidaire, Gibson, Kelvinator, Kenmore, Tappan & White-Westinghouse.

Used pliers to remove the residual broken stud that was still attached to the wall of the refrigerator, and then just pushed the new part in place. The longest time was spent in removing the food and crisper drawers.

The only difficult aspect of the job was getting the old shelf support stud removed from the refrigerator wall - the support was broken off too short to allow vise grips to hold it. I had to use two screwdrivers to get under and then pop out the stud to the point I could get the pliers to hold. Everything eles pretty much just "fell together" very easily.
it was a no brainer install
The shelving brackets are install much like a blind rivet. I simply used a punch and gently pushed in the plastic center pin / mandrel. I then used a butter knife as a wedge to pull out the shelving supports enough to grab them with a pair of pliers. Simple to do!
Parts Supply had a YouTube video to show it was done. This is one of the best sites to get parts there is. Easy to use, tells you how to install them easily. Thanks Parts Supply, I'll be back whenever I need a appliance part.

Support studs have an expansion fitting - center post has to be pushed through to allow expansion joint to collapse for removal. After installation, this post can be pushed in or pulled out to secure the stud and be the proper length to hold the bins. None of this was obvious - an online tip from another member was invaluable.
I broke off remainder of clip, and used phillipscrewdriver and pushed pin into wall. I lined up new support and pushed in peg to secure
snap out the damage one replace whith the new one
Looked at video on how to remove and reinstall support and followed the instruct ions
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.
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.
I used pliers to get the remaining shelf support studs out, then the new ones just snapped right in place. Very easy repair!
Replacement of bins were simple the crisper cover supports were a little more time consuming since the manufactured piece were glued in. I used a tool that has a 30% tip and hooked the support and pulled in out part of the way and pulled the rest out with my fingers. All in all a simple job...I took the opportunity to do an addition cleaning of the inside of fridge with my extra time. Would also like to say that my parts were delivered within 24 hours of ordering them and the website made purchasing easy and no second guessing, since the model had an exploded version of all the parts available. Thank you
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."
