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.

How do you remove the clear plastic cover on the crisper drawer of a Samsung Refrigerator Model RF4287HARS


Yes, the clear plastic front of the crisper drawer can be removed for cleaning. Using a thin-bladed, flat-head screwdriver, pry out at the clear plastic slot at the top outside of the drawer, where the clear front piece meets the tab of the white handle piece. Pry out just enough to get the blade under the slot, and then pry inward at the white tab to release the clear front piece at the top of the drawer. Repeat this procedure on the opposite side, so that the plastic front piece is free at the top of the drawer. Next, turn the drawer over on a counter and work the blade of th screwdriver under the tabs at the bottom of the front plastic piece. These should release easily. Notice the bottom edge has three slots and two sections that are interleaved with the bottom of the drawer. Once you have all three pieces separated, the while u-shaped handle piece, the plastic front panel, and the drawer itself, you can clean and dry them easily. To reassemble, first snap the while handle into place on the drawer, by lining up the top of the drawer to the while handle part first. The top of the handle fits over two plastic extensions on th top of the drawer, then swings down to cover the front sides of the drawer. Then reattach the bottom of the front plastic panel to the bottom of the drawer, interleaving the overlapping parts and snapping the tabs in place. Then snap the top of the front panel over the white handle at the top of the drawer, and you are done!

How to completely clean the Crisper drawer


I don't know if you've already figured out how to remove the front panel on your refrigerator crisper bin, but here it is. Once the drawer is removed, pull back those clips on the top left & right of the front of the drawer.Just hold the side and pull back at the same time, then you can remove it. Once both side have been released you should be able to remove the clear plastic front and clean both pieces. I hope that is clear enough. Best of luck, unless of course you've already discovered the answer yourself.

Pull out your WIDE-N-FRESH Deli Drawer at the bottom, and when the lid automatically raises look to the right: you'll find a sliding temperature controller that most likely is all the way up. Slide it down towards the bottom and this will cut back on the cool. Worked for ours!

Need plastic handle on Rival Crockpot lid.


For what it's worth, when the handle on my mother-in-law's crockpot broke, I went to Home Depot and bought a cheap wooden drawer knob (about $1 as I recall). I put a plastic washer between the knob and the glass and another under the screw head from the bottom (to prevent cracking the lid), tightened the screw and good as new.

Amana Bx22s5W freezes food in the crispers


I've had the same issue with an Amana BX21TL. In my case, the problem was that the various air flow adjustments were all directing the cold air to the bottom of the fridge, underneath the vegetable crispers.

What I've done to fix this was:
1- Made sure there was a tight seal between the vent opening at the back of the fridge (at about mid-height) and the rubber/plastic duct that directs air to the meat/cheese drawer.
2- Made sure that the adjustable opening at the back of the meat/cheese drawer was fully open.
3- Made sure that the adjustable opening at the back of both vegetable crispers were fully open.

Hope this helps.
