  • How to remove the Classic (BI) crisper shelf
  • Can the BI crisper shelf be installed backwards?
  • Install the BI shelf above the crisper drawers


The Classic series (BI) crisper glass shelf rests on shelf standoffs that are mounted to the refrigerator side walls.

To Remove:

  1. Lift the crisper glass shelf straight up off the standoffs.
  2. Pull shelf forward and out of compartment.
    • If door is stopped at 90°, the shelf may need to be taken out at an angle.
    • Removing the door shelves will help in removal.
    • For the French door model, drawer slides may need to be pushed back manually to provide sufficient clearance for removal.

To Install:

Set the crisper glass shelf back onto the shelf standoffs.

  • It is not possible to install the shelf backwards.
  • The channels on the bottom of the shelf will not line up with the standoffs if it is in backwards.
  • The shelf will sit down on to the standoffs and will not move when properly installed.
