Whirlpool Refrigerator Shelf falling off support pins regularly

The shelf, which goes in the refrigerator door supported (supposedly) by white plastic pins, doesn't seem to be wide enough because it falls off the pin support regularly causing things to come crashing down. I'm at a loss on how to fix it, where to find a wider shelf or longer pins to support the shelf. Rest of refrigerator works fine!

Hello,
I got a new refrigerator that has the same problem. I solved it by cutting a triangular pencil grip for children's pencils down so they extend out just past the pegs on both sides (making them longer). The grips fit on snug, just like on a pencil, you don't have to screw the shelves in permanently which allows them to be taken off and moved. Works like a charm and holds the shelves in very snug.

Flap on Ice chute came off I need to put it back on. Whirlpool Refrig. With water and Ice with a flap over the ice to keep hot air from getting in.


I'm in the middle of the same problem on my own refrigerator right now. The flapper swings on a steel pin which passes through a stationary plastic tab. That plastic tab can break off, allowing the door to fall out of position. Look up into the mechanism to see if this is your problem. Whirlpool makes a modification kit, part #8201756. It's not on the original parts list, so do a web search for Whirlpool 8201756. I hope this helps.

Freezer shelf issue, roller adjustment, Icemaker problems


There is not a recall per say on this issue but there is what's called a training bulletin.. The cabinet tends to spread out causing the shelves to fall out typically in the middle.Some models have wider shelves that will not fall out but also can not be pulled out due to the recess in the sides of the inside of the cabinet. The other fix is installing a little c clip on the sides of the trouble shelf in hopes that it will stop it from falling out. part # is WB4X174 and I have not had good results with them but it is a cheap fix. 2 per side are needed. Ge would have to be contacted to see if wider shelves are available but they are very expensive!

Door to refrigerator will not close properly.


The refrigerator door seal is being broken when you open the freezer door? Sounds like the rubber magnetic strip needs to be replaced on the refrig. door, they wear out after a number of years.
