Installing the Bins and Shelves

How to Properly Install Bins and Shelves in Your KitchenAid Refrigerator

The bins or shelves may not open or close properly if they have not been installed correctly. Read the following tips to ensure shelves and bins are steady in your refrigerator.

To put the crisper drawer or shelf in the correct position in your full-size refrigerator:

  • Pull the drawer or shelf out to full extension
  • Tilt up the front of the drawer or shelf and pull to remove.
  • Replace the drawer or shelf into the frame rails and push it back into place.


To remove and replace a shelf or shelf frame, follow these instructions:

  1. Remove the shelf/frame by tilting it up at the front and lifting it out of the shelf supports
  2. Replace the shelf/frame by guiding the rear shelf hooks into the shelf supports
  3. Tilt the front of the shelf up until the rear shelf hooks drop into the shelf supports
  4. Lower the front of the shelf and make sure that the shelf is in position
