The process for how to disassemble your Samsung refrigerator drawers is not complicated, but it does require that you complete a few steps.
Since refrigerators are used so often within most households, it is crucial to keep this appliance clean. However, cleaning a Samsung refrigerator drawer with double plastic layers can be difficult.
This is why it is important that you know how to disassemble these drawers completely by taking the front panel and white plastic pieces apart and then how to reassemble it after you have cleaned it.
How important is it to keep your refrigerator clean?
Your refrigerator is most likely one of the appliances in your home that you use each and every day. It is imperative that you clean your refrigerator every few months, so that bacteria and other germs do not build up inside it.
This will protect your food from getting contaminated and it will ensure that everything in your refrigerator stays as fresh as possible for as long as possible.
How to disassemble Samsung refrigerator drawers
Although wiping down the inside of your refrigerator and cleaning out any large messes can go a long way in making your refrigerator look and feel more sanitary, you can also do a more thorough cleaning that involves getting into all of the hard-to-reach spaces of the fridge.
If you have a Samsung refrigerator, you may notice that the crisper drawers at the bottom of your refrigerator have a double plastic layer that can be quite challenging to clean.
Since these drawers have a main drawer with a front panel that slides on, a small bit of food and even some moisture can get trapped in between these layers of plastic.
The process to disassemble the Samsung refrigerator drawers should be approached with a lot of patience, as you need to be quite gentle to avoid damaging the drawer or scratching the plastic while you are taking it apart.
To disassemble these drawers, you can remove the front panel and any white plastic pieces that are attached to this panel, before reassembling the entire drawer and placing it back in the refrigerator.
However, there is some finesse involved in this disassembly process and it can be quite helpful to look at each step in detail.
How to take the front panel off Samsung refrigerator drawers
Your first step when you want to disassemble the drawers of your Samsung refrigerator should be to take the drawers out of the refrigerator, so that you can access the clips that keep the front panel in place and empty the drawers for easier manoeuvring and cleaning.
You then need to flip the drawers upside-down, so that you can see the clips on the bottom corners of the drawer. Then, take a flat screwdriver and gently wedge it inside of these clips until the panels are released from each other.
The first time you do this, it will feel a bit odd, but once you have the hang of the angle and pressure that you need, the process will go much smoother and faster the next time.
Once the clips have released, you can just pull the front panel off of the rest of the drawer to disassemble these big pieces.
How to take the white plastic pieces out of the front panel of a Samsung refrigerator drawer
The disassembly of the drawer of your Samsung refrigerator is not complete when you have removed the front panel.
Most Samsung refrigerator models also have white plastic pieces that are connected to this panel, which you also need to remove to be able to clean these pieces properly and to have the drawer entirely disassembled.
Fortunately, this process is similar to the process of removing the front panel. Simply lay the front panel face down on a counter and use the same flat screwdriver to push on and disengage the clips that are on the white plastic piece and lift it up and out of the front panel.
How to reassemble the drawer for your Samsung refrigerator
After you have disassembled and cleaned the drawer, you need to reassemble the drawer again to get it back into place in your Samsung refrigerator.
To do this, you first need to snap the white plastic piece back into place. It is best to snap the bottom clips into place first and then to push down on the rest of the piece to get it into place.
Then, you need to reattach the front panel. It is best to place the top hinges in place first and the clip the bottom clips in by pushing down on the panel. You will know the drawer has been reassembled when you hear the clips click into place.
