LG LRFD22850 Replacing support grid for bottom crispers in refrig. Need help.

My support grid for the bottom crisper drawers broke. I bought a new one but now I cannot figure out how to get the plastic lids for the drawers back in place above where the drawers slide in and out. Any ideas?

    followed the instructions to remove the crisper door... "pull all the way out and lift ". When lifted gently the first time heard a crack. Unit never would pull out so we removed top glass and entire grid and two drawers removed as unit. Very apparent why lifting up breaks the lateral roller and drawer still will not disengage. The retaining tab which prevents the drawer from falling out on its own is too long. Lifting up physically far enough is an impossibility. If they are not standing by this machine do not purchase their televisions, phones, etc. The reason we purchased LG tv's, electronics, etc. was the durability of their cell phones. This will set them back with Samsung, Whirlpool, and almost, Kenmore.

    Had the exact same problem, and found this thread by googling the problem. My LG fridge is supposedly still under warranty, but the warranty people said this item is not covered because there's no evidence that the support grid for the crispers is faulty. Yet I am finding the same issue reported all over the internet. In this case, I guess, the customer is always wrong. Good luck fixing your unit...or better yet, keeping it fixed.

    When pulling out the produce/meat drawers to clean, the wheels broke off of the part that is attached to the fridge, where the drawers slide into. I need to replace.

It is a challenge to replace those grids.  Instead of trying to fit the support grids into the frame, bend the frame slightly to fit the grids.  You will need to remove the steel support from the frame before bending the frame.  That is what I have been able to do when I have those problems.

The shelf frame is cracked . It can be purchased if the part is still available from LG . I wouldn't hold out hope though because LG is notorious for discontinuing parts after 3 years. Find a parts supplier who has contact with LG parts to see if it's still available . I was able to order one for my customer back in the spring.

Shut the air flow into the crispers if you can. If not, turn the refrigerator temperature warmer by just a few degrees. The air into the fridge from the freezer is channeled into the crispers.

Things freezing in the back of the crisper drawers

this isn't a great solution but hopefully it will help you some. it's not uncommon for the drawers to freeze up in light usage situations i.e just 2 people no small children not alot of door openings etc. there is an insulation kit available for this but in my experience it really is not a big help. first off you may set the refrig temperature to a warmer setting like 39 and then more door openings.
Keep in mind that when engineers designed these refrigs. they base their designs on average family of 4-5 with alot of door openings. like i said not a great answer but hopefully it will help ya some thx peyton

open the freezer compartment loo for ice build up on floor of frezer especally towards rear behind back panel. sounds like you have a clogged/frozen defrost drain tube. removing back panel of freezer will give you acess to drain trough, melt away the ice with a hair dryer, youll find a drain hole under there somwhere,pouring boiling water down the drain will clear it pretty quickly( i use a steam machine purchased from the infomercials)

this particualr refrig is notorious for this. check your controls ( your freezer control as well set to 4 max) any higher and the refrig is running longer, generating more cold then needed, behind the left hand crisper is a few slots( the fresh air return) by default the coldest spot in refrig, i usuallly would reccomend to my cust not to keep high water or thin walled vegies in there such as carrots cukes tom and lettuce, perfect beer and fresh /frozen defrosting meat to be though, if you ever looked at the newest bottom freezers they've pushed up the drawers and added a deli pantry, running the width of frig
