Racks in the freezer are too narrow

The shelving racks in the freezer side don't really fit (side to side). They are so narrow the racks often collapse on the ones below. What's the fix?

    OK....great idea, but how do you remove those rails? They're solid - molded into the side panel. Do you have to pop that panel outa there? And if so, what's the secret to doing that? I checked it out and it looks like it's sealed all the way around. Thanks!

Try removing the rails form one side and installing plastic spacers, you should only need one or 2 to compensate,

We can't get our flat oven racks in our wall oven - our electrician in to look and he wondered if they were the wrong ones.


We really need a tiny bit of clarification.... Do the oven racks go in at all? Most oven racks have a "bend" in the rear of the rack that requires you to lift up the front as you insert it into the tracks. There is a "bump" at the front of the tracks that this bent part of the rack needs to go under. This is in order to keep the racks from falling out if pulled out too far when removing items. If your racks are either too wide or too narrow to fit at all, then you likely have the wrong racks.
Hope this was helpful, and if it was please thumbs up my response.

Wine racks have rusted from moisture coming from back panel--don't know why there is moisture, or if the racks are replaceable


If the racks are removable, you can paint them with appliance epoxy paint sold
in spray cans by Rustoleum. It works well. I use it for refrigerator shelves at work.
Just be sure to wire brush or sand the racks before painting and allow sufficient
time to dry.

Freezer Shelves are too small for freezer and keep falling when I put food on them...


I had the same problem with the freezer sheles being too small in my GE Profile side by side. The shelves would simply collapse down with any weight on them.
After measurng the gap, I determined that the shelves were approximately 7/16" too narrow.
The fix I did was simple, effective, and very cheap.
I bought a roll of clear flexible polyethylene tubing at Lowes for about $5.The tubing is 3/8" outer diameter, 1/4" inner diameter (see picture below).
I cut pieces to fit along the side rails of the shelf, and then sliced the tube pieces down their length with a utility knife. I wrapped the pieces around the outside rails on each side of the shelf. It took a little work, but I got the tube pieces attached.
In a few spots, I did a double wrap of tubing.
The shelves fit tightly now and can hold significant weight without collapsing. Plus, they don't look too bad.
I hope GE fixes this simple problem in the future.
