Kitchen Aid Refrigerator Freezer Drawer Hard to Open or Close

Problem:Kitchen Aid Refrigerator freezer drawer seems to bind when halfway open or closed.

Cause: This may be due to the slide width being narrower than the basket width.

Correction: Use the tolerance in the slide bracket and drawer holes to aid in relaxing the bind.

  1. Shut Off the Refrigerator.
  2. Remove the basket/door assembly from the refrigerator via the four 5/16” screws,
  3. Cycle the slides individually to confirm that the slide itself has not failed.
  4. Proceed to loosen the four 3/8” bolts attaching the slide bracket to the cabinet on each side.
  5. Push and hold each slide towards the wall and retighten the bolts.
  6. When reinstalling the basket/door assembly to the slides get all 4 5/16” screws started, then as tightening them down lift up on the basket .
  7. Turn on the refrigerator
