This part works with the following brands: GE, Hotpoint & Kenmore.
At first it appeared all was lost since the sales and sevice facility said parts for our GE refrigerator were no longer avalible. We were looking at a $1200 dollar purchase. We decided however to research the internet and see if parts could be obtained. We found Parts Select and to our suprise parts were readily available. We order the drawer side rails and received them within days. The repairs were completed in minutes and for less the twenty bucks. Steven

I removed all items from area of refrigerator. I removed the drawers. I unscrewed the broken slide rail. Upper drawer had left side broken. Lower drawer had right side broken. I simply screwed the new slide rail in. The glass shelf didn't fit, so I took a pair of needle nose pliers and broke off a tiny piece on the slide rail that was preventing the glass from dropping in. (I checked the old one first and could see the same thing had been done) I screwed each rail in and dropped the glass shelf back in. (The lower shelf was broken and I ordered a replacement at the same time as the broken rails. I put the glass into the plastic holder of the old (broken) shelf and slipped it back in. Very easy. I'm a housewife not a repairman. I saved a few dollars on a house call.
Removed the storage bins, unscrewed the old rails, screwed in the new rails and saved a Sears service call plus their mark up on the parts. Estimated savings was about $100.
I replaced all the parts and it was easy. I still need a door drawer that I will get later.
remove the 8 screws 2 for each railinstalled the new railsslid in the meat drawer and glassslid in the vegetable drawer and glasspresto - like new fridge !
First removed the old sliders, then screwed in the new sliders, replaced all four within minutes.
Each rail required removing two screws which were used to install the new rail. Each one took about 5 minutes however cleaning the recesses was the most effort.
Unscrewed old ones, screwed in new ones. Really simple and fast. Took awhile to decide which rails to buy at first, but pictures online really helped.
It was REALLY EASY to ID the parts with your website. I found exactly the rail I needed, and it recommended I buy the other rail as well. Since they were both 15 years old, that sounded like a good idea. The rails installed in about 10 minutes total. Two screws on each rail.The door switches were more challenging, but it was because there was a lot of sticky soda on our old door switch, making me think it somehow needed other tools to remove it. No, just patience and effort. Once I removed all sticky stuff from the old switch, it pried out with a flat head screwdriver, the wire plugs came right off, and plugged in the new one. 10 minutes to get the old part out, 1 minute to put the new part in!

Remove drawers and shelves. Remove and save the 2 screws holding each old rail. Replace new rails using old screws. Replace shelves and drawers.Be careful: PartSelect lists several different rails for the same number in the parts diagram. Make sure the rail you buy matches the one you're replacing.
I removed all items from the door to make it lighter. Then, with the door closed, I lifted the door and placed a 2x4 plus a paint stirrer shim under the door to hold it off the bottom hinge. I used a small socket set to remove the two hex head screws from the existing hinge assembly, which I then removed from the door. Using the same socket set and socket I removed the two screws from the bottom of the door that were holding on the upper piece of the door closing cam. I took care to note the orientation and position of two shims and cover that were with the cam. I used the old shims with the new upper cam piece that came with the hinge assembly and attached them to the door with the original two screws. Finally I inserted the new hinge assembly and mounted it to the refrigerator frame. I finished the job by lifting the door and removing the 2x4 and shim. The new parts worked perfectly.The drawer slide rail involved removing the Convertable Meat Pan drawer and lifting off the top glass plate. The slide rail was removed by unscrewing two phillips screws. The two screws were used to attach the new drawer slide rail then I replaced the top glass plate and drawer. Very easy assembly operation.
Ordering was easy and delivery was fast. BUT, the parts I received were not exactly the same as the ones I was replacing, even tough I certainly used my fridge model number when ordering the parts.As a result the assembly is awkward, one of the rails did not fit and had to be cut half an inch shorter or so (there was some cover on the back of the fridge which prevented the rail from installing).The rear mounting holes for all four rails also needed to be drilled anew.The old drawer does not quite match the new rail either.Overall I am not impressed. But to the partselect credit - the fridge is fairly old, 12 years.
It was just a matter of replacing the broken parts, and reassembling the ice machine. Nothing too difficult.
It was a simple matter to just unscrew the remaining pieces of the old slides and then screw in the new parts. Because I had waited until several needed replacing, it was important to make sure I had the right part for the right side and the right drawer.
