  • How to remove the drawer to fix alignment?

    This goes along with NW's attention to detail, or lack there of. I am finally loading up our new 27-5L and noticed that the left side of my deep drawers were jiggly with weight in them. I had recently read somewhere on here that there was an alignment problem. Getting my flashlight out I can see in the back where this seems to be the problem for my unit too but, I don't know how to remove the drawer. Once I get the drawer out I think I just have to move the back piece over some so the slide on the drawer itself can go into it properly. Can someone tell me how to remove it without breaking it, please? Thanks!
    (This will also let me vacuum in there too!)

    If you slide the drawer out to the stop, you can then find a tab on each side of the two slides. They are small plastic tabs sticking out in the track pointing forward. One needs to be pushed up and the other down to release the drawer from the slide portion that stays in the drawer hole. When putting it back in just line the drawer up and it will lock in place once it is fully closed.

        I canít quite see in your photo but check that each end has two screws in it. If it doesnít they will continue to move a bit over time while traveling.

            Before putting in another screw make sure the guides are square to the opening and equal distant apart, front to back.

              And level front to back also.

                      Well, Teresa, it is fun. Just think of all the fun new things you are learning to do and feel good about being able to handle. :-)

                        Well, guess what? It wasn't broken after all...I don't think! I feel a little foolish. When I went to fix it (it took me several days to get up my nerve to try and tackle it) I decided to put the rail back into the bracket in the back to see how far off it was again and, to my surprise, it went all the way in just fine! I don't know why they weren't all the way in in the first place, which makes me wonder if they will pop out again or were they like that from the factory? In any event, I will have my eye on them and am praying all will be well.

                        Thanks for everyone's help!

                          They pop out of the brackets because they are not equal distant, front to back.

                            Teresa,
                            GeoBoy is correct. Make sure the distance between the tracks is the same in the front as the back. I use these brackets all the time and the slides snap in pretty snug. It may be that they just didn't snap in correctly the first time. It can happen. Snap it in tight and then measure. You might just luck out.

                              A little added plywood really helps keep them in place. This one is of my kitchen drawer slides. I usually run parallel to the slide using a screw in the slide that lets it conform to center without bowing the slide. It is a tang that sticks out from the slide back that runs from front to back.
