Cannot remove plastic skids from under my new whirlpool fridge

Help I cannot remove the plastic skids from underneath my brand new whirlpool refrigerator. the skids (grey in color ) appear to be made to prevent execessive movement during shipping. I looked at the skids as closely as the fridge would allow for any set screws or any other thing that may lock these skids on

The skids are bolted to the refrigerator from underneath. I think they are 13mm or so, you need a friend to help you tilt the fridge and then unbolt them from the bottom.

I have a Zub Zero 650 refrigerator (top) freezer (bottom) that is 10 years old. The ice maker has a grey plastic arm to the upper right. Ours appears to be broken off at one end. On one side of this...

Yes, they should look the same. This bracket helps to turn the ice maker off to prevent over flow. Guessing by the age I believe you have a 650 or a 650-2. The part number for this is 7014671 and it is called a ice maker rudder arm. Go to to locate your local parts supplier. If you look inside the door jamb you will see your model and serial number. Give this to the parts house to ensure you get the proper arm.

How to I remove the drip pan underneath the refrigerator? Whirlpool gs2shaxnl

If your defrost condensate pan is not reachable by hand, you cannot remove it. this is going to be the case with 80% of newer fridges made after 2000. some whirlpools you can reach it by removing the front toe plate, but more often than not, manufacturers now fasten the pan to the bottom, to prevent you from removing it, since it us usually not necessary now as it once was. Why do you feel the need to remove your condensate pan anyway, this is rarely required. I run a refrigerator repair service in Chicago and can help further if you require.

Remove protective film wrap from under water dispenser faceplate

I have this same model and was facing the same issue. I even emailed Whirlpool but that didn't help.

You can remove the faceplate by removing the spill tray and unscrewing the two small screws in the bottom. Be careful not to scratch the finish while removing the screws.

The faceplate is held on by several plastic hooks around all edges. Carefully grip the bottom of the faceplate (I put my thumbs on the inside where the spill tray was and my index finger below the bottom front of the faceplate). Get a good grip by pinching the faceplate and pull down and out to remove the bottom. Then push the faceplate up to unhinge the top.

You can let the faceplate hang by the wires while you remove the plastic. I'd also use a stainless steel cleaner while the faceplate is off to get rid of any fingerprints you may have left behind.

To reinstall, hang the faceplate on the top 3 hooks making sure there is a snug fit. Then pull down on the bottom and push it in. It took me two tries to get it back on.

The plastic is stronger than it looks but you'll still have to go slow and be careful with it. Good luck!

When this area gets very hot, it's usually because of inadequate air flow across the condenser coils under the refrigerator. Check to see if the condenser fan has stopped blowing underneath. Remove any obstructions or replace the fan motor if it has stopped. Also clean any accumulation of dust from the coils. The refrigerant line runs down the divider at the front of the unit to warm it slightly and prevent condensation and/or frost there, but it should not be noticeably hot.
