Missing wire shelf bracket in whirlpool side by side freezer

Two types of brackets are missing from the right (refrigerator) side of the wire shelves. One type is essentially a post on which the front of the shelf rests while the other is a sort of small cup in which the exposed end of the wire shelf in back rests. Both types are white plastic and about 9/16 to 3/4 inch with square backs that slip over slightly smaller white plastic squares fixed into the wall of the freezer. These fixed plastic squares are shaped so as to provide male wings onto which the female slots on the brackets slip to hold the brackets in place. I need to find a few of each type of bracket but I haven't been able to locate them.

SOURCE: water leaking inside of refrigerator from freezer

The defrost drain is frozen, you need to take the cover off inside the freezer and there will be a drain hole probably coverd with ice, you will need to pop most of the ice out first then I use a turkey baster and a tub of hot water. Squirt the hot water in the hole over and over again untill it drains. Then just wipe everything down. Problem solved.

SOURCE: Fridge and freezer warm at top, colder but not normal on lower shelves

How old is this frig? If it is older that 12-15 years, get a new one. Make sure there is not blockage to keep the air from circulating properly. The vent from the freezer to the cooler should also be free from blockage as well.

Your refrigerator has a defrost drain blockage behind the evaporator in your your freezer compartment. Some models like yours have leak in the turns as the water leaves the freezer. I recommend that you unplug and remove the cover to the evaporator and check the defrost condensate tray below the evaporator. A wet vacuum cleaner and poring a solution with clorox in the drain will help you clean locate the leak and where the blockage may be downline.. I do have the manual on yours and can help you solve this. Some times this is a factory defect and I can help you solve the freezing drain problem. Let me know, Sea Breeze

Heavy duty construction adhesive


Ceramic is particularly difficult to bond to due to the polished surface. The shelf you describe is probably heavy, but you have no dimensions or weight provided. I see these shelves fail frequently when they are only "glued" to the wall. It should have been installed to the wall first with a bracket arrangement, then the wall flashed and tiled around the shelf (presuming you have tile walls).

I would recommend that you use stainless steel brackets fastened into the walls (may require using toggle bolts - be sure to run the bolt through the bracket first!) to support the shelf. Use brackets at each wall, then use silicone sealant over the fastener heads. Use the largest brackets that the shelf will allow, you might be able to just epoxy the shelf on top of the brackets rather than trying to install fasteners into the shelf piece, which might break it.

This vendor has nice stainless steel brackets:http://www.gsproducts.co.uk/stainless-steel-corner-angle-brackets/

Hi, Did you figure it out yet? We have same fridge. Compressor went on it a few months ago. Should have a metal bracket horizontal along the back. The wheels slip inside it. Lift front end as you insert back end of shelf.

GSS25LGMCC Side-by-Side. On left freezer side, foam filled walls have contracted and top two wire shelves can no longer rest of molded side supports and fall. Need shelves about 1/2" wider


never heard of that happening,are you sure you're not missing a support that the shelf slides on or you have the wrong shelf for that spot.i'm sure you tried the shelves in all the slots,if the wall did push out like you say the only thing i can suggest is to buy another support and get longer screws and put the screw through both supports and hang them like a single support to make up the difference.next what caused this to happen,is the freezer staying cold?if you give a parts store your model number they will sell you the same shelves that you have.

Er FF. Have replacement fan. How to access


Unplug the refrigerator from power. Remove the rear cover in the freezer. You may have to remove shelf brackets or the ice maker. Pull the rear cover forward and out of the way and disconnect the wire harness to the fan. Should be 2 screws holding the fan bracket in place. Remove these screws and pull the fan assembly out. You now have access to fan.

Replacing Defrost Heater and Bracket in Freezer Section of Fridge


I ended up having to remove things in this order: all shelves, ice maker insert, ice maker top ice tray, ice maker lower motor housing, shelving support rails (2), rear evaporator coil cover. This exposed the evaporator coils (which were already dry since the fridge had been off for two days) and most importantly, the defrost heater element below the coils. The heater element was easily unplugged from it's two connectors. I tested the unit with an ohm meter and it indicated it was open (infinity resistance). I then knew it was bad. I replaced it with a new unit and put everything back together in reverse order taking care to use the same screws. The fridge appears to be back in working order.

Freezer Shelves are too small for freezer and keep falling when I put food on them...


I did the tubing solution others mentionedand it worked great.. instead of the 1/2" OD 1/4" ID reinforced tubing. I bought Polyethylene tubing at 3/8" OD, 1/4" ID.

Cut the tubing into lengths that will fit between the rails, split with a utility knife down the whole length. Use a screw driver to force open the end and slip the tubing over the rail.

Pic attached shows the tubing cut along side and forced on to the rail along with a pic of the tag that was on the tubing in an inset. I bought a 25' roll because i was in a hurry and not paying attention. I did 2 shelves, needed something under 1' per side per shelf. so I used 4' total for the whole project.

Shelves that wont stay


I had the same problem. With the basket install empty I notice there was about ¼" gap from the bar the far most side of the side rail. SO I removed the left side rail and found a peice of laminate flooring and cut it to the same size of the the bracket (also predrill the holes so the screw holes match up). I had to buy 3 new screws that were ½" longer the orginal. I reassembled the wood and rail bracket . I then slid the basket in the rail, then started the load the backet up with frozen items. It works perfectly. The basket does not fall any more! Total cost... 3 screws ($0.15).
