- Frigidaire product manuals refer to door shelves as bins, due to their bin-like shape. These bins attach to a fridge door at the sides, where small plastic tabs lock into devices located on the fridge door. Most Frigidaire fridges offer adjustable bin positioning. Replacement bins for Frigidaire fridges are available from authorized Frigidaire retailers and service providers, as well as the company itself. A number of online retailers sell generic Frigidaire replacements. Installing a generic part may affect your warranty.
- Frigidaire offers varying warranties on its refrigerators. All Frigidaire fridges come with a one-year warranty, though you can purchase an extended warranty by contacting the company. If your fridge falls under an up-to-date warranty, Frigidaire provides replacement parts and labor for any problems, including broken door bins, as long as you use the item in accordance with instructions provided by the manual. Contact Frigidaire directly to arrange for fridge inspection or the delivery of replacement parts. To ensure an up-do-date warranty, register your product with Frigidaire through the company’s website.
- If you own an out-of-warranty fridge, Frigidaire provides no replacement parts or labor. However, the official brand website provides information on authorized Frigidaire dealers and servicers. With an expired warranty, you face no risk of voiding the warranty by using generic parts. Therefore, if you prefer replacing your broken bin with a generic part, go ahead. Make sure when ordering or purchasing replacement parts that the new part matches the exact dimensions of the original part.
- Do-it-yourself remedies may exist for fixing a broken Frigidaire door bin. Before using any DIY method, keep in mind that if you possess a valid warranty, using something like a paper clip instead of the tab on the side of your bin may violate the terms of the warranty. You can always repair a cracked fridge door bin with duct tape or a bond-forming material like plastic epoxy. If your fridge door contains multiple bins, you can also simply remove the broken bin for additional storage space for tall items like wine bottles.
