cut brackets to size and snapped them into place with the caps purchased. I will continue to use PartSelect for all my appliance repair needs.

It took longer to remove the retainer bar from the packaging than it did to install it in the fridge.Both left and right end caps were pushed into their respective places on the retainer bar and then the whole thing was snapped into place on the door of the fridge.Super easy!
Put them together and (do this carefully, as they are light-duty plastic; the reason the originals failed) snapped them into place. Parts were factory-origninal, easy to figure out. Delivery time was exceptional, packaging great.
I snapped off the old, broken parts of the shelves and in the side by side fridge, I just popped on the new shelf. In the White Westinghouse freezer on top fridge, I had to remove (it snapped right off) the broken side shelf retainer bar end cap from the fridge and remove the broken piece piece of plastic from existing shelf retainer bar end cap that was stuck in the retainer bar. I used a letter opener to help get it out. Then I snapped the new door shelf retainer bar end cap into the bar, and snapped the bar end cap back to the door. Both repairs took less than 5 minutes..........and I am a female who isn't very handy!!
snap in place
Pulled refrig away from wall, shut off water supply. Removed two screws holding the old water value on the back of the refrig. Removed the two water lines from the value. Hooked water lines up to the new value and bolted the two screws and the new value on. Turned on water and pushed refrig back into position. Simple and it worked. No more huge blocks of ice. I have Cubes!!!
Took the old ones off and installed the new ones. Simple repair
The repairs were easy. The braces and end caps went together fairly easy. The freezer brace needed to be cut to fit but was easily done. 15-30 minutes was all that was needed.
I ordered 2 bars, 1 for the freezer and 1 for the fridge area, both bars were too big. I am currently looking for someone with a bandsaw to cut these parts to fit the fridge. The 'left and right' caps are perfect though.
The plastic ends are held to the retainer bar by small metal tabs in the retainer bar. Pry up the tabs to remove the broken part. Insert the new part and crimp the tabs back down with a pliers. Couldn't be easier.
First removed existing damaged shelf retainer bar and end caps from freezer door. Next cut down new oversized retainer bar to size with hack saw. Then slightly opened up doubled over metal at each end of retainer bar with pliers and screw driver in order to create the small "nicks" that are needed to house the "bumps" that secure the retainer bar to end caps. Used tin snips for this. Next inserted new end caps and used pliers to crimp secure. Clipped in new assembly in freezer door.
Just had to pop the old pieces out, assemble the new ones, and pop them in. Very easy. Anyone can do it.
I ordered two of the long refrigerator shelf door bars and cut one of them to fit the freezer shelf door because that ready-made door bar was very expensive. The fit after cutting and notching to receive the end caps went very well.
I attempted unsuccessfully to glue this piece several times. Then my wife got the idea for me to search for a replacement on line. It took me less than 5 minutes to reassemble the door rack and reinstall in in our refrigerator. no tools were required. The part fit like the factory original. I wish all repair jobs were this straight forward and simple to do. Having the correct part makes it more than easy. We were both more than pleased with the price and the delivery time.Thanks Part Select!
The refrigerator that came with the purchase of my house had a missing retainer bar in bottom shelf of fridge and a duct-taped retainer bar in freezer. When parts came, all I had to do after removing the duct-tape, was slide up the broken end cap to pop it off then, snap the retainer bars into the end caps and slide them down into place. No tools necessary. Should have done this two years ago when I bought the house!
