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.

Jbl 75815 stud broke


First, it really depends on your car model. normally its easier to replace broken stud on the rear disk than the front if your car is a rear wheel drive. On the rear, the moment you remove your tires you only need to initiate impacts on the disk to loosen it and after removing the disk you can hammer the broken stud to dislodge it from its fitted hole then pressure fit the new one in place by hammering it in unless you have a machine that can do it. On the other hand, replacing broken stud on the front requires you more efforts as you need to detach other items like the disc plate cover, and if necessary dislodge the spindle assembly from the velocity joint to create space for the broken stud to be removed from its hole.

My mother in law has a kenmore dryer that is 15 - 20 years old. It will start but the dru will not turn she says it does not have a broken belt


Verification of the belt in place would first need to be done, then check to see if the motor is running.

The belt could have jumped off

if the belt was replaced recently, It might not have been the right belt.

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 .

Does the wheel barring have to be replaced when the stud is broke


If you use a hammer to drive the broken stud out you can cause damage to the bearing.
If you use a wheel stud press, the hub bearing will not be affected. The press will remove the old stud and install the new one.
Good luck.

Broken wheel stud


1. get new studs and nuts
2.remove wheel
3. remove caliper at bracket to spindle connection(2 18mm bolts?)you may need to remove caliper from bracket,but not always nessacery. Or remove drum,then to #5
4.remove rotor,will need a hammer, tap inbetween studs dont wreck good studs and see if new studs can be installed without removing parking brake shoes. If there is no clearance to get new stud in you will need to remove shoes.
5.Pound out old studs place new stud in hole use a washer on outside then put a nut on and tighten to install stud, A air gun or some type of impact tool will be very helpful. Check to see that stud has enough threds to pull stud all the way thru ,add more washers if nessecary dont let the nut run out of threds it will **** to get back off and wreck new stud.
6. if you dont have air gun or feel comfertable removing brakes bring it to a reputable garage, shouldnt cost more than $70+ parts to get all new studs put in on one wheel.

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.
