To access the inside of the pedestal two screws are what need to be removed. These screws have a nut so you will need a wrench as well as a screw driver. The screws are located at the front of the metal rail on each side, that the drawer rides on. Empty the drawer, remove the screws and slightly lift and pull the drawer free.

The part responsible is the little white square box called a 'Latch' located at the front bottom of the casing, in the middle held by two screws. A black 'strike' on the door inserts into this Latch. If the strike is good the latch should be the problem. I took this part to Lowe's where I purchased my units. I found that this wasn't under my warranty, but they called and ordered the part for free. I just have to wait 7 days, I hope they ordered the right part!

Strike Part Number: 137006900

Latch Part Number: 137006200


Here is a web page with a break down of the parts: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Electrolux-Parts/All-Products-Parts/Model-EPWD15RR2/1412/0153050/R1007111/00001

Hoping the web page isn't against any rules, if so I'm sorry...

Drawer will not stay closed


Hello David, I am JK. I understand that you are having trouble with the drawer staying closed on your pedestal. I would recommend checking to make certain that nothing is caught under the pedestal keeping the drawer from closing properly. If this is not the concern, the strike and/or latch might need to be replaced.
Hope this helps!

Hitachi ax-m71 cd door won't stay closed. Unable


if it opens back up when you close it the drawer mechanism is probably out of alignment. Most players have a slot on the bottom of the drawer that a pin must slide in. Look under the drawer and see if there is a pin sticking up that maybe should be in that slot.

The cd drawer won't stay closed


the cd drawer will probably use infra-red to sense when the drawer is open or closed or maybe just a gear mechanism, either way these must be clean, I'd take it apart and lean it all with cotton buds and isopropyl alcohol

My bathroom drawer used to stay closed, but with pulling by my toddler, it now slides open on its own. How can I adjust or tighten to make it stay closed?


the track rails appear to have come loose. Remove the drawer place a level on the track rail and tighten or reinstall the screws which held it in place. There will be one set of screws for single track drawers or one on each side of a two rail drawer.

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).

Freezer door wont stay closed.


If you can pull the freezer drawer out, check to see if there is anything on the floor of the freezer. You can also try reinstalling the drawer. When you take the drawer out make sure that the spring loaded door catches on the sides are facing towards you. That is if it has any.
