Slider rails broke from weight/age and broke cover glass
We bought the refrigerator second hand, so one of the drawer slides was already partly damaged. Eventually both rails broke on the same side of the fridge taking the cover glass with them. All I had to do was remove the broken rails by unscrewing them from the interior walls of the fridge, kept the screws and used them with the new rails because they were in good shape. Drawers slid right in. The new glass fit perfectly where the other had been.
The most time I spent was taking the food out of the fridge and putting it back in. I did it by myself while my husband watched the baby.

A plastic drawer and a couple of plastic side rails were broken
As I unscrewed the side rails I made note of exactly how they were to go back on. Then I cleaned, cleaned, and cleaned. Found some stuff back in there that looked like steak but I couldn't be sure so I didn't eat it. I screwed the new side rails on using a regular screw driver, not a drill, and everything fit like a drawer in a refrigerator. I ordered the screws just in case but I did not need them. I gently encouraged my wife to not overfill the drawers in the future and she was very thankful for the instructions.

Slide rail just crumbled
I watched a You Tube and completed the job in less than 15 minutes. Took the drawer out then took the two screws out of the rail. Put screws in the new rail. Took the White face off the old drawer and put on the new drawer and places the drawer back on the rail slides. Job done.

Crisper Drawer side rails
The side rails on the crisper drawers had broken, and I had them replaced in 15 minutes or less! Very easy. I had also bought the bearing slides because it said I would need them, 3 for each rail, but the new rails came with the bearing slides on them, so I will be returning them,

Top and bottom slide rails.
Each slide rail is secured by 2 Phillips screws. Remove the 2 Phillips screws on each slide rail. Reinstall in reverse manner of removal. A magnetized screwdriver is a big help for reinstalling the screws.

Sn GA250811. The left slide rail 473 is broken. GE does not have it. They say the part number is WR72X28250. Is there a Generic replacement for one or both rails. Can the right rail be inverted to work? I see that is available. Please advise. Also looking to get a lower tray pan WR32S1459 and frame WR17X10542. I see some are one piece online. Please advise.

Hi Nick, Thank you for your question. Where the left side snack pan glide rail, part number WR72X282, has been discontinued by GE and you have contacted them and they do not have the part, you may also be able to locate the part you need by trying the following: Using a search engine to type your part number and see if other retailers still have this part in stock. Visiting online stores such as eBay and finding sellers that have this part. Trying retailers and repair stores in your local area to see if they have the part in their inventory. Talking to a local repair technician, who may have the part you need, or may be able to repair your existing part. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!
