How to Remove Frigidaire Bottom Freezer Drawer

To remove the drawer from your Frigidaire bottom freezer, follow this guide:

Remove Door

Open the freezer drawer and unthread the screws holding the door panel to the door rails. Use a 3/8″ socket.

Now, place the front panel of the drawer door on a non-scratching surface. If you have none, overlay any flat surface with a carton or towel.

Remove Freezer Basket and Ice Bucket

To remove the basket, lift it at the back first. Then, lift the front part of the basket and carry out the entire basket from the drawer. Do the same for the ice bucket.

Inside the freezer drawer, the basket is resting on a frame. Release the retaining clips holding the basket frame to slide it out.

Remove Freezer Drawer

To remove the freezer drawer, unthread the two hex-head screws on the left and right sides of the drawer. Do not remove the screw at the center of the freezer drawer; it is a factory adjustment.

Next, holding the two sides of the drawer, lift it. That will separate the freezer drawer railing from its railing assemblies.

In some models, the drawer may not have screws but retaining clips securing it. Just remove the retaining clips and remove the drawer.

Afterward, unscrew the roller support bar, and push the railing assemblies back to their locking position.

If you want to reinstall the freezer drawer, follow these steps in reverse order.

First, open the freezer drawer completely. Next, lift the basket from the back, then the front, and remove the basket from the freezer drawer. This method will work if your appliance is a Frigidaire bottom-freezer.

However, for models like the upright freezer, the process of removing the basket is different. When you open the appliance, slide out the glass covering of the basket.

Then, proceed to slide out the basket. Halfway through, you may need to slightly lift the basket up to free it from its stopper.
