Can't remove broken refrigerator shelf studs

My mother has a 20 year old Kenmore refrigerator. Several of the shelf studs broke - I was able to find the replacement stud; however, I cannot get the old stud out. I've tried to pry them out, and I've tried using a wrench as well. Any suggestions or tricks of the trade? Thank you in advance to all who respond.

    Well, mom is 82 - it's not likely she'll be buying a new frig anytime soon, unless its absolutely necessary. Other than the broken shelf pins, the fridge works just as good now as it did the day she bought it....

I had the same problem and used a pair of pliers to twist the broken shelf stud 90 degrees and it pulled right out with minimal force.
Can you respond with the link of where you found the relacement studs as I haven't been able to find one yet. Thanks.

I have a KitchenAid Refrig..#KSRS25F. It has a broken shelf support stud. How do I get the broken one out?? Thank you


Looking at the parts exploded view for this make and model all the shelves in both the freezer and refridgerator side are either on rails or the fixed shelves hook into standards in the rear.
If its a fixed shelf lift the shelf and pull it forward. The rails seem to have a single screw towards the rear and from what I can see a hook that fita a slot in the front.
Here are the exploded parts diagrams They may help:

What is the clunking noise made after the refrigerator stops running? Its a Kenmore and is 10 yrs old. We have thoroughly cleaned behind and beneath the refrigerator and now the noise seems louder.


The clunking noise you hear , is probably when the compressor shuts off , due to temp reached or when it goes into defrost . An internal motor mount spring , inside the compressor , is broken ( rusted and broke ) . The refrig can go on working for years , without any problem , except noisey , when it cuts off . To stop the noise , replaceing the compressor is the only option . I have heard of placeing objects under 1 leg of the compressor , to " re-adjust " the ballance , but thru my experience , another spring broke , causing more knocking .

Broken shelf


Lenabs,
I was able to find the shelf I needed by typing the brandname and the fridge model number online and I got the number of the part I needed from a diagram but the bad news is that it was aver $40 per shelf and it was just a piece of plastic. The new one would be just as weak as the old one. I finally decided to add some strength to the existing shelf with some hardware store aluminum and glued it on with some JB Weld. I suggest you take the broken plastic piece in with to an ACE hardware and you will be surprised how many pieces of precut shiny aluminum are there for the having.
You can use that JB Weld to join the parts and make them stronger than new. Let me know if you need some more help.
