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.
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.

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 .
I have a Kenmore 2 door,freezer on bottom, mod# 795.77309600,the shelf that holds the crisper draws cracks,front & back corners, also the back,middle. this is the 2nd time for me. Is there a solution??
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. HarryF
