Removed bottom freezer drawer while moving & can't get back in
Nothing broken, just can't figure out if I have to unscrew the runners on the drawer to get the brackets in the freezer to go back in or just what the combination is. Also the brackets in the freezer seem to be spaced wider than the runners on the drawer??? Obviously didn't pay enough attention to what the freezer drawer looked like installed when removing the drawer to fit the frig through the front door. Can't find a manual on the internet. Arrgh, please help or send photo!!

The drawer is easily removed. Make sure you switch off the power first and I always unplug just to be sure.
9.1 Drawer Front Removal
9.1.1 Slide open drawer.
9.1.2 Locate draw pin on either side of the tub. (These are white plastic pins, about 1.5cm diameter. You can't miss them.)
9.1.3 Using a sharp pair of long nose pliers or slip jaw pliers grasp the center dividing web of the pin and pull away from the tub to remove the pin. Support the drawer front with your hand while doing this.
Note: The pin web is vertical. 9.1.4 With both pins removed the bottom of the drawer front can now be eased out slightly. 9.1.5 Now carefully pull the drawer front down to allow it to come free from the handle and top locating slots. 9.1.6 Carefully remove the earth wire from the tab on the drawer front. (if it is an integrated model you will also need to unplug the integrated badge from the isolating module) 9.1.7 Refit in reverse manner ensuring the drawer slides are right forward and the pin secures through the hook on the front end of the slide. Note: When reinserting the pins make sure the dividing web is vertical.
9.2 Tub Removal 9.2.1 Open the drawer fully. 9.2.2 Depress the right-hand tub clip and push it back about 30mm (1 inch). Repeat for the left-hand side. These clips are on the runners and are usually white plastic. 9.2.3 The tub may now be lifted up off the drawer runners. It's amazing but the drawer simply lifts out. 9.2.4 Slide both runners back into the product. 9.2.5 Refit in reverse manner.
We have a different model Samsung, and I've heard a vibrating or buzzing noise twice. First, if the water filter isn't an exact fit (even Samsung's filters rattle), it will rattle. Second, if either of the ice makers gets stuck or jammed, it can make a vibrating noise. If our freezer drawer isn't making a good seal, ice will build up under the drawer or in the slides. Ours makes more of a humming noise, when this happens. Other areas to check: something stuck in the runner of your drawers or shelves (if yours pull out). There are also vents that draw air in and out of the cooling unit, and things in front of them may vibrate or rattle, too.
It sounds like you either have a drawer that's off track, or something has fallen behind the drawer, not allowing the drawer to close. Empty the freezer, and pull the drawer all the way out. Look behind the basket of the drawer and see if some thing has fallen behind it. If nothing is behind the drawer, then the drawer must be off track. At this point, you'll need to pull the drawer out to the most extended point. Now push the drawer back in about 3-4 inches an **** it open fairly hard. Not hard enough to move the whole refrigerator. Just enough to put the drawer back on track. Hope this helps. : )
Yes, go to hardwaretree.com or rufkahrs.com. The Double Acting Mini Slides DSP-8817/373 should work. Even though I only had one drawer to repair I bought three pairs in anticipation of further repairs.
Has something fallen behind the drawer, and is preventing it from sliding back all the way? Remove the drawer by pulling it all the way out and lift it up and out. Look for anything that has fallen back there.
The rear panel can be removed,i have done it.I removed the 4 hex head screws from the top & bottom of the panel,and firmly pulled it forward.The reason i say pulled firmly is that when panel came out the back of the freezer was solid with ice.I have defrosted the freezer,dried any water from the unit and replaced the panel.Fingers crossed,so far,so good.In my case this build up of ice was definately the reason the drawers were not sitting in the correct position,as it caused the rear panel to 'bulge' out.Hope this helps.....
You said, you have the Kenmore Elite Trio Bottom Freezer. You moved your refrigerator
to a new home and removed the bottom freezer door, but can not seem to
figure out exactly how to put it back on correctly.
It's too much for me to tell you myself. This is easier! Page 9 shows you how to remove and reinstall doors.
