    Thanks-- I eventually pulled strainght out and the grille came off. It is an old unit, no manual. There is a "male" tab on the grille, and "female" on the refridgerator.

Look at the top slots in the grille. If there is a slight cutaway near the ends that is where the release tabs should be. If no release tabs, try a gentle lifting pressure in the grille as you try to pull away. They are made to be removed by the user. Check the manual if you can find it. If no luck, reply, I'll see if I can find one.

I need to clean the grill in hotpoint refrigerator. When I hope the door to the freezer there two screws hold down grill.The refrigerater is model No. HTS16HBMBRCC HOTPOINT

General Electric (GE) Profile refrigerators have a grille on the bottom of the front of the refrigerator. The grille allows air to be pulled from the kitchen into the lower compartment of the appliance by the condenser fan, which cools the refrigerator's compressor. At times this grille must be removed, such as when you are cleaning the compressor, emptying and cleaning the drain pan or adjusting the refrigerator's leveling legs to level the appliance. The grille is designed for easy removal: It is secured in place using only two screws
  • 1 Open the refrigerator doors to at least 90 degrees.
  • 2 Remove the two Phillips screws securing the grille to the cabinet. They are at the top portion of the front of the grille.
  • 3 Pull the grille away from the front of the cabinet to remove it.

  • Phillips screwdriver
    will be needed

    If your refrigerator is frost-free, check the drainage tray at the bottom, probably behind a removeable grille. You may find the tray is full of all kinds of disgusting stuff collected by drainage during defrost cycles. Remove the tray and clean it thoroughly. Reinstall the clean tray.

    One thing to defienently check is the condenser coil for extreme dust build up by removing the front grill below the refrig door and clean ALL dust from it. Also if it isn't too dusty pull the refrrigerator out and remove lower service panel from back and check if the fan motor by the compressor is running.

    I have the exact problem with my LG LHD45EL as lubbock51's Aug 17, 2010 question. (see below) Isn't there anyone out there that's had this same problem and resolved it. I too am afraid to pry the grill for fear of breaking made out of plastic so it won't take much to break the grill if I did.

    HI. This may be a drain pan issue.

    The drain pan should be removed and cleaned at least once a year. The drain pan is located at the bottom of the refrigerator behind the front grill. Remove the grill, which snaps into place. Grasp the drain pan while pulling slightly upward and forward.

    Clean the pan with warm soapy water or warm water and baking soda.

    If the pan rattles when it is replaced, it is too close to the compressor. Simply reposition the tray.

    If you have an ice-maker, check the water supply hose going into and coming out of the water inlet valve. The hoses may be loose here.

    How do I remove the bottom grill from kenmore trio bottom freeze

    The grill should pull off from the corners.
    If the bottom of the grill is touching the floor, you may need to raise the front of the fridge before removal.

    1. Unplug power.
    2. Remove two screws holding grille, either on top of the front edge of the outer case or in the grille itself.
    3. The grille should lift right out. In not, you may need to pull it to the left about 1/4".
