Lift drawer off sliders. Remove two screws holding drawer slider. Remove two screws holding left side pantry end cap. Screw new end cap into place. Screw draw slide into place. Replace drawer. It was a quick repair and finding the replacement part was real easy since the right side end cap needed replacing last year for the same problem. Weak design, but that's another story.

Right Side End Cap door hinge pin broke from the plastic

  • Customer: William from Puyallup, WA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver

Very easy as described by everyone else here. One tricky part slowed me down a bit. When you try to remove the End Cap after removing the screws you find that it is connected to the climate control bar on the rear part of the fridge cabinet. There is no screw connection, just a tab on the end of the piece, near the center of the cabinet. Just pull the End Cap away from the side, pivoting the entire unit toward the center of the fridge. This will allow the tab to slide out of the opening in the back.

Plastic hinge broken off.

Remove two hanging drawers (fruit and vegetable). Remove top glass and two supports for the chef's pantry. Removed chef's pantry. Remove three large screws from the pantry end cap (front, middle and rear). The end cap can now be removed. NOTE: The pantry drawer slide will still be attached to the end cap. Once the end cap is removed detach the rail by removing two smaller screws. TIP: Use either a nut driver or socket verses a screw driver it works out better. At this point replace the end cap and install in reverse of removal.

Broken Vertical Mullion Rail

  • Customer: Marciann M. from Cheverly, MD
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
The vertical mullion rail had detached from the plastic panel which was secured to the door of the refrigerator. Three wires were exposed. Plastic panel removed (with the exposed wires), new panel (already attached to the new mullion rail) had wires enclosed in plastic, which were then plugged into a corresponding plug on the refrigerator door. Slide the mullion rail on the plastic hinges (one on top and one on bottom). Tighten the bolt on the plastic panel, and voila! A 5 minute job for this 60 year old female.

Ice Maker Leaking

  • Customer: Robert from San Diego, CA
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
I turned off the water and electricity to the refrigerator. Then I removed the ice bin exposing the ice maker. I loosened the two screws on the wall with a 1/4" nutdriver and I removed the horizontal screw on the bottom of the ice maker again with the nut driver. That allowed me to lift off the ice maker so that I could remove the wiring harness from the ice maker. A flat screwdriver helped me push in the retaining tab, and disengage the harness. Installation was in the reverse order. A third hand would have helped reconnect the wiring harness, but I put a shoe box on the top shelf of the freezer compartment to hold the new unit while I connected the wiring harness, making sure to "hear it click" when fully engaged. I then removed the wire "feeler" from the old unit and inserted it in the new one. Inserting the water inlet hose and hanging the ice maker was simple after that. The existing bracket holding the ice maker on the bottom was not rusted so I did not replace it even though a new one came with the ice maker. I should add that I had previously defrosted the freezer in order to remove the ice bin as it could not be removed with the block of ice that had frozen in the front end. I'm a senior citizen with no prior experience in changing an ice maker. I wasn't trying to set an amount of time it could take which was about 40 minutes, including the time it took to turn off/on the water and electric breaker and go to the garage for a flat screwdriver and find the right size nutdriver, and next time I could probably do the job in about 20 to 30 minutes!
