    Most common repairs needed to fix a KitchenAid freezer

    Shelves Replacement

    Broken freezer shelves can impede the movement of a freezer drawer in several ways. The shelf serves as a structural support for the items stored on it and contributes to the overall stability of the freezer's interior. When a shelf is broken, it may sag or lose its proper alignment, causing the drawer above or below it to encounter resistance when being pulled out or pushed in. Additionally, fragments or protruding edges from the broken shelf can obstruct the path of the drawer, hindering its smooth movement. This obstruction not only affects the ease of access to items inside the drawer but also poses a risk of further damage to the drawer or other components if force is applied to overcome the resistance.


    Door Replacement

    A drawer problem in your freezer could be caused by a damaged door. The door can hit against a drawer when closing and cause damage. A Sears Home Services Technician can visit your home and examine the door. Sometimes simple door adjustment will fix the drawer problem. The technician will replace the door if adjustments don’t fix the issue.

    Ice Maker Assembly Replacement

    A drawer problem in the freezer can be caused by a bad ice maker assembly. If the ice maker fails to eject a batch of frozen ice cubes in its mold and then activates the water fill valve to fill the ice mold, the fill water will spill out of the ice mold and leak into the freezer. The leaking water can freeze around a drawer and keep it from opening. Replacing the ice maker assembly will fix this type of drawer problem. When your freezer has a drawer that won't pull out, have a Sears Home Services Technician visit your home and fix the issue.

    What to expect when you experience a KitchenAid freezer drawer problem issue

    How is the drawer problem fixed?

    Correcting most drawer problems usually involves replacing the shelves, door or ice maker assembly. However, there are many potential causes, so a thorough diagnosis is key to fixing the problem. An accurate diagnosis is essential to understanding how much the repair will be.

    Sears Home Services recommendations for a freezer drawer problem

    When the freezer has a drawer problem it can be for many reasons. To avoid replacing unneeded parts we recommend having a Sears Home Services professional perform diagnostic tests to identify the root cause of the problem. Our technicians are experienced at diagnosing all types of freezer failures.

    What to look out for with a freezer drawer problem diagnosis

    Diagnosing modern appliances without proper knowledge and training can be difficult. Without using proper diagnostic techniques, fixing your freezer problem will only be achieved through changing parts on a hunch. Appliances, especially in the last 10 years, have become extremely advanced, and many models have electronic parts that are difficult to test. DIY repairs on the latest appliance models are becoming increasingly difficult.
