I have the 700 TC and the deli drawer has been a wobbly fit since my contractor installed it, until the drawer finally came of the tracks. My hubby tried to fix it first and he removed the sliding track parts from the track pieces that are attached to the drawer. Here's how I fixed it:

First, notice there is a white end cap on the removeable track pieces. Also notice that the white metal track that runs the length of each track piece is supposed to line up around two grooves that stick out toward the front part of the attached drawer track. Take the end of the detached track piece that is open (no white end cap) and line the track up around the two grooves. Slide the detached track piece all the way back, in place around the grooves. It should snap into position at the end, so when you pull the track out, the attached track slides along with it and stops before you can pull the whole piece out (the way a well made drawer stops so you can't pull it all the way out when you are using it). Do this for both detached tracks if they have both been removed, and if they are attached be sure they are snapped in and sliding correctly, and stopping as described.
Next you will put the drawer in. Because the refrigerator door is in the way, this was tricky. My door opens from the center out to the right, so the right part of the drawer could not be directly put on the track because the refrigerator door was in the way. First slide the easier drawer side (for me, the left) over the metal track. The top of the metal track holds the drawer. The plastic drawer has 3 grooves that grip the three metal grooves on the track. Where the metal track grooves upward, the plastic grooves grab it underneath, and vice versa. To get the right side of the drawer in place properly, I had to work from the side, lifting and lowering the plastic grooves up over and under the metal track. I'm pretty sure this is the step that my contractor didn't complete, because before I got the drawer on the track correctly it was sliding the way it did when he installed it. This might be easier for a woman to do - someone with smaller fingers who can get into the space easier. Anyway, I hope this is helpful. I think it will make sense if you read this while you are looking at the drawer parts. So glad my deli drawer is finally functioning properly.

Hi i have the 700tc as well,,ok the best way to place the drawer,,,extend the 2 sliders all the way out,,there is one pin at the end of each slider and 1 hole on each side of the drawer lip which lays on the track ,,,the holes on the drawer must fall into the pins otherwise it will not close,,,so place the drawer on top of the slider ,,,what usually happens is the sliders tend to roll back into the housing of the fridge,,,so while the drawer is resting on the sliders reach under the lip of the drawer and pull each slider until the the holes of the drawer falls into the pins,,,when the drawer is seated in the pins it will close smooth,,,hope this helps

Custom cool drawer sliding mechanism broke


Most of the rail slides, when they break apart, cannot be repaired. It would be better to replace the complete assembly.

Need to take off u-line 2075 drawer refrigerator doors - how?


Hi
Frost in u-line drawer dwrr models happens because of 3 things. The most common is that the drawer wasnt sealing properly. At the ends of the slides you see a white plastic end. This is called door closers. Remove your drawers,Unplug the top drawer. Then remove the closers on all slides. Take a small screw driver then push on the top of the slide. You should see a piece of the closers. While pushing down pull the ends out.You see the hook and spring, sometimes the hooks get off track and keep the drawer from closing. By keeping them out this should help. Also if you have vegetables keep them in sealed containers. The 3rd thing is you have the display set at 34 and this will cause the unit to run 100% of the time. Recomend 36 degrees.

Kenmore Elite bottom freezer drawer won't shut


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.

Bottom drawer does not properly close


Okay, I fixed it for now. The design for this bottom freezer drawer is not good. What happened was most likely that my son slammed the door, and it bounced and was slightly open. Overnight, ice started to form all over the compartment, including inside the drawer guides. Some ice was probably obstructing the drawer glide from sliding shut.

What I did, not thinking this was the solution, was to prop chairs against the drawer to close it while I searched for answers on the Internet. In the meantime, some of this ice must have refrozen in the closed position (due to the weight of the chairs). When I went to check it later, I had a little trouble opening the drawer. I gave it a hard yank and some small frost flew off, as I opened the drawer.

It was not easy sliding it due to the frost. I then moved it out and in until it felt smooth, and finally closed the drawer and it stayed in the shut position.

Kids are instructed to close the drawer gently and visually check that it is sealed. There is also an air passage between the refrigerator unit and the freezer so that when you close the double french doors, some air pushed to the freezer section and momentarily pops the drawer open. You should make sure that the drawer closes before leaving the kitchen. If you are on vacation, prop chairs to make sure both the freezer drawer and the french doors stay closed. This is important if you're in an earthquake area as a small tremor could open the doors and you'll get a fire when the lights stay on and burn through the wiring (as others have noted).
