Hello,

Whenever I pull out the top rack, the front right wheel falls off the guide, see Attached File  rack fall.jpg   127.7KB   9 downloads. I can snap it back in without issue, but when it falls and the rack is full, it puts a bit of strain and I'm expecting something else to break.

I took the rack out and noticed that the plastic guide attached to the rack is a bit warped at the front, see Attached File  guide.jpg   46.61KB   9 downloads. I assume this is from heat and several years of use.

I thought that maybe the wheels holding the metal channel to which the plastic guide attaches were loose and allowing it to move excessively, but this doesn't seem to be the case.

Should I simply replace this plastic channel, part #22 on http://c.searspartsd...02052-00004.png and expect the problem to be solved?

Muchas Cervezas,
TommasoPrimo

Hola, Tommaso,

I think you just need to replace the stop clip ==> Dishrack Stop Clip
