Our deli/pantry door lid keeps coming off. The end caps are not broken off, but the door seems to get stuck and wont open or close any farther. I have tried to grease them, (wd 40) and that helped for a few days then it started doing it again.
It sounds like either the drawer is not set in place properly or the lid is not in place properly. You will want to make sure that the drawer is sitting down in the grooves of the rails properly. Also check to make sure that the edges of the lid that make contact with the drawer are on the inside part of the edge of the drawer and not out past the side. Also check behind the drawer to make sure that nothing is behind the drawer and causing it not to roll all the way back into place and causing door to stay open.
My Whirlpool Gold French Door Refrigerator has a Wide N Fresh Deli Drawer. The plastic hinge on the left side that holds the drawer lid snapped off. What can I do?
Answer D. Rodriquez,
The part number for the left endcap is 12656106 To replace this part you will need a 1/4" nut driver. You will need to remove the crisper drawers, deli drawer and the glass and brackets that go across the endcaps. Once removed you will use the nut driver to remove the screws holding the endcap in place. Once screws are removed you will then remove the rail that is on the endcap. The endcap may need to slide forward to remove. Transfer rail to the new endcap and reassemble.
I am trying to replace the right end cap but do not know how to release the part from the back of the refrigerator and do not know how to get the temperature control piece off to put on the new piece. Can you please help? Thank you.
Answer Hello Dionne,
To replace the endcap there are 3 screws with 1/4" hex head that you have to remove. Once removed you would slide the endcap forward. The back piece will come out with it. Once you have the endcap out, at the back where the back piece connects you would release the clips and back piece will come off. On the back of the endcap there are push tabs to release the rod. Making sure that rod is in forward most position release the rod and rotate it to come off the selector knob. Once off the selector knob will just pop off. You will reinstall in reverse.
