  1. Open the drawer

    Pull the drawer toward you and make sure nothing is preventing the drawer from opening and closing properly. Look under the drawer to familiarize yourself with the hardware and tracking that holds the drawer in place.

  2. Push the orange clips inward

    Look for the orange clips located on both tracks beneath the backside of the drawer face. Push the clips inward to release the drawer from its tracking.

  3. Pull the drawer

    Pull the drawer toward you until it’s completely removed from the tracking component. Push the tracking back inside the drawer cavity so you don’t accidentally bump into to it and damage it. Clean the drawer, and put it back in place.

  4. Adjust the hinges

    Periodically, you should also tighten hinge screws because they can become loose over time with normal wear and use.
