There are several occasions when it may be necessary to replace a door tray or bottle rack in a fridge:
Over time, a door tray or bottle rack may become damaged, due to frequent use, falling objects or carrying too much weight. If the door tray is cracked, broken or deformed, it can no longer perform its function properly and the door tray may fall when the door is opened. In such a case, it is advisable to replace the door tray.
The door box will start to show wear and tear. Plastic may become brittle or change colour, and the mounting clips may become weaker. If the door box is old and shows signs of wear, it is wise to replace it to avoid further problems.
- Failure to function:
Sometimes, the door tray may not stay in place properly. This may result in the door tray falling or the fridge door not closing properly. If the door tray no longer functions properly, it can cause temperature fluctuations in the fridge, which can affect the freshness and safety of food. In this case, it is wise to replace the door tray to ensure that the fridge continues to work optimally.
Replacing a door tray in a fridge is usually a simple job.
Door bins (like most fridge parts) are generally always available for the well-known brands of fridge.
The door box is usually locked in the door and can be easily detached. Then all you have to do is click the new door bin into place. However, it is important to make sure that the new door tray is suitable for the specific make and model of your fridge.
The type number of your fridge can be found on the type label. This label is usually located at the bottom left, near the vegetable drawers. If you can't find it there, the label may be on the side or back of the fridge.
The type number of the fridge is the correct number to use, not the serial number. The type number usually consists of a combination of letters and/or numbers, possibly with a dash (-) or a slash (/) in between.
